Jon Gruden would like to be an NFL head coach again, and the Eagles would be wise to speak with him, Ron Jaworski said Monday. Agreeing with that this morning was former Eagles pro personnel director Mike Lombardi. Meanwhile, forget about Alabama head coach Nick Saban, despite fans clamoring on Twitter in the wake of the Crimson Tide's trouncing of Notre Dame, 42-14, in Monday night's college football championship game. "I don't have any unfinished business in the NFL ... It's not even something I want to do," Saban said Saturday, according to Brian Hamilton of the Chicago Tribune.

It never has been easy for Ron Jaworski in Philadelphia. Not coming, not going. In his 10 years as the quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, Jaworski has been booed, battered and booed some more. He also has been to a Super Bowl, which occasionally gets forgotten. But that was six years ago. That was six years and 218 sacks ago. Jaworski is older now - almost 36 - and more bruised now. He also is a free agent now, according to his agent. There is a possibility that Jaworski will be back in an Eagles uniform, but it isn't likely.

Every time you tuned on ESPN during April, chances were Ron Jaworski would show up to report on the NFL draft. But whenever he saw old NFL friends and coaches on his travels, Jaworski fielded one question more than any other: Do you have any room in your Atlantic City golf tournament for me? The 23d annual Ron Jaworski Celebrity Golf Challenge will take place Sunday and Monday at Atlantic City Country Club in Northfield. The first day features the popular Acme Celebrity Shootout, in which 10 sports figures team with amateurs for a $100,000 purse.

Bill Bergey looked delighted, as if he had just snapped a quarterback in two. He was back in a crowd at an official Eagles function, he was pressing the flesh and posing for snapshots, and he was having a blast. The most fearsome and fervent Eagles linebacker of them all had been virtually ignored during Norman Braman's nine-year tenure as owner. But now Braman was gone and Jeffrey Lurie was in. And Bergey and his old Eagles buddies were not just honored guests at Lurie's first party - they'd been encouraged to be there.

If Nick Foles shared a table with former Philadelphia quarterbacks, the select fraternity who are the only ones who understand the life Foles now lives, he would ask them about the aftermath of a bad game. "And the emotions that go with it, just how we're a unique profession," Foles said in an interview with The Inquirer. "If you have one bad game, it's really going to be talked about. . . . I would ask them how they dealt with it when they had that bad game, when everybody was down on them, what they do. Because that's what I want to learn.

OK, I've had it, I mean I've really had it. After reading the Dec. 29 article "Returning fire" I've just about had all I can take. Although I'm sorry to see Marion Campbell ousted so heartlessly before finishing the 1985 season, a change was certainly in order. If ever a team lacks imagination, it is and has been the Eagles since before the Vermeil regime. But really, who is more lacking on the field in imagination, execution, forethought, common sense, and just plain charisma than Ron Jaworski?

Once more, with feeling, Eagles owner Norman Braman says that money is not the reason that Ron Jaworski is a former Eagles quarterback. "I wish Ron Jaworski well, regardless of where he goes," Braman said yesterday, on the telephone from Miami. "I think the world of him, I really do. I like him, I like his family. He's a good guy, a businessman, an entrepreneur. I respect him as an individual and an athlete. But money was not the reason. I said that last week, and I'll say it again.

THE SOUL is not for sale, Ron Jaworski asserts, only a piece of it. Craig Spencer, one of the team's founders, recently announced he was selling a portion of his 40 percent of the team's ownership stock. This led to speculation that with a sale, the team eventually would move out of Philadelphia. Not happening, says Jaws, who owns 40 percent of the team. Three other partners (Pete Ciarrocchi, Marty Judge and Cosmo DeNicola) own another 20. Spencer is diminishing his role to spend time on other business ventures.

HAS IT REALLY been 29 years? Well, as a matter of fact, yes. So who knew it would grow to this, after such a humble start? We're talking about Ron Jaworski's Celebrity Golf Challenge, set for Sunday and Monday at Atlantic City Country Club. The event has raised over $4 million for the Jaws Youth Playbook, which helps at-risk youth in the Greater Philadelphia region. "I would have never imagined it would be running this long, or had this much impact," said Jaworski, the former Eagles quarterback and longtime ESPN analyst.

