I’m reading in national articles that the Suns turned down the trade for James Harden. It says they wanted a “substantial player” and two future first round picks. Is this true? And, if so why? You have a franchise superstar who wants to play here, who can be your championship cornerstone. It doesn’t make sense.

Thanks,
Mike

Sorry, Mike. I don’t understand your question.

The Suns couldn’t compete with the package Houston offered. It wasn’t until recently that the Suns started stockpiling draft picks. Houston traded away other teams’ draft picks. They were ready.

I’m glad the Suns have changed philosophies and focused their efforts on the draft. Hopefully they can stockpile picks and be more prepared the next time there’s an opportunity.


Why is it on pass protection the linemen stand up and retreat, as opposed to run plays where they attack the defensive line?

Might be good question for Wolf.

I’d be glad to answer that for you if you’d like.


Deuce Lutui is doing a great job for 49ers. Where was the poor coaching???

Bert

Using the word “great” means you’re misguided on football knowledge or bitter towards the Cardinals. He’s doing OK.

Bert, if I’m your boss and I give you two years to do what I tell you to do and you don’t do it, why shouldn’t I fire you?

If you take that lesson and realize your career is on the fritz then re-focus your life, why should I get blamed for your productivity with my competitor? You weren’t getting the job done so I let you go.


Doug,

Please take the team and coaches Russ Grimm and Ken Whisenhunt to task for that awful offensive line. I know that you will be honest in your views of the game and Cardinals as a whole.

As I’ve learned in this business, people love to scream they want the truth, but that’s a lie (kind of a funny irony).

What people really want is for someone in the media to vehemently agree with them. I’m sure you’re not this big of an idiot and anti-American but this is what you’re saying: “AGREE WITH ME OR YOU’RE A LIAR.”

I will not take Whiz to task for the awful offensive line. I will not take Grimm to task for the offensive line. I’ll leave that for the people that have no idea what they’re talking about.

If someone ever asks my opinion of what’s wrong with the offensive line, I’ll be glad to tell them.


Enjoy Corvallis this weekend. If you like pizza go to Woods Stock on Circle Drive. If you want some good Micro Brews, and I know you do, go to McMenamins on Monroe and Third Street. We have some great beers in the Pacific Northwest.

Oh! Be safe and Go Beavs

Rob

Thanks, but I didn’t have the time to really enjoy it.

I don’t want to miss Friday’s show, so I rarely fly with the team since they leave Friday at lunch time. I landed, drove to Corvallis, broadcasted, spent four hours in a hotel and I’m answering your e-mail while on the commercial flight to Phoenix.

I will tell you something you’ll love. Every time we play Oregon, I’m amazed by the ignorance, drunkenness, arrogance and rudeness of their fans and the people around Eugene. Every time we play Oregon State, I wonder when we get to go back. Very good people in Corvallis. Good luck in the Civil War. I’m rooting for you.
