The Arizona Cardinals have seen far more fond memories than their brethren did back in Chicago or St. Louis.

And while the Chicago Cardinals have the 1947 NFL Championship to brag about and the 1925 Championship (with an asterisk beside it), they did little between the 1948 and 1997 seasons, winning just a handful of NFC East Championships and zero playoff games.

Keep reading and you will relive some dynamic times. Starting with a memory that nearly brought the franchise its first championship in 60-plus seasons.
