About The Arizona Cardinals
The Arizona Cardinals has the proud distinction of being known as the oldest and longest running franchise in the NFL. They were founded in 1898. The team began their long career as a group of men that got together to play football in a predominantly Irish neighborhood in Chicago and when purchased by Chris O’Brian they started playing in Normal Field hence the first name change was made to the Normals.
From the Morgan Athletic Club to the Normals was the first of many name changes, after the Normals they became the Racine Cardinals until a team from Racine Wisconsin joined the NFL which prompted the name change to Chicago Cardinals then to St. Louis Cardinals then to Phoenix Cardinals and then to the present name Arizona Cardinals.
The cities may have changed but the nickname Cardinals has endured the time. The nickname was initiated in 1901 when Chris O’ Brian bought used uniforms from the University of Chicago, the color was supposed to be maroon but they were so faded Chris said, “that’s not maroon, it’s Cardinal red.” The nickname was created.
Although the Cardinals have a couple of NFL Championships under their belt, they have never won a Super Bowl.
However, just because you haven’t won a Super Bowl doesn’t mean that you don’t have excellent players. The Cardinals have produced some of the NFL’s finest players like John “Paddy” Driscoll who played from 1920 to 1925 as Quarter Back and Punter for a whopping $300.00 per game which back in the 1920’s. Including “Paddy”, the Cardinals are responsible for putting fourteen players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Even today as they struggle to become a superior team they are still producing quality players like John Navarre who made his debut in 2004 against the Detroit Lions. The 2006 season looks promising with the draft of 2004 Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart, a promising Quarter Back from the University of Southern California.
With the inaugural opening of their new stadium and having already sold out five percent of the stadium to season ticket holders, the fans are excited to get the season going. The new stadium will occupy approximately twenty-five acres and during its construction it created over three thousand jobs and over four hundred million in economic benefits for Arizona.
The natural grass is approximately ninety-four thousands square feet (2 acres) on is on a twelve million pound roll out tray that will take forty-five minutes to move. This is a first in North America.
