“I absolutely loved the Chicago Bears growing up”: 49ers’ TE opens up on being a fan of favorite childhood team despite NFL success with San Francisco

In the world of professional sports, athletes often become the embodiment of loyalty and dedication to the teams they represent. However, every so often, the public discovers a remarkable bond that transcends the boundaries of team affiliation. Such is the case with San Francisco 49ers’ star tight end, George Kittle, who recently revealed his unwavering love for his childhood team, the Chicago Bears. Despite achieving great success in the NFL with the 49ers, Kittle’s heart remains connected to the team that first ignited his passion for the game.

In the previous season, the San Francisco 49ers showcased an impressive performance, reaching the NFC Championship Game. A significant factor contributing to their success was the explosive play of their star tight end, George Kittle. However, Kittle faced challenges during that game due to the absence of their starting quarterback, Brock Purdy, who was sidelined due to an injury.


As the upcoming season approaches, the 49ers are once again anticipated to be strong contenders for the NFC title. On the other hand, one team not expected to be favored is the Chicago Bears, which happens to be Kittle’s favorite team since his childhood.

What did 49ers’ TE say about the Chicago Bears?



In a recent interview with ESPN1000, Kittle expressed his deep admiration for the Chicago Bears, revealing that he has been a fan of the team since he was young. He also mentioned that he remains connected to the team, keeping a close eye on their decisions and ensuring they are making the right moves.

“I absolutely loved the Chicago Bears growing up. I still keep in touch on my Bears making sure they are making the right moves.”

While the San Francisco 49ers have undoubtedly benefited from Kittle’s extraordinary talents, his unwavering allegiance to the Chicago Bears is a reminder that sometimes, the bonds we forge in our early years can endure, defying the constraints of professional competition and leaving an indelible mark on our hearts.
