If Randall Cunningham is depressed about his demotion to backup status, the Eagles' veteran quarterback didn't show it last night during the taping of his weekly television show. Before taping the show at the WCAU-TV (Channel 10) studios, a relaxed Cunningham joked with members of the audience. When the show began, however, a more serious Cunningham said he probably should undergo a football-personality makeover. Responding to timely questions from co-host Ron Burke, Cunningham said he needs "more fire.

When Randall Cunningham makes his return to Philadelphia on Sunday, it will be as the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. Cowboys coach Dave Campo made the announcement yesterday after Troy Aikman, who has pain in his lower back, could not practice for a second consecutive day. Cunningham has been taking most of the snaps in practice this week. Most of the Eagles wouldn't say it, instead smiling at the thought, but they would have loved to have gotten another crack at Aikman, whom they sacked four times in a little more than a quarter during the season opener.

Sunday is the first day of the rest of the Eagles' life. Or something like that. They are 3-7 and going nowhere. They have six games to play, the first of which is Sunday at Veterans Stadium against the Detroit Lions (1 p.m., no local television). They have six games to show all kinds of things, and attempt to answer all kinds of questions, such as: Can Randall Cunningham sustain the development he has exhibited in several cameo appearances this season, and can the Eagles' otherwise-moribund offense show some life under the new quarterback with the strong arm and the quick feet?

Ron Johnson is the first to humbly admit that he is no Mike Quick. Which is true. But, Quicklike or not, Johnson has been there, in Quick's place. He is catching clutch passes, and yesterday, scoring touchdowns. Two of them. On four catches. The acrobatic, ESP-with-Randall Cunningham kind. The Quick kind. "Boy, oh boy, Johnson," Cunningham said when asked about Johnson's 66- yard performance. "He's a big-play guy. I wish I could get the ball to him more. "I think when you play on that side, a little bit of the Mike Quick syndrome sort of sticks in your body and you start making things happen.

U.S. District Judge Anthony J. Scirica yesterday refused to block a Judicial Inquiry and Review Board investigation into whether Common Pleas Court Judge Mary Rose Fante Cunningham violated judicial canons by accepting $300 in cash in 1985 from Roofers Union officials. Scirica refused to consider Cunningham's claim that the state inquiry-board system violated her due process rights, ruling that Cunningham could not turn to the federal courts until she first had allowed the state courts to rule on her concerns.

Supporters of Media Borough Councilman James Cunningham jammed the council chamber last week to protest the elimination of three water company positions, including one held by Cunningham. The Democratic-controlled council voted last month to eliminate the three positions, saying the cuts were necessary to keep the company solvent. Cunningham, the council's sole Republican and a water company supervisor, charged that the cuts were a politically motivated effort to force him from his job. At the Thursday council meeting, Republican precinct leader Sally Lees protested the job eliminations.

For Randall Cunningham, it was the fulfillment of a dream. For Keith Jackson, it was the fulfillment of a promise. For Reggie White, it was a symbol of the promise the Eagles dream to fulfill. Yesterday, all three were named starters for the NFC team in the Pro Bowl. Only the Vikings (nine overall selections, six starters), the 49ers (six, three) and the Rams (five, three) placed more players on the conference squad. Even though wide receiver Mike Quick failed to be selected after five consecutive Pro Bowl appearances, this still represents the most players the Eagles have placed on the team since the 1982 Pro Bowl, when five made it. "We're happy that these young men were selected as starters," coach Buddy Ryan said.

Load up the bulletin boards, let the bawdy head coaches roar. This here game coming up this Sunday in Denver is a big-time matchup, between two of the most exciting quarterbacks to play football in this era. The Eagles' Randall Cunningham vs. the Broncos' John Elway, a hype dream. The perfect matchup for Eagles coach Buddy Ryan, who earlier this week just happened to imply that Cunningham now was better than Elway. So, John, just how do you feel about those Ryan implications?

The Jim Cunningham era has come to an end on the Media Borough Council, but not without a last harangue. Cunningham, a Republican who lost his seat in November, blasted the Democratic majority Monday night for adopting a 1992 budget that he said froze services and awarded paybacks to Media's six biggest property owners. The budget, passed by a 4-2 vote with Republican Councilman Lewis Johnson absent, lowers the property tax from 15 to 10 mills while increasing the earned-income tax from 0.75 to 1 percent.

Ninth in a series of 25 Setup: The Sixers, coming off a painful NBA Finals in which they blew a 2-0 lead on the road against Portland, started 1977-78 at 2-4. Owner Fitz Dixon wanted a change and called on a familiar face. The 76ers of the late 1970s were one of the most exciting and entertaining teams to ever grace the NBA. Fans, especially on the road, would make sure they'd get to the arenas early so they could watch George McGinnis, Julius Erving, Lloyd "World" Free, Joe "Jellybean" Bryant and Darryl Dawkins put on a display of da dunk.

