During the pre-game show, Jimmy Johnson argued that teams often win because of an absense of mistakes, more than because of making big plays. He put a premium on intelligent players and the need to not make dumb mistakes. He pointed to Atlanta as a smart team, a team that has few penalties and turnovers.
Much of this team was put together by Nolan and McLoughan. Whenever I heard their interviews on KNBR, I was usually underwhelmed by their comments, struck as if they were not exceptionally bright. If that was true, then they probably did not place much premium on intelligence when evaluating the talent they drafted.

"Which is group is dumber?" I think you answered your own question.
