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.

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.

LANDOVER, Md. - This gaffe was not as egregious as the one DeSean Jackson made as a rookie wide receiver for the Eagles in 2008. Jackson lost what would have been his first NFL touchdown when he celebrated too early and flipped the ball behind him at the 1-yard line. After a challenge by the Dallas Cowboys, what was initially called a touchdown was overturned. It was an embarrassing lesson for Jackson but not costly to the Eagles because they scored a touchdown on the next play.

EAGLES (+1) over Bills "Uncle!!!" . . . Remember when you were arm wrestling back in the day and cried that to admit defeat? Kinda like tapping out in a UFC mixed martial arts match. Not ashamed to admit that Kelly 's Heroes have given me agita all season long, and predicting the outcome of their games is about as easy as finding a ticket for Bruce Springsteen 's upcoming tour. They come off two of the ugliest games in NFL history (losing by a combined total of 90-31)

Eagles (Pick 'em) over LIONS What? Really? Are you kidding me? A 45-17 beatdown against the Buccaneers. Not the Patriots . . . Not the Panthers . . . Not the Cardinals. The Tampa Bay Freakin' Bucs. Not the ugliest loss in the Chip Kelly era, but we'll get back to that in a minute. Jameis Winston: Five touchdown passes. Doug Martin: 235 rushing yards. What? You know it's really bad when you start your prayers at night, and Sam Bradford - coming off a concussion, with a sprained left shoulder, and some memory loss - is the lead.

DESEAN JACKSON had a quieter-than-expected return for the Redskins Sunday. The former Eagles wide receiver, who hadn't played since hurting his hamstring in Week 1, was targeted six times but caught only three passes for 15 yards in a 17-10 loss to the Patriots. Quarterback Kirk Cousins, who was named the starter over Robert Griffin III this season, finished 22-for-40 for 217 yards and one touchdown. There were seven dropped passes, although none by Jackson, who voiced his unhappiness with his team's offensive effort after the game.

EAGLES (-5) over Cowboys Chip Kelly has done some strange things since taking over in 2013. But the King of Strange might be the way he deployed 2014 Offensive Player of the Year, DeMarco Murray in Week 1. Eight carries for 9 yards. Seriously? Was D-Marc a $42 million decoy? Let's see, eight carries at $42 million is like $5.25 mill per attempt. Move over, Ronda Rousey . . . Excuse me, Floyd Mayweather Jr. . . . Step aside, Cristiano Ronaldo . . . Those numbers would make Murray the highest-paid athlete in the world.

THE EAGLES preseason has been punctuated by some in-your-face performances. Tim Tebow running for a touchdown to the delight of the crowd in the first game against the Colts. The tag-team interception by Nolan Carroll and Walter Thurmond against Joe Flacco and the Ravens. Kenjon Barner exploding for two punt-return touchdowns in the first two games, turning a little dunk pass into a 50-yard gain against Green Bay the other night. Then there were all those stuffed runs. And a secondary that appeared so improved, the head coach gave it a nickname: "Lactose intolerant.

SAM BRADFORD is less than two weeks away from playing in his first NFL regular-season game in nearly two years. I was curious what he is feeling right now as he tries to move on from back-to-back ACL tears and the back-to-back rehabs that accompanied them. Excitement? Relief? Worry? Cautious optimism? "It's nothing but excitement for me," Bradford said yesterday. "I've been excited this whole preseason. Excited just to get back on the field. I was excited for Baltimore and I was even more excited to be out there for Green Bay for three series.

Quron Pratt and Rasheed Bailey - wide receivers with local connections - figure to receive extended playing time Thursday night in the Eagles' final exhibition game of the season against the host New York Jets. Yes, their chances of making the team are slight, but each player is looking at the matchup as an audition of sorts. For any team. "Like Chip [Kelly] says, if you don't make it here, he wants us to make it with another team. That's his goal," said Pratt, a 5-foot-11, 195-pound wide receiver from Rutgers via Palmyra who was a member of the Eagles' practice squad last year.
