The Green Bay Packers are attempting to sign Ron Jaworski, and a team official said yesterday that the former Eagles quarterback had responded to the team's initial offer with a proposal of his own. "We've heard back from him and he's interested in Green Bay," said Tom Braatz, the Packers' executive vice president of football operations. "They've made a counter offer on the contract and it's a matter of trying to put a deal together. " On his radio show on WIP-AM, Jaworski yesterday confirmed that he had made the counterproposal, and said that another team had expressed interest in him. "This morning there was an offer from a team that hasn't even been talked about," Jaworski said without revealing the team's identity.

A cheer went up along the length of the Chicago bar as the score of the Packers-Vikings game was announced. Then Slats Grobnik pointed an accusing finger at me and said, "Now, ain't you sorry for all those rotten things you said about the wunnerful city of Green Bay?" You must be thinking of someone else. I've always thought of Green Bay as one of the garden spots of America. "Don't try to deny it. You wrote that people who live in Green Bay think the most fashionable clothes they can wear is red long underwear.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - For Eli Manning and the New York Giants, Lambeau Field has become a familiar launching pad. After beating the Green Bay Packers at home for the second time in four years, they only hope this trip ends the same way - at the Super Bowl. Manning threw for three touchdowns and the Giants shocked the Packers, 37-20, in an NFC divisional playoff game on Sunday. Manning threw for 330 yards, sending the Giants to San Francisco for the NFC championship game next Sunday night.

Generally, you left scratching your head. Sometimes the calls seemed wrong. Others, the plays were not so bright. Unquestionably, the whistles and flags flew yesterday with an alarming frequency. The Eagles incurred 12 penalties for 115 yards, by far the most penalties and yards suffered since Andy Reid became head coach last season. It is the most penalties and yards since they took 15 for 140 in Arizona on Nov. 2, 1997. Like that frustrating day in Tempe, they were not happy about the calls in Green Bay. "It was ridiculous," said free safety Brian Dawkins, who was flagged for defensive holding when, he said, he was nowhere near the play.

The biggest smile in the Eagles' locker room following yesterday's 20-17 win over Green Bay belonged to owner Norman Braman. This was the game everyone had talked about since the NFL schedule was released in the spring, the game in which Reggie White would come back to haunt Eagles management - more specifically, Braman - for the decision not to re-sign him. When the dust and the verbiage finally settled yesterday at Lambeau Field, White...

Jordan Fouse scored 16 points, and Green Bay wrapped up a spot in the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1996 by beating Wright State, 78-69, on Tuesday night in the Horizon League title game in Detroit. Charles Cooper added 15 points for the Phoenix, who jumped out to a double-digit lead and never let the Raiders control the pace. Green Bay (23-12) and Wright State (22-13) were in the championship game after beating top-seeded Valparaiso and second-seeded Oakland the previous night.

Andy Reid did most of the raising of his family in Green Bay. This weekend will not serve as a family reminiscence. "I have a lot of friends there. Acquaintances," said the Eagles head coach, who spent 1992-98 as a Packers assistant. Big deal. "I will do the best I can possibly do to handle this as a business trip," Reid said. "If I want to go back for pleasure, I'll save that for the family vacation during the summer. Right now, I will limit the distractions and focus on the game.

Green Bay had a lead, lost it, tied it up again and . . . Well, it's been that kind of season for the Packers. Paul Edinger kicked a 27-yard field goal as time expired, giving Minnesota a 20-17 win last night over host Green Bay. The Eagles hope the Packers (2-8) will continue their season of futility when they visit Lincoln Financial Field next Sunday afternoon (4:15, Fox). After struggling mightily since quarterback Daunte Culpepper was lost for the season, the Vikings put together a solid showing behind backup QB Brad Johnson (18-for-30, 196 yards)

ASSUMING THE Green Bay team that shows up plays to the level of the Super Bowl favorite everyone is touting, this game isn't too hard to figure. The Eagles are young and talented, but for now, the young part is more what you notice. They have shown no sign so far of being ready to handle this big a challenge. Funny things happen in openers, and Andy Reid had an awful lot of success against the Brett Favre-era Pack; the Eagles have won six of the last seven meetings if you include the playoffs, the only loss lately that 2007 opener when the return game sabotaged a strong effort.

Logan Vander Velden sensed it was time. The Wisconsin-Green Bay senior knew his team needed a lift in the final minutes of the Mid-Continent Conference tournament finals. "I looked up and there were about three minutes left and I hadn't done anything. And I said, 'I've got to step it up.' I felt I had to take over a little, and some of my shots began to fall," Vander Velden said. His final shot with 12.2 seconds left did fall, and it was the one that counted most. He hit a drive to the basket, was fouled by Mario Bailey on a block and converted a three-point play that put the Phoenix on top. Gary Grzesk added a pair of free throws after Kenny Williams missed a three-pointer.