NEWARK, N.J. - Steve Cunningham thought he did everything he needed to in his fight with Antonio Tarver to emerge victorious Friday night. He thought he was the busier fighter, a notion backed up by CompuBox numbers. The 39-year-old Philadelphian threw 678 punches in his split draw with Tarver (31-6-1), who threw 450 punches. When the fighters did engage, it was mostly Cunningham (28-7-1) who initiated. But Tarver landed a higher percentage of punches (31 percent to 23 percent), and he appeared to land the more telling blows, wobbling Cunningham on at least two occasions with his deceptively strong left hand.

NEWARK, N.J. - Before they stepped into the ring at the Prudential Center, Steve Cunningham and Antonio Tarver both acknowledged the crucial nature of their fight. However, none of the urgency that was predicted by both fighters emerged over 12 rounds as the fight was ruled a split draw in front of 5,843. Referee John Stewart had it 114-114. Robin Taylor scored it for Tarver, 115-114, and John McKaie saw it for Cunningham, 115-113. Give them credit for not falling asleep at ringside as the fight was that bad. It was a worthy decision for 12 rounds of inactivity.

Even after he tested positive for a banned drug three years ago and was suspended for a year, Antonio Tarver did not believe his boxing career was over. "I admit that there were some doubts," Tarver said. "I mean, who wouldn't? But I always felt inside that there was more waiting for me. " While the odds are long, he may be right. A 1996 Olympic bronze medalist, Tarver, 46, still hopes to become the oldest fighter to win the heavyweight championship. Tarver (31-6, 22 knockouts) began his professional career at the Blue Horizon in 1997.

COUNT WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder among those who hope Southwest Philadelphia's Steve "USS" Cunningham wins his scheduled 12-round heavyweight bout with Antonio Tarver tomorrow night at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. Whoever emerges as the victor presumably moves a bit closer to the front of a crowded line for a possible title shot at Wilder.

Kennedy Cunningham was one step ahead of her father, Steve, at DSG Boxing Gym one afternoon last month. While Cunningham, a 39-year-old heavyweight from Philadelphia, changed into his workout spandex, his 9-year-old daughter pulled on big red gloves and threw them at a punching bag. While Steve had his hands taped, Kennedy stepped into the ring and playfully sparred with her 4-year-old brother, Cruz. Cruz backed her into a corner, and she fought her way out, squinting and smiling.

The world is full of terrible and average people, lots of half-decent ones who do dumb things when they're drunk, and those rare heroes who lift our collective spirits with a game-winning touchdown or successful round of CPR. That whole mishmash of humanity exists in Philly, like a plate of steaming scrapple, and it's evident in the people offering to rebuild a hitchhiking Canadian robot and those who allegedly jumped him over the weekend in...

Ron Pollack watched his father crunch numbers for years as a member of the 76ers' statistics crew and as a pro basketball employee since 1946. Harvey Pollack was credited with coming up with the system of tracking rebounds, steals, turnovers, blocked shots and other statistics. However, "the one number he never came up with was how many lives he touched," Ron Pollack said Friday afternoon at his father's funeral at Goldstein's Rosenberg's Raphael-Sacks on North Broad Street. Those sentiments were echoed repeatedly at a gathering of about 200 to say goodbye to Pollack.

NEWARK, Del. - Even by the standards of the NBA's Development League, Tuesday's game between the Delaware 87ers and the Sioux Falls Skyforce was contested in front of a sparse crowd in the Bob Carpenter Center on the campus of the University of Delaware. The predicted snowstorm meant very few bought advance tickets and, of those who did, many accepted the team's invitation to choose another game ahead of time. So the teams - the 87ers are an owned-and-operated affiliate of the 76ers - played the game in relative solitude, mostly in order to fill in the blank spaces on the box score and to move another day closer to whatever might come next.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Gloria M. Burns on Friday approved Revel AC Inc.'s request to terminate the deal to sell the closed Atlantic City casino to Brookfield Asset Management Inc. for $110 million. Next up for the $2.4 billion Revel, which opened in April 2012 and never turned a quarterly profit, is a Jan. 5 hearing for the judge to consider a sale to the backup bidder, Florida investor Glenn Straub, for $95.4 million. Neither Brookfield nor Straub - in Key West, Fla., for an unrelated court hearing - were represented at the hearing or on the phone participating in the hearing in Camden.

Billy Cunningham doesn't know the 76ers' general manager, Sam Hinkie, other than to have a casual conversation. But the former Sixers great admires the architect of the Sixers' long-term rebuilding approach. "I tell you what, I tip my hat that they have the fortitude to try it," Cunningham said. "I don't think I would have had the fortitude to try it. " In the second season of a tanking strategy to acquire top draft picks, the Sixers - 0-3 to start this season - are looking at two first-round picks and three second-rounders in the June 2015 draft.
