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.
