FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Oh, brother! John Harbaugh and his Baltimore Ravens set up a family reunion at the Super Bowl, shutting down the New England Patriots, 28-13, Sunday in the AFC Championship Game. The Ravens reached their first Super Bowl in 12 years, thanks to three touchdown passes from Joe Flacco and a defense led by Ray Lewis that made Tom Brady look downright ordinary. Next up for Harbaugh and the Ravens is baby brother Jim and the San Francisco 49ers, who beat Atlanta, 28-24, earlier in the day for the NFC title.

Steve Bisciotti and Ozzie Newsome made a bold and fortunate move in January 2008. Jason Garrett had just rejected their offer to replace Brian Billick as the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens, so the team's owner and general manager turned their attention to John Harbaugh, the longtime Eagles special-teams coach. Harbaugh, 45 at the time, had spent the previous season as a secondary coach with the Eagles in an effort to enhance his resumé for a head coaching job, but no NFL team other than the Ravens considered him a serious candidate to run its football team.

When you grow up in a football family like the Harbaughs, you know in your very bones what it means when two teams line up for a punt or kickoff. Time to hit the fridge. "My dad's been a coach for all those years," John Harbaugh said. "He knows as well as anyone how important special teams are. But when he watches a game, he's just like everyone else. A punt means it's time to go get a drink or a snack. " John Harbaugh is the Eagles' special-teams coach. His brother Jim is an NFL quarterback currently playing in San Diego.

For those who believe the NFL is secretly as scripted as pro 'rassling, Sunday's games could provide the most suspicious story line imaginable. If things break right, the Super Bowl could feature the Harbaugh brothers coaching against each other in the city where one (Jim) played quarterback for four years, and in the state where their brother-in-law (Tom Crean) coaches the Indiana basketball team. It would be an upset for either brother to reach the Super Bowl in Indianapolis.

On this, the Eagles' players did not differ. John Harbaugh's tongue was legendary. In an instant, he could turn from that pleasant-looking, mild-mannered Midwestern guy into an unforgiving, tyrannical coach who neither spared feelings nor minced words. Any imperfection, big or little, from a missed assignment to questionable effort, would unleash the beast. Harbaugh, a former Eagles assistant, is in his first season as the Baltimore Ravens' head coach. "But we all mend," he said.

NEW ORLEANS - As he walked down one of the long hallways at the New Orleans Convention Center on Monday following a night of celebration and a morning news conference, John Harbaugh still was having trouble getting used to the fact that he is a Super Bowl-winning head coach. "I mean, I can't even believe we're having this conversation walking down the hallway after winning the Super Bowl," he said. "To me, I can't believe we're having this conversation, in all honesty. " They're probably having trouble believing it at Syracuse and Boston College, as well, two of the many places that thumbed their noses at the then-Eagles special-teams coach when he was looking for a head-coaching opportunity.

Some Eagles still remember Washington Redskins kick returner Brian Mitchell shaking his fists, beating his chest, and taunting the team that couldn't stop him. Those 1995 and 1996 seasons, Mitchell and the Redskins' special teams crushed the Eagles play after play. It was humiliation that John Harbaugh, the Eagles' first-year special-teams coach, missed and has spent the week planning to dodge as the Eagles near tomorrow's game against the Redskins at Veterans Stadium. Harbaugh, the one hero on the Birds' coaching staff in a so-far winless season, has focused this week on getting his players to avoid careless penalties, adapt to injuries to returners Allen Rossum (concussion)

If John Harbaugh wants Pat Shurmur to be the offensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens, he has Andy Reid's permission. "Pat's been with me a long time, and if he has a chance to move on in that capacity, I'd welcome it for him," the Eagles' coach said yesterday after watching the North team practice at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in preparation for Saturday's Senior Bowl game. Harbaugh, who was hired as the Ravens' head coach Friday, did not make the trip to Mobile. According to a league source, he remained in Baltimore because he is trying to put together his coaching staff and is talking to Ravens assistants who worked for the fired Brian Billick.

