Burns & Gambo

  • Burns: My hunch on where Rolle ends up

    Nothing like a tweet from Chad Ochocinco to set my mind at ease. Alright, I’m mostly kidding. Mostly. I’ve got confidence (not a lot but enough) that the Cardinals are going to bring back their soon-to-be-free-agent safety Antrel Rolle. A feeling that was validated (not a full-on validation but enough of one) by the Bengals […]
  • Burns: What’s in a name?

    The greens are perfectly manicured, the golfers tuned up, the kegs on ice. The PGA Tour is back and golf has our full attention. So now is a perfect time to address the elephant in the room. No, not Tiger. He’s the snake in the room. I’m talking about the name. The Waste Management Phoenix […]
  • Gambo: What now for Amare, Suns?

    The trade deadline passed without the Phoenix Suns making a deal. The Suns did not get, nor were they making calls, so Amare Stoudemire remains a Sun. The Suns had two teams vying for Stoudemire’s services, Miami and Cleveland, and were willing to deal their All-Star center if they could have received a “home run” […]
  • Burns: Closing the book on an era

    I remember the day like it was yesterday. June 2, 2005. The 620 Sportsline was live, on-location from some high-end pizza place in North Scottsdale. It was the night after the Spurs eliminated the Phoenix Suns from the NBA’s Western Conference Finals and I couldn’t have been in a better mood. Whatever disappointment I had […]
  • Gambo: Which deal do the Suns want?

    To deal or to deal. That is the question the Phoenix Suns are contemplating as the NBA trade deadline approaches on Thursday. To deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers or to deal with the Miami Heat. It is a foregone conclusion that the Suns have made the determination that trading Amare Stoudemire is in their best […]
  • Burns: Aiming for Frasier

    As far as finales go, I’m pretty sure where Tuesday night’s last ever 620 Sportsline ranks. It wasn’t sad and sappy like MASH. This wasn’t Hawkeye Pierce flying away in a helicopter while BJ Honnicutt drives away on the motorcycle with the words GOODBYE spelled out with rocks. It wasn’t confusing like The Soprano’s. I […]
  • Burns: Couldn’t have done it without him

    Take all the success the Cardinals have had over the last couple of years. The Super Bowl, the division titles, the newfound national respect. Now imagine it as a giant pie (apple of course). How big is Kurt Warner’s slice? How much of it was he directly and personally responsible for? The knee jerk reaction […]
  • Gambo: Time for the Suns to shake things up

    Another game, another loss for the Phoenix Suns. A season that started with so much promise after an improbable 14-3 start is crashing down upon us and you get the feeling the Suns have fallen and the can’t get up. Just how a team could get off to such a great start and then forget […]
  • Burns: Not what Leinart said but how he said it

    Do you believe in body language? In the idea that it’s not what you say, but how you say it? In the subtle hints and clues that you can pluck from tone, posture, pauses, inflection and the like? I do. Big time. Maybe I’m an old fashioned radio geek, but, part of my job is […]
  • Gambo: Lopez making an impact

    It’s only four games so we don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves. But it’s hard not to notice the impact that Robin Lopez has had on the Phoenix Suns since he has been getting extended minutes. In the last four games Lopez has shot 27-for-38 from the field for 64 points, grabbed […]
  • Burns: Warner’s future starts important offseason

    The only battle left to win is the one inside the heart, mind and soul of #13. The Cardinals glorious (more on that in a moment) 2009 season came to a splintering halt Saturday in New Orleans. You can ruminate on the injuries and the collective empty gas tank to your heart’s desire; when you […]
  • Saints are vulnerable, Cards pull one out

    This is not another attempt to bash the credibility of Cris Collinsworth. Cardinals fans took the belt to the NBC announcer so many times last year that the poor guy can barely go on talk radio in Phoenix without a mandatory upfront apology. With his the-Cardinals-are-the-worst-team-to-make-the-playoffs speech, Collinsworth (who is actually one of my favorite […]
  • Gambo: D-backs made great move in getting LaRoche

    Of all the moves the Arizona Diamondbacks have made this offseason, none have made as much sense as the one that came down today with the announcement of the signing of Adam LaRoche to a one-year contract with a mutual option for a second season. The Diamondbacks have been desperate for a real first baseman […]
  • Whisenhunt owes Carroll a thank you

    Now that the Pete Carroll hiring in Seattle is official it’s time for Ken Whisenhunt to get to the nearest Hallmark store and purchase that $4 ‘Thank You’ card. Because no one in the NFL will benefit more from Carroll’s hiring than Whisenhunt himself. Carroll signed a 5-year contract for a mind boggling $33 million […]
  • Gambo: McGwire deserves nothing from us

    So Mark McGwire told us all what we already knew – that he cheated and took steroids during his playing career. So what now? It doesn’t change anything. He is not suddenly off the hook. Maybe it’s good for his conscience that he came clean and he can now live with himself. But for me […]
