The Great Brett Favre-Jay Cutler Conspiracy

This has been germinating in my brain for awhile, but frankly I didn’t want to say it cause, well, I’m flat-out sick of everything having anything to do with Brett Favre.  Now, however, the time has come to face up to the thing, no matter how it may pain us:

It looks an awful lot to me like the whole Jay Cutler situation is part of some master scheme by Brett Favre and Bus Cook to get Brett out of New York and onto the Vikings, without Brett having to stab the Jets in the back.

There, I said it.  You can call me crazy all you want.  You can even email the guys who own this site at [email protected] and tell them to fire me for being a lunatic.  I don’t care.  I can’t help it.  The conspiracy is so plain that I can’t imagine anyone not seeing it.  The dots…just connect the dots, man:

  • Jay Cutler gets enraged because the Broncos fire their offensive staff along with Mike Shanahan.  The situation becomes worse when new head coach Josh McDaniels attempts to trade for Matt Cassel.
  • Bus Cook starts whispering in Jay’s ear that he can get himself traded if he whines enough.
  • Meanwhile…Brett Favre retires, saying he could probably still play but doesn’t want to force the Jets to release him because he respects the front office.
  • Bus Cook, as we all know, is also Brett Favre’s agent, and was the mastermind behind Brett’s campaign to force his way out of Green Bay.
  • Cook’s campaign against the Broncos puts them in a position where they almost have no choice but to trade Cutler.
  • And now…a report from Gary Myers of the New York Daily News says the Jets have told the Broncos they want Cutler.

So what happens if the Jets acquire Cutler?  Brett goes to them and says, “Well, I had my agent help you get Cutler.  So my debt is paid.  I’d like to play one more season with the Vikings and stick it to Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy, whom I hate worse than acid reflux and non-Wranglers jeans put together.  Please give me my release.”

You think the Jets won’t accommodate him?  You think he won’t be on the phone to Brad Childress immediately after they do?

Like I said, call me crazy.  Just remember this in a few months when Brett Favre is introduced as a member of your Minnesota Vikings.

    Danzinski, actually I have been thinking about it for awhile also, but didn’t want to say anything until I thought of doing it as a joke under your last post.  Apparently, your credibility means nothing to you!

  • Ryan

    Umm, Mike your the one always talking about Brett Favre being a Viking next year and Danzinski puts togther an interesting story how it could happen and you bash him for it?  lol, I’m not quite sure you even know what your own opinion is.

  • Mike

    Ryan, I want Brett Favre on the Vikings and was happy by the coincidence that the Jets were pursing Cutler, because I knew the Jets would release Favre to the Vikings if they got Cutler, but to think Bus Cook has mastminded the whole thing is crazy!

  • danzinski

    I have no credibility.  And don’t underestimate Bus Cook.

  • Ryan

    lol, anything is possible i guess

  • Dave

    Stop it…..Please just stop.

    Not sure if any of you care to hear from a Packer’s fan but if you want my take (& you probably don’t but….), You really don’t want Brett Favre. Yes, he is/was a great quarterback. He is a hall of famer (or will be, no doubt). But to take him as your quarterback is just too much drama that you really don’t need. I am torn just saying this in that I loved the Favre years here in GB & I hated the Packers organization for the whole Favre deal last year. But I also hated the way Favre/Cook went about the trade. Favre is stuck in a situation where he is desparately trying to hold on to something he loves dearly, football. The fact is, we all have to give up on things as the years pass. He is having trouble doing this & you will pay the price with his indecisiveness from this season to the next if you take him in. You;d be better off looking long term & banking on another quarterback.

    Favre and the Vikings are a great fit, including the need to win now and shove it to the Packers.

    JT,
    I can’t speak for everyone but myself, I don’t mind hearing from Packer fans as long is it something along the lines as what you have wrote…  Have read other blogs and there’s alot of trash talking other stuff, In the last couple weeks, This blog has become one of my favorites…

  • JT

    Chuck,

    I am the same as you. I don’t mind having a conversation about our respective teams. I openly admit when the Packer’s suck (a lot recently). I give crap to the Packer’s opponent fans when they visit (in a good humor-fashion, of course). I am like most fans, I think. It is when people get out of hand in the bashing of each other that the good-natured ribbingbecomes irritating & makes you never want to deal with “other fans” ever again (i’m sure you’ve experienced it at some point).

    ANYWAY, would Favre be able to help the Vikings, I’m sure he couldn’t hurt but I can tell you all from experience, it is a lot of headaches dealing with all the Favre-isms (that is the short way to talk about most of what you’ve heard in the media & a lot more you haven’t or don’t understand until you’ve experinced it firsthand).

    JT,
    Lol,  I have fun jabbing my neighbor and a couple buddies at work,  Some fans on theblogs,  I call it Fan Rage almost like Road Rage but safer , People are behind their computers or labtops  instead  of a steering wheel… Anyways, after the drought Qb’s we have had for a while, I can handle the Favre-isms for a while.

  • JT

    Chuck,
    I see your point on all counts. First, isn’t it funny how bold people become when there are no repercussions?! Second, you are correct, there is a drought of quality QB’s. Of course that is always the case for most teams in the NFL at any given time. We can’t all have the best QB in the game. To that, I couldn’t blame you guys for wanting Favre, even if it is for one season.

  • Mike

    Danzinski, you can put another dot into the consiracy with news reports now claiming Favre has been texting Mangini - maybe to arrange for Brady Quinn to go the Broncos.

  • Mike

    Actually, your post about the Vikings getting involved in a 3 way trade for Cutler and then nixing the deal could also be part of the master plan to upset Cutler so they could get Favre in the end.

  • JT

    Looks like all this is coming to fruition. The Broncos are going to release Cutler which opens the door to the Jets being so grateful to Favre/Cook for their work to get Cutler that they will release Favre if he wants to play for the Vikings. Not that I am opposed to Favre playing for the Vikings but that could be a death-move for him as it pertains to his image as an example of sportsmanship. His “good-guy” image will be blown!

  • Mike

    JT, you are not buying Danzinski’s conspiracy theory, are you?  I was kidding that Brett Favre was involved, just playing into Danzinski”s paranoia.  Besides now Danzinski is blaming sleep deprivation for his dellusions.  Brett Favre is our quarterback and a gentleman!

  • JT

    Not buying in, just saying that, thus far, the sleep-deprived conspiracy theory is still on track.

    To be honest, it would feel like a betrayal if Brett were to play for the Vikings. Largely because it would REALLY seem like it was a vengeance thing. I want to remain a Favre fan but an action such as this would not help my position. He is/was, arguably, the best quarterback to play the game but it is hard to be behind someone if they do something against another hero(s) that you hold dear (The Packers). It’s akin to Superman killing Ironman (or insert your own super heros).

  • JT

    Ok, ok. Cutler went to Chicago.

  • Mike

    Cutler likely demanded the trade to the Bears.  Cutler didn’t want to play for the Browns because Mangini didn’t mesh with Brett Favre, who also is represented by Bus Cook.
