After 17 years in the league, Tom Brady’s finally going to play his beloved 49ers in his own backyard.
Brady reminisced on Wednesday on a conference call with San Francisco media about growing up a Niners fan and also looked forward to this weekend’s game against the Niners in Santa Clara.
“I’ve never had a chance to play in front of my family like this,” said Brady. “I’ve never had a chance to play in front of my friends. Growing up in the Bay Area and loving football, it was a great time for me to grow up and see the success of the 49ers and the great quarterbacks, Steve [Young] and Joe [Montana] and what they were able to do. I was lucky to grow up in the Bay Area at that time and I always remember it being all the Super Bowl rallies and my mom taking me out of school and banging pots and pans on the El Camino after they would win Super Bowls. Those memories never go away.”
