About the Frames

Many centuries ago, it was decided by the gods that Philadelphia was never going to win a Super Bowl. And so the great football-loving city of Philly has resigned to find joy in the sport in other ways. Nobody did this better than Buddy Ryan, head coach of the Eagles from 1986-1990.

Buddy Ryan was not from Philadelphia, and he didn't arrive in our city until he was at the ripe old age of 61. But even though he took a long time to get here, it was totally obvious from day one that he was one of us. It was as if he had taken a class on being a Philadelphian: he had the quintessential FU attitude that tells people that you're gonna do whatever you want to do, and if it bothers them, then all the better!

Buddy never won the Super Bowl as coach of the Philadelphia Eagles football team (heck, he never even won a playoff game), but he was one of us and the people loved him. He represented Philly better than any other football coach the city has ever had. His defense was an all time squad, and he beat the stinkin' Dallas Cowboys eight out of the nine times he played them (and drove them wild every time). Buddy always enjoyed telling people where to stick it (even his boss, the owner of the team) and the fans had his back! His legacy was the most entertaining and fun period of football that we ever got to enjoy—we love you Buddy!
