- "I was texting with Glazer last night. I know Jay, and I was of the opinion that I thought on something this serious that Jay should have called Favre and gotten his reaction. And at least gotten the denial. I think journalistically, that's what you have to do. Jay's feeling was that if he did it, that Favre would have shared the story with somebody. So he would have got beat on his own story. And I kind of understand that. But ... the story is in essence going to ruin Favre's reputation. It will be as hurtful as anything, in my opinion, that has ever happened to him since he has walked into the NFL. And that includes going to rehab."

Peter King: Jay Glazer should have gotten Brett Favre's comment
Peter King, Brett Favre's favorite in the media, didn't disagree with the accuracy of Jay Glazer's report that Brett Favre may have shared information about the Packers with the Detroit Lions. But King did say Glazer should have called Favre for a comment before running with the story. King said Glazer told him that if he called Favre, Glazer was worried he would feed the story to someone else in hopes for a better spin for Favre. Wonder who Favre would have peddled the story to? Hmmmm. Here's Peter King's comments on the Dan Patrick radio show Monday:
