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?”

Hey Num Nuts Brat isn't the Joker MJ Is....

Does anyone else want to personally approach Hobson and firmly punch him in the nose every time he refers to Chad as "The Ocho?"

OK are we signing another "Johnson"?...RB for the Vikings. Saw it just now. Mike Brown if we need a good 3 down back look at Brian Westbrook.

Reds sign bullshit this week and now the Bengals.

Man I am frustrated with our teams.

Westbrook is one hit away from forced retirement. Also Westbrook won't want to come in and be 3rd on the depth chart. You can't justify knocking Scott down to third string there is just way too much potential there. My guess is if Leonard is out for an extended time Scott will be the 3rd down back and whoever else they keep will be just backups if Benson or Scott get overworked.

I think after signing Johnson, they are just going to have to wait it out and see who gets cut from other camps. The Redskins will have to let one of their FA guys go.

Confused why is everyone freaking out about Leonard and wanting the bengaks to sign a big name?? If Cosby or Briscoe get hurt you don't trade for Randy moss. We still have our number 1 and 2 healthy and any pickup is just to add a number not a contributor. Leonard was a nice surprise last year but he was our number 3

To the folks bitching about James Johnson, the guy played pretty damn well at th end of 08 in limited snaps, and was pretty good on third down as well. I would rather ahve him on the team than Cordera Eason regardless of injury, same with Peerman. Guy's fast, has hands and has some positive experiences during the regular season. BTW, the Vikings signed him after Chester Taylor got hurt last year, but he was an undrafted FA signed by the Bengals in 08. smart move to go sign him for quality depth. Westbrook is a retarded idea.

Additionally, signing edmonds was smart for Jocketty, as we have a log jam in the OF and the old man is only here short term. He provides depth, a LH bat, and tons of experience to a team that sorely lacks it outside of Rhodes and Rolen and Arroyo. Sorry, couldn't let that one go
