NEW ORLEANS - Jim Harbaugh stepped to the podium, smirked a bit, and opened his first news conference as a Super Bowl coach. "We're super happy to be here," he said Sunday night as his NFC champion San Francisco 49ers arrived in the Big Easy for the big game. "I think this team has the best focus on unity and winning I've ever been a part of. " Considering that Harbaugh was an NFL quarterback for 14 seasons and a successful college coach before joining the 49ers, he knows something about winning.

NEW ORLEANS - Joe Flacco is an Ordinary Joe no more. In a game that will forever be known as the Blackout Bowl, the Baltimore Ravens survived a near collapse following a 34-minute delay after the Superdome lost power, then rode their steady quarterback to beat the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31, in Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday night. Flacco, the Audubon, N.J., native who has been criticized for his placid demeanor, was voted the Super Bowl's most valuable player. He completed 22 of 33 passes for 287 yards and three touchdowns.

TOM BRADY agreed to a 3-year contract extension with the New England Patriots on Monday, a person familiar with the contract told the Associated Press. The extension is worth about $27 million and will free up nearly $15 million in salary-cap room. The 35-year-old, two-time league MVP was signed through 2014, and has said he wants to play at least 5 more years. Brady will make far less in those three seasons than the going rate for star quarterbacks.   Noteworthy *  The San Francisco 49ers are in talks to trade backup quarterback Alex Smith, ESPN reported, citing league sources.No NFL trades are permitted until March 12. * Star defensive tackle Star Lotulelei, from Utah, expected to be drafted high in the first round in April, has a heart condition, his agent said, and will undergo more extensive testing.

NEW ORLEANS - Working separately, John and Jim Harbaugh each guided their team to the Super Bowl. They will be on opposite sidelines Sunday, John as head coach of the Baltimore Ravens and Jim with the San Francisco 49ers. Imagine how effective they could be if working together. At their joint news conference Friday, someone asked the brothers whether they would consider teaming up if either should be forced out of his current post. "No question about it," John said. "We've had that conversation in the past.

The Norman Braman-Harry Gamble tenure of owning and running the Eagles will be remembered for many things, but their failure to reach a Super Bowl despite some talent-laden teams could be the most infamous. Now they have a chance to get there - at least by proxy - with Gamble's son and Braman's surrogate son one win away from having the team he helped build in the Super Bowl. Tom Gamble is director of player personnel for the San Francisco 49ers. While constructing an NFL roster is often a group effort, Gamble has been credited with picking many of the 49ers - including former Eagles kicker David Akers - who will face the New York Giants Sunday in the NFC championship game.

SAN FRANCISCO - Colin Kaepernick passed for 243 yards and two touchdowns in his first career start and the San Francisco 49ers whipped the Chicago Bears, 32-7, on Monday night in a highly touted NFC showdown that didn't live up to the hype. Kaepernick threw touchdown passes to Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree, and Kendall Hunter ran for a 14-yard TD as San Francisco (7-2-1) jumped out to a big lead by scoring on each of its first four possessions - with Aldon Smith wreaking havoc on the other side of the ball with five sacks.

Mark Sanchez wants to stay right where he is. So does Darrelle Revis. The two players are among the New York Jets' biggest uncertainties heading into next season. Sanchez is coming off a miserable year and Revis is recovering from a serious knee injury while also having a sticky contract situation. "Until I'm told differently, I'm a Jet," Sanchez said Monday as the Jets cleaned out their lockers. "That's what I always thought would happen. I don't see anything different. I just want another crack at this thing.

THE ROAD to Damascus apparently intersects with Pattison Avenue, we learned Tuesday, when introspective football pilgrim Howie Roseman finally emerged from a yearlong media hiatus. We met a chastened, humbled Howie, a guy who is now just all about relationships and people, and about helping the Eagles any way he can, Roseman said. It was a riveting performance, rivaled only by what took place on the opposite coast Wednesday, when Chip Kelly finally took the stage, nearly a week after being named head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.

The NFL just became a more interesting place, and we have the San Francisco 49ers to thank for it. The league without Chip Kelly in 2016 would have been a bore. Now, we get to find out if his work with the Eagles was incomplete because he was stuck with statues at quarterback or if he was a socially dysfunctional know-it-all unable to adapt to the NFL game and its players. The continuation of the Kelly experiment would have been better performed in Tennessee - the home of Chip's beloved Marcus Mariota - but the 49ers are a solid second choice.

Chip Kelly interviewed with the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, according to multiple reports. It was Kelly's first known interview since the Eagles fired him last week. The 49ers fired Jim Tomsula on Sunday after a 5-11 season. They have 12 draft picks this year to go along with potentially $40 million in cap space. There is uncertainty at quarterback, where Colin Kaepernick was benched last season. If healthy and if the 49ers decide to keep him, Kaepernick could be the type of dynamic dual-threat quarterback that Kelly only briefly had in his offense in Philadelphia with Michael Vick.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - His back turned to the rest of the visitors' locker room here at Levi's Stadium, LeSean McCoy spat the word "embarrassing" into his stall before facing the reporters who'd sidled up to him. Those giddy days during the offseason, when McCoy was the NFL's reigning rushing king and bantered back and forth through the media with the Vikings' Adrian Peterson about which of them was the league's best running back, were long gone....

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.

Officially, each NFL team's regular-season schedule comprises 16 games over 17 weeks and starts in early September, before the leaves have begun to turn. Unofficially, the whole thing is just getting going now. This is what a league ridden with parity and debilitating injuries has wrought. Teams are so evenly matched that no game's final score is surprising anymore, and the sudden absence of a significant player can reverse a franchise's immediate fortunes. Aaron Rodgers, Reggie Wayne, Tamba Hali: Ask each man's coaches and teammates about the cost of losing him for any length of time.

Fans of the San Francisco 49ers waited 18 years for their team to return to the NFL championship game and they were reminded Sunday night that long waits and heartaches don't guarantee happy endings. Here in Philadelphia, that's not much of a surprise. The Eagles went 24 years between Super Bowl appearances and what did the fans get for their trouble? They got a quarterback who threw up on the field and a three-point loss. Thanks for stopping by. With the exception of the vomiting, the Niners came away with the same result, although their method was different than most.
