I COME HERE not to bury Ron Jaworski. He is a far more prolific football analyst, golf course developer, and product pitchman than the average man, certainly more so than the threesome who apparently invited him to sit in on their interviews as they searched for the next head coach of the Eagles. Had I been charged with selecting that coach, I'm not sure that I would have had any less confidence in Jaws than I would have had in Jeffrey Lurie or Howie Roseman. In fact, one can argue that he was the most qualified guy in the room.

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.

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.

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.

SOUL COACH Clint Dolezel had an interesting observation after watching video of last week's 44-point win over Tampa Bay. "I wouldn't want to play us right now," the coach said firmly. Halfway through the 18-game schedule, the Soul are sitting at 8-1 with one of the most anticipated regular-season games in the team's 10 seasons of play. The Soul will bus down the Atlantic City Expressway this afternoon in advance of tomorrow's home game against Las Vegas at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall.

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.

CARSON WENTZ was wearing his perspective on his shirt Thursday. Across the front of his dark gray, long-sleeve T-shirt were four words, the last one in all caps: "I play for HIM. " In case you hadn't noticed, Philadelphia has gone completely gaga over the rookie quarterback since his 278-yard, two-touchdown NFL debut in Sunday's 29-10 win over Cleveland. The indifference Eagles fans felt toward Sam Bradford has been replaced by unbridled love for this 6-5, 240-pound, God-fearing North Dakota version of Opie Taylor.

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.

NEW ORLEANS Saints wide receiver Marques Colston is close to joining the ownership group of the Philadelphia Soul. Colston owns the Harrisburg Stampede, a franchise in the Professional Indoor Football League, which is a lower level than the Arena Football League in which the Soul plays. Colston's ownership share in the Soul couldn't be determined. The 31-year-old holds every significant receiving record for the Saints, and was a key player when New Orleans won the Super Bowl following the 2009 season.

It's official. The 2017 NFL draft will be held on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. And if Mayor Kenney has his way, first-round picks will take a jog up the Art Museum steps à la Rocky as they are announced. Representatives from the NFL and the Eagles joined Kenney at City Hall on Thursday to announce the location for the 82nd draft, scheduled for April 27 to 29. The NFL will create an outdoor theater in front of the Art Museum for the event and transform the surrounding area into "Draft Town.

A BURNED-OUT Dick Vermeil did Marion Campbell no favors in January of 1983 when he abruptly resigned as the Eagles' coach and recommended to owner Leonard Tose that Campbell replace him. Vermeil left Campbell, who passed away last week at the age of 87, an aging team that was on the decline. Many of the key players who had helped the Eagles make it to the Super Bowl in 1980 were either gone or on the downside of their careers. "His head coaching experience (with the Eagles and twice with the Atlanta Falcons)

ALLENTOWN - Blue-and-black boa around his neck and plastic pigskin hat covering his eyes, Mike Hollenbach leaned over the 5-yard line. "Let's hit these guys hard today," Hollenbach bellowed as Soul players warmed up in front of him. "We're going to play hard today. " Walking the sideline, Ron Jaworski laughed as he shook Hollenbach's hand. "Keep the noise down, my brother," joked Jaworski, the former Eagles quarterback and Soul owner. Hollenbach knows the Soul's owners, players, and coaches.

Ron Jaworski has enjoyed much success over the years as the longtime Eagles starting quarterback, an ESPN football analyst, and a businessman. But he still loves to talk about the times he used to sneak onto South Park, a nine-hole public golf course in Buffalo, and play a few holes. "Where I went to junior high school, we'd have a lunch break and we could walk a couple of hundred yards to a par-3 that was 110 yards over water," he recalled recently. "We had a club stashed away and a bunch of us would hit balls over this water.

FROM THE OUTSIDE peering in, it would seem as if the Arena Football League is taking on water. Four more teams were subtracted this offseason, the 18-game schedule was reduced to 16 and everybody gets to make the playoffs. It's been a chaotic seven months since last year's championship, which San Jose won to cap an historic 20-win season. Even the Sabercats had to cease operations because of money problems. "It was a tumultuous offseason in revamping our league," Soul majority owner Ron Jaworski said at the team's media day in Voorhees on Tuesday.

The wait is over. The Eagles officially named Doug Pederson head coach on Monday. Pederson, who arrived in Philadelphia on Monday morning, is to be introduced at a news conference at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the NovaCare Complex. He becomes the 23d head coach in franchise history, including those who held the interim tag. "Doug is a strategic thinker, a compelling leader and communicator, and someone who truly knows how to get the best out of his players," Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said in a statement.

THERE WERE 20 to 25 candidates "that we spent a lot of time on," when the Eagles made a list of head-coaching possibilities, Ron Jaworski said Friday. He said a thorough vetting process knocked the candidates down to the half-dozen who were interviewed, with Doug Pederson emerging as the eventual choice. Jaworski served as a "special adviser" to the search committee of team chairman Jeffrey Lurie, team president Don Smolenski and vice president Howie Roseman. Jaworski said veteran former NFL general manager Bill Polian also advised, though Polian did not sit in on interviews.

The game-winning touchdown from last year's Eagles-Cardinals game came on the big screen in a production room at NFL Films' Mount Laurel campus Friday morning, and Ron Jaworski and Merril Hoge both saw exactly what happened in the Birds' loss. They had studied the film throughout the week. Jaworski, the former Eagles quarterback, and fellow ESPN analyst Hoge identified the play as a key discussion point for Sunday's rematch. After seeing how the 75-yard touchdown catch exposed a major threat to the Eagles defense, they turned their attention to a blitz in a Cardinals-49ers game on Nov. 29. It was a "triple-A gap blitz" - the type of jargon former players use when they speak freely about football.
