Burns & Gambo

  • Gambo: Can the Cardinals recover in time for Sat?

    As fun and exciting as Sunday’s game at University of Phoenix Stadium was the Cardinals go into this week of practice with several questions. How will they react with a short week of practice? Can they address their secondary issues in time to face a potent New Orleans offense? Will Anquan Boldin be able to […]
  • Burns: So much love and hate and then love again

    To borrow a line from Cards play-by-play man Dave Pasch, the Cards 51-45 playoff win over the Packers was……. Epic. By the third quarter the game had the same feel as the Cardinals NFC Championship victory last year over the Eagles. By the time much-maligned defensive back Michael Adams forced a fumble by Aaron Rodgers […]
  • Gambo: What do the Suns do now?

    The brutal 16-game December stretch that the Phoenix Suns brass was going to use as its true gauge to determine how good this team is officially ended Wednesday night. The Suns went 7-9 during the month, finishing with quality wins over the defending world champion Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics. They had a nice […]
  • Gambo: Coyotes starting to gain some attention

    Not a bad year that we have going on for sports here in the Valley right now. The Cardinals are headed back to the playoffs to defend their NFC Championship. The Suns have been better than expected and coming off a huge win over the Lakers Monday night and appear to be a solid playoff […]
  • Burns: What an absolute disaster

    The Cards loss to the Niners by the numbers: 7—Turnovers by the Cardinals 10—Penalties by the Cardinals 11—First downs by the Cardinals 167—Rushing Yards by Frank Gore 0—chance to win when you add up all the numbers listed above Millions and Millions—Football fans who are feeling like the Cardinals just plain fooled them last week […]
  • Burns: Breaking down the trade with pros and cons

    You don’t need a GPS to know that sitting on a fence is not the proper location for hosting a sports talk radio show. But that’s right where I am on this Max Scherzer/Edwin Jackson, D-backs/Tigers/Yankees three way trade that is on the table. The D-backs would acquire Tigers starting pitcher Edwin Jackson and Yankees […]
  • Burns: I did not see this coming

    I love movies with surprise endings. I’m just arrogant enough to think that I’m as smart as the guys who made the thing and I can figure it out before they figure it out for me (I’m not that smart – I just think I am). The thing about them is that the clues are […]
  • Burns: A tiger of similar stripes

    Call me a cynic. Maybe I’ve been covering professional athletes too long. But there is not one shred of me that is surprised about Tiger Woods. The voicemails, the cover stories, the photos, the sheer volume of women that are now being linked to the world’s number one golfer. I don’t care how perfect the […]
  • Gambo: The Wildcats come up short of smelling roses

    There are certainly no moral victories for the Arizona Wildcats this season. The door was wide open for them to win the Pac-10 championship and head to their first Rose Bowl thanks to a down year by USC. But Saturday’s devastating loss to Oregon — a game in which they led 24-14 in the fourth […]
  • Burns: The Cardinals make me giddy

    At times it was sleepy. At times it was undisciplined. At times it was alarming. And in the end it felt more like relief than a victory. But the one thing, the main thing, I take away from the Cardinals 31-20 win over the Seahawks on Sunday is a sense of…….giddiness. Kind of like that […]
  • Burns: Predictably unpredictable

    The Arizona Cardinals unpredictability have become….so predictable. In a season filled with plot twists, what’s one more? The unexpected is to be expected after watching the Cardinals demolish the Bears 41-21. 4-0 on the road, 1-3 at home. Five picks last week for Kurt Warner, five touchdown passes this week. Shock the world by beating […]
  • Burns: You get what you pay for

    The Yankees were the best team in baseball this year. Well….you know what they say. You get what you pay for. Call it like it is, the Yankees paid for a World Series by shelling out a half billion dollars in the offseason. What’s funny, in a your-car-is-stuck-in-the-mud kind of way is that ever since […]
  • Burns: You just can’t trust the Cardinals

    One of my favorite lines from one of my favorite movies: “It seems to me that if there was any logic to our language, trust would be a four letter word.” Uttered by Tom Cruise’s character Joel in “Risky Business”, that quote is right up there with the more famous line in the movie (“Sometimes, […]
  • Gambo: Collinsworth apologizes

    It was just about 10 months ago when NFL analyst Chris Collinsworth said that the Arizona Cardinals were the “worst playoff team of all time.” We’ll it’s almost a year later and Collinsworth has issued his apology. Today, as a guest on Gambo and Ash, Sports 620 KTAR Phoenix, Collinsworth was asked if he has […]
  • Gambo: Phillies no match for Yankees

    Pedro Martinez, Cole Hamels, Joe Blanton? Are you kidding me? Memo to the Philadelphia Phillies – this isn’t the Tampa Bay Rays you are playing in the World Series. Just how people are picking the Phillies to win this series when after Cliff Lee they are sending that collection of junk to the mound is […]
