When asked to compare Brady to Haley’s former teammate in Joe Montana, Haley had the following to say.

“Joe didn't have to cheat,” Haley told the Talk of Fame Network. “I've lost all respect (for Brady). When your integrity is challenged in the game of football, to me, all his Super Bowls are tainted. You have to say this just didn't happen overnight. Who wants that shadow over them? I could be wrong. But I realize there were 12 balls deflated and 12 ain't. Then you've got (Patriots coach Bill) Belichick coming on three different times trying to explain it. ... You know something is wrong.”

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the New England Patriots have been given 6/1 odds to repeat as Super Bowl champions next season. Seattle is currently favored to win Super Bowl 50, as it has 11/2 odds, while the Packers have been given 7/1 odds.
