New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady grew up a San Francisco 49ers fan in the 1980s and 1990s. What exactly does this mean? The six-time Super Bowl champion has never liked the Dallas Cowboys.

In talking about his matchup against America’s Team this coming Sunday, Tom Terrific had a brilliant quote.

Born in Northern California back in 1977, the story of Brady attending the Cowboys-49ers 1981 NFC Championship Game at Candlestick Park is by now well known.

He’ll have a chance to knock off Dallas at home on Sunday and help New England maintain its status as the No. 1 seed in the AFC.

Brady might not be conflicted in this one, but his 49ers boast the same 9-1 record heading into Week 12. One has to wonder the emotions that would go through the future Hall of Famer if he had to meet up with San Francisco in the Super Bowl.
