I think you should use a better font. Conrad has a bunch you can choose from, and they work great. I'd take a look if I were you.

Now that these 4 teams have been absorbed into the NFL, it's time to see the ripple effect it has on the league.

 

With the Outlaws in Arizona, where do the Cardinals move?

Where does Art move the Browns, or does he?

Where do the Oilers go?

 

These questions and more will be answered.

Prior to Super Bowl XXI the NFL League Offices made an announcement regarding division realignment and scheduling.

 

With the addition of 4 teams into the divisions that were in place, it caused a very unbalanced schedule. With two divisions with six teams, an out-of-division schedule was minimal to only 6 games. The clubs were then realigned into eight divisions, four teams in each. In creating the new divisions, the league tried to maintain the historical rivalries from the old alignment, while at the same time attempting to organize the teams geographically. 

 

The major changes were:

  • The Indianapolis Colts, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Memphis Showboats and the Houston Oilers were placed into the newly formed AFC Midwest.
  • The Atlanta Falcons, the Birmingham Stallions, the New Orleans Saints, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were placed into the newly formed NFC Southeast.
  • The Baltimore Stars moved from the AFC East to the AFC Central.
  • The Saint Louis Cardinals moved from the NFC East to the NFC West.

NFC Central

NFC West

San Francisco 49ers

 

The league also introduced a new eight-year scheduling rotation designed so that all teams will play each other at least twice during those eight years, and will play in every other team's stadium at least once. Under the new scheduling formula, only two of a team's games each season are based on the previous year's record, down from four under the previous system. All teams play four interconference games.

 

The playoff format was also modified: four division winners and two wild cards from each conference now advance to the playoffs, instead of three division winners and two wild cards. In each conference, the division winners are now seeded 1 through 4, and the wild cards are seeded 5 and 6.

The Saint Louis Cardinals ownership will be moving the franchise to Jacksonville for the 1988 season. The team front office is running a nickname contest.

The Cardinals should keep their name. I feel as if that name is too iconic to change, because it's been used since the 1920s.

I'd keep'em the Cardinals but I'd call them either the Florida/Jacksonville Mockingbirds (Florida state bird) or the Jacksonville Panthers (Obvious references to Florida) Jaguars in my opinion works if they called the Florida Jaguars

Again, I think they should keep the name Cardinals, but I would suggest Jacksonville/Florida Manatees or Jacksonville/Florida Pythons. You could do some interesting uniforms with Florida Flamingoes (a suggested name for the Marlins of baseball that was never used) as well.
