    Throughout most of the 1910s, they got into financial losses before renaming themselves the Pros.
    Following the 1920 season, they weren't declared as the first official APFA/NFL Champions until late April 1921 due to an argument by the Buffalo All-Americans and the Decatur Staleys with the league.
    They changed the team's name four times.
    They had three consecutive losing seasons in the NFL (1922-1924).
    In their final season as the Indians before folding, they had poor financial support and only won one game.
    They had an undefeated 1920 season with a championship win.
    They were one of the original NFL teams.
    They won their first NFL game as Al Nesser and Fritz Pollard scored touchdowns that help them beat the Wheeling Stogies, 43-0 (October 3, 1920).
    They were the first NFL team to hire a black head coach.
    Fritz Pollard is the team's only Pro Football Hall of Famer.
