New York Jets last week Greg Gaines Jersey nfl draft , rookie receiver Courtland Sutton turned to teammates on the sideline and vowed to play hard until the very end.He fulfilled that promise by running the length of the field to wrangle down safety Marcus Maye at the 1-yard line and prevent an end-of-game pick-6.Sutton, who caught his first touchdown pass as a pro in the first quarter of Denver's 34-16 loss, was Case Keenum's target in the end zone on the final play of the game.The ball was batted around and ended up in hands of Maye, who took off down the sideline."I had already told everybody on the sideline there ain't no quit offensively and defensively," Sutton said. "There was no quit. We were going to fight to the end no matter what the score was. And I was going to give everything I had until the clock said zero-zero-zero."Maye chugged his way through would-be tacklers for a 104-yard interception return.He needed 105."That's a pride play," Broncos linebacker Todd Davis said. "The last thing you ever want to do is let another team score.""I think everybody on the sideline knew that there was no quit in me," said Sutton, whose stop at the 1-yard line left Maye with the longest interception return without a score in NFL history.Maye, who was playing in just his second game since missing most of training camp and the preseason while dealing with ankle and foot injuries, buried his helmet in the turf after getting tackled just shy of the goal line while teammate Parry Nickerson patted him on the back.Neither Maye, who ran a total of 140.7 yards on the return, according to NFL Next Gen Stats, nor Sutton said anything to each other after the play."Nah, I know he was tired because I was tired," Sutton said. "So, I just kind of laid there like catch your breath a little bit."Sutton's heart and hustle weren't lost on his teammates."It shows a lot about who he is, and I really appreciate that," Keenum said. "Not just what happened on the play Cheap Greg Gaines Jersey , but just the type of guy he is. I'll line up and go fight with those guys any day."The Broncos are going to need some resiliency as they try to snap their three-game skid Sunday when they host the Rams (5-0) ."This is a game we know we can win against a team that nobody feels we can beat," Davis said.A forecast that calls for snow and temperatures in the lower 20s might also help slow LA's dynamic offense featuring Jared Goff, who leads the league with 1,727 yards passing, and Todd Gurley, who tops the NFL with seven TD runs."That's what we do here in Denver, man, we love the cold," nose tackle Domata Peko said. "We practiced all week in it, so hopefully these sunny LA boys come out here and see how cold it is."Special teams coordinator Tom McMahon said the Broncos "got lucky on Wednesday and had the blizzard, so I think the guys are ready for that. We got the same day Wednesday that I hope we get on Sunday, and we played through it pretty well."That was not a blizzard."To me it was," McMahon said. "The snowflakes were taller than me coming down."Sutton was impressed, too.That "was the first time I've ever played in snow," Sutton said. "It was a lot of fun. Everybody from up north they were laughing at me, telling me I needed to calm down. But I thought it was a lot of fun. I thought it was cool."Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: ://arniestapleton There is no denying the impact on the coaching world that Bill Walsh and Bill Parcells have had. The hard evidence is apparent again as the NFL playoffs begin.All 12 of the coaches have some sort of tie-in to either three-time Super Bowl champion Walsh or two-time winner Parcells. Yes, all 12.Some are direct: New England’s Bill Belichick, New Orleans’ Sean Payton and the Chargers’ Anthony Lynn were assistants under Parcells.Other affiliations on the coaching tree go out on a bit of a limb. The Colts’ Frank Reich worked for Doug Pederson Custom Greg Gaines Jersey , who coached under Andy Reid, who worked for Mike Holmgren, who was a Walsh protege.It all gets a bit complicated, but as Bob Glauber, the NFL columnist at Newsday points out, all the connections are legitimate.Indeed, Glauber’s recent book, “Guts And Genius,” is all about not only Walsh and Parcells, but Washington’s Joe Gibbs. The subtitle of the book tells it all: The story of three unlikely coaches who came to dominate the NFL in the ’80s.“As I was researching the book, I discovered how those two coaches really concentrated on helping other coaches,” says Glauber, the current president of the Pro Football Writers of America. “Parcells learned from his high school basketball coach, Mickey Corcoran, that he had to give back and help other coaches, and he always lived by that rule.“Walsh was so upset he was passed over as Bengals head coach by Paul Brown (in 1976) that he promised himself that if he ever did get a head coaching job, he would make it a point to help develop other coaches. He started what I think is the most productive coaching tree in pro sports history, not just in the NFL.”Consider that such Walsh disciples as George Seifert Greg Gaines Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , Mike Shanahan, Mike Holmgren and Pederson have won Super Bowls.“He knew how to train coaches and he concentrated on it and it meant a lot to him to see them become successful coaches,” Glauber says.“It is not coincidental that for Walsh and Parcells, their lifeblood runs through these playoffs this year.And previous ones.Glauber points out that since 1981, 30 of the 37 Super Bowls have been won by a coach with ties to either of Walsh or Parcells. After the big game in Atlanta, 18 of the last 19 champions will have some affiliation with those two Bills.Here’s the breakdown on the other head coaches in this year’s playoffs, which begin this weekend with the wild-card round.Seattle’s Pete Carroll: coached with 49ers under George Seifert, who was Walsh’s defensive guru and Walsh’s replacement as head coach in San FranciscoDallas’ Jason Garrett: worked for Nick Saban, who coached under Belichick.Baltimore’s John Harbaugh: was special teams coach under Reid.Los Angeles Rams‘ Sean McVay: was on Shanahan’s staff.Chicago’s Matt Nagy: served as offensive coordinator for Reid.Houston’s Bill O’Brien: worked for Belichick.Philadelphia’s Pederson: was assistant coach under Reid.Interestingly, while Walsh was the master of the West Coast offense, some of his disciples have a defensive bent (Carroll, Harbaugh). And several of defensive mastermind Parcells’ guys — Payton, Belichick — win with offense. Of course, Payton has Drew Brees and Belichick has Tom Brady.
