For decades many have wondered, loudly, why Jim Hart, perhaps the best player and most assuredly the best quarterback in the franchises history pre-Arizona.

Well, after years of wondering, the Cardinals fans can stop and just enjoy the Cardinals righting the wrong.

From the team:

The Ring of Honor is reserved for those who have made the most extraordinary contributions to the Cardinals organization and Jim Hart is absolutely in that category,” said Cardinals President MICHAEL BIDWILL. “When you look back at his career, two things really jump out: excellence and longevity. He is our franchise’s career leader in nearly every passing category which is commendable in its own right. But an undrafted quarterback going on to play 18 seasons and 199 games may be even more remarkable and unlikely to ever be duplicated. The impact he had on the Cardinals was undeniable and we are thrilled that he will have this permanent place of honor within our franchise.”

The team has not decided on an induction date, but when we know, we will share that.
