Just when Buddy Ryan was getting ready to say hello to the Eagles and the NFC East again, he soon might have to say goodbye. Realignment finally took center stage at the NFL owners meetings at the Hyatt Grand Cypress Resort yesterday. The owners spent several hours discussing four realignment proposals, three of which include the exit of Ryan and the Arizona Cardinals from the NFC East. Under the least dramatic plan, only two teams would relocate. The Indianapolis Colts would move to the NFC Central and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would move to the AFC East.

Georgia's own Jimmy Carter was a lame-duck president when Atlanta won its only NFC West title in franchise history. No. 2 grows closer and closer with each passing week. Playing before their first home sellout crowd in three years, the surprising Falcons took sole possession of first place with a 31-19 victory yesterday over visiting San Francisco, beating the team that has ruled the division almost every year since 1980, the only year Atlanta took the NFC West. "It's been a long time coming," said linebacker Jessie Tuggle, who has been with the Falcons for 12 years.

All that talk about Carolina becoming the budding dynasty of the NFC West might have to be put on hold. The old one appears to be back. Treating Carolina as a one-year wonder, host San Francisco reclaimed the division title from the team that took it from the 49ers last year, defeating the Panthers yesterday, 27-19. Getting an electrifying kickoff return for a touchdown from Terry Kirby and surviving a blocked field goal late in the game, the 49ers (10-1) won for the 10th straight time, wrapping up their 13th division title in 17 years and sixth in the 1990s.

SAN FRANCISCO - Alex Smith threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Delanie Walker late in the third quarter, and San Francisco held off the Seattle Seahawks, 13-6, on Thursday night as the 49ers won their long-awaited division opener. Frank Gore ran for 131 yards, and the 49ers (5-2) took over sole possession of first place in the NFC West by making just enough plays to win this game, featuring two teams allowing fewer than 16 points per game. Walker's score was San Francisco's first touchdown in seven quarters after an embarrassing, 26-3 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday in a lopsided rematch of last season's NFC championship game.

ONE OF THE Eagles' two road wins in 2012 was in Tampa Bay, and they'll have a chance to go right back down there next year and win again, as the Eagles' 2013 opponents were finalized with the completion of the season Sunday. As the fourth-place finisher in the NFC East, the Eagles will travel to the fourth-place team in the NFC South and host the fourth-place team in the NFC West. They, along with the other NFC East teams, will take on all the teams from the NFC Central and the AFC West.

  Line: Chargers by 91/2. The skinny: The San Diego Chargers will continue to try to salvage their season when they host Denver. The Chargers are 4-5, even with a two-game winning streak. The Broncos are 3-6. "If you just look at divisions and records, it probably doesn't stack up as one of the toughest," said Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, who's on a pace to shatter Dan Marino's season record of 5,084 yards passing. "But you also could look at each game and how they've been won or lost.

NFL Week 16's finale tonight (St. Louis vs. Tampa Bay) has both NFC Central and NFC West division implications, and it also impacts on how the playoff-bound Eagles could be seeded after the last week of the regular season. Suffice it to say, the Birds - win or lose vs. Cincinnati Sunday at Veterans Stadium - have a good shot to finish tied with one or more NFC teams, recordwise. Here is how the Eagles fare in the tiebreaking race regarding seeding: Vs. Vikings (Advantage: Eagles)

The good news is that the Eagles kept their playoff hopes alive yesterday with their victory over the New York Giants. The bad news is that each and every rival chasing those three coveted NFC wild-card playoff berths also won. The conclusion: The Eagles could make their lives so much easier by defeating Dallas and Washington in the next two weeks at Veterans Stadium. The Eagles are a lock if they finish 11-5. A win over the Cowboys would give Dallas six losses, and the San Francisco 49ers can finish no better than 10-6 with wins the last two weeks.

