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 liked his comments actually. When I first saw the hit, it definitely was fierce, but I wasn't sure if it was a penalty. This game is about getting hit. Players were hitting far harder years ago and those hits were allowed back in the day.

The game is violent...that is the nature of the beast. Our society is becoming softer, thinking that so many things must be watered down and safe for everybody. That's what happens when football is played..offense looking to score, defense looking to stop them.
There are way too many horrific roughing the passer calls, and other "roughing" penalties that take the joy out of the game for the fans. And today, players have the benefit of medicinal science and better treatment for injuries.

I just enjoyed hearing a coach defend the nature of the game.

I couldn't stop laughing about his Nate Livings comment. It painted such a great mental picture for me. Nate Livings whiffing on his block. Then "making up for it" with a belly flop to the back of the defender's knees. Completely hilarious. I don't know why it's so funny, but the part where he says "make sure you get that down, and watch their guard Nate Livings." I think it's so funny because we get to see other football professionals really seeing just how sucky this guy is.

I'd like to to see Rob get hit from behind, in the endzone, after a play is dead, and get knocked right out of his crappy mullet, and right through his crappy goatee

This is not pee-wee football.

This is not college football.

This is the NFL, a league for a game played by *men*, including by men who are not your kids.

In this league they also hit with the strength of men,
so a cheap shot like that is waa-aay out of line...

You even alluded to taking credit,
suggesting that the cheap shot was a result of your coaching.

You suck

The debate of whether the hit on Shipley was a penalty is ridiculous. Most of it seems to stem from people under the belief that they called helmet to helmet, which isn't true. Ward leveled his shoulder into Shipley's facemask - he targeted the head of a defenseless receiver and plowed away. That's always a penalty, always a fine, and almost always causes at least a minor injury.

He also seems to forget the fact that Ndukwe was called for the same penalty on a hit that looked a heck of a lot cleaner (the guy actually caught the ball, and there was no helmet-to-helmet contact).

Kevin Nash played Super Shredder in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.

That is all.

PFF tidbits for a sunday morning:

Cincinnati Bengals: Nate Livings’ 13 total pressures allowed this season (in 176 pass blocks) is already five more than Evan Mathis allowed in 334 snaps pass blocking in 2009.

Sam: Cincinnati need to fix an O-line that is badly hemorrhaging pressure. Usually that’s a major issue for teams, but the Bengals likely have the answer sitting on the bench. Tampa Bay shouldn’t have enough quality to see off the Bengals, but Cincinnati is walking a tightrope at the moment. Pick: Cincinnati

must win today for the men in stripes, no turning back, who dey, see you at phebes

Rob Ryan: aka "Fat Custer"

I wish our team had an attitude like that. And I didn't check the film, but considering how shitty Nate Livings is as a guard and the precise knowledge of when the play happened it's probably true.

We need to revolt now.

It appears that we have our leading lady for the Spider-Man reboot and her name is Emma Stone. Stone has been offered the role of Mary Jane and since she has a reputation with Sony chances are she is taking it. I honestly like Stone and she has that sort or sarcasm and cockiness I would expect from Mary Jane.
