I have given this some thought. I have warmed to the idea of the Pats in the Super Bowl ONLY if they go against the 49ers.
I HATE Tom Brady, But I LOVE the narrative. In order to tie his childhood idol, Montana, in SB victories, he will have to go through the team that Montana led and that Brady grew up rooting for. It humanizes him for me a bit, which has been the problem for me with Brady.
