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'm hoping Odom is out of there in 2 years because I am really excited about a Johnson-Dunlap-Atkins-Peko-Sims D-Line rotation.

Are the Bengals finally young and talented at the D-Line position?

Dunlap is a big athletic guy and even though I hate Gators, has talent. Dunlap and Michael Johnson are the kind of guys that you could have imagined the Giants taking. Talented pass rushers who can develop and come in during certain situations at first.

A 3rd down D-Line with Atkins Dunlap and Johnson is good stuff.

Pat Sims is part of a good situation too.

Very good deal for the Bengals on the D-Line in my opinion.

1. You either have Narcolepsy, or you don't. It's never 'occasional', its the physiological inability to progress from REM sleep into the 'deep' sleep cycle. He should ask Sergio Kindle about it. Fix the apnea and Odom'll no longer be tired.

2. Sleep apnea is most easily dealt with by sleeping on your stomach, and usually a better holistic option - because being hooked up to a darth vader mask every night makes you oh so attractive to whomever you share a bed with.

3. Not cleaning your machine is just plain stupidity on his part - like when my little brother neglected to clean his little electric machine for treating cold sores and after four or five uses it had spread across the entire left half of his lips.

Dr. Nick,

Are you retarded? Or 14?

1. Narcolepsy isn't the inability to progress from REM sleep into the "deep" sleep cycle, it's just randomly falling asleep in the middle of a conversation, or while eating, or at some other completely inappropriate time (and by "inappropriate", I mean "when you're not trying to fall asleep). Also, for the record, REM is generally the last step of the sleep cycle, coming *after* delta/deep sleep, and the condition you're talking about is called rapid eye movement behavior disorder. Narcolepsy results because the brain/body slip into REM sleep too soon and disrupt the normal sleep pattern - delta sleep still occurs, but it happens out of sequence, and this wreaks havoc with the affected individual's restfulness. So sleep apnea, which also severely limits a person's ability to reach the delta sleep stage, would create narcolepsy-like symptoms.

2. Sleeping on your stomach is *not* a cure for sleep apnea, nor is it a good holistic option - it misaligns your spine and can cause subluxation (the last 8 weeks of chiropractic treatments convinced me to start sleeping on my back after a subluxated disc in my neck caused me to lose feeling in my left arm). There are several ways to reduce the effects of sleep apnea, from losing weight to having a deviated septum (if present) surgically repaired to using the breathing machine that both Odom and my father (and countless other people) use. And, just for the record, you don't have to wear a "darth vader mask" - my father was having severe claustrophobic bouts with the face mask, so then instead fitted him with a small tube that goes into his nostrils. It's much less conspicuous, and even if it weren't, I'm sure my mother prefers my dad not snoring like a chainsaw in her ear to him not having anything on his face. There's only one "cure" for sleep apnea, and it's neither been proven to be completely effective or disproven to be complete nonsense, and it involves several surgeries on your nasal cavity and both jaws to improve the flow of air throughout your airways. I believe it's a three-step process that takes 18 months or more to complete, so I think the average person is going to wear the mask. My father was actually way worse off than Odom, as he would wake up between 50 and 60 times per hour, making it impossible for him to get any delta sleep (I had to drive him to and pick him up from his sleep study and follow-up, so I got all the dirty details).

3. I actually agree on this point. But you still shouldn't be passing off bad information as good advice.

you guys are idiots if you think odom is the key to our passrush..i love the guy but he was overrated last season 5 sacks against the packers....hes not a pashrusher but a 3down hard worker ala Justin Smith,Most of his sacks came from not giving up on a play where cornerbacks had great coverage vs just blowing up a tackle...

On Narcolepsy - Dude's right, you either have it or you dont. And Odom doesnt. I suspect he fell asleep at the wheel because hadnt slept or booze.

On Odom's "Sleep Apnea"- Whether he actually had a sleep study with a diagnosis of sleep apnea, my bet is that it's a convenient diagnosis to help him with any possible legal ramifications. When NFL teams pay a player millions of dollars, and have several doc physicals, wouldnt chronic fatigue to the point of passing out while driving be worked up? I dont buy some chronic sleep apnea story. Oh, and people dont use CPAP (Constant positive airway pressure) machines at night unless they have significant sleep apnea symptoms (which Im sure Odom doesnt) because it's annoying. Perhaps more annoying than Wyatt's post. Not because of some bacteria BS story. Geoff's an dummy.

On Odom being any good - Dont hold your breath. (bad pun intended)
