  • Burns: The Jay Feely Show in Glendale on Sunday

    To sit here and say I knew it was coming would be a lie. But a little birdie told me weeks ago that the Cardinals were itching to bust out a Jay Feely fake field goal. That little birdie….was Jay Feely. So I sat on that little nugget, as you have to, and waited and […]
  • Towers isn’t about winning the press conference

  • Burns: Consternation and confusion at quarterback

    Seeing that the roof was open at University of Phoenix stadium, I couldn’t help but to think of an old Seinfeld episode. Jerry is dating a woman whose appearance changes based on the lighting. Sometimes hideous, sometimes gorgeous, he can’t figure his two-faced date out. I was hoping that the open roof and the bright […]

  • Burns: It can’t get worse for the Cardinals

    Paul Calvisi is wrong. My co-host on Sports Interactive likes to say “it can always get worse.” Against their division rival, in a game that both teams have pointed to since August, on the second biggest stage in the sport, the Arizona Cardinals laid down and had their tummies scratched. I defy anyone to tell […]
  • Green: Welcome back, Same Old Cardinals

    Oh hey there, it’s, umm, nice to see you. Sorry I was so quick to let you go, but I really thought I was finally ready to move on. After all, I felt after 16 years things had run their course with us. We would both be better off if we parted ways. You see, […]

  • Green: Cardinals are becoming irrelevant again

    The Arizona Cardinals are on the precipice of a dangerous situation. No, last place is not what I’m talking about. Sure, being in the basement of the worst division in football is quite sad, but the fate that awaits the Big Red is much, much worse. Irrelevance is one of, if not the, worst things […]
  • Burns: Tomorrow is all that matters for Cardinals

    On Sunday the Cardinals crossed a threshold. Not the pain threshold, goodness knows they crossed that one a long time ago. No, they passed what I’ll call the “tomorrow” threshold. Today no longer matters; tomorrow is all that counts. It relegates the rest of the 2010 season to one giant audition. Who checks out? Who […]
  • Burns: Cardinals trip over their own feet

    Well that just about takes care of that…..doesn’t it?

Sunday, both gave out and the Cards collapsed in a heap. In a game that […]
  • Green: Clock is ticking for Whisenhunt, Cardinals

    The Cardinals’ slogan, “We do this together,” has been around since the 2008 season.

Sunday afternoon the Cardinals had a chance to turn their season […]
  • Green: It’s foolish not to consider trading Nash

    “Why would we trade him, I don’t understand that,” Suns coach Alvin Gentry said. “That’s not anything that’s been discussed here.” Wednesday the Suns, responding to the sudden rumors that Steve Nash was on the trade block, essentially said it’s something they would never even consider.
