End of Eagles Career

Despite compiling generally good statistics during his tenure with the Eagles (which lasted through 1986), he sometimes threw ill-timed interceptions and fans occasionally demanded his replacement by the team's second-string quarterback, Joe Pisarcik. Likewise, the Eagles did not return to the successes of the 1978-81 playoff years under their new head coach, Marion Campbell (the "Swamp Fox"). Following a shaky performance in the 1985 season-opener, he was benched and replaced by rookie Randall Cunningham in Week 2; Jaws subsequently regained the starter's role and performed well, earning NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors in Week 7. He also tied an NFL record with a 99-yard touchdown pass to Mike Quick in 1985. After more injuries to Jaws in 1986, Cunningham remained the starter and the team did not re-sign Jaworski at season's end. He finished with 69 wins, 67 losses and 1 tie as the Eagles starting QB.
