About The Philadelphia Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles are a professional American football team based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Eagles are at present members of the Eastern Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). They play their home games at Lincoln Financial Field and wear jerseys of green, silver, black, and white. The team began play in 1924 as the Frankford (Pennsylvania) Yellow Jackets. But in 1933, owners Bert Bell and Lud Wray moved the team to Philadelphia and renamed it the Eagles after the symbol of the National Recovery Administration, which had been created as part of the New Deal. The Eagles have won three NFL titles (1948, 1949, and 1960) and made two Super Bowl appearances.
The Eagles’ consecutive NFL titles in 1948 and 1949 came under head coach Earle “Greasy” Neale. His team comprised future Hall of Famers like Pete Pihos, Steve Van Buren and Chuck Bednarik. They won their third NFL crown in 1960. Norm Van Brocklin, playing his last season, was adjudged the league’s most valuable player (MVP). Van Brocklin helped Tommy McDonald and Pete Retzlaff rally to overcome the Green Bay Packers in the championship game. After Van Brocklin called it a day, another future Hall of Famer Sonny Jurgensen took his place in 1961.
From 1962 through 1977, in spite of employing six different head coaches, the Eagles could not remain an NFL force. They failed to reach the playoffs until 1978, when Dick Vermeil was in his second year as head coach. From 1978 to 1981 Vermeil guided the Eagles to four back-to-back playoff appearances. In 1981 the team advanced to the Super Bowl, where they lost to the Philadelphia Eagles 27-10.
After a barren period of six years, the Eagles qualified for the postseason four times from 1988 to 1992. Led by former Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan, the Eagles developed a slashing offense centered around Randall Cunningham, who was the team’s top rusher each year from 1987 to 1990. Under head coach Ray Rhodes, Philadelphia earned Wild Card berths in the playoffs in 1995 and 1996.
The Eagles succeeded in ending a playoff and Super Bowl drought when they went to Super Bowl XXXIX and lost to the New England Patriots 24-21 in February, 2005.
It is customary for Eagles supporters to sing the team’s fight song with little to no provocation, but always following an Eagles touchdown. The lyrics are as follows:
Fly, Eagles Fly, on the road to victory! (FIGHT!!, FIGHT!!, FIGHT!!) Fight, Eagles Fight, score a touchdown one-two-three! (ONE!!, TWO!!, THREE!!) Hit'em low, hit'em high, and watch our Eagles fly! Fly, Eagles Fly, on the road to victory! E-A-G-L-E-S, EAGLES!
There have been a number of instances until now when some Eagles fans have transgressed the boundaries of civilized behavior and earned a reputation in many quarters as being unduly rowdy, or even dangerous.
