People forget this was Atlanta's Superbowl, it was incredibly downplayed leading up to the game due to the closing of Candlestick, which outweighed that 'storyline'.
There were a lot of former NFC West battles in this game. Boldin vs Trufant (Zona vs Seattle), S-Jax vs 49ers d-line, Mike Nolan. Those chickens**ts had a lot to fight for, nobody should look at this game as some case of 'good team sucking against crap team'.
