Originally founded in Chicago in 1898, the Cardinals are the oldest NFL organisation, as well as becoming the least successful having only won two championships but never winning the Super Bowl.
The Cardinals’ earned their nickname after owner Chris O’Brien received used faded red jersey’s from the University of Chicago Maroons Football team, which he described looked like “cardinal red”.
In the professional era, the Cardinals joined the American Professional Football Association, where they played under the name Racine Street Cardinals due to the street they were playing at in 1920. Two years later, the Cardinals changed their name to the Chicago Cardinals when they joined the NFL.
The Chicago era didn’t host the Cardinals too much success, although they did claim the 1925 and 1947 championships. But that was all the joy they got as performances started to wane and so too did the fan base, which caused the club to be close to bankruptcy. The then-owner Bill Bidwell decided to relocate the franchise to St Louis.
The Cardinals were based at St Louis from 1960-1987, and again it didn’t bring much joy as they made the playoffs just three times in 1974, 1975 and 1982, as they finished first in the National Football Conference in 1974 and 1975 winning 10 and 11 games.
However, they got undone by the Minnesota Vikings in the 1974 Divisional playoffs and again in 1975 where they faced the LA Rams in the Divisional playoff. In the 1982 season, having earned sixth spot in the National Conference with five wins, the Cardinals played the Green Bay Packers in the first round where once again they got knocked out.
By the late 80s, the Cardinals’ time in St Louis was up and Bidwell decided to make another move this time relocating the franchise to Phoenix, Arizona in 1988. The first season in Phoenix saw the Cardinals play under the name the ‘Phoenix Cardinals’ and by 1994 they changed it to Arizona Cardinals.
Their time in Arizona saw the most successful period in the franchise’s history, as they ended a 16-year hoodoo in the 1998 season which saw them return to the playoffs. That same year also broke a 51-year drought when they recorded their first-ever postseason win since 1947 when they defeated the Dallas Cowboys 20-7.
The 2000s brought even more joy as by 2008; they won the NFC championship game with a win over Philadelphia Eagles 32-25, which brought them to their maiden Super Bowl appearance. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be for the Cardinals as they lost the Super Bowl by four points going down to the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-23.
The next season they made the playoffs again as they held a 10-6 record and clinched the NFC West, but lost to the New Orleans Saints when they met at the Divisional playoffs. After a four year hiatus, the Cardinals made it back to the playoffs, but could only go as far as the wild card playoffs where they lost to the Carolina Panthers 27-16.
A year later the Cardinals came back even better as in the season they had a 13-3 record- their best since moving to Arizona, and made it all the way to the NFC Championship game, as they defeated Green Bay Packers in the first round.
However, once again the Cardinals were left undone in the Championship game as they were crushed by the Panthers 49-15. Since then the Cardinals have not reached the playoffs or any postseason games despite finishing second in the NFC West in 2016 with seven wins and third in 2017 with eight wins.
The last two years have been seasons to forget for the Cardinals as they have managed to win six games combined since the 2018 and 2019 seasons as they finished last in the NFC West standings.
If you are a fan of the Arizona Cardinals, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2020 / 2021 season. Do the Arizona Cardinals have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Arizona Cardinals:
After a disjointed career as a backup Quarterback in the NFL, Kliff Kingsbury began his NCAA head coaching career in 2013 at Texas Tech. In January of 2019, Kingsbury was signed to become the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals following a 35-40 career record at the collegiate level.
Kingsbury’s first act as head coach of the Cardinals was the ensuring the acquisition of quarterback Kyler Murray with the first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Having coached Case Keenum, Baker Mayfield and Patrick Mahomes, at the collegiate level, Kingsbury clearly has a great ability to coach and develop quarterbacks, making the partnership between Kingsbury and Murray a promising one.
In a tough NFC West division, the Cardinals posted a 5-10-1 record in Kingsbury’s debut season, however with a stronger looking offence in 2020, Kingsbury and the Cardinals should see improvement in the coming season.
Following a seven-year stint with the Houston Texans, Deandre Hopkins will be suiting up for the Arizona Cardinals in 2020. During Hopkins’ time in Houston, he made four Pro Bowl appearances, was selected to the All Pro First Team on three occasions, as well as bringing in a league lead 13 receiving touchdowns in the 2017 season.
The move to Arizona will allow Hopkins to work in tandem and learn from future Hall of Fame receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Although 36-year-old Fitzgerald is near the end of his career, the partnership with Hopkins will allow the defensive coverage to be split between the two star receivers.
This was as well as providing a second All Pro quality target for the Cardinals second year QB Kyler Murray. The Cardinals were the 16th ranked scoring team in 2019, a feat that they will be looking to improve upon with the addition of Deandre Hopkins.
Taken with the 36th pick in the 2017 NFL draft, Bishard “Budda” Baker has already had a resounding impact in Arizona throughout his first three seasons as a pro footballer. Baker’s impact in the league was immediate, posting 74 combined tackles (58 solo) and seven pass deflections in 16 games and seven starts, earning an invitation to the Pro Bowl and selection to the All Pro First Team in his rookie season.
After a solid 2018, Baker raised the bar again in 2019, and was named the Cardinals most improved player, after accumulating a career-best 147 combined tackles and league leading 104 solo tackles in 16 matches, earning his second Pro Bowl invitation.
At 24 years of age, Baker will be up for a contract extension at the end of the season, making 2020 another opportunity to show what he is worth. ‘Budda’ is quickly becoming one of the best free safeties in the league, and will be a key player in improving the 2019 Cardinals 28th ranked league defence.
Over the past two seasons, the Cardinals have finished last in the NFC West standings with a combined tally of six wins throughout that period so it’s no wonder there is little chance of even heading back to the postseason anytime soon. The Cardinals finished the 2019 season 9-5-2 against the spread and 4-4-0 at home, while away they were 5-1-2.
Over/under they finished 9-7-0 at home 5-3-0 when they were travelling side they went 4-4-0. After a tie to start their 2019 season with the Lions, they were valued at +27333 by September 11. Back-to-back-to-back wins over Cincinnati Bengals, Atlanta Hawks and New York Giants earned their odds to go to +14167 by October 21.
However, that soon changed when the Cardinals suffered a six-game losing streak from October 27 to December 8, which included two losses to the San Francisco 49ers, which meant their odds of becoming Super Bowl champions jumped to +75000 by November 26.
The Cardinals (as of early September) are 60-1 (CBS sports) to win the Super Bowl in 2021.
