The National Football League (NFL) is made up of teams with interesting histories. The Philadelphia Eagles make up a part of the colorful tapestry. Founded after the Great Depression, they were named the Eagles because the symbol for the New Deal programs was an eagle. Being in Philadelphia, the birth place of Democracy is also an important distinction for this team. While they have been national champions, their notoriety is in the players who with drive and a little flair have stood out. Defensive player Reggie White, quarterback Ron Jaworski, and currently Randal Cunningham are just a few of these players. Author Mark Stewart delivers to readers a wealth of information regarding this team. Part of the "Team Spirit" series of books, the photographs and text help readers to see how the Philadelphia Eagles exemplify the spirit of team.