The men who coached the two bright spots in an otherwise dismal Eagles season will remain with the team. Special-teams coach John Harbaugh and running-backs coach Ted Williams will be on new head coach Andy Reid's staff, the Eagles announced yesterday. Reid will also retain Mike Wolf, the strength and conditioning coach who has managed to get the most out of the tiny weight room at Veterans Stadium. There was no announcement on a new defensive coordinator, perhaps the most important hire Reid will make.

It is not all that unusual for a rookie quarterback to start on opening day. Two of them, in fact, will do so in Week 1 this season, including the Eagles' Carson Wentz when he goes against the Cleveland Browns at Lincoln Financial Field. It is also pretty typical for some first-year coaches to roam NFL sidelines every year. Four of them, including the Eagles' Doug Pederson, will do so Sunday. Rare indeed is a team willing to open an NFL season with a rookie coach and a rookie quarterback, the surprising combination sprung upon the Eagles on Saturday when general manager Howie Roseman traded Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings.

N Les Bowen: Cast a wide net Of course not. O, OF COURSE not. That would seriously limit the pool of candidates, at a time when no one seems to think the Eagles' head-coaching opening is the most attractive situation on the market. What former NFL head coaches would be in the running for the Eagles' job, beyond Pat Shurmur, who already has been interviewed, and pie-in-the-sky targets John Harbaugh and Sean Payton? Looking to hire Tom Coughlin, are we? Harbaugh and the Ravens have said Harbaugh isn't leaving Baltimore.

EAGLES INTERIM coach Pat Shurmur interviewed to keep the job for good Monday, as media reports linked the team with just about every coaching candidate imaginable. "I love Pat . . . He definitely would be good for the team," wideout Jordan Matthews said. "I think he's a great football mind. He's seen a lot of football. He's seen the West Coast (offense), he's seen Chip (Kelly)'s offense. I think a lot of people don't realize how much Chip's offense has really revolutionized the game.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Sean Payton will meet Monday with New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis to discuss his future with the team. Twelve hundred miles to the northeast in Philadelphia, Eagles owner Jeff Lurie will be paying very close attention to how that discussion goes. According to a league source, Payton and Ravens head coach John Harbaugh are at the tippy-top of Lurie's wish list of candidates to replace Chip Kelly, who was fired last week. Lurie would seem to have almost no shot at getting Harbaugh, who spent 10 years as an assistant with the Eagles before getting hired by Baltimore in 2008.

They came together in the NFL, John Harbaugh as a rookie head coach after serving as an Eagles assistant for 10 seasons and Joe Flacco, then a first-year quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens in 2008. The two enjoyed remarkable success together. and when the Ravens visit Cleveland on Monday, it will be the first time Harbaugh will coach with a different starter at quarterback. Flacco, the star from Audubon High in Camden County and the University of Delaware, suffered a season-ending knee injury during Sunday's 16-13 win over St. Louis.

Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh was not happy with those on the Eagles who were critical of Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs for his hit on Sam Bradford in Saturday's preseason game. Eagles tackle Jason Peters called Suggs "dirty" and the hit a "cheap shot" after the game. "When you start popping off about somebody's character, you've crossed the line," Harbaugh told reporters. "That's not really something that we respect. But most of those guys understood the play and understood that [No.]

JOINT PRACTICES are "organized chaos," Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said after the first of the three days of welcoming the Baltimore Ravens to NovaCare, in advance of Saturday's preseason game. "Both teams are teetering on being under control, but out of control at the same time. It's real thin ice, but I think cooler heads prevail. We're all professionals. We're out here trying to compete. I think we all have that understanding and mutual respect for each other, and we're out here just trying to get work done.

Ryan, a Penn Charter alum, asked a bout Flacco's family. Flacco, who went to Audubon High School, asked Ryan how many people he knew coming down I-95 for the game.

Based on the last several days, the NFL's inactives on Sunday will include Self Control, Moral Clarity, and Common Sense. As weeks go, the NFL just had a doozy. In substance and appearance, it might have been the worst in the league's history. TMZ obtained and released the security video of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice in an Atlantic City casino elevator, knocking out his wife, Janay, with a left hook. With that, the outrage that already had been simmering over NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's meek two-game suspension of Rice finally reached a bubbling boil.
