Blast from the Past! 1945 in COLOR!

Now and then, we at the GUD stumble upon some pure visual gold that makes all of this research a visual feast to the eyes.

We discovered this gem on and were thrilled to find it.

It's a regular season game from 1945. The teams are the Cleveland Rams and the Philadelphia Eagles. The game is played in Philly's Shibe Park. The Rams are in blue and the Eagles in green. The final score was Eagles 28, Rams 14. This was the Rams lone loss in the season. The Rams, led by rookie quarterback Bob Waterfield, would defeat the Washington Redskins in the NFL Championship 15-14 at frozen Cleveland Municipal Stadium.

This clip falls into the "too good not to share" category.

  1. This is going to sound like a really weird question but did all football players back then have 'bi-donka-donks'? Or did they all wear these really huge pads back there?
