Jay Glazer spoke with us about Philip Rivers and Carson Wentz courtesy of GNC and his Unbreakable Gym’s new supplement partnership.
Horseshoe Heroes was lucky enough to get the chance to catch up with the NFL’s most physically imposing insider on Thursday, as Jay Glazer took the time to chat with us regarding rumblings around the league, but more importantly, his charity work with MVP (Merging Vets & Players).
Glazer is a master motivator, and when given the chance to wax poetic about the work he’s done by bringing athletes and military members together to share the common goal of camaraderie, it’s easy to get swept up in the emotion.
"“We’re taking veterans and pro athletes and merging them together,” Glazer told us. “To give them a new team for when the uniform comes off. The challenge is when you lose your tribe. Five years, we haven’t had a single suicide. Because we remind you of what your greatness is. It’s not the uniform, but it’s what’s behind your rib cage, behind the uniform.”“And the message is great for the whole world,” he continued. “We’re going to get through this pandemic. We are. ‘Cause we got no choice. Because we’re unbreakable.”"
While we had Glazer, we couldn’t help but ask our favorite questions about the future of the Indianapolis Colts (and, well, the Philadelphia Eagles): Namely, what’s going on with Carson Wentz? What’s behind the regression? And would he look better in blue and white than Philip Rivers, who’s currently holding down the fort?
“You know what? I’ve talked to a bunch of people in Philly about Carson, inside that locker room,” Glazer said. “Asked ’em, ‘What’s wrong with him?’. They’re like, ‘We can’t figure it out. We don’t know. We can’t put our finger on it.'”
“With Cam Newton (in New England), they knew mental mistakes and mental errors, turnovers, that’s been his mistake. Carson, they just don’t understand why he’s been stuck in this funk.”
As for the potential fit in Indy this offseason? Let’s make a deal? Well, Glazer’s answer was surprisingly emphatic.
“Right now, they’re loving Philip Rivers. Why would they move on from him? No, no, no, no. They’re not gonna get rid of somebody who’s working for them to bring in a guy who’s a project.”
There you have it! The future in Indy is up for grabs in the draft, but the present is far more likely to be dominated by Rivers than by a second roll of the dice.
And if there’s anyone who would have the inside knowledge an a wide breadth of topics, it’s Glazer, who goes from making calls to NFL GMs to working out alongside The Rock in the snap of a finger.
Oh, and about that hulking behemoth: Any endorsement of his run for the presidency in 2024, perhaps?
“Absolutely! Damn right I would! You know how many parking tickets I’d get out of? And I’d probably become his Secretary of Stuff. I’d be in his cabinet.”
In the meantime, for the next for years, you can catch Glazer on air or getting a quick workout in at his West LA Unbreakable facility.
“It’s the only gym in America with a therapist on staff for the clients — mostly for the owner, but also for the clients.”
