GQ: Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer once tried to fight Peyton Manning

Fox Sports will broadcast Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday, and GQ profiled the network’s NFL Insider, Jay Glazer, for its February issue.

In the article written by Drew Magary was an anecdote Glazer told about a shouting match he had with Peyton Manning at the Pro Bowl in 2007 that nearly came to blows. Manning apparently made a wisecrack about Glazer’s good friend Michael Strahan’s divorce.

(Warning: Glazer’s tirade is laced with profanity.)

“I took it the wrong way,” Glazer said. “So I said, ‘F— YOU, PEYTON. F— you.’ I was just f—ing screaming at him, yelling at him: ‘I’ll beat your ass. Don’t f—ing treat me like a b—-, don’t talk about my friends and their f—ing problems. I don’t give a s— who you are, okay? We’re f—ing men. Just because you play football and I don’t does not make you any more of a man and does not mean you could beat my ass, because you cannot.’ It was pretty surreal. All of a sudden Peyton’s like, ‘Aw, what did I get myself into?’”

When Magary asked Glazer whether he felt he reacted to the situation appropriately, Glazer replied that he did not. Oddly enough, Glazer said he and Manning are on good terms now.

Glazer, who is heavily involved in MMA and sometimes trains NFL players in the sport, also said he nearly fought Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger at a golf tournament.

If Glazer likes to fight then maybe he should get back in the ring

i remember when Glazer said that Matt Leinhart was going to have a great year at QB because he was training him at MMA. That midget is so full of himself

 LOL.  At best you come up to Peyton Manning's, what, waist??  Which is probably where you want to be.  I can only imagine how many c0cks you've sucked to get into the NFL circles like you are.  You are the poster BOY for Little Mans Disease glazer.

Everyone is hating on Jay Glazer and I suppose I can understand what some of you are saying but despite what you think of Jay Glazer let me see you react to this scenario: 


Your buddies ex called police and said he threatened to beat her.  When the cops show up and your buddy is not arrested because of lack of evidence.  In the process of interviewing your buddy the cops find out your buddy was pissed because his ex had taken 3.3 million dollars out of their joint account.  When your buddy confronted her about it (obviously upset and pissed off) instead of giving an excuse she called the cops and filed a bogus complaint.  Then when your buddy trys to divorce the gold digger she spreads rumors that he is gay, has beaten her so badly in the past her kidney's failed, he secretly tapped her sister (his sister in-law) undressing in their house, and he cheated on her.  After all this your buddies ex still got a $15 million divorce settlement and $18K a month in child support.  


You're out at a bar one night having a good time and you over hear an acquaintance of you and your buddies trashing your buddy and making light of the "horror show" of a divorce that your friend just went through.  You flash the guy a couple of dirty looks but the arrogant pr#ck looks right in your eye (across the bar) and keeps on digging your friend.  After having a couple and listening to this b*llsh#t you can't take it anymore and tell the scumbag to STFU or you're going to stomp a mud hole in his posterior.


Now any man out there that has the cubes to diss Glazer for his actions probably wouldn't have the guts to talk sh*t right back at the guy that was making fun of a terrible situation that his buddy went through, Manning be damned.


*Full disclosure I am a Patriots fan and I do think Jay Glazer would stomp the D.S. off of Peyton Manning's face, but I stand by my scenario and if you also defend Ben Rape-less-burger you're probably f*cked anyway too (or a brain dead Sturlers fan)!

I don't think it would look good on, Manning's behalf, if he were seen beating up a midget.

Glazer looks dumb. He sounds dumb. Why is he on TV?

What a nutjob.  No, Peyton wouldn't fight him, and neither would Ben, because their hands are worth tens of millions of dollars and Glazer isn't worth anything.

Martin-Incognito is alleged bullying/tormenting while Glazer/Manning is a basic nobody trying to make a name for himself with one who was classy enough not to get involved. The stronger man walks away, the weak man needs to confront to puff himself up. Streets are full of these types- so are jails and graveyards.

glazer has a problem beyond lack of any discernible skill.. anger management should be a priority instead of being a self promoting gossip queen.

Sounds like Glazer bullied Manning and Manning backed down.

You all called Martin a punk for doing the same.

@FlatTop Napoleon Complex? or was it too hard for you to google? and no peyton is 6'4 so jay is not 3'2...also if you havent noticed peyton never was an athlete and Jay does train people to fight MMA...peyton is a hell of a player no doubt...but as someone who dates a lifelong Indiana native and colts fan... he is a raving piece of trash off the field

@RobertHinton AMEN...shoulda just punched him in his 5head...then we would all be talking about the "pro athlete" who got beat up by the "midget reporter"

@mashley278 @mashley278 you really think Manning can beat up anything other than his ex girlfriend? hahahahhahahhha look at pics of his fat lumpy a$s...thank god his dad taught him to read defenses (which no denying he does better than anyone) cuz if he was required to run block catch fight or do anything that requires more physicality than yelling or whipping your right arm....he would be totally screwed...but then again he can do those things so he isnt hahahahhha

@grizzlypete  Because most of the people watching him are even dumber.  Have you looked around?  America has become an entire nation of obese, dim-witted inbreeds.

@grizzlypete That's simple.  Everyone enjoys watching an idiot and Glazer is very good at being idiotic

@simon2k1 @FlatTop Glazer does appear to have insecurity issues when running in NFL circles. The reason why we know is because he admitted himself he was at fault here for misunderstanding what Manning said. He responded by trying to big talk a pissing contest with Manning.  He likes to use his MMA background to overcompensate for his Napolean complex when mingling among pro players. That much is also clear.

@AmySkene also would like to note you used a fragment to insult America...not to mention the judgement you displayed...funny thing America has produced more Rhodes Scholars than the nation who invented the scholarship...so you must be one of those recipients correct?

@simon2k1 @AmySkene  I don't know how to put this without embarrassing you, but English nationals aren't eligible for Rhodes Scholarships. And no nation "invented" them, they were started by the trust of a single man. On second thought I did want to embarrass you.
