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?”

Just need to write to lay off a little steam...I would think as an adult this wouldn't get me so revved up but it does...How much longer does a fan have to wait?? 22 years tomorrow since their last playoff win...incredible..and sickening!

True, they put together 10 wins as opposed to 9 last year and this year's game in Houston was a lot more competitive than last years. To be down 9-7 at the half when the offense couldn't get out of its way was a testament to a stout defense. And I was a little impressed that they sucked it up in the second half when it looked like the game was getting out of hand at 16-7.

At least they had THEIR chance with the Dalton overthrown long ball...I really believed that the game was over at that point regardless of their 4th down pass( another doozy throwing a route about 5 yards short of the marker)

Anyway, I'm better now. Looking forward to seeing some more action on the blog this offseason. Once the emotion subsides Cincy still has a chance to build on this year's success. I know I saw a lot of empty seats this season in the stands, so maintaining the pressure is key. He may never relinquish control, but at least WDR can serve as a light in the darkness. Viva

Rey Maualuga was PWNED. They beat him like a conga drum all day. The Bengals played bend-don't-break but that's actually what Kubiak likes, he wants to run the ball and dink pass down the field. It worked like a charm except they didn't execute in the red zone. Otherwise this game would have been 35-13. Bengals had no sacks, Texans offensive line bulldozed over them.

But the Bengals offense? That looked an asteroid had smashed into a train wreck. They had 3 passing yards in the first half? And no attempts at AJ Green? What kind of moron comes up with that as his game plan?

The truth is the defense over achieved and the Bengals never really had a run game all season. I'm actually kinda glad they lost, I want Mike Brown to die knowing that he never won anything and his system sucked. Until the Bengals start spending some money on quality players, indoor facilities, scouts, etc. it's going to be the same old story.

The players are there. The scouting department has been improved. Indoor facilities would be nice, but what needs to happen, what has to happen, is Marvin Lewis MUST be fired! He is the worst coach in the NFL. He makes terrible decisions and bumbles important calls. Also, Jay Gruden needs to take his no-talent-brother's-name-hacking ass outta town. That guy wouldn't know an offense if it smacked him in his worthless face. 11 run plays in that game yesterday is a fucking pathetic joke! We averaged almost 8 ypc in the first half when we only ran it 6 times?!?!?!? Ridiculous! I really hope that the Arizona Cardinals bail us out on this one and take him off our hands and we promote Hue Jackson to OC.

Yeah, I don't know what they were thinking not targeting A.J., unless is was kind of a diversion strategy so they could target him later on. Especially with his natural abilities, you gotta just get him the ball and let him do his thing.

I think Dalton just needs some more time to mature. I wanna rip his head off for missing throws and his hesitancy (many commentators notice his gun shy demeanor and indecision in making tough throws), but we all know everyone expects to win right now, and in reality it takes time. I'm still very impressed that he has directed these guys to 2 straight playoff appearances. I would like to see another deep threat receiver on this roster next year, or if not, I think a receiving threat out of the backfield would give this offense an added dimension. (I'm not sure if Scott or Leonard can provide this).

But I think with our D, they will give us a chance to be in almost all of our games next year. Zim is pretty cool.

I was down on the Bengals all season but I actually thought this game was theirs to lose.
Which they did.
Which leads me to ask, how much is being spent on conditioning coaches? It seems like the Bengals were manhandled all year in the 4th quarter which leads me to believe everyone else is in just a little better shape.
I still think Marven Lewis is an 8-8 coach whose teams sometimes out perform. It will be interesting to see how the Ravens and Steelers respond to their setbacks this year.
Better than the Bengals do I'm willing to bet.

All the Koolaid drinkers saying give Dalton more time, compare Dalton's lack of poise and deer-in-the-headlights performances in big games with Kaepernick's first ever playoff start and 8th ever start that produced one NFL record and a franchise record for the 49ers, in a smashing win that puts them in the NFC championship game. These guys were drafted in the same draft, and Dalton was supposed to be more NFL ready.

"Give him more time" -- the mantra for losers.

Ha Ha Ha We still have CLOWNS posting over here thinking the Bungals will be winners? MFB is a LOSER and he will take that word to his grave. NE just manhandled those CHUMPS that beat us. Dalton is nothing more than another kINTna. Go look at their stats and compare. All this team and organization is.... The same ole CIRCUS with different CLOWNS! lol You want Hue Jackson to become the OC? lol Look at how their O ran in Oakland. CLUELESS BUNGALS FANS they always will be! ENJOY THE CIRCUS for the 23rd year coming up under MFB's realm! BTW, they did not win 10 games, Baltimore did not even play their starters hardly at all. They are winning now and would have given us a butt whoppin again. WAKE UP!

Nice to be here and see your post!
