With the Phoenix Suns, we're all looking for THE reason
Dave Burns | January 29, 2014 11:22 amWe're all looking for THE reason. As if there is just one. As if you can narrow down exactly why the Suns bear no resemblance to the Sherman Tank the entire NBA expected this season. Is it Jeff...

Dave Burns | January 14, 2014 12:33 pmHere's wishing Ken Whisenhunt well. And I don't mean that in a false, fakey, good-luck-go-get-em kind of way. It's a genuine desire to see him succeed in his second go-around as a head coach, and...

Dave Burns | December 16, 2013 11:51 amIt was over, right? So much so that I left the camp in front of my TV where I had just watched the Cardinals position themselves to easily dispatch the Titans. Soon their record would be 9-5. It was...

Carson Palmer's resurgence: Is it magic or fact?
Dave Burns | November 19, 2013 11:09 amMaybe I'm just in a Pearl Jam state of mind with the concert on Tuesday trying to equate one of their songs to the recent play of Carson Palmer. One of my favorite lines from a song that I just know...
The 'Same Old Cardinals' but in a good way
Dave Burns | November 10, 2013 8:21 pmIn some ways this game was like finding an old shirt you thought you had donated to Goodwill. It feels new again. Andre Roberts. Remember him? After five catches for 72 yards a crucial touchdown late...
