Who Dey Revolution Manifesto

  • Preamble

    IN THIS TIME of perpetual Cincinnati Bengals incompetence and futility, with zero playoff wins in the nineteen seasons since the WhoDeyRevolution Godfather, Paul Brown, passed away in 1991 and handed the team to his fortunate son, the Despot, Mike Brown;

    Introduction

    WE, the members of the Who Dey Revolution, in our fervent dedication to the Cincinnati Bengals and fanatical desire to transform our hometown team into perpetual Super Bowl contenders, call for a popular revolution of fans to demand comprehensive reform to the managerial decisions and approach of Cincinnati Bengals ownership, management, staff and players, and hereby call for the adoption of the following Who Dey Revolution Manifesto:

    Manifesto Demands

    THAT the Mike Brown, Katie Blackburn, Marvin Lewis, along with every other member of the Bengals management, staff and personnel, state publicly to all Bengals fans, “I will do everything in my power to help the Cincinnati Bengals win a Super Bowl;”

    THAT Mike Brown will hire a general manager, drastically expand the scouting department and relinquish all control of player personnel;

    THAT all training, rehabilitation and medical facilities are considered best-in-class compared to other NFL teams;

    THAT the management fill the team only with players who fit the system, both mentally and physically, and are not reluctant to makes changes to player personnel when needed, regardless of cost or loyalty concerns;

    THAT offensive and defensive line depth is considered the top priority for all player personnel decisions;

    THAT all decisions made by ownership, management, staff and players, both on and off the field, are judged only by this criterion: “Does this help the Cincinnati Bengals win a Super Bowl?”

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference I am no draftnik, but I'll have some Maurkice Pouncey please...:

He would be sexy in stripes one of top 6 players I'd like to see.

Who are your other 6?

swb, he is one of six, therefore there cannot be "other 6", just the other 5

Pouncey, among a few other names whose stock has gone way, way up in the past two weeks; is forcing me to relook my personal mock draft before Thursday. While my gut response to this post was extremely negative, you got some really good points. So, in an initial re-scrub of my draft last night want to know what I found out?...

There is a 93.75% chance (that's guttersnake math, so it could be flawed...) that either Pouncey or Iupati will be available at the 21 spot. ...and looking at Pittsburgh’s current need at center, I think that we could, potentially, draft us a Samoan...

My top five are:
1. Iupati - my number one only b/c he is samoan.
2. Pouncey- I never heard of him up to this point, but I guess I wasn't looking at centers. Great point about him adding quality depth to center if Cook goes down. Right now if that were to happen a 10-6 season could quickly go to 6-10.
3. Eric Berry - stud safety with good cover skills, would plug the big hole we have in our secondary. My only grip about him is that his football name sucks. Cincy had a bad history of picking guys with terrible names in the 90's and they never panned out.
4. Taylor Mays - Did not produce in college, but either did Tom Brady. With Zimmer on his case all summer, he could develop into an asset. Plus his name is better than Berry's.
5. Trade down to pick up more picks and get a stud DE at top of the second, and then get the guard from Illinois if he is there with the #2 pick.

SWB,

I did a mock board on my site and left this guy off. I must admit I failed to think of him other than a center. Nice points, he would be good in the interior of the line.

I had also written off Pouncey since he was a center and thought we should continue the Kyle Cook experiment to see if its a fluke, but I like his potential versatility of guard/center. I heard in a couple mock drafts that Pittsburgh was probably going to take him but as guttersnake says, that just means they won't be drafting Iupati. Assuming Iupati and Pouncey are both available to the Steelers and they obviously pick one, drafting the other would be fine in my opinion. Like Pouncey's versatility and Iupati's strength. Also hoping that the Falcons and Texans don't have the same ideas but I don't think they would.

Yes!!! Exactly, take the O line help!!! Simple football logic, immediate impact at a position(s) the team could use some improving in. Iupati or Pouncey please! Like Earl thomas or Eric Berry too, please no WR or TE in the first unless there is just no other logical choice.

Iupati looks to be going to the Raiders at #8, believe it or not.
