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;


    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?”

I jokingly said that the re-signing of Reggie was like getting a decent player and a position coach at the same time. It seems that that's not too far from the truth. I actually think that he'll be more instrumental in Coffman's development than in Gresham's. This is for a couple of reasons: one, Coffman has more of his game to develop than JG does, and Chase seemed to really gravitate to Reggie last offseason (especially in Hard Knocks). On paper, this Tight End group is vastly superior to the Foschi/Coats debacle. Carson should be ecstatic.

Love that RK is back. Whatever they are paying him, it's a steal.

Carl, I'm trying to think of what could possibly be a downgrade from Foschi/Coats. Well, I guess they could have gone with MFB's idea of Coats/Shirley.

What a difference a year makes!

Sadly, the Tight End position is one of the few where the Bengals actually have a good/great position coach (from watching Hard Knocks, it seems like Zimmer, FitzGerald, Hayes, and Alexander are the best coaches on the staff and would be quickly snatched up by other teams if they were available). Still, though, it's great that Gresham/Coffman will have a mentor like Reggie around, and it's even better that Reggie's comfortable in his Kitna role, knowing that this is essentially his last year and still doing everything he can to help the guys who are going to replace him. A true class act, and hopefully he'll be considered for the TE coaching job if Hayes ever defects/retires. They could certainly do a lot worse.

Also, incidentally, is anyone else as interested as I am to see what kind of effect coaching intern Dermonti Dawson (quite possibly the greatest center of the past two decades) is going to have on Kyle Cook?

Major, the first image that hit me when trying to imagine "a downgrade from Foschi/Coats" was a worn-out water heater sitting on a curb.
