Eye On Sports with Eric Williams:
Cunningham, as a young
star for the Philadelphia Eagles.Okay Eye On Sports readers, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m way too old to be ‘idol-worshipping’ any professional athlete like a wide-eyed teenager that is still hoping out some realistic hopes of making it in professional sports.
Cunningham and late son, Christian.However, having said that, I am officially going on record right now to say that former NFL quarterback and now, ordained minister, Randall Cunningham, is not only my official sports ‘hero’ but that he should be every young athlete’s role model, particularly young African-American boys that may be under the impression that one they’ve made it to the pros, life will suddenly become easier.Well, I am encouraging all young athletes – and their parents … (hell, let me just make that everyone) … to see ESPN’s E:60ultra-touching special on Cunningham, now the pastor of Remnant Ministires in Las Vegas.
Cunningham is now the pastor
of Remnant Ministries in Las Vegas.Without giving too much of the video away, all I’m going to say is that Cunningham’s testimony, particularly that involving the recent death of his two-year old son Christian, is as powerful as anything I’ve ever witnessed and will undoubtedly help some folks think more about the ‘big picture’ than how much bling they’ve got and how much ‘paper’ they’re going to make.Oh, yeah, I am now, officially, a huge Randall Cunningham fan – and I will be until the day I hit the dirt!
What are your thoughts on Randall Cunningham? Sound off in the comments section and have a great, sports-filled day!

By all the **** talking, you would think that Casey Matthews and Nate Allen played for a hated rival and not our...
Plaxico Burress says the Jets want him back, but the veteran receiver has his eyes on a team further south.
In an interview with a Philadelphia radio station Tuesday, Burress made it clear he would love to play for the Eagles.
"Nothing else would make me happier," Burress told 97.5 The Fanatic. "Obviously, coming to Philadelphia and instituting myself to the offense...
The younger brother of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has been sentenced to a 10-day jail term on a contempt of court charge.

The younger brother of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has been sentenced to a 10-day jail term on a contempt of court charge. Marcus Vick, a former football star at Virginia Tech, was sentenced Thursday. The charge stems from his failure to appear at two court dates for a charge of driving on a suspended license.
Embattled NFL receiver Plaxico Burress appeared on 97.5 The Fanatic on Tuesday and stated, “nothing else would make me happier” than joining the Eagles. Buress said the Eagles had “a lot” of interest in him last year. Although not enough to out-spend the New York Jets apparently.
It appears the former Michigan State star would like to trade in last year’s green-and-white...
