- - - - - No surprise. After getting their first win in ten tries, the Cardinals are content to just let the remainder of the season go by. Well out of the playoff race, and now unable to even crawl out of last place in the NFC West, Arizona sputtered to another offensive catastrophe, losing at home to the Bears 28-13.
- - - - - Two defensive touchdowns by the Bears essentially put the game out of reach early in the second half, but, really, who are we kidding? Neither of those scores changed the final outcome as the Cardinals' only trip into the endzone came on a blocked field goal return in the final two minutes.
- - - - - I have been watching the Cardinals since the mid-1980s and never before have I felt so bored sitting in a sports bar watching football on Sunday. Sure, there is nothing on the line for Arizona, but that has been true most seasons throughout the past 30 years. Something is different, and the only thing keeping them from being utterly unwatchable is that they haven't pulled out those red-on-red uniforms like they're waiting for Santa Claus to bring them their lump of coal.
SEVENTEENTH SEASON UNDERWAY
- - - - - As you've probably already noticed, "The Cardinal's" Nest, the Internet's longest-running website dedicated to the Arizona Cardinals, has
undergone a few changes over the years as we embark on our 17th season. This newer setup will hopefully make it easier for you, the fans, to navigate
these pages. After all, isn't life already hard enough being a Cardinals fan?
"THE CARDINALS ARE CHARGING"
"The Cardinals Are Charging" was written for both the St. Louis Baseball and Football Cardinals on June 29, 1960. Although the baseball team stopped using the march several years later, the fight song can still be heard at all home football games for the now Arizona Cardinals. The music and words were composed by songwriters Irving Bibo (1889-1962) and Larry Kent. Originally, the lyrics had "all St. Louis" in place of "Arizona" (Line 7), and "St. Louis" instead of "Arizona" (Line 8). Download from the following versions: Real Audio, and MIDI.