"For one reason or another, we've played poorly in the first half of the season and then played much better the second half. We've got to get off to a better start. " Packers coach Forrest Gregg, at the start of the season. The Pack is now 0-6. The game has been rated a tossup, but the Miami Dolphins will be bucking long odds in the Orange Bowl this afternoon when they try to reverse their fortunes against the Raiders. That's where the Dolphins' Don Shula, of the 184-77-2 coaching record during 16 seasons with Miami, will try to top the sideline strategies of Tom Flores, the Raiders' head coach.

THEY ARE Forrest Gump's box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna git with the Eagles defense. They made you feel like a million bucks on Thanksgiving and made you crazier than Lieutenant Dan amid a hurricane that Sunday afternoon in Green Bay. They nearly stole a game for you in San Francisco earlier this season, nearly gave one away earlier this season against Washington. They're a group that looks real good at times on the field and hardly ever on paper, a defense that leads the NFC in sacks with 42, a unit with a run defense that dares you to pass, then surrenders a whopping 24 touchdowns this season through the air. And here's the most unnerving part: They will have to play as well or almost as well as the one across the field Sunday if the Eagles have any shot of beating the Seattle Seahawks.

AS A GENERAL rule, I am not a fan of coachspeak. It is normally just a bunch of clichés strung together, designed to not answer anything asked and remind both parties that this was a waste of time. In fairness to Eagles coach Chip Kelly, he rarely lets his news conferences descend into coachspeak. Don't get me wrong, because Kelly has a master's degree in message control and says only what he wants to put out there. Still, he doesn't treat the obvious as if you're asking about state secrets by giving one-syllable answers, and he doesn't keep regurgitating a catch phrase.

TODAY, JUST as they did last year, the Eagles return from their bye looking toward a date with the Arizona Cardinals. Some things are the same, many things are different for two NFC teams that finished 10-6 last year, the Eagles winning a weak NFC East, the Cards shut out of the playoffs in the powerful NFC West. Had Arizona beaten the Birds last Dec. 1, instead of getting nipped, 24-21, after coming back from a 24-7 second-half deficit, the Cards would have gone to the 2013 playoffs.

NEW YORK - What were the lessons of Super Bowl XLVIII for the Eagles? It's kind of hard to ignore the fact that the Seattle Seahawks are young and deep and aren't going anywhere as an NFC power. Yeah, it's been 9 years since an NFL champion repeated, but Seattle looms as a huge obstacle in Chip Kelly's path, next season and beyond. The 43-8 Super Bowl dismemberment of the Denver Broncos and the league's No. 1 all-time offense seemed to underscore that the NFC is where the power is these days, especially the NFC West, where San Francisco nearly defeated the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game, and Arizona missed the playoffs at 10-6.

RENTON, Wash. - Chip Kelly's introduction to life as a head coach came in the Pac-10 in 2009, when Southern California's Pete Carroll stood among the game's hottest coaches and Jim Harbaugh was building Stanford into a power. Kelly's team won the Pac-10 that year. That was the last time the three coached in the same conference until this season. Either Carroll's or Harbaugh's team will win the NFC this year. Carroll left for the Seattle Seahawks in 2010 and Harbaugh took over the San Francisco 49ers a year later.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - NaVorro Bowman did not need to rehash the San Francisco 49ers' history with the Seattle Seahawks. The bitter NFC West rivals will meet again in the NFC championship game after San Francisco's 23-10 win over the Carolina Panthers in the divisional round Sunday at Bank of America Stadium. "Long story short: They know us, we know them," said Bowman, a Pro Bowl linebacker and former Penn State standout. "We all know the history.

It holds a strange place in Eagles history, this silver spaceship in the desert. It is called University of Phoenix Stadium. It is the site of the last game played by Brian Dawkins, among others, in an Eagles uniform. It is where Jim Johnson coached his final game. It is the place the Eagles' last deep playoff run ended as the four previous runs had - in disappointment and disbelief. For all that, the place and that game don't stand out as sharply as you might expect for fans who take every Eagles win and loss personally.
