Coach Holmgren, clearly upset about the Packer's play, decides to find out from Dennis Green what his secret is. So, Holmgren travels down to a Vikings practice and asks Green, "Coach, how is it that your team is so good? What's your secret?"
Green responds by calling Cunningham over. "Randall, who's your father's brother's nephew?"
He answers, "Why coach, that's easy. It's me."
Green turns to Holmgren and says, "That's the secret, Mike. A smart quarterback. You've got to have a smart quarterback."
Thinking he's finally got all the tools he needs, Holmgren returns to Wisconsin and the Packer's work-out. He promptly calls over Brett Favre. "Favre! Who's your father's brother's nephew?"
Brett looks perplexed, thinks a minute and says, "Coach, can I get back to you after practice on that one?"
Holmgren (disgusted) says, "OK."
During practice, Favre calls over Antonio F reeman. "Freeman, coach just asked me the weirdest question. Who's your father's brother's nephew?" Freeman:
"Duh! That's easy. It's me!"
After practice, Favre catches up with Holmgren: "Coach, I think I've got it.
My father's brother's nephew is Antonio Freeman."
Holmgren (angry): "No, No, NO! You idiot!! It's Randall Cunningham!!!"
