Philadelphia Eagles secondary coach John Harbaugh became the sixth candidate to interview for the Ravens' head coaching job, but he was the first who was neither a coordinator nor an assistant head coach. Harbaugh, though, came away from the nearly five-hour visit with team officials expressing confidence that he can lead the Ravens. "I don't think there's any one way to prepare to be a head coach," Harbaugh said. "[Eagles coach] Andy Reid was never a coordinator before he became a head coach, and he's one of the best in the league."

From all appearances, Brian Billick looks as if he will return as the Ravens head coach next season. Billick talks once or twice a week with owner Steve Bisciotti about the future of the Ravens and, despite being mired in a troubling 4-9 season, the two were seen laughing over a leisurely dinner at the team complex Monday. These are not signs that the Ravens are trying to distance themselves from Billick, one of four coaches who are currently with the teams they guided to the Super Bowl title.

NEW ORLEANS -- Mel Knoke bought four Green Bay Packers season tickets in 1927 for $1.65 a ticket.Seventy years later, the retired Appleton, Wis., lumber dealer still has those tickets on the 35-yard-line at Lambeau Field. They cost $35 apiece.Knoke, 89, and his wife, Leone, 93, still attend most of the Packers' home games. They were at the Ice Bowl in 1967 and at the NFC championship game two weeks ago in 3-degree weather.They said they have missed only 13 games in 70 years, two this season because Leone is recovering from a broken hip and uses a walker and a wheelchair.

His close friend is sidelined with a heart infection. His football team is close to missing the playoffs. And closer to home, Joe Vitt had to undergo a heart procedure of his own last month. And yet, Vitt, the interim coach of the St. Louis Rams, said this year has been fun. "I love football," he said. "Anytime I get to come to work and I'm around Marshall Faulk and Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce and Orlando Pace ... that's fun. Things haven't gone exactly the way we wanted them to this year, but we're going to come out and work hard every day, and we're going to look to get better."

Extra points Sack attack How good is the Colts' pass rush? The Browns' Trent Dilfer hadn't been sacked in two games and 75 passes before the Colts nailed him four times, including three by Dwight Freeney (above). Fancy footwork In his 12th season, many thought Jaguars WR Jimmy Smith, 36, had lost too much to still be a playmaker. But Smith showed he still has it when he finished off a game-winning 36-yard touchdown pass with terrific footwork at the 5 and a dive for the goal line against the Jets.

Rich Kotite is gone, Tom Flores probably is going, Dick Vermeil and Dennis Erickson may be coming and Sam Wyche could get a reprieve.That's the situation among NFL coaches today after Kotite was fired yesterday by Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie.Kotite's departure became a foregone conclusion as the team faded, losing its last seven games after a 7-2 start.But it might have taken a Super Bowl victory to save Kotite's job once Lurie bought the team from Norman Braman for a record $185 million last spring.

Denver Broncos Last season: 8-8, third place. Coach: Mike Shanahan (80-52), eighth year with Broncos, 10th in NFL. Story line: Can Brian Griese reclaim his place as one of the league's better young quarterbacks? Power game: Defense made a big push last season, and with the defection of LB Bill Romanowski to Oakland, the Broncos will juggle the lineup. John Mobley moves into Romanowski's strong side spot and Ian Gold moves in on the weak side. Even though the Broncos' free-agent signing of former Raven Keith Washington a year ago was a bust, the Broncos added another ex-Raven, DT Lional Dalton, this year.

Warren Sapp may have a sore hamstring, but he's having no problems with his mouth. Although Sapp's hamstring has limited his practice time this week in preparation for Sunday's NFC championship game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and St. Louis Rams, it would take a lot more than a sore hamstring to keep Sapp out of this game. The Bucs' defensive tackle loves the center stage, and this is the second-best center stage in football. Not that Sapp has much time this week to practice anyway.
