It will be something less than a family feud when the Eagles face the Seahawks at Veterans Stadium on Sunday, but no one should be too surprised if both defenses bear the unmistakable look of the Buddy system. Reflecting a prevalent defensive trend toward action rather than reaction - and to make amends for failing to find a "speed" pass-rusher during their training-camp season - the Seahawks have come up with a defensive scheme they call their "42" package. Much like the "46 defense" that Buddy Ryan first taught the Eagles three seasons ago, the 42 is designed to attack and create chaos for an offense by pressuring the passer.

Only the most daring prognosticators - or fools - would have picked Buddy Ryan's Eagles at the beginning of the season to win the National Football Conference Eastern Division and make it into the playoffs for the Super Bowl. Yet the Eagles are there, the division champions, after soundly defeating the Dallas Cowboys 23-7 on Sunday. Of course, they got a little help from the Jets who knocked off the division-leading Giants in New Jersey's Meadowlands. In winning their conference for the first time in eight years, the Eagles have yet to prove that they are a team of destiny.

Michael, 30, a former dental student, was living alone in Cincinnati when the AIDS virus began its attack. Within weeks, Michael's health deteriorated as the virus attacked his central nervous system, leaving him unable to care for himself properly. Finally, a neighbor alerted authorities about Michael's living conditions. By the time authorities found him, he had to be hospitalized. Michael's plight dramatizes the need for a buddy system for people living with AIDS. To meet that need, the Delaware County AIDS Network has 20 trained buddies who serve as friends and advocates for people with AIDS.

Buddy Ryan's advice to son Rex when he took over as head coach of the New York Jets a year ago was simple: "Don't screw it up. " No problem, Dad. Borrowing a page from his irascible father's playbook, Ryan and the upstart Jets are on the brink of the Super Bowl. Buddy Ryan, the ex-Eagles coach who began his pro football coaching career with the Jets in the 1960s and was the linebackers coach for the New York defense that shut down the Baltimore Colts in the 1969 Super Bowl, is impressed.

Jeff Fisher was a coach before he even knew it. It was 1985, and Fisher was technically still a defensive back and punt returner for the Chicago Bears. He injured an ankle and spent the Bears' championship season on injured reserve. Standing on the sideline, he began to work with Bears defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan. "At the time," Fisher said, "the defensive staff in Chicago consisted of three guys. Buddy was on the sideline. Jim LaRue and Dale Haupt were in the press box. Having one guy handle that defense on the sideline was quite a task.

Philadelphia's King Britt is so far where he started from, he can hardly see through the trees. And not just because he moved from the West Philly of his childhood to Fishtown. The house-hop producer/DJ behind 1998's groovy When the Funk Hits the Fan and 2005's electro-swamp blues Sister Gertrude Morgan has become quite the experimental music provocateur and curator, roles highlighted on his new album, Other Sides , and his new once-monthly live event, the Buddy System, at Johnny Brenda's on Monday.

They really don't know what their responsibilities will be. And they don't know if they'll get along with their partner, or how long they could be together. But a dozen volunteers, armed with blind faith and good intentions, spent three days last week training for a new assignment: being buddies to a person with AIDS. "This is an opportunity to have another new friend that I wouldn't have met otherwise," said Kathy Whalen of Coatesville. She heard about the group through a newspaper article.

Philadelphia's top election official suggested Monday that city voters should set up a buddy system to help others get the photo identification they'll need at the polls in November. Every Philadelphian should "adopt" two eligible voters without photo IDs, help them obtain the necessary identification, then make sure they go to the polls, City Commissioners chairwoman Stephanie Singer told a small gathering in the City Hall courtyard. "If we want our democracy, we need to fight for it," said Singer, a Democrat and one of three commissioners overseeing the Board of Elections.

