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?”

Told you he was ready to pop. Thank You T.O.

He won't stop now. Only more truth to come.

I don't think this team is that talented, although they clearly have more talent than the 1990s, but that's like being better at Mexican food than Taco Bell.

But Marvin's had some hellacious drafts:
2003 Only Carson remains but Steinbach was a good solid pick.
2004 Everyone in that draft stunk except for the one good year you got each out of Chris Perry and Robert Geathers and Stacy Andrews -- maybe throw in Geathers' other years of mediocrity. But overall a craptastic draft.
2005 Nobody is left except Fanene. That speaks volumes.
2006 A good draft by Marvin's standards, but Frostee Rucker as a 3rd rounder? Bust.
2007 Got one good player Leon Hall, missed out on trading up for Mr All-World Revis Island, and throw in a safety who gets his butt beat regularly
2008 Actually a pretty miserable draft if you consider Keith Rivers is really nothing special, Pat Sims is a body, Collins is a body, and Jerome Simpson one of the biggest busts in franchise history.
2009 Already looking pretty crappy with Mr McBrokenFatFoot, Mualaga is out of position all the time, and Chase Coffman barely made the squad.

I would say reports of Marvin assembling loads of talent are greatly exaggerated in these parts.

you guys see this....In particular listen to how demoralized Chad Johnson is. He sounds like one of us.

Saw the article linked by Neutered Bengal, makes me wonder...has anyone tried sending either TO or Ocho a WDR shirt? No, their show doesn't get many viewers, but could you imagine the attention it would get if they were seen wearing our gear?

Brilliant, this should be done ASAP, especially in the wake of TO's accurate rant about the club and it's ails.

Whodey Revolution, can you explain to me why every other owner in sports who has a struggling franchise will send out some sort of memorandum (Jerry Jones, Dan Gilbert, Jerry Richardson-panthers owner who took responsibility for 2010 bad record, etc.) or comment to the media or something to let their team's fandom know that things are going to change and get better, YET MIKE BROWN SITS IN HIS CAVE AND SAYS NOTHING TO REASSURE OR EASE THE BENGALS FANDOM! Probably planning on how he can wait to sign/negotiate the No. 1 or No. 2 draft picks contract until the first game of the 2011 season.

comrades!

i have not decided yet to go to the game, but i will if there are others out there like me. can project mayhem #10 be that we pass out several odd thousand paper bags (browns fans might wear them too) and distribute them to spectators as they go through the gate?

i am in if you are.
