  • Burns: Not the prettiest but it was a win on the road

    On Sunday my daughter celebrated a birthday. Six years from right now she’ll want, or maybe more appropriately, expect a car. If the grades are great, she is tattoo-free and she’s dating a boy from my pre-approved list….she’ll get one. But I better not hear any complaints about the color, make or model. Don’t like […]
  • Green: Where are your expectations?

    Last year as the Cardinals were set to open the season nothing but excitement and optimism was in the air. The team was coming off a trip to the Super Bowl and returned largely the same group of players who took them there. We all knew the Cardinals would win the NFC West – that […]
  • Burns: It’s not what you thought….and that’s a good thing

    3:45 press conference? Did he get traded? Did he get cut? Did the Arizona Cardinals just pull the trigger on the Matt Leinart era? You should have seen the starched shirts spring into action on Wednesday here at Sports 620 KTAR. Alert the reporters, have the web team standing by, deploy the talk show hosts, […]
  • Green: Careful, Whiz

    Careful, Whiz. Matt Leinart’s days as an Arizona Cardinal appear to be numbered. Though not officially benched for Derek Anderson, the language from both Leinart and head coach Ken Whisenhunt appear to lean in that direction. While I may disagree with the decision, as I wrote last week I trust Whisenhunt and will thereby support […]
  • Paulie Pigskin Report: QB question a matter of taste

    So far, the Cards QB position is sort of like the combo plate at Jack’s BBQ. (Hey, Paulie Honky Tonk should know, I’m already a regular here in Nashville, where they yell my name out upon entry like Norm in “Cheers.”) What have we been told since grade school? “Son, life is about choices.” Exactly. […]
  • Burns: No Warner to save the day

    The most significant development in the Cardinals search for their 2010 starting quarterback came not from anything Matt Leinart or Derek Anderson did on the field. It came from what the 2009 quarterback, Kurt Warner, tweeted off of the field: @kurt13warner OK, y’all… I am watching game… I am not coming back… and I would […]
  • Green: I trust Ken Whisenhunt and you should too

    There has been enough talk about the Cardinals and their supposed shortcomings to last, I don’t know, at least the rest of the preseason. From the loss of key personnel to the iffy QB situation, analysts and “experts” have lined up to take their shots at the team that nobody wanted to buy into even […]
  • Burns: Does Leinart have the moxie?

    Wednesday was “staples” day at Camp Cardinals. In the morning the team partook in a Ken Whisenhunt training camp staple; ditching practice and going to the movies. In the afternoon the media partook in a training camp staple; trying to figure out if Matt Leinart has the moxie to be the next quarterback of the […]
  • Paulie Pigskin Report: Washington turns heads in first action

    We already knew he could sing. Now, we know he can play. During the first week of Camp Cardinals, Darryl Washington proved he could carry a tune, both in the dining hall and with Doug & Wolf on Sports 620 KTAR. (As Adrian Wilson told us on the Big Red Rage: “he can really sing, […]
  • Green: Who is steering the S.S. Diamondbacks?

    A ship without a captain will run aground, and a team without a general manager will at best run in circles. With the trade deadline looming, the Arizona Diamondbacks don’t seem to have the one guy who is ready and capable of guiding them through the perilous waters that lie ahead in the coming days. […]
  • Burns: Iffy on the agent to front office move

    The logic seems pretty sound as I get popcorn butter all over my shirt. Follow me here: The movie “Transformers” was awful. The sequel “Transformers 2” was equally as sucky. So I feel good…..rather, I feel ultra-confident in predicting that “Transformers 3” will be just as loud, just as obnoxious and just as unwatchable as […]
  • Burns: Steinbrenner always committed to winning

    In trying to come up with the words to describe the life and times of George Steinbrenner, all roads circle back to one name. Jerry Colangelo. Why do we love Jerry? Why do we hold him in such esteem? Why are other Phoenix sports owners (past and present) always held to the “Jerry” standard? Colangelo […]
  • Burns: All-time top sports narcissists

    I’m hoping that by the time you peruse this blog someone will have broken the story about LeBron James and let all the air out of this bloated exercise in self-indulgence tonight on ESPN. Tell me where he’s playing before he gets the chance to tell me where he’s playing. Spoil the party. Ruin the […]
  • Green: Suns heading for basketball purgatory

    The Suns are about to embark on a serious rebuilding process, one that could be completed much quicker if the organization knew how to do it. But, I’m afraid, even if they did know how to go about the rebuilding of Planet Orange, there would be an unwillingness to actually do what it takes. Let’s […]
  • Burns: Amar’e & D’Antoni = Made for each other

    I want to hold it against Amar’e Stoudemire (not going to miss that apostrophe…not one bit) for taking a max deal instead of the Suns final offer. But I would be lying if I told you I’d do any different. And spare me the sanctimonious speech about taking less to win a title. You’d go […]
