    Oh so close, amigo. You nailed the first 3. And you got the last 4. However, #4 is still out there.

    1. Chicago Bears
    2. Arizona Cardinals
    3. Green Bay Packers
    4. ?
    5. Detroit Lions
    6. Washington Redskins
    7. Philadelphia Eagles
    8. Pittsburgh Steelers

    For bonus points:

    The Bears and Cards started the same year, and are the only remaining franchises from that original year of professional football. What names did these two franchises go by in that inaugural season?

    Thanks, bison. Any little tidbit you have is not recognized by any reference i've researched. Paper or net. So when you reveal the secret, you'll rewrite the record books! Go bison.
    Or are you going to disappoint .

    I called into my local radio station. 790 The Sports Animal with Charlie Pallilo. And they had nothing. Please tell me bison!




    RAM ON!

    Actually, the Cardinals are the oldest football franchise in North America. They were established in 1898.
