The Cardinals won't win because of the "curse of the Pottsville Maroons". The Maroons defeated the Chicago Cardinals in 1925 to win the NFL Championship. They were later disqualified because they violated the teritorial rights of the Frankford YellowJackets (now the Phila. Eagles). The title was awarded to the Cardinals. There is said that a curse was placed on the Cardials ever since. Efforts to reinstate the championship to the Maroons has been blocked by the Cardinals owners, the Bidwill family. In their history, they have only one 2 championships (1925 and 1947) and they are reluctant to share a championship they did not win. The irony is that they may face 2 Pennsylvania teams on the road to the Super Bowl. Sources: Wikipedia and the book "Breaker Boys".
