History

The Philadelphia Eagles are members of the National Football Conference in the NFL and were founded in 1933 by Bert Bell and Lud Wray. The city of Philadelphia was awarded an expansion franchise by the NFL after the 1931 Frankfurt Yellow Jackets went bankrupt. The league wanted to replace the defunct franchise and granted Bell and Wray a new team.  

The Eagles were named by the owners who got the inspiration from Franklin D. Roosevelt’s National Recovery Act -- its symbol was an eagle. The team inherited the assets of the Yellow Jackets franchise. However, they are considered a separate franchise due to a period of dormancy from 1931 to 1933 when the Eagles began play.

The Eagles played most of their home games at Shibe Park (which was later renamed Connie Mack Stadium) from 1936 until 1957. During this time, the football club appeared in three straight NFL Championship games in 1947, 1948, and again in 1949. They lost the first of these contests, but became the only team in NFL history to win back to back NFL titles by shutting out their opponents in each victory. In 1958, the team moved into Franklin Stadium, which in 1969 became the first NFL stadium to use artificial turf. During the team’s time in Franklin Stadium, they claimed a third NFL Championship in 1960.

In 1971, the Eagles began play at Veterans Stadium, which would remain the home of the franchise until 2003. During this period, the club appeared in the 1980 Super Bowl, which they lost to the Oakland Raiders.

The team would also draft legendary pass rusher Reggie White in 1985. White became the NFL’s all-time leader in sacks later in his career, most of which he spent as a member of the Eagles. During the 1990’s, quarterback Randal Cunningham emerged as a star, becoming the first QB to rush for 1,000 yards in a single season. However, the club would not reach another Super Bowl until 2004 against the New England Patriots. By this time, the team had moved into another new home stadium: Lincoln Financial Stadium. The Eagles once again came up short, losing the Super Bowl to the Patriots.
