Where did Jay Glazer get the 'Spygate' tape? Ronde!

Nothing Fox information man Jay Glazer has done in his career has generated quite as much attention as his coup in acquiring a copy of the Patriots' "Spygate" tape from Week 1.

But Glazer said he was more proud of reporting before the Redskins-Bills game that Washington would start the game with only 10 defenders in honor of Sean Taylor.

Even coach Joe Gibbs didn't know about it. "I was pumped about that," he said.

What about that tape, though? Where did he get it? Glazer never has said - usually he jokingly says he got it from Ronde Barber - even to his bosses at Fox Sports, chairman David Hill and president Ed Goren.

Glazer said he enjoyed the attention from the story but not the fallout, which he said included a "witch hunt'' by the NFL to try to uncover the source.

"They started going after the wrong people, people were pointing fingers at everybody," he said. "They had no clue."

Glazer told Hill and Goren he would lie to them if they forced him to give up a name. So far they haven't, and he hasn't.