Two weeks. That's all it has been. Two weeks of Scott Tinsley and Otis Grant and Guido Merkens and Dave Jacobs and enough mismatches to shake a picket line at. Two weeks of strike replacement football (well, three if you count the practice days before the first game), and if you are Buddy Ryan, that's a period of time you wish had never, ever been. And that's a bleary future staring you right in the face if the strike lags on and Randall Cunningham, Reggie White and their ilk remain out. "Well, I told my wife the other day, I said, 'You know, I've been in this business 31 years, and this has been the toughest two weeks I've ever spent in it," Ryan said yesterday after reviewing the films of the Eagles' latest washout, Sunday's 41-22 defeat in Dallas.

The Township Council has moved a step closer to allowing residents at the Riddle Village life-care facility to use their swimming pool without a lifeguard. The council introduced an amendment Monday night that would exclude life- care communities from the lifeguard requirement if certain regulations are followed. The proposed rules require that residents use a three-person buddy system and that pool activity be monitored with a camera with audio capability by a person trained in first aid and CPR. In October, residents packed the township building asking for a waiver of the lifeguard requirement for public bathing places, saying their facility would be used only by residents, guests 18 and older, and staff.

Five days a week, without fail, the three men meet at 3 p.m. at the Aquatic & Fitness Center in Jenkintown and exercise for about two hours. They have been working out together for at least 15 years.

Bernie Kauderer, 80, is an optometrist who also lives in Huntingdon Valley. They have become gym buddies and fitness friends. "If I didn't have friends to do it with, I probably wouldn't do it with the same consistency," says Blumenthal.

IRONIC would be a polite term for the juxtaposition of the new, improved "reasonable" image Michael Smerconish has been selling lately and and the old Mumia-hating version that still regularly erupts, as in his July 22 column "A suprising tune on Danny Faulkner. " Employing some of the trademark incestuous logic of the kill-Mumia crowd, he boasts that rock mediocrity Gary Cherone, after reading Smerconish's deceptive book on Abu-Jamal, felt compelled to share with Maureen Faulkner a song he'd written in which he vents his confusion about the case.

AS A RESIDENT of Olde Kensington, I've been extremely shaken by the murder of Sabina Rose O'Donnell. I wish her family and friends strength and hope our community is able to remain united through this tragedy. Living a block from the site of the murder, my immediate reaction was to install new locks, grate up my windows, upgrade my alarm system, get a larger dog, carry a small weapon and otherwise watch my back. In other words, create a fortress for myself. I have very rarely felt unsafe in my community, but an event like this shakes me to the core.

Buddy Ryan's whistle pierced the Kentucky morning. "Yo," Ryan called across the back pasture, larger than a football field. "Come on. Come on. " Six horses looked across at the 75-year-old man standing at the fence, wearing a windbreaker and a New York Jets hat. Another whistle - this one loud enough to stop a train - got the thoroughbreds wandering over. "They think they're going to get fed," Ryan said. Of an 18-year-old brown mare walking his way, he said, "That's FiredForWinning right there.

The recent heat wave was blamed for seven more deaths in the city yesterday, bringing to 15 the number of people to succumb during the four days of 90-plus temperatures. All but one - a 53-year-old man who died of heatstroke outdoors - were found in overheated houses, some sealed tight. The toll far surpassed the three heat-related deaths recorded last year. There were seven heat deaths in 2003, two in 2004, 23 in 2005, and 27 in 2006, officials said. The season's first heat wave began Saturday with a high of 94 degrees, and continued with high temperatures and oppressive humidity before breaking Tuesday night.

BACK WHEN George Bush dispatched his lawyers to fight affirmative- ction programs at the University of Michigan, Harriet Miers was just another good soldier. Michael "Nice job, Brownie" Brown was a failed horse-show promoter waiting for his pal Joe Allbaugh to hand him the reigns at the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Allbaugh, a former Bush campaign manager, was still running FEMA and waiting to parley his presidential ties into a million-dollar lobbying business with clients who are fattening up on no-bid post-Katrina contracts.
