WTF? Buffalo? That's a tough pill to swallow...
Ok, seriously though. If I were drafted to the Bills I would still be cheering for the 49ers every year. In fact if I made it to the Superbowl of course I would want to play against the team I have always cheered for. As a competitor I would want to win that one game more than any other in my life.
Joe Montana along with Ronnie Lott are the players that made me a 49erFan in the first place. So he grew up in Steeler country, and was a Steeler fan. Imagine if he were a Buffalo fan... 4 Superbowl wins could have been 4 Superbowl losses.
