DeBartolo Jr. Calls The NFC Title Game A “Warm Up”

There’s one man who seems to think that the NFC Championship Game was simply a “warm-up” for the team to get ready for Super Bowl XLVII against the Ravens – Eddie DeBartolo Jr.

Eddie DeBartolo Jr. hasn’t owned the 49ers for nearly 13 years, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a fan of the franchise. The team is now one win away from returning to the Super Bowl for the first time since he was owner, and DeBartolo apparently doesn’t consider the Falcons much of an obstacle to getting back to the championship game.

Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News tweeted: “Just ran into Eddie DeBartolo Jr. on the sidelines. Asked him about 49ers’ chances today. “This is a warm-up game,” Eddie D said.”
