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?”

Hob actually did a good job in his blog of dissecting what was a completely illogical choice by King. This guy is the biggest armchair QB hackjob in sports writing.

Steelers are at #12, they lost good players (see Limas Sweed to IR), and their starting QB is out for 6 games. Yet they are 11 spots higher the the Division champs who beat them down 2 times last year and improved or stayed the same at all positions. Hmmm.

Guys who are ripping Carson out there like King are the same guys who did not actually watch him play, just looked at the stat line. People who watched every game and saw the many game winning drives witnessed the laser rocket arm, when Brat finally let it loose because there was no other choice. Dropped balls, poor pass blocking, and no one else who could get open besides Chad, resulting in a more run heavy gameplan... it doesn't take a genious to see what held us down in the pass game. Screw it, no use talking... we'll see whose right in a few months. Let's go carson.

Do yourself a favor and watch this.

King worships Tom Brady and the Patriots. So much so, in fact, that King's breath smells of Brady's sphincter. At first glance at this enormous pile of garbage that he wrote, I was angry. After thinking on it, I laughed. It's such a joke. Why?
1.) King hates the Bengals. He used to be their beat writer and probably was treated like shit by the Browns in some capacity and has held it against them for years.
2.) He loves the Patriots. Everytime he's on TV or radio, he mentions Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and/or the Patriots somehow. I liken it to Madden always talking about Favre.
3.) His voice is like nails on a chalkboard.
4.) God hates him--see #3.

If you want solice from King's idiocy, you should read Pete Prisco's power rankings from last week or so on cbssportsline.com. He had the Bengals at #10 and Ravens at #11. Very logical, in my opinion.

I agree with both of you guys a lot. However Artrell, I do have to respectfully decline the notion of Limas Sweed being a good player lost. The man torched our coverage to be wide open in the end zone only to drop a touch down that would have put the lead out of reach.

I also have to agree with Sly in reference to the message boards of here and PFT. While I do check PFT on a daily basis for league wide information, I think it's a mental death sentence to try and have a real conversation with anybody about the story. Almost everybody who posts on this site makes a decent point and will be respectful to one another. I'd say there aren't too many sites besides this one that you don't need a moderator in the comment section to break up stereotypical slurs and nerd fights.

True but combine Limas Sweed with the Steelers trading Santonio Holmes... they are not a dynamic receiving core. Hines is getting older though he's still tough.

My biggest concern with our WRs is that we have too many options and the right guys may not have a chance to emerge. If Matt Jones continues to play as well as reported from early throwing camp, do you displace Andre Caldwell when he may just be coming into his own this year with some more experience under his belt? What about Jordan Shipley? I guess we have room for four receivers to play quite a bit... just hope the right guys don't get lost in the shuffle, because it seems like we have a real battle for #3. Hope Matt Jones pans out b/c Carson has made it clear on many occasions how much he likes a large target at WR...

For what it's worth, Rod Woodson just declared Hall and Joseph to be the best starting CB duo in the league, above the easy pick of Woodson/Harris in GB and the sexy pick of Revis/Cromartie in New York.
