Admit it -- if you've been an NFL fan long enough, you know enough about the history of the Chicago/St. Louis/Phoenix/Arizona Cardinals to wonder if the Bidwills, the longtime el-cheapo owners of the franchise, were going to spit the bit and tank the franchise's future by low-balling Kurt Warner and ...
