The ‘Birds Were Born
On this day in 1933 (July 8th) the NFL granted Philly an expansion franchise after the Yellow Jackets folded in 1931. The Eagles were born, there were some rough years but in 1947 the ‘Birds went on a run that would take them to 3 consecutive NFL Championship games winning 2 by shut outs which is still an NFL record. The ‘Birds won 3 NFL Championships in 13 years and Bleeding Green was now a reality.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY EAGLES
