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.”
