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?”

C'mon, SWB, no love for Chaddy's video on si.com that I pointed out a couple of posts down? Not only does he mock the Steelers and Ravens, he says he's still trying to get Mikey Boy to sign to TO, directly stating that there's no salary cap this year (and indirectly implying that Mike Brown is cheap).

I would like to see them sign TO for a one year contract, but not for the amount he is asking (approx $5 mil). If they can get him for $3.5 to $4 mil that would be a deal. It would be great to have an additional tall WR with big game experience in their arsenal. A guy who also can go over the middle.

From watching the OTA videos, I like Shipley a lot, but I would feel a lot better if he could be groomed in the the 4th spot and TO be number 3 this season. But who knows maybe Caldwell takes his game to another level this year...

For some reason, I feel we have a lot of similarities with this Bengals team:

@blesterov

One thing I noticed in that video is that they said the bengals were extremely aggressive. That doesn't happen, and probably won't happen. I think that's holding us back.

@bguy_1986

Surely you're not seriously suggesting that Bob "Run Run Draw Punt" Bratkowski is holding back our beloved Bengals? Why, Bobby B is the longest tenured out of our Big 3 coaches (Marvin, Brat, Zim), so surely he's doing something right, right?

Right?

Oh, wait, there's a reason we call him Bratworst - because he's awful. Can't someone in the 'nati set up a sting and catch him with a transvestite hooker or something? This guy's gotta have some kind of skeletons that can be exposed, forcing Mike "Family Values" Brown to fire/release him.

Great post. Could not agree more on Carson. Those of us who have watched every throw and who can consider the totality of the situation he has dealt with of the past several years understand this. Those of us who watched him deliver missile like strikes to engineer last minute victories multiple times last year get it. And with a full healthy year and healthy offseason (FOR ONCE!) to build, on I really hope this is the year he'll have the chance to prove all the nay-sayers wrong.

@SWB, you missed the best part of that article on MFB talking about the Boss or did not note it....

Yea MFB, you would never agree spending money to win Championships, we all ready realize this and know how you operate and yes, your Bengals fans would not mind if you did it this way if it brought Championships. What a concept! but I knew you would never agree with they way the Boss operated because who would ever want a Super Bowl trophy, right.

“He came to New York just at the right time. Just as cable television was coming on and he was able to harness all that income,” Brown said. “You have to admire what he did, although I don’t agree with it. The Yankees have half a track head start. He was in baseball and I’m in football, so it’s a different kettle of fish.

“I think there’s an imbalance there. It created some issues for all of us, but I don’t think George created those issues. I’m sure the people in New York don’t mind at all. They won a lot of championships with George.”

This is hilarious... video of Jordan Shipley singing a song at Colt McCoy's wedding... I'm really starting to like Shipley.

Question is Cincinnati still looking at T.O.? Just have a strange feeling about T.O.'s agent saying he will be signed in a few weeks. He also stated several teams are interested. It also did not state Cincinnati was not interested. What are your thoughts guys.

Sit on your porch and admire the view without paying attention to your needs; search for knowledge,read more, I think that is very meanful for you because today is important.
