Robert Kraft, the owner of the Patriots, spoke today on “CBS This Morning”, and “Squawk Box”. He had some interesting comments, ranging from this weekend’s Super Bowl, to Tom Brady’s incredible work ethic.

Kraft said that Brady was already back in Foxboro, working with Josh McDaniels in an effort to improve for next season. He was also asked about what the rivalry between Peyton and Brady had done for the league, and this was his response (via ESPNBoston):

“It’s wonderful. We’re going to play them again next year, and it might be the last time the two of them — the two greatest quarterbacks in the modern era are on the field. They have great respect for one another. They’ve played 15 times, and my guy Tommy has won 10 of them. Not that we’re competitive.” 

Obviously Kraft is biased towards number 12, but based on his comments, he has really enjoyed watching two of the best to ever do it battle it out over the years.

He also touched on the Super Bowl, and while he didn’t say who he would be pulling for, he did have some kind words for Wes Welker, and former New England head coach Pete Carroll.
