SANTA CLARA -- Jim Harbaugh's preparations for Super Bowl XLVII took an unexpected turn Friday morning when he called into a sports-talk radio show. Not just any show, however. Harbaugh took notes while listening to sage advice from Pro Football Hall of Fame coach John Madden, who hosts a daily segment on KCBS 740-AM. Madden coached the Raiders to their first Super Bowl championship, a 32-14 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl XI in January 1977. Harbaugh will try matching that feat Feb. 3 when his 49ers face the Baltimore Ravens in New Orleans.

Seahawks@Buccaneers 8:15 p.m. [chs. 11, 4] You can hear a different voice working with Al Michaels tonight - Cris Collinsworth. Before the season, NBC suggested John Madden (right) take the week off to avoid a third straight cross-country trip in his bus. Combined with next Sunday's schedule containing an open date for NBC, that gives Madden, 72, a couple of weeks off. However, it halts his streak of 476 consecutive games worked on the air.

Even though World War II ended in 1945, it has never ended at the movies. Based on a 2007 Israeli film, "The Debt" is a new English-language film about the decades-long hunt for a Nazi doctor who conducted horrible procedures at a concentration camp. The serious subject matter ensures that attention will be paid to "The Debt. " It generally merits that attention, but director John Madden's slickly packaged thriller often feels superficial rather than profound. Although important ethical issues are raised, much of the cinematic time is spent jumping around between the various places and times that factor into the story.

Is the new "Monday Night Football" annoucning team an improvement? As long as nonstop commentary and lame jokes continue to be the trademark of "MNF" - to say nothing of every other football telecast - what difference does it make? That's why God, in his wisdom, invented the mute button. Joe Roman Baltimore Yes ... but only if Joe Theismann has laryngitis. Bob Barry Timonium No. Nobody is better than Al Michaels in football play-by-play, although Mike Tirico will be good. While Joe Theismann may be more polished than John Madden, he is not a better color guy. Tony Kornheiser is excellent on radio and "Pardon The Interruption," but a three-man booth does not work on "Monday Night Football."

In Friday's column (which, of course, you all have read) I had some of what John Madden had to say in a conference call earlier last week, heading into today's Hall of Fame Game. Here are some more excerpts: * "I get excited every year for the start of football season, but this year it's kicked up about five notches." * (Comparing his Oakland Raiders with today's teams) "I look at those films ... and we were better." * (On how he's greeted) "Some people say, `Hey Madden!' When you get `Hey, Madden!

John Madden isn't in the broadcast booth anymore, but he still has a booming voice within the NFL. Madden, 73, is an adviser to Commissioner Roger Goodell on football matters and chairs a coaches' subcommittee to the competition committee. He watches every game from his viewing complex in Pleasanton, Calif., reviews video during the week and keeps close tabs on players and trends. This week, from his home in Carmel, he spoke to Tribune newspapers NFL reporter Sam Farmer about overtime, the draft, technology and a certain quarterback who's on the fence about returning to the Vikings.

Unloading more sports media notes while checking eBay to see whether someone is selling a large bus that has cruised from one NFL city to another: * Nobody does an impression of Cris Collinsworth. Nor do you hear anyone imitating Phil Simms or Troy Aikman. That doesn't mean they aren't good NFL analysts, but it does mean none of them is John Madden. With Thursday's announcement that Madden is retiring from broadcasting, sports television loses one of its few truly outsized personalities.

Shortly before the Super Bowl, The Wall Street Journal published a piece detailing some mistakes in fact committed by John Madden this season. The implication was clear: NBC's veteran commentator had lost a few steps. If that had been the case, however, Madden must have gotten them back before last night's telecast, because he was definitely on his game in what was an NBC presentation up to the standards of what turned out to be a wonderfully entertaining Super Bowl. The same can always be said of his play-by-play partner, Al Michaels.

Whatever else you say about ESPN's first Monday night telecast of the regular season, it was obvious how much better a rapport Tony Kornheiser has with Ron Jaworski than he did with Joe Theismann. Yes, they yukked it up, but it didn't get in the way of Jaworski's points about the game, which he made without going on and on like the fellow in that chair last year. Earlier in the weekend: Dan Marino greeted the newest member of The NFL Today cast, Bill Cowher, by putting on a "spit shield" to protect him should the former coach launch into the kind of intense monologue that typified his sideline style.

A new set of criteria for selecting head coaches has spawned a different breed of leader in the NFL. Today's coaching front man is younger and more personable. Gone from the wish list are the voice of experience, the wrinkles of seniority and the dictatorial profile. The hiring this week of Mike Tomlin, 34, and Lane Kiffin, 31, as head coaches in Pittsburgh and Oakland underscored the NFL's recent run on youthful coaching talent. Ten of the past 15 head coaching hires have been 45 or younger.