(Teams listed in predicted order of finish) NFC EAST Washington Redskins Last season: 9-7 (Won division; lost to Green Bay in wild-card) Coach: Jay Gruden (13-19 in two seasons) Norman invasion: The Redskins were 25th in pass defense and went out and got Josh Norman from Carolina, the best available cornerback. When you share a division with Dez Bryant, Odell Beckham, and Paul Turner (a little sarcasm), having a shutdown corner is crucial. Outlook: If Sam Bradford was miffed when the Eagles drafted his replacement, imagine how Kirk Cousins feels.

THE PATRIOTS added another capable tight end, giving them their best duo since the Aaron Hernandez days. But there's some depth to the position beyond Rob Gronkowski and new teammate Martellus Bennett. From Jordan Reed to Julius Thomas and maybe even Antonio Gates, there is value to be had in the middle rounds. Gary Barnidge, Browns: Had a strong first-half of the season, but settled down with just three TDs and no 100-yard games in the second half. Low-end TE1. Martellus Bennett, Patriots: Had 16 touchdowns from 2012-14, so he does have value as a handcuff for Rob Gronkowski.

IN HIS FINAL preseason appearance of the summer Saturday night, Sam Bradford completed an impressive 17 of 20 passes for 167 yards and two touchdowns in a little more than two quarters of work against the Indianapolis Colts. The Eagles quarterback finished the preseason with a 102.6 passer rating and an 80.0 percent completion rate (only eight incompletions in 40 attempts, and four of those were drops), which, along with $4.75, will get him a venti caramel macchiato at the Starbucks down the street from his South Jersey home.

WHY DO players buy in to what a coach is selling? Chip Kelly, Doug Pederson's predecessor as the Eagles' coach, sold innovation. He had a lot of new ideas that had been successful in college, including new approaches to practice and to medical monitoring. Players bought in, at least for a while, because Kelly experienced immediate success - heading down the homestretch of the 2014 season, Kelly's career record was 19-9 - and because the training methods he introduced made some veterans feel healthier, fresher.

The Bucks County manufacturer of Skee-Ball, that staple of boardwalk arcades at the Jersey Shore, has been sold to a Wisconsin rival in the family-amusements industry. Joseph W. Sladek, who bought Skee-Ball Inc., now in Chalfont, in 1985, called the sale a "bittersweet goodbye" in a news release from the buyer, family-owned Bay Tek Games Inc., which is based in Pulaski, near Green Bay. The price was not disclosed. The deal was signed Tuesday. Skee-Ball manufactures its games in Chalfont, but after a roughly three-month transition will move to Wisconsin, Gaetan Philippon, Bay Tek's chief executive, said Wednesday after meetings with Skee-Ball employees.

HARRISBURG - Just before midnight on Saturday, Jan. 14, 1967, Joe Hirschmann arrived in Los Angeles on his way to Vietnam, rented a motel room for eight dollars a night, and wondered how he would spend his Sunday. Rising at 7 a.m. after a fitful sleep, he put on his Marines winter service uniform, having packed away the rest of his clothes before boarding a plane in Harrisburg on Saturday morning. He went to Mass in Inglewood, stuffed his gear into a locker at a Greyhound bus terminal, and called a cab. Someone had mentioned a football game, reminding him that there was indeed a big event taking place in the city that day: the NFL-AFL championship game between the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

ON THE DAY Andy Reid signed him to quarterback the Eagles, amid widespread civic disillusionment, Doug Pederson declared, "My best days are ahead of me. " Nearly 17 years later, we're about to find out whether that's still true. As soon as the Kansas City Chiefs are done with the playoffs, Pederson, their offensive coordinator, will be announced as the 23rd head coach in Eagles franchise history. He will arrive as he did in '99, as something considerably less than the toast of the town, compared endlessly with higher-profile candidates many fans would have preferred.

Not that it is likely to help his case, but Doug Pederson, the former Eagles quarterback and assistant who interviewed Sunday for the vacant head coaching job, already has his jersey in the Hall of Fame for a Philadelphia accomplishment. As with most things regarding Pederson, however, there are a few asterisks that go along with that story, most of which make you say, "oh," instead of, "OH!" The same applies to his current candidacy for the job that came open when owner Jeffrey Lurie had his fill of Chip Kelly.
