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?”

Wyatt, all with one typo that I found (I have to pick on the guy who picks on everyone else right?)

"He actually performed slightly better against NFC North teams than not, although a 51-45 shootout loss to Cleveland in week 2 in which he had 11 receptions for 209 yards and 2 touchdowns certainly helped that average."


That being said, I have a hard time putting much faith in the numbers against playoff teams. Unless I am really misreading your info, i would want to see looks or pass attempts to Chad to judge whether it was him disappearing in the game or the rest of the team (loss to the Jets in the Meadowlands where Carson had 0 yds. in first half). I know you have a ton of free time, so go ahead and get that info for me.

Good read though. I still have a soft spot for Chad. Somehow he made the Bengals relevant even when they weren't.

"Somehow he made the Bengals relevant even when they weren't."

That's a good way of describing Chad with the Bengals...and he comes back, talking that talk,
acting like he plays on the best team in the world...it's kinda cool if you can get past being annoyed by it : )

I'll go ahead and say it though...for better or worse, I think he is maturing


Cam Newton's job, in his own words to the press, is to be 'an icon'...I think I know what he was trying to say, what with endorsements and all...but still, he better watch out for my mouse pointer

you can find what you want to in here,make your life full of color ,it's a perfect website.

We're going to get Mallet, aren't we? :(

Okay, so in the light of recent news, I feel pretty safe stating for the record that we will trade Carson. What we get is going to set the tempo for the draft. I know there are different feelings about this, but I'll make the bold prediction that we get some money and a 2nd or 3rd round pick for Palmer.

You know MFB someone somewhere deep in the dregs of Paul Brown Stadium is counting the money saved off Palmers contract once they off-load him. Yes, the CBA still looms, but you've got to think that keeping JJ and Benson looks a little better now... granted that may just be wishful thinking, but screw it; we're talking about QBs and WRs, yes?

The big question now is will the Bengals put all their eggs in one basket, and I say they won't. That's why they won't draft Cam Newton. If he tanks, everything else means zip, zilch, nada. Also, the amount of float-head QBs that all have starter potential is bigger this year than any in recent memory. In other words, drafting Cam Newton at no. 4 means they have to be considering him as a starter, but knowing the very real chance he could be a bust, they have to find a back up as well, likely in free agency. My line of thought is that if you have to find a QB in free agency regardless, and likely whomever this QB is will only be signed to reasonable one or two year contact anyway - it just seems ultra logical to sign that same veteran QB (AS A STARTER) and then draft your rookie in round 2... which naturally allows you to get AJ Green.

I agree with Wyatt, Green, Johnson, Shipley, and Gresham along with Jerome and Simpson make a sick WR corps, giving any QB, rookie or veteran, all the tools he would need. ...I know we said that last year too... But, yes: I think Ryan Mallet in Round 2 is very very likely as much as I would like to see that FS Moore from UCLA get picked up...

Hey! Maybe that's how the pick for we get for Carson will get used!

Some of you might be thinking, that's just too stupidly logical. My counter argument is that if my happy-ass can think it in Afghanistan using only internet research, then I'm right on par with the Brown family scouting department.

Lastly, @ Wyatt - three days ago, I would have agreed that Kolb was a pipe dream manufactured in my own twisted dream world, which, frankly, is still included in most of this post; but, you've got to concede the Lewis and Gruden (and maybe Mikey) must be at least peeking at names like Kolb, Leinhart, McNabb, Gradowski, Grossman, Quinn, Smith, Collins, Pennington, Dixon... need I go on?

correction: I meant Caldwell and Simpson.

They are way better off trading down then staying at #4.

If they trade down, they could end up with at least three picks in the first two rounds. With those picks they could go after three of their five biggest holes: OG, DL, SLB, WR and Safety. IF they can fill the OG and DT in the first two rounds that would be ideal so we have dominate lines on both sides of the ball again: that is what provides the foundation to win championships.

If they trade Palmer away, which it is looking more like a possibility every day, they could have 4 picks in the first two rounds to fill those holes (only if the CBA is resolved by then of course).

I am not including QB as a hole b/c they can fill that easily in FA (McNabb) or trade for Kolb after the draft. I think Kolb would be a good fit here.

no way they go wide receiver in the first round! oh wait i just forgot i dont care anymore. so yeah, take a wr in the first round, or dont.

Trading up, trading down. It doesn't matter.

Mike Brown is going to fuck it up anyway.

Trade Carson keep Carson. It doesn't matter.

Mike Brown is going to fuck it up anyway.

Sign Benson trade Benson. Doesn't matter.

Mike Brown is going to fuck it up anyway.

Draft Newton, draft Gabbert. Doesn't matter.

Mike Brown is going to fuck it up anyway.

What's the over/under on attendance next year. I'm saying 40k average tops.

I'm with Ickey's headband.
You can't lose on a long snapper in the first round, can you?
I'd do either that or maybe trade the first round pick for a new linebacker coach.

@ JM

You hit the bottom line, God awful, absolute truth for this franchise. Bob Marley might have had a hit @ PBS singing a version called, "No Mikey, No Cry!"

@ JM: One hopes the town smartens up but given the attendance being so high lately one has to wonder!
The stadium should be so f--king empty you can hear crickets chirp.
But every Sunday the koolaid konsumers are there...

I think we should take Fairley at #4, should he get to us. If not, I agree with Green. But should we get Green and Carson follows through with his rebellion threats, I'll remind you of Mr Sidney Rice of the Vikings. His first few years, he didn't do much and was thought to be a bust...his QB was Tavarus Jackson. Then, a proven QB comes in (forget personal feelings about Favre being great, over-rated, etc...he was a proven veteran) and Rice, for at least one year, showed what he can do with a good QB. If we are in a similar situation, just remember this before adding Green to the owner's crap list.
However, if we draft Newton, put it on the owner's crap list before the commissioner even finishes his last name at the podium.

And the 'endtro' refrain, instead of "everything's gon' be alright',

will be (to quote JM), "Mike Brown's going to fuck it up anyway"

( you might say 'wrong band',
but "I've goht blistahs on me fingahs!" )



"When you get to the bottom you go back to the draft....(lyrics, lyrics, blah blah blah)...

...you may be an owner but you ain't no GM

He should take The Family and move to Spahn Ranch

@Hofbraunow: love your words. " He should take The Family and move to Spahn Ranch"

Nice green on his short.

Outdoor dining is such an obvious plus for downtown.

EO EO EO EO.....BECAUSE OF YOU, I WILL TRUST EVEYRONE AROUND ME....
