If you are clever enough to understand why the symbol's an eagle then you are clever enough for Ravenclaw

it has nothing to do with the fact that ravenclaw was her name...it's like asking why gryffindor is a lion and not a gryphon or why hufflepuff is a badger and not...a horklump i guess

Here is my interpretation.
A raven's eyes are far worse than an eagles, but an eagle's claws are far less tenacious than a ravens. So in compromise, the group took the best of the two.
Yeah I know eagles mean freedom and air and stuff like that.

I doubt Ms.Umbridge would talk like that. She'd be more of a bitch.

They named it Ravenclaw because they already knew their name couldn't be any worse than "Hufflepuff".

I heard the colors blue and bronze, and the eagle (specifically for the feather) were chosen because they correspond with air. (with hufflepuff as earth, Gryffindor as fire, and slytherin as water.)

Well, the Gryffindor symbol isn't much of a griffin, is it now?

Copied from the wikia:

"Even though the word "Raven" is in Ravenclaw's name, the crest of her house depicts an eagle. It is interesting to note that Albania is sometimes considered the "Land of Eagles" in the 16th century and that Rowena's daughter fled to Albania. It is therefore possible that Rowena's family or her husband's (father of Helena) came from Albania before settling into Scotland."

Judging by this only, if nothing else already proves it, Rowena Ravenclaw came from Albania and it is called the Land of Eagles, which is why it is an eagle. I don't know, but it's possible.
