ESPN finally mentioned the Brett Favre information peddling story. But Pro Football Talk goes on the offensive, ripping ESPN for its poor coverage of the Brett Favre Saga, where the former Packers QB shared information with the Lions the week they were playing the Packers. Here's a short take of PFT's report:
    Written with surgical precision aimed undoubtedly at avoiding the key admissions Favre made during his Wednesday press conference, the item crafted by “ news services” strongly suggests that Favre denied everything that Glazer reported.

    Here’s the only quote that the article contains: “I didn’t give [Matt Millen] any game-planning. I haven’t been in that offense in over a year. I don’t know what else to tell you. It was pretty simple.”

    But Favre said so much more than that. And any journalist or editor committed to understanding a story completely wouldn’t ignore the other statements from Favre that provide the rest of the picture.
Here's a report on ESPN after Favre's press conference. Mike Golic seems like he is defending Favre.
