HOUSTON - All the Carolina Panthers wanted was for Jake Delhomme to have a shot at leading them to victory in the fourth quarter. No matter how bad he looked for most of the first three quarters of the Super Bowl, they knew he"d come through when it mattered most. He did. It just wasn't enough to top the last-second dramatics of New England kicker Adam Vinatieri. Despite a go-ahead 85-yard touchdown pass to Muhsin Muhammad and a 12-yarder to Ricky Proehl that tied it with 1:08 left, Delhomme could only watch helplessly as Vinatieri kicked the Patriots past the Panthers, 32-29, last night.

Jake Delhomme still can't trade his walking boot for cleats. Cleveland's starting quarterback, who injured his right ankle in his Week 1 debut with the Browns, has not been cleared to practice and it appears he will be sidelined for this Sunday's game at M&T Bank Stadium and possibly next week as well. Browns coach Eric Mangini has been intentionally vague about Delhomme's status, and the team has given no specifics about the severity of the ankle injury, which the 35-year-old suffered while throwing a costly interception in the first half of the opener at Tampa Bay. If Delhomme can't play, and that appears the case, backup Seneca Wallace will make his second straight start Sunday against the Ravens.

HOUSTON - On one side of the field, Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme sat on the bench in silence. Tears couldn't be that far away. On the other was New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, celebrating his team's second Super Bowl championship in three years. In a Super Bowl that proved to be one of the most exciting and memorable, both Delhomme and Brady provided some great moments in the Patriots' 32-29 win over the Panthers last night before a sellout crowd at Reliant Stadium.

Quarter by quarter 1 -- PANTHERS 3, RAVENS 0 Boller replaces injured McNairThe Panthers committed two turnovers in the quarter, but they did march 59 yards on nine plays to take the lead on John Kasay's 21-yard field goal. On the Ravens' ensuing possession, quarterback Steve McNair was sacked by Mike Rucker and Chris Draft and left the game with a concussion and sprained neck. Kyle Boller entered, but the Ravens' offense was forced to quickly punt. Scoring Panthers: FG Kasay 21, 2:35.

In a league full of stories about tenuous relationships between starting and backup quarterbacks, it is rare to run across a bond like the one that exists between the New Orleans Saints' Aaron Brooks and his understudy, Jake Delhomme. Each is a fourth-year player in the prime of his playing life. "We established a friendship from Day One," Brooks, a starter and team captain, said of Delhomme. It is their unwavering bond, Brooks said, that sparked yesterday's 37-25 victory over the Ravens.

Among the remaining playoff quarterbacks, there are the household names and there is Jake Delhomme. Peyton Manning has earned a Most Valuable Player award. Tom Brady has earned a Super Bowl championship. Donovan McNabb has earned annual Pro Bowl invitations. As for Delhomme, he didn't earn the Carolina Panthers' starting job until after the season opener. Few NFL fans knew about him at the start of the season, and fewer still can correctly pronounce his name to this day (Duh-LOAM and not DELL-home)

HOUSTON - Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme has gone from the "Crawfish Capital of The World" to the nation's largest sporting event. Now, if everyone would just learn his name. No, not Delhomme (pronounced duh-LOME). It's the first name, stupid. It's Jake, not Jack. "Jack - I've been called that all my life," said Delhomme, 29. "I have a cousin, an older cousin, who was a coach at my high school. He was Jack. Now, he's the mayor of my hometown, so it was always `Jack.' I just kind of got used to it. I don't have that much of an ego to let that bother me."

As a cornerback, the Ravens' Samari Rolle is used to being under scrutiny. So after giving up a pair of touchdowns in the 23-21 loss to the Carolina Panthers at M&T Bank Stadium yesterday, the former Pro Bowl player didn't duck the media that hovered around his locker. "They got our number today," he said. "They've got good players, and we just didn't play very well, especially me." Rolle was Carolina quarterback Jake Delhomme's favorite target. Delhomme threw the ball in Rolle's direction 11 times, completing eight for 171 yards and two touchdowns.

Attach an asterisk to the Carolina Panthers' 4-2 record. The Panthers lost their first two games, but they're unbeaten since wide receiver Steve Smith returned from hamstring problems. "It's like taking Michael Vick away from Atlanta, like taking Peyton [Manning] away from the Colts," quarterback Jake Delhomme said, talking about what Smith means to Carolina. "He gets other teams to account for him on every play. I'm glad he's on our side." Smith tormented Samari Rolle and the Ravens, as he turned eight catches into 189 yards, the most productive receiving day against the Ravens since Jacksonville's Jimmy Smith had 291 yards on 15 catches in the second game of 2000.

With the game on the line, the Miami Dolphins finally found a way to stop the Carolina Panthers' Steve Smith, forcing Jake Delhomme to throw to somebody else: a defensive back. Safety Lance Schulters intercepted Delhomme with two minutes left to set up Olindo Mare's game-winning field goal, and Miami won, 27-24, yesterday. Rookie Ronnie Brown rushed for 132 yards for Miami, while Carolina lost despite Smith's 11 catches for 170 yards and three scores, including a 53-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter to tie the game at 24. The Panthers were driving for a potential winning score on their next possession when Schulters stepped in front of a pass intended for Keary Colbert and returned the interception 37 yards to the 25. Five plays, later, Mare kicked a 32-yard field goal with four seconds left.

HOUSTON - From the time he took over for starting quarterback Rodney Peete in the season opener, to a division title and to back-to-back playoff road victories, Jake Delhomme has provided the steady hand for the Carolina Panthers. Though he rarely dazzled, Delhomme also never seemed to rattle. But both scenarios occurred in the Panthers' 32-29 loss to the New England Patriots last night at Reliant Stadium. Delhomme was horrible for much of the early part of the Super Bowl, then rebounded in what would have been one of the greatest turnarounds in championship game history.
