” I was a 49ers fan back in the 50s with Frankie Albert, and then John Brady and Joe Montana. But I remember in the 70s the Rams beat us 18 times 20 times playing,” Brady Sr said on the show. “I never wanted to see a Rams uniform. I hated the horns on their helmets, I hated their blue and yellow uniforms. So I understand the sentiment that people have with having the Patriots win.” he explained.
