We have to confess to occasionally giving in to the defeatist notion that Camden is a lost cause. Its poverty, its decay, its problems tend to dominate the headlines and, thus, perceptions. But every now and then, a bolt of energy and enthusiasm flies out of its bleakest reaches, shattering the stereotype, confounding the image. Sometimes a basketball team will do it. Sometimes a class working on a spacecraft experiment. This year it's Camden High School's Marching Panthers - band and ensemble.

When the Eagles have the ball After a three-interception outing last Monday, quarterback Sam Bradford must play better if the Eagles expect to escape Charlotte with a victory. The Panthers allow 241 passing yards per game, but they have eight interceptions in five games. Josh Norman is tied for the league lead in interceptions and has been one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL. The Eagles will miss wide receiver Nelson Agholor again because of an ankle injury. Riley Cooper did not practice last week because of a knee injury and is questionable for the game.

Cheltenham coach Steve Daley said it was just a matter of time until senior guard Scott Feller broke loose, and Saturday night against Central Bucks West turned out to be just the right time. Decimated by injuries to guards Steve Fennal (broken finger) and Leon Johnson (torn ankle ligaments) and forward Mike Sutrynowicz (dislocated finger), the Panthers were forced to play West with a patched-up team that was proven on defense but questionable when it came to scoring. Fortunately for the Panthers, Feller scored a season-high 15 points, senior forward Ralph Richardson recorded 6 in the fourth quarter and the Panthers defeated West, 51-45, in a nonleague game at Cheltenham.

Strath Haven fired off 22 points at the start of its Wednesday night matchup against Penn Wood, but it wasn't enough to stave off the host Patriots. The Patriots rallied for a 62-59 victory over the Panthers in their third win of the year. Both clubs played Friday - Penn Wood won against Monsignor Bonner and Strath Haven triumphed against Upper Darby. The Pats are now 4-0 while the Panthers are 2-3. "We came out slow and they came out hot," said Chip Cifuni, Patriot coach.

THE PICK After watching some of yesterday's NFL action, I'm starting to think that maybe Cam Newton throws five touchdown passes to Jason Avant tonight, runs for another 200 yards and the Panthers roll to victory. But I guess ridiculous results elsewhere (Really, Steelers? You were my best bet this week. Thanks a bunch.) won't really have anything to do with what happens on the field tonight, and I just don't see the Panthers winning without a ton of Mark Sanchez turnovers. Carolina came into the weekend with the league's 26th-ranked run defense.

It started when a handful of men saw children in their West Philadelphia neighborhood crying because they wanted to play football but had no teams to join. It was 1990. Instead of walking away, the men huddled. They pooled their cash - about $700 - and sponsored two football teams for 42 children ages 7 and 8. Because the men could only afford 11 uniforms, the children would pass them among themselves between games. That wasn't ideal, but it was how the teams - called the Panthers - got their start.

Cheltenham hit the road Friday in search of its first victory in state championship tournament play. The Panthers had lost their last two District 1 playoff games last week - to Downingtown and Coatesville. But coach Bob Schaefer thought the Panthers could travel to Dunmore and bounce back with a win against Tunkhannock, the top seed from District 2, in the opening round of the PIAA Class AAAA tournament. When it was all said and done, it was Tunkhannock that did the bouncing, sending the Panthers home with a 53-41 loss.

Coach Chick Donnelly's top priority this season is to recapture the glory that once characterized the William Tennent boys' basketball program. After losing seven of their first nine games, the Panthers looked anything but glorious. Yet Donnelly refused to give up on the team, and his patience has paid off. Led by center Dave Wilding's 17 points, the Panthers won their fourth consecutive game Friday by defeating host Neshaminy, 51-40, in a Suburban One Patriot Division contest.

Collingswood won its fifth football game in a row last night, using its powerful defense to stop Gateway, 29-6. The Panthers, still hoping for a Group 2 playoff berth, raised their record to 6-1 overall and 6-1 in the Colonial Conference. Collingswood had been scored on in only one previous game, a 30-13 loss to Paulsboro on Oct. 1. Gateway fell to 4-3. The Gators' three losses have been to Collingswood, Paulsboro and Sterling - a trio with a combined record of 18-1. Wes Durham's 29-yard field goal got the scoring started, and quarterback Glen Ambrosius was 6 of 8 for 82 yards in the first half, when the Panthers put the game away.

