Chicago's Mayor Wants 2 NFL Teams

by Matt Snyder

With the Cardinals heading to the Super Bowl -- a team who originally played in Chicago, including a stint in the old Comiskey Park -- Chicago Mayor Richard Daley decided to use it as an opportunity to push for a second NFL franchise.

The Cardinals moved to St. Louis in 1960, and then again to Phoenix in 1988. Their name was changed to the Arizona Cardinals in 1994. Since 1960, Chicago has maintained it's one franchise, the Bears. Since the city supports two baseball teams well, Daley contends it could handle a second football team.
