_______________________________________

Back when horsepower was provided by horses.

Emanating from the Morgan Athletic Association in 1899, the team came by way of its evolving name(s) organically. Morgan was a street name, as was Racine -- in Chicago.

The nickname was less about a songbird and more about hue. The acquisition of used uniforms bearing cardinal red is the folklore. Or perhaps a melding with another athletic club, named Cardinals?

Regardless, this is the oldest professional football team, with family ownership dating back ninety years. The team was 'western' as the league went a hundred years ago and remains so today, gravitating to Arizona in 1988.
