The video begins in star studded fashion, "Ah, hello. Ha ha."
"It's Randall Cunningham calling." CCC favorite NFL QB, Randall Wade Cunningham Sr played in the NFL for 16 seasons, primarily with the Philadelphia Eagles.
"Is this the Costa Rica's Call Center?" Not only was Randall the most exciting QB, our nearshore outsourcing services can always score a touchdown by closing the deal with clients.
"Are there any Randall Cunningham fans over there?" Too many to count. He has a huge fan base in the Central America BPO industry. Cunningham was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2016. Cunningham was also inducted into the Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame in 2000.
"Is Richard around?" Yes and been in CR for the past 20 years as a leading telemarketing trainer. An actual fan from Philadelphia that has seen you play live in Veterans Stadium at the northeast corner of Broad Street and Pattison. After playing college football at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Cunningham was selected in the second round of the 1985 NFL Draft by the Eagles, with whom he remained through the 1995 season. Following 11 seasons with the team, he announced his retirement from football, but returned after a year away from the game to join the Vikings. Upon retiring for a second and final time, Cunningham became an ordained Protestant minister and a coach at Silverado High School.
"Anyway, I wanted to give an Eagles hello to the staff there from the favorite QB RC." Cunningham was the Eagles' second-round pick in the 1985 NFL Draft. In his rookie season he played sparingly as a backup to veteran Ron Jaworski but made a big splash with his uncanny scrambling ability. As in sports, an offshore BPO team must be able to adapt on the phone to move the call forward into the endzone for an appointment. Same strategy, different vertical. Yet, both require a player to react not act in real time. A sack or a hang up will be the end result.
The video concludes with a reminder of greatness, "#12 Philadelphia Eagles." Cunningham was said to have reached "elite" status during the 1988 season, as he was elected by league players as the NFC starting quarterback for the AFC-NFC Pro Bowl (the first black quarterback to ever be elected a starter). That same year, he combined with fellow Eagle Pro Bowler Reggie White to lead the Eagles to the NFC Eastern Division Championship. Bilingual telemarketers can easily relate to a winner on the field.
"I heard that you celebrated your 12th year anniversary in business." In 1989, on October 2 Cunningham also set the regular season franchise record with 62 pass attempts (now shared with Nick Foles), also against the Chicago Bears. He had been an all-conference quarterback and punter while at UNLV, and unleashed a 91-yard punt against the Giants on December 3, the longest in Eagles history (and the fourth-longest ever). He had 20 punts during his career, with an average of 44.7 yards per punt. It takes a division 1 organization to last more than a decade in the competitive offshore BPO industry. KPI and Metrics matter as much as sports stats when comparing ability and the ability to be coached on the field on the telephone.
"Come on...That is what I am talking about!" In a 1990 Cunningham finished with 942 rushing yards, 3rd most ever for a quarterback, 10th best in the league. He averaged 8.0 yards per rush, the most ever by an Eagle of any position with 100 attempts on the season, and third most in NFL history. We appreciate the enthuiasm towards our milestone in the outsourcing industry. Your positive energy was well received.
"Congratulations. I wish many more on you. Much more success." Feeling as if the fans and organization did not fully appreciate his contributions to the team's success, as well as being unhappy with his role as a back-up, Cunningham retired from football after the 1995 season.He left Philadelphia with the third most rushing yards in Eagles history, with 4,482, On August 15, 2002, Cunni
