Edward Joseph Michaels (born Mikolajewski) (June 11, 1914 – January 21, 1976) was an American football guard in the National Football League for the Chicago Bears, the Washington Redskins, and the Philadelphia Eagles. Michaels also played on the "Steagles", a merged team consisting of the Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers in 1943. The team was the result of a league-wide manning shortage brought on by World War II. Many of the "Steagles" players were labeled 4-F's, those deemed physically unfit due to ailments such as ulcers, flat feet and even partial blindness. Michaels was labeled a 4F because he was nearly deaf.
In 1976, he was inducted into the Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame.
