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...

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.

A Philadelphia sports institution skipped town yesterday. Reggie White, the ordained minister who is the most prolific pass-rusher in National Football League history and the biggest prize in the free-agent market, agreed to a $17 million, four-year contract to play in pro football's smallest city - Green Bay, Wis. For the once-proud Packers, there is the hope that White will lead them back to glory. For the Eagles, the loss of the NFL's premier defensive end opens a gaping hole in the front four and creates a huge leadership vacuum.

WHILE THE Eagles' front office was busy last week not drafting an offensive lineman, Allen Barbre was home in rural Missouri tending to chores. Barbre was fixing up a cabin he'd like to sell. Taking care of his 10 beef cattle. "It's country [there]. Laid-back . . . I like to be a little secluded," Barbre said yesterday, after OTA work at NovaCare. While Barbre worked, he was not paying any attention, he said, to the fact that the Eagles, in the biggest upset of their 2015 draft, did not add anyone who might threaten Barbre's position as Todd Herremans' replacement at right guard.

THE EAGLES announced a signing yesterday, but not the one fans of Jeremy Maclin were hoping would occur. Inside linebacker Brad Jones, released by the Packers last week, signed a 2-year contract with the Birds after visiting Tennessee over the weekend. Jones, who turns 29 next month, figures to provide depth and insurance as DeMeco Ryans rehabs from Achilles' surgery. "Whatever they ask me to do, I'm sure I'll be up to the task," Jones said on a conference call with reporters, which began just as the 4 p.m. deadline passed to place the franchise tag on Maclin.

Since Jeffrey Lurie took over as the Eagles owner in 1994, the team has been to the playoffs 12 times in 21 years.

You watch and try to learn. How did they get there? What makes them so different? What makes them better? Jeffrey Lurie has spent more than two decades studying the NFL's elite teams in this manner, and the Eagles owner would like to think his team belongs in the conversation. In truth, Lurie's Eagles lurk on the fringe of being elite: almost always good, but never quite good enough. In his 21 seasons as the team owner: The Eagles have had 13 winning seasons; only New England (18)

Depending on which side of the Great Johnny Football Divide you come down on, Johnny Manziel's debut as Cleveland's quarterback was either disappointing or delightful. There's little doubt how the Cincinnati Bengals felt during their 30-0 drubbing of Manziel's Browns last Sunday. Several Bengals taunted the QB, some with mocking imitations of his money-rubbing gesture. But no matter how bad his performance (10 for 18 for 80 yards, no touchdowns, two interceptions, three sacks, and a passer rating of 27.3)

AND NOW, for any Eagles faithful, to hope and to wish. The playoff berth that seemed a fait accompli 2 weeks ago now is tenuous. After consecutive home losses in December by a relatively healthy team, a playoff berth is anything but assured. What the Eagles accomplished last night, besides wasting a monumental comeback in front of a home crowd, is that they forfeited control of their own fate. Now, they need help. But, for argument's sake, we must assume that the Lions lose at Green Bay and/or Chicago.

WITH NICK Foles almost mended and the Eagles deficit at 21 early in the second quarter of last night's 38-27 loss to Dallas, someone in the press box quipped that No. 3 jersey sales will not be brisk this Christmas. Truth is, the racks in the local sporting goods stores do not reflect the ascension of backups to starter positions, as those seeking Foles jerseys learned last year. But you can buy a Cary Williams jersey if you like, or a Bradley Fletcher jersey, or if you're really a thrill-seeker, how about walking around the malls this week with a No. 11 on your back?

Whatever he decides, whenever he decides, Chip Kelly will shrug when he makes the announcement. He will either say, "Nick Foles is our starter. Mark Sanchez is our backup. The starter is ready to go, so he's back in there. " Or he will say, "We feel like Mark has played well enough to keep the job right now. Having Nick ready if something goes wrong is a great situation to be in. " And then he will shrug, as if saying anything other than that would be silly. We'll find out soon enough, maybe as soon as Monday, although even if Foles is cleared to return to practice this week, Kelly would be content to let that drama play out for a few more days.

THE EAGLES are still in pretty good shape to win the NFC East, after yesterday's 24-14 but-not-really-that-close loss to Seattle. Feel free to wonder, though, what the point would be of getting to the postseason, given the way this team has played against the league's best. One-hundred-thirty-nine total yards yesterday, the least the Eagles have managed since Chip Kelly arrived, the least a Kelly-head-coached team has ever amassed, college or pro. If this is how your offense looks against a top defense, in December, in your stadium, where you hadn't lost since last season's playoffs, well, an Eagles trip to Seattle or Green Bay at any point in January is going to be a big boost only to the airline industry.

THE EAGLES' crushing victory over Dallas left us Birds fans giddy with visions of the Super Bowl dancing in our heads. It made for an incredibly fun Thanksgiving weekend. But, as usual, our pessimistic side has crept back in. People have been stopping me on the street (under the misguided view that I know what I'm talking about) and asking, will we get home field advantage? Will we win the division? Are we certain to make the playoffs? WHAT'S THE WORST THAT COULD HAPPEN? That phrase made me think back to my days as a law student, when I lived alone in an attic apartment on 22nd Street and a hit song of that era was, "Worst That Could Happen.
