For those who wondered who the short guy was in the postgame prayer huddle after the Eagles-Cowboys game last Sunday, it was Widener running back Leon "Major" Payne. Payne's idol is Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith. Payne grew up in Gainesville, Fla., when Smith starred there at the University of Florida. When Comcast SportsNet did a feature on Payne, he mentioned his admiration for Smith. Comcast's people arranged for the 5-2, 155-pound Payne to be on the field for the Eagles-Cowboys game.

Mr. Jaworski went to Washington yesterday. And although the power-brokers of the Republican Party whispered in his ear, "Run, Ron, run," he said that he is not a candidate for Gov. Florio's former congressional seat. Yet. It has been a heady week for the former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, now a quarterback with the Kansas City Chiefs. During a telephone conversation on Tuesday with John H. Sununu, the White House chief of staff, Jaworski said that Sununu told him that if he ran, President Bush would campaign for him in South Jersey's First District.

Stop the presses! It seems that the National Football League has discovered women. Hoping to increase its audience, the league has come up with a "Women's Initiative" to try to figure out how to make football more appealing to those of us with XX chromosomes. The plans are ambitious - a line of leisurewear, a series of "NFL 101 for Women" seminars. But three weeks into the season, it seems the league still has a ways to go. The games I used to attend at the University of Michigan - college games, but what's the difference?

Combo guard Lou Williams, who strained his right hamstring in the loss to Milwaukee, went through practice on Tuesday. After practice, he ran some light sprints to test the hamstring. Although Williams has already been ruled out of Wednesday night's game, Sixers coach Doug Collins said he felt Williams would be ready for the playoff opener. "I don't think people realize - I do and our team does - Lou is our personality," Collins said. "He's our voice. He gets us into the huddles; he gets us out of the huddles.

A Dennis Rodman controversy? Not this time. Not at all. That's true, even though Rodman remained on the fringe of the San Antonio Spurs' last two timeout huddles in Monday night's 94-93 loss to the Houston Rockets, even though he wasn't on the court for the Spurs' final offensive play. "Nothing happened," said Spurs guard Doc Rivers, explaining Rodman usually stays on the outskirts of timeout huddles, that he rarely is on the floor for a final offensive play in a close game, that he almost always removes his shoes during timeouts to massage his feet.

The worst week of the year is upon us. There are other bad weeks - the week before your income tax is due, the week after you come back from your vacation, the first week the kids are home from school - but this week is the worst of all. It is the week before the Super Bowl. Like it or not, the Super Bowl has become a national institution, on the order of the Miss America contest or Dutch elm disease. There is no escape from it. It seeps into the consciousness even of those who are otherwise indifferent to football.

Join the Army and see the world. Go to places such as Dublin, Ireland. In shoulder pads, yet. Alas, the Army lost a battle in Europe, this one a 38-24 decision to Boston College on Saturday in the Emerald Isle Classic before 42,525 mostly confused but highly entertained fans at Dublin's Lansdowne Road Stadium. It was the first NCAA Division I-A game ever played in Europe and, all cultural experiences aside, it left Army a bit behind in its preparation for the 89th meeting between the Cadets and Navy at Veterans Stadium on Dec. 3. "Except for the outcome of the game, it was a great experience," said Jack Hecker, one of coach Jim Young's assistants.

Coach Doug Pederson has not yet spoken to Nelson Agholor since the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office declined to file charges against the Eagles wide receiver following allegations of sexual assault. Pederson said he did not feel it was necessary, and he said he will speak privately with Agholor when the player reports to camp this week. "Obviously, all the information wasn't in yet, so at the time I wasn't going to answer or speculate," Pederson said. "I'm still not going to comment too much on it. I just know this: that everybody, we all make mistakes.

MINNEAPOLIS - As batting practice neared conclusion Wednesday, Bob McClure searched for Aaron Nola. The two men had a date with a computer in the bowels of Target Field. The Phillies pitching coach would analyze video of the young righthander's many mistakes, and maybe they would find a flaw. But, as McClure waited for his pupil, he was convinced that Nola's three-start swoon extends beyond mere pitching mechanics. "When guys just start pitching and stop thinking about this or that, then they end up being OK," McClure said.

Camden Catholic football coach Nick Strom says he watches his language around his team. "We don't use the 'H' word," Strom said. Every other South Jersey team is allowed to say the word huddle . But fewer and fewer are doing it. It's one thing for a young, innovative first-year coach such as Strom or an iconoclast such as Pennsville's Ryan Wood or a mad scientist of an offensive coordinator such as Paul VI's Russ Horton to feature...

NEWPORT, R.I. - Matt Rhule's decision not to redshirt freshman quarterback P.J. Walker last season wound up being a good move by the Temple coach.   All Walker did as a freshman was rank third in American Athletic Conference pass efficiency (150.8) and help the Owls set a school record for passing yards in a season (2,996). Those numbers are why the sophomore is on the watch list for the Davey O'Brien Award, which is presented to college football's top quarterback. "I think it's really hard for all freshmen to play at that level," Rhule said Tuesday at the AAC media day. "But P.J. started as a freshman in high school.

Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,   I lift my lamp beside the golden door! - Emma Lazarus Even as those words were engraved on a plaque within the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty in 1903, many Americans didn't believe in them. Consequently, more than a century later, it's no surprise to find neo-nativists who feel no sympathy for thousands of Central American children who found their way to this country by dubious means.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State football players emerged from the Lasch Football Building at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday after meeting with their new coach, James Franklin, for the first time. Roll was taken at the meeting, which lasted about 30 minutes. Every player attended, including Penn State's five early enrollees. None was made available to the media afterward. On Saturday, Penn State formally introduced Franklin in a news conference at Beaver Stadium. "It is going to be a sprint from here on out, and that is talking to the players, the current players," Franklin said.

After their lawyers had spent an hour clashing over what state was better suited for hearing their dispute, the two partners grappling for control of The Inquirer met behind closed doors Monday with a Philadelphia judge. Lewis Katz and George E. Norcross III spent 44 minutes in the City Hall chambers of Common Pleas Court Judge Patricia McInerney - who sources said had privately pushed both sides to consider a settlement in the days before Monday's hearing. Katz and Norcross emerged from McInerney's chambers shortly before noon, then huddled with their lawyers while a scrum of reporters and others watched.

Here are some observations and ruminations about Sunday's Eagles victory over the Ravens: During the days leading to the game, much of the talk centered on the Ravens' no-huddle offense. Well, the Eagles unleashed a hurry-up offense of their own. On the first drive, quarterback Michael Vick called plays at the line, and the Birds marched down the field. The series, of course, ended with Vick's first interception, but the offense had some success. The Eagles brought it out later in the game, and, when they needed it on the game-winning drive, Vick ran the no-huddle effortlessly.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Training camp is for trying out new things. The Eagles are experimenting with a different way to relay plays to their defense, especially when an opponent switches to the hurry-up offense. "We're not huddling as much as we did last year," linebacker Casey Matthews said Friday. "Last year we huddled and the [middle linebacker] would be the only one looking for the call. This year, with offenses going at such a quicker pace, we're all just looking at the call.
