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?”

As humorous as that article was, I can't believe it's still sitting at the top of the front page, occupying valuable real estate that could've been used to promote the fact that every intelligent Bengals fan's worst nightmare won't be coming to pass. In two tangentially related news stories, not only did the Browns sign Ghiachuc, as mentioned above, the Bengals inked a one-year extension with Kyle Cook. And while Cook hasn't developed into the next Rich Braham, he had a very solid first season as a starter and has a definite upside. Plus, he's not Eric Ghiachuc. I can't stress that enough, so let me repeat it: KYLE. COOK. IS. NOT. ERIC. GHIACHUC.

Whew. I know I won't be waking up in cold sweats in the middle of the night anymore. With Mike Brown's revolving door signing policy, you had to at least fear the possibility that he'd be back, but that's now been tabled for at least another year.

Also, I really like that SI.com is running a claim from Santurdio's lawyer that he sent evidence to the police that will exonerate his client. Really? A lawyer said that? What did you expect him to say - "my client's guilty as sin and we're hoping for a loophole to get him out of trouble"?
