    DescriptionNo team in Philadelphia pulls on the hearts and minds of its fans more than the Eagles. From Bert Bell to Earle 'Greasy' Neale to Andy Reid, from Sonny Jurgensen to Norm Van Brocklin, to Ron Jaworski, to Randall Cunningham to Donovan McNabb, the fans of the Philadelphia Eagles now have the complete history of the team in their hands. In these pages, we read about the greatest moments in Eagles history, and of the men who helped found the team and create modern football. The book brings to life Bert Bell, who bought the franchise of the defunct Frankford Yellow jackets and renamed the team after the symbol of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, and who later became the NFL's commissioner and invented the college draft.We follow the season-by-season play of the team, whose first winning record was the season when the Eagles and Steelers merged due to manpower shortages during WWII. And more than anything, we revel in the years of triumph: the Duffel Bag Dynasty, when the Eagles went to three consecutive NFL championship games, and won two back to back; the 1960 title victory against the Green Bay Packers; the first Superbowl appearance in 1980; and the magical opening of the 21st century, which has seen four consecutive NFC championship games and the team's return to the Superbowl. Written by "Football Hall of Fame" writer Ray Didinger and acclaimed local sports history Robery S. Lyons, "The Eagles Enyclopedia" is an indispensible year by year guidebook for every fan of one of football's most storied franchises.
