Philadelphia Eagles 2021: News, Schedule, Roster, Score, Injury Report

The Philadelphia football franchise entered the NFL as a replacement for the Frankford Yellow Jackets. Named the Philadelphia Eagles, they made their professional football debut alongside the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Reds. The former still features in the NFL whilst the latter folded after merely 2 seasons. 

For the 1943 season, they merged with their state rivals Pittsburgh Steelers to form ‘The Steagles’. 

Following the war, the Eagles emerged as a top team. They reached their inaugural season-ending game for the 1947 season. Following a setback, they claimed back-to-back championships in 1948 and 1949 without allowing the opposition a single point. Their feat speaks volumes about their robust defense. 

The franchise has changed their home field 3 more times since claiming consecutive NFL championships. 

Currently, they sit 23rd on the Forbes list for the most valuable sports teams of all time. ‘The Birds’ or ‘The Iggles’ as they are known feature prominently with the colors of silver, midnight green, and black. Moreover, they are one of the few NFL teams to have an official fight song

The Philadelphia Eagles play in the NFC East division. They feature alongside the Washington Football Team, New York Giants, and Dallas Cowboys. With 5th-year quarterback Carson Wentz and Head Coach Doug Pederson, the franchise will look to qualify outright to the Playoffs and defend their NFC East divisional title. 

Owner Achievements

Jeffrey Lurie and his family were great football fans. Lurie purchased the Eagles a few months before the 1994 NFL season for $198 million. The purchase came a year after Kraft defeated him in a bidding war for the New England Patriots

Despite his ownership role of an NFL team, Lurie remained in the production business and claimed an Academy Award for producing ‘Inside Job’. 

Achievements

The Eagles have won the league 4 times, with 3 of those wins coming before the Super Bowl era. The franchise lifted the trophy at Super Bowl LII after beating the fancied New England Patriots with backup quarterback Nick Foles.

Philadelphia Eagles have claimed their conference championship 4 times. Their record has been good for the season as they have made the Playoffs 27 times despite winning their division on just 14 occasions. 

The Philadelphia Eagles can boast of just one player to have claimed the NFL regular season MVP award. This honor belongs to former quarterback and Hall of Famer Norm Van Brocklin, who won for the 1960 NFL season. 

Logo

The Philadelphia Eagles have had multiple logo designs over the course of their 87-year-long stint in professional football. The initial design lasted for 3 seasons. It featured a dark blue Eagle in flight carrying a football in its talons. In 1936, they changed the Eagle’s color to green and tweaked the angle of the football it had a hold of. This version of the logo featured the Eagle soaring through the sky. 

In the ‘Steagles’ era, the hastily cobbled up team introduced a new logo. It was a black color eagle swooping downwards as though performing a touchdown. 

In 1944, the Philadelphia Eagles opted for a light green eagle with elements retained from their ‘Steagles’ design. 4 seasons down the line, they introduced yet another logo design. This time, the eagle had its wings spread wide, and it held the football only in its left claw. 

This logo lasted for 2 decades before the franchise opted for a short-lived yet sharper version of the logo. 

The next big change came about ahead of the 1973 NFL season. Philadelphia Eagles departed from their traditional Eagle carrying a football logo and incorporated a green helmet with a gray wing above the visor. 

It lasted for 14 NFL seasons before the Eagle swooped back in. This time it was flying from left to right and had an eye-catching 4-color combination. 

Finally, in 1996, The Philadelphia Eagles adopted the logo that is on their uniforms even today. It features an eagle with a prominent beak and eye as it surveys the scene below. 

Philadelphia Eagles Sponsors

The Eagles entered into a multiyear sponsorship with FOX Bet, which came in with a branded interactive studio at Lincoln Financial Field. The custom Eagles content will be brought in by Eagles on-air personalities and Eagles legends. Moreover, FOX Bet will serve as the presenting sponsor of Eagles Edge, a new program following all Eagles games.

Moreover, the franchise also signed a deal with DraftKings that made them the official daily sports betting partner. Not to mention, a sponsorship also came in with Pepsi after an 8-year absence as the Eagles’ drink ambassador. The deal includes Pepsi getting naming rights to an area outside Lincoln Financial Field.
