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?”

Dude, don't give Mike any ideas on new goals for his legacy.

I'm surprised that you did not comment on Wyche's open-and-shut case against the turd that is Bratkowski's play calling. Facing the 29th ranked rushing defense, Bobbo calls 45 passing plays and limited Cedric to 24 yards on 14 carries by running to the outside (where Indy's speed helps them) instead of up the middle where the Bengals are strongest and Indy is weakest. What a freaking doofus!

That said, I believe that Mike Brown has too much pride to go 0-18. 1-17 will suit him quite nicely.

“I’d rather sell an extra preseason game in August than another regular season game in January. It’s bad for us to sell tickets in the cold. My fans would rather have the game when it’s warm.” Referenced from the previous post

If the above does not cement the theory that MFB cares not about winning, only about managing his inherited business throughout a season that they are forced to participate, I don't know what does.

Another preseason game when it's warm wow, I guess he has figured one thing out that when the orange drink of optimism without football knowledge or reason is flowing it's when you need to make your money. He knows that as the season goes on and the orange drink runs out, so does the money.

I also like the term my fans and best of all he called the loyal 40,000 for 20 years fair weather fans. They want to buy tickets when it's warm not cold and apparently do not care whether the teams wins or loses.

MFB what a piece of work. I guess we just do not understand how hard it is to run an inherited business which is only 1 of 32 in the world and your country's national pastime that provides billions in sales annually.

MFB gets up on Sunday morning hoping for warm air and sunshine = ticket sales, instead of winning. We rewarded that worthless son of a bitch a palace on the river and he shows no respect or gratitude.

Warm air and sunshine = go to the park and have a picnic and F-ck the Bengals!
Staying away from the palace on the river is the only thing sane people would do.

Oh, well, what's one more shitty, ruined, disappointing season when we've had so many?

I've heard the same thing many times from Cincy media as well (MB wants to win. Just not sure he knows how to or is willing to give up control). I'm not convinced. I (and many others) aren't getting the impression that MB is remotely concerned with winning. Let me explain...

Jerry Jones wants to win. He speaks to the media often, even during HARD TIMES. He openly has admitted embarrassment after games - and clearly stated that losing is NOT acceptable. He has alluded to being disappointed about not making it to the Super Bowl at his stadium. He's made a coaching change mid-season. I get the feeling from Jerry that losing is not acceptable and he's committed to putting a quality product on the field.

Does anyone get that feeling from Mike Brown? Hello? Anyone? All I hear are crickets...

Mike Brown reminds me of the Wizard of Oz - the man behind the curtain. He makes maybe 2 media appearances per year. He gives the vibe there is no accountability for continually under performing (Bob Bratkowski comes to mind).

There is not ONE SINGLE PERSON IN CINCY that can truly say they get the impression Mike Brown is committed to producing a competitive team. Otherwise, they're not being honest with themselves. Maybe they need a double dose of Bengals Group Therapy... The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.
