The quarterback of the '90s should be about 6-foot-4, 200 pounds, like Randall Cunningham. He should be able to throw more than 3,000 yards, like Cunningham. He should be a scrambler, too, someone who runs out of trouble, like Cunningham. And if he happens to be black, like Cunningham, it won't matter. Football is becoming color blind about its quarterbacks, because of people like Philadelphia's Randall Cunningham. It wasn't always that way.

Randy the Dandy dates Whitney Houston. Appears on Arsenio Hall. Shows off his $1.4 million mansion to Robin Leach on "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous." Randall the Sensational throws 95-yard touchdown passes. Leaps tall buildings at the goal line. Scrambles from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh and back in one play. Randall the Quarterback?

The Rams plop into today's wild-card playoff round with all the grace of a face-first mudslide. They took a season to the ledge--coming one, last-second Steve Grogan completion from elimination--so why not take the postseason there, too? You don't dig into the vaults at NFL Films searching for ways to describe the Rams, you go to amusement parks. "Out of control," is the way Coach John Robinson puts it. And he's in charge.

Randall Cunningham is a good 6-feet 4-inches tall. He is wiry, slim-hipped and neatly packed. He isn't skinny, but there's no way he weighs 200 pounds. Somebody's basketball prodigy for sure? Nope. Guessed wrong. This is Randall Cunningham, quarterback, the man who has succeeded the injured Ron Jaworski as the field leader of the Philadelphia Eagles. A second-year pro, Cunningham, 23, has opened a dandy lead in this year's race for the club's coveted triple crown.

Political friends and foes alike had a similar reaction Tuesday to Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham's abrupt resignation and guilty plea to bribery and tax evasion: shock, but not surprise.
