TAMPA, Fla. -- Cardinals president Michael Bidwill heard plenty at Super Bowl XLIII media day about the losing tradition his family's franchise escaped only recently.

Winning isn't all that new to him, however.

A former prosecuting attorney, Bidwill won about 90 percent of his cases before taking an active role in the family business.

The case Arizona is making as a respectable NFL franchise was one few thought Bidwill could make beyond a reasonable doubt -- until now.
