Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 1933 Philadelphia Eagles season was their inaugural in the league. The team went 3-5-1 failing to qualify for the playoffs. When Pennsylvania eased some of the Blue Laws and allowed Sunday sporting events, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh became available for NFL franchises as they could play home games on Sundays. The Frankford Yellow Jackets played their games on Saturday mostly when at home. During the off season Bert Bell and Lud Wray are granted a expansion franchise in the NFL for the rights to Philadelphia. The previous team, Frankford Yellow Jackets were inactive for 2 years so their rights were pulled by the NFL. They joined the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Cincinnati Reds, for a $2500 entrance fee. The Eagles got their name from the New Deal's program called the NRA, and the symbol of the eagle that they had.show more
