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?”

Antonio Chapman?

Housh is on the trading block!

damn it truth - i was trying to break the truth about housh...what's another 7mil? and it would revive the only legit jersey i have (since my old chaddy jersey is technically passe and of course i can't buy a fanene one because of the wdr embargo...)

somebody brought up a good point about why we picked all these players when there was a good chance there wasn't going to be enough roster spots to keep them all. either trade up to fill a need (safety) or trade players that aren't getting it done (caldwell/collins - though they will probably step it up more and more these next couple of years). i understand the need to be stacked in case of injury, but we can't even keep these guys on the 53, so it's pretty much useless except for maybe as insurance for a horrific training camp. my thought was always that they were going to mysteriously IR ghee, briscoe, and muckleroy, just to save them and the roster spots this year. one of the linemen should make it on the p-squad or IR him too.

they've gotta keep Q. i'm good either way on simpson. and for the love of god at least keep m.jones over one of the qb's.

if we had a less dickish Housh, it would be so effin' sweet though.

On the subject of odds and ends. Hard knocks is worth watching this year to see the Jets' indoor practice facilities and their HQ alone. It really highlights what a second class organization the Bengals are. That and how fat Rex Reed is.

Yes Rich but you do have to remember that all of the Jets offices, training facilities, etc are brand new thanks to the citizens of new York. Compare Dallas new stadium to there old one and it's similar

I'm sure the creators of this site have a massive boner at the news that TJ is on the trading block. They drop the "letting go of TJ in free agency" card as much as possible. I don't really want him back, personally.

People deserve very good life time and business loans or sba loan can make it much better. Because people's freedom relies on money.
