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.

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.

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.

ATLANTIC CITY - The Soul's first foray into Atlantic City wasn't a royal flush, but it wasn't snake eyes either. The local arena team hauled its 50-yard field and its own padded walls down the AC Expressway for its first-ever regular-season home game away from the South Philly sports complex. After a sluggish first half, the Soul dispatched Las Vegas, 51-43. But the Boardwalk experiment was more than a football game for the AFL, which is forever trying to nudge its way up to the feeding dish occupied by the more mainstream sports in Philadelphia.

A REAL GOOD setup for the Soul just got a little bit better. Fresh off a 44-point steamrolling of Tampa Bay, the Soul (8-1) is playing the reeling Las Vegas Outlaws in the first-ever AFL game at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall on Saturday at 6 p.m. The Outlaws will be without starting quarterback J.J. Raterink, who has a broken pinkie on his right (throwing) hand. Sean Brackett, a rookie out of Columbia, will get the start. "That's certainly an advantage," said Soul owner and former NFL quarterback Ron Jaworski.

While the Eagles look for a wide receiver to replace Jeremy Maclin, the Soul have found one. Marques Colston, the New Orleans Saints' all-time leader in four receiving categories, won't be playing for the Soul anytime soon. Instead, the 10-year veteran, who joined the Soul as an ownership partner last fall, will be closely involved with the team. "With me being on the back end of my career, I know they are going to show me the door sooner rather than later," Colston, a seventh-round draft pick out of Hofstra, said of the Saints.

WIDE RECEIVER Marques Colston will be entering his 10th year with the Saints. He is in the red zone of his football life and he's at peace that his playing days are numbered. "Me being on the back end of my career, I know the transition [is inevitable]," said Colston, who joined the ownership group of the Soul this offseason. "They're going to show me the door sooner rather than later. " Colston, 31, had been the owner of a minor league arena football team that played in Harrisburg the last 3 years.

Most evaluations of the Eagles' new quarterback come with a two-word caveat that seems attached to Sam Bradford's name: if healthy . The qualifier shows both the risk the Eagles absorbed in Tuesday's trade and the potential reward that could come their way. "When I put the question mark on him, that's it," said former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski, an ESPN analyst. "I don't question his talent, his ability, his cerebral ability to lead a football team and run an offense. But he's got to stay healthy.

WITH ALL the negative news surrounding Atlantic City and the casinos shutting their doors, the Soul and majority owner Ron Jaworski hope to bring some positivity to the Jersey Shore. It's not yet been finalized, but the Daily News has learned that a deal is in the works for the Soul to play two games at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall this upcoming season. The first game would be in March - and televised nationally on ESPN - while the other would be at a later date. The Soul is in negotiations with the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority on the potential deal.

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.

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.
