My favorite football team.

I used to follow the Cardinals back when they were in St. Louis.  I became a fan because I also liked the baseball Cardinals.  Since they played in the NFC East I was able to watch them lose to all the top teams of the division on CBS.  I remember watching Neil Lomax, Roy Green, Stump Mitchell and Pat Tilly.  Lomax could have been a great quarterback if it wasn't for his injuries.  After years of posting consecutive losing seasons the Cards were able to make the playoff in 1998 only to get lose in the second round to the Minnesota Vikings. 

I was so happy to see Dennis Green come in and rebuild the team.  He signed Kurt Warner and Edgerrin James and drafted key players such as Larry Fitzgerald,  Darnell Dockett, Karlos Dansby, Deuce Lutui, Antrel Rolle, Eric Green and J.J. Arrington who play major parts in the team's 2008 run to the Super Bowl.
But after three losing seasons he was let go and replaced by Ken Wisenhunt who would give the team that extra punch they needed to overcome their losing attitude that has hung over the team for so many years.  I was surprised and shock to see how well the Cardinals played in 2008.  They were so close to winning the Super Bowl.  But in the end they realized the were the Cards and lost to a superior team the Pittsburgh Steelers.  But they proved that they belong in the top flite of NFL teams.

If someone asked you what the first professional football team in the United States was, which team would you guess first? Obviously, you would go for some of the usual suspects who seem to have been around forever: Green Bay? The Chicago Bears? Perhaps one of the old teams populating the NFC East and NFC North. And you would be wrong. Look to your left. By your left, I mean to the western United States, but not that far. East of California. South of Colorado. There you go - that right, the Arizona …

A part of me always likes to see the Cards perform well. They appear to be a decent organization that has scraped and clawed their way to some success over the years.

The oldest NFL franchise.  They currently play in the NFC West.

Founded in 1898 as the Morgan Athletic Club.

During the 1944 season because of WWII the Cardinals merged with the Pittsburgh Steelers because so many of their players were in the military,

NFC East in 1974 & 1975 and the NFL West in 1947 & 1948.

Named the Cardinals after their owner bought some used Football Jerseys from the University of Chicago.  The faded maroon color was dubbed cardinal red do the team decided to change it's name from the Normals to the Cardinals.