The Florida Panthers showcased their new home and perhaps a new star. Mark Parrish's first two NHL goals broke a tie in the third period as the Panthers christened their new arena last night with a 4-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Parrish, who tied for the league lead with six preseason goals, scored his first career goal at 2:34 of the period to break a 1-1 tie, then gave the Panthers a cushion with another goal at 8:24. "It's nice to see a young player like that break in the way he did," said Florida coach Terry Murray, who was making his debut behind the Panthers' bench.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Sean McDermott was fired by Andy Reid on the Tuesday after the end of the Eagles' 2010 season. The year ended with a playoff loss in January. Almost no one knew for days besides the two men. Reid wanted to keep it a secret. He wanted McDermott to have another job before the firing became public. It didn't quite work out that way. The news leaked four days later, but McDermott, in the interim, had already interviewed with the Broncos and Panthers. The former Eagles coach wanted to protect the then-36-year-old defensive coordinator.

SAN FRANCISCO - There are speeches and then there are Speeches. There are ones that are delivered and quickly forgotten, like a rambling Sunday sermon. And there are others that stir your emotions and leave a lasting impact. Twelve years ago, Sam Mills, a quiet man who usually preferred to let his actions do his talking, gave a stirring, unforgettable address to the Carolina Panthers on the night before their 2003 wild-card playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. Just four months earlier, Mills, the team's 44-year-old linebackers coach, had been diagnosed with intestinal cancer.

SAN FRANCISCO - Corey Brown knows a lot of people don't hold the Carolina Panthers' wide receiving corps in high regard. And you know what? He doesn't really care. "We honestly didn't care what anybody had to say (about us)," the Cardinal O'Hara product said Wednesday before he and his teammates started preparations in earnest for their Super Bowl 50 battle with the Denver Broncos on Sunday night. "We haven't paid attention to any of that. We're not playing for the people who were saying we suck or whatever.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Corey Brown returned to being "Philly" Brown during a rough preseason stretch. The Panthers wide receiver, known to many over the last seven years as "Philly" - as if it were his given name - decided this past offseason that he wanted to be called by, well, his actual given name. His teammates and coaches tried, but habits are hard to break. And then the Germantown native dropped several passes during the preseason, and Panthers wide receivers coach Ricky Proehl decided that this Corey thing wasn't working out. "He had a tough little time for about two-three weeks in the preseason where he had several drops," Proehl said.

Our main pro football guys like the Panthers to win the last game: Les Bowen Carolina has been the best team in the NFL all season, and has shown the ability to play at Denver's level defensively while being much more productive on offense. I think Cam Newton will have to lose this game in order for the Broncos to win it. I'll admit that a week ago, I had the Panthers by a couple touchdowns; I still think New England was the best AFC team and would be playing in this game had Bill Belichick taken field goals instead of going for it on fourth down twice in the title game.

Jamal Holloway calls it "dirty work. " The Camden senior has made a career of battling in the paint, fighting for rebounds against taller players. "I'm happy to do that for my team," Holloway said. Holloway on Tuesday night reached a rare milestone that highlighted four seasons of gritty, determined play. He also showed himself to be more than just a rebounder, making clutch free throws in the fourth quarter and scoring the winning bucket in Camden's 48-46 victory over Washington Township in an Olympic Conference interdivision clash of top-five teams.

ONE OF THE MORE remarkable players at Super Bowl 50 won't play a snap. He is remarkable only partly because of football. Charles Tillman ended his 13th season, and possibly his career, with a torn ACL in the Panthers' regular-season finale. Thanks to a clever memoir aimed at the massive pre-teen book market, Tillman's legacy will encompass much more than appearances in two Super Bowls and two Pro Bowls.

Patriots (-3) over BRONCOS Talked to some of the sports book operators around town, and checked some offshore places, and can tell you that the favorites are getting a huge amount of action. Between 75 and 80 percent of the money flowing in on the AFC title tilt is New England money. Not sure whether it's all Bill Simmons cash, but the bookies are gonna be desperate for a Denver cover. Speaking of Simmons, he posted a stat on Twitter that appeared in the Boston Herald concerning the referee for the game, Ed Hochuli . The Broncos are 7-0 in Hochuli games since 2000, and 6-0 since 2008.

CHARLOTTE - Even when it's not about Cam, it's about Cam. That's the way charisma works. Dogged all year by allegations that their 15-1 record was a combination of a bad division, luck and gimmickry, showoff quarterback Cam Newton and his Panthers beat the red-hot Seahawks a second time this season and denied them a third consecutive trip to the Super Bowl with a 31-24, divisional playoff win. Showoff? Maybe that's not fair. Newton, in his fifth season, is the MVP favorite, the best player on a one-loss team.
