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?”

I'm surprised you didn't comment on the penalties. Jesus, the penalties! I'm glad to see the team picked right up where they left off in 2009. BTW, I totally agree about the QB situation.

Or keep some other guys and maybe cut one or two of the WRs.

The biggest flaw with this plan? Brat.

Completely agree, SWB. I've been saying the same thing with Matt Jones since the drafting of Shipley and Briscoe. Keep 7 WRs (including Cosby) and use Jones as a WR and emergency #2 or #3 QB. Either way, they need to get O-Linemen and a backup QB after other teams make cuts. The offense was BRUTAL to watch last night...

On another note, Michael Johnson is a beast.

Dump the backups (as stated) and go looking up Kurt Warner. It's a good chance that he would be willing to back up -- it's another contract coming his way -- provided that Carson doesn't go down, he makes easy money.

lol wow WCH that is a good solution let's give $10 million plus to Kurt Warner to be our backup??? Seriously?? Let me guess Kurt Warner would come here for 1-2 million for the chance to get to the superbowl.....because he couldn't reached one in Arizona.

Is it me or is this blog getting worse and worse. Either start writing more than just 3 or 4 lines or shut it down all together.

Damn you guys are funny.

Sunday night was very frustrating to watch, but before the game I was going to post on the site that people should not expect too much from the team. It was bad, but not as bad as it looked. Keep in mind the Cowboys had two weeks of camp in their belt; we had one. Also Marvin never plans for opposing teams schemes so the OL always looks bad, and Zimmer only blitzed once or twice with the first team on the field so they were easily picked apart.

Couple of things I liked:
1. M. Johnson - we have talked about his move to SLB all off-season. Zimmer might have hit a home run with this guy. Blitzing him to match him up to a RB may be a QB's worse nightmare. If they can get him to cover, he could be a force. It appeared that he did well against the run.
2. Palmer - yes this sounds out of place. He actually looked good in the pocket and when there was pressure. Last year he would throw floaters off his back foot. In the game, he was looking downfield and was stepping into his throws even with people in front of him. His accuracy was off, but I think he will improve once he gets the rust off and if he can get some time in the pocket.
3. Secondary depth - the upgrades looked good, and they played well throughout the game.

Couple of things I didn't like:
1. The OL looked like like hell. This is part not much practice time, part not preparing for Dallas's schemes & stunts, and part not upgrading the LG spot and having a fat RT that breaks his foot if he puts too much pressure on it.
2. The DL looked like hell. They were consistently blown off the ball. I have faith in Zimmer to correct this asap. No pass rush with the starting four- again Zimmer did not blitz, unless you accept the one time Jones unsuccessfully rushed the passer as a blitz.
3. OL Depth- we are thin. They need to use a lot of draft picks on the OL next year.

Observations:
1. If M. Johnson can step up his game, Rey has to replace Dhani. Enough of this brains crap. Jones is just not a threat to other teams. He can't blitz, he can't cover, and he can't shed blockers.
2. I want to see what Simpson can do with Carson as QB. He was consistently beating the coverage, but no one could get the ball to him.
3. TO & Shipley were good pickups.
