Fooch's Note: Here is the full interview TK had with Eddie D.
As many folks here express great concern over the 2011 San Francisco 49ers, one man is particularly excited about what this team has to offer. Former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo chatted briefly with Tim Kawakami following the 49ers loss to Arizona yesterday. Eddie D had a few comments that ranged from expected to fairly interesting. Head after the jump to check it out.
I'm not posting these to say that Eddie D's word is gospel. The team has plenty of issues to sort out if it wants to make a solid run in the postseason, but it is still nice to see some confidence from the man who helped get the 49ers run all started 30+ years ago. It is fitting discussion given that the 49ers are celebrating the 30th anniversary of that team this season.
It would be fitting to bring home Lombardi #6 on the 30th anniversary of the first one. There is a lot of work to be done for that to be more than just a fleeting possibility, but it does not mean we can't at least consider the possibility.