Former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski went before the Deptford Zoning Board last night, asking permission to build 45 detached condominiums on two former fairways of his Eagles' Nest golf course. But Zoning Board Chairman Ray Groller indicated that "Jaws" might be a fish out of water. Groller said that Deptford's water system does not extend to the Eagles' Nest and that Jaworski might have difficulty obtaining state permits to sink enough wells to service 45 residences. Plans call for 52 acres of the 122-acre property to be used for condominiums, which would range in size from 1,500 square feet to 3,000 square feet.

THE SOUL completed an unfortunate hat trick on Saturday night in a playoff loss at Cleveland. Cleveland's Aaron Pettrey kicked a 36-yard field goal as time expired as the Gladiators beat the Soul on the final play of the game for the third time this season. Amazing. This defeat was the most gutting, a 39-37 loss that ended the Soul's 2-year run as American Conference champions. An Arena game where neither team reaches 40 points is like an NBA game played in the 70s - and not the 1970s.

Win or lose, Sunday was a big day for the Philadelphia Soul, the arena football team co-owned by former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski. That's because the game against the Iowa Barnstormers marked the first time since 2008 that sports network ESPN showed an Arena Football League game, the first one telecast this season. "It is ridiculously exciting to have the worldwide leader back with the Arena Football League," Jaworski, 63, said Thursday, stopping for a conversation in the ballroom of Valleybrook Country Club, one of five golf courses he owns in the region.

It's been a long offseason for the Soul, who lost the ArenaBowl to Arizona. But for quarterback Dan Raudabaugh, it's been especially long. The Soul fell, 48-39, to Arizona in last year's title game, but had possession and a chance to take the lead with less than a minute remaining. "It was about 51/2 months but it felt like 51/2 years," said Raudabaugh, who was a four-year starter at Miami of Ohio. "Two long off-seasons in a row. " Now it's time for the Soul to get back to work.

  THE ARENA Football League's decision to take its championship away from a neutral site was economically fueled. If neutral sites helped the bottom line, they'd still be in play. So after two seasons, the league has gone back to awarding the championship game to the conference champion with the better record. The league is still populated by franchises that have and franchises that have not. The Soul is a franchise that has. So when Philadelphia visits Arizona, another successful franchise but from the opposite conference, it not only will be looking to avenge consecutive championship-game losses, the Soul also will be trying to get a leg up on hosting the 2014 championship game.

HARRY GAMBLE was a South Jersey native. That's where his football career began, at the high-school level. But he would become the coach at Penn, then later become general manager and team president of the Eagles. So Jim Murray considers him a Philadelphian. For another guy with ties to those two institutions, there is no higher compliment. "We're all part of the same family," said Murray, who preceded Gamble as the Birds' GM. "It's like the foundation of our existence. We have this thing that's extremely special.

Goodwill . . . no, wait When an anonymous letter purportedly from neighbors arrived complaining about our Christmas decorations being up before Thanksgiving, my wife and I were both very upset. Our decorations are in no way outrageous, and we live on a semi-rural road outside a subdivision. We have a grand total of eight strings of lights on our four-acre property - three illuminated bushes. Being friends with a diverse group of people, we not only display the traditional red and green of Christmas, but also the blue and white of Hanukkah and the winter season in general.

RON JAWORSKI faded back to pass. Peered downfield waiting for a sliver of daylight between receiver and defender. Drifted right, still searching. Thousand-and-two, thousand-and-three, thousand-and- pow ! This was Oct. 26, 1980, against the Bears, at Veterans Stadium. Jaworski never saw Mike Hartenstine. Never heard him, never sensed him. In boxing, the punches that do the most damage are the ones you don't see coming. Pow! Hartenstine speared Jaworski from behind, planting his helmet in the middle of the 7 on Jaworski's back.

PHILADELPHIA The express subway from Center City was a sea of green jerseys and expectant smiles. No one knew - not yet - that the Eagles would lose Sunday. They were still high on the previous win, still gung-ho. George Flowers, 60, of Villanova - wearing an old Brian Westbook jersey - was one of the hopeful. "This team was dead two years ago," he said. "Now it's alive. Philly's alive. " Zeb Stokes and son Alex, 27, have been going to games together for 22 years. "They look more like a team now," he said.
