just here to help, Holiday said. Down the stretch I

FLORHAM PARK, N. Mens Air Max 2018 Grey .J. -- Chan Gailey watched Bryce Petty scramble to his left and, with a defender in his face, launch a pass down the field across his body -- and off his back foot.The first reaction by the New York Jets offensive coordinator probably mirrored that of many fans.No! No! No! Gailey recalled with a smile Wednesday. Then, he had a great play, and you get your call sheet ready for the next one.In other words, whew.Pettys gunslinger-like play was a key moment in overtime, connecting with Robby Anderson on a 26-yard pass that helped set up Bilal Powells winning 19-yard touchdown run last Sunday in New Yorks 23-17 victory at San Francisco.We needed to make a play and Robby made a great play on that ball, Petty said. Really, it was an outstanding effort by him.Petty kept the play alive and took a chance -- one the coaches might tell him he probably shouldnt in the future.Theyll say that if it doesnt work, Petty said with a big grin. Its one of those things that if it works, great, thats how we drew it up. And if it doesnt, `All right, lets not do that anymore.Petty had an uneven second NFL start, and first since being elevated to starter for the rest of the season. He was 23 of 35 for 257 yards, and had four rushes for 19 yards . Oh, and he also threw an interception on his first pass against the 49ers. Rather than be discouraged and rattled, Petty bounced back quickly.He did some good things, Gailey said. I thought he got more comfortable as the game went on. I hope hell learn from that experience and hopefully hell be better this week. Thats what you hope young players do.Petty acknowledged he had some nervous moments going into the game, something that surprised him.I dont really know why, said Petty, a fourth-round draft pick out of Baylor last year. Its being able to work through those things. I like the jitters. Theres a positive to that because Im passionate about the game. Im excited about that. Just have to be able to work through those.I think I was trying to confirm too much, seeing looks and wanting to make sure this is exactly what I saw instead of seeing it, trusting it and going.Coach Todd Bowles said Petty needs to improve on reading defenses, a common shortcoming for inexperienced quarterbacks. Bowles also wants him to loosen up a little bit early.Petty understands exactly where Bowles is coming from, and he agrees. Hell focus on having fun rather than trying to be perfect. Hell also exhale a bit before the game starts.There will be nerves, he said. I think its that part of getting through it: `OK, Ive done this. Its OK. Weve got it. Knowing what it can do and how it does hinder me and kind of use that knowledge to say, `OK, I cant let that happen, and be able to pull from it in a positive way.Its all part of the education and development of a young quarterback in the NFL.So is walking the fine line between being reckless and showing progress on the field.Do you take away a guys natural feel for the game and the playmaking ability that a guy has? Gailey said. You dont want to take that away, the aggressiveness and the, `Hey, were going to make a play here, by making him too conservative, either.Petty idolized Brett Favre while growing up in Midlothian, Texas, and his playing style resembles the Hall of Famer a bit. Favre, of course, retired as the NFLs leader in TD passes as well as interceptions.I dont like to use the word `gamble, Petty said of his own approach. No, I think thats kind of something Ive done since high school is when a play breaks down, I dont like giving up on plays.Instead of gamble, what would he prefer to call it?Making a play, I guess, he said, smiling.Petty was sacked six times by the 49ers, and he pinned them on himself because he held onto the ball too long. Gailey thought it was more Petty needing to make cleaner reads.Ill probably be better this week in that situation, in those scenarios, and just trust what I see and play, Petty said.Facing Miami on Saturday night, Petty will be up against one of the leagues most aggressive defensive fronts, with Ndamukong Suh, Cameron Wake, Jordan Phillips, Andre Branch and Mario Williams -- who have combined for 22 sacks -- leading the way.They have a really, really good pass rush, definitely the best Ive seen playing, Petty said. Its definitely an emphasis to get the ball out and just distribute because when we do that, positive things happen.---For more NFL coverage: and Black Air Max 2018 Outlet . PETERSBURG, Fla. White Air Max 2018 On Sale . Wall made the comment in a speech to a Regina business crowd that included Lesnar. The U.S. wrestler and retired mixed martial artist says he was visiting his brothers farm in Saskatchewan and decided he wanted to hear what the premier had to say. . "Trying to breathe," he said with a grin. Bernier stopped 42 of 43 shots on Monday night, including all 22 in a hectic middle frame, his heroic performance propelling the Leafs toward an undue point in their final game before the Christmas break. METAIRIE, La. -- As mounting losses bury them deeper and deeper in the Western Conference standings and Anthony Davis holds out for help like a kitten caught on a telephone wire, the New Orleans Pelicans have cautioned not to expect any miracles upon the return of Jrue Holiday.We dont want to put pressure on him and make him feel like hes the savior, general manager Dell Demps said.Jrues not the cavalry, coach Alvin Gentry said last week. Hes not coming in with the white horse and the stuff like that.Indeed, when it comes to New Orleans postseason chances, the white horse may have already left the barn.The Pelicans, at 2-10, are one game better than they were this point last season, when an injury-induced malaise ultimately gave way to a disappointing 30-win season. Precedent doesnt foretell a much kinder future this time around, either: In NBA history, of the 65 teams that have started 2-10, eight have gone on to make the playoffs.But perhaps this offers a shred of hope: The most recent team to begin 2-10 and make the postseason cut was the 2010-11 Philadelphia 76ers, who started a 20-year-old point guard named Jrue Holiday.Thats just the beginning of why Holidays return from a three-month hiatus to tend to his wife and new daughter has loomed over this beleaguered franchise, even as every member with a speaking role has, to their credit, stressed patience and family first.Hes an All-Star, point-blank, said Pelicans forward Solomon Hill, a fellow Los Angeles native who shares a trainer with Holiday.Hes a great defender, scorer everywhere. Hes a leader. Hes been there, hes been in the playoffs, hes upset guys in the playoffs. Hes a proven vet, but hes still young. Hes definitely a core-type player, one that you [build] a franchise around.The Pelicans obviously have one of those in Davis, whose numbers have swelled across the board as his role expands to include keeping tempo, singing backup and cleaning up afterward. Even after missing Wednesdays loss in Orlando, the 23-year-old superstar leads the team in minutes played, points, rebounds, blocks, steals, field goal attempts, field goal makes, free throw attempts, free throw makes and morose interviews.But as anyone with internet access will tell you, Davis needs more support. Even as their superstar maximizes an offensive workload befitting Atlas, the Pelicans rank a meager 27th in offensive efficiency. Take Davis and the since-waived Lance Stephenson off the ledger and their field goal percentage (40.8) would rank tied for last.The leagues basement is also where youll find a 3-point percentage (29.1) that somehow dips on open looks (22.3 percent, per, of which there are plenty thanks to the attention Davis draws.ETwaun Moore has stretched out his legs in new environs but an aversion to contact leaves him dependent on a slow-coming 3-ball.Tim Frazier scraps and knows how to keep Davis stuffed with touches (40 percent of Davis buckets come off Frazier passes, per, but has seen his turnover rate steadily rise as defenses adjust to play the pass.Terrence Jones had perhaps the best non-Davis offensive performance with 26 points in Wednesdays loss to the Magic, but their skill ssets may overlap too much to coexist like they did in Kentuckys 2012 national title run (the duo has a minus-8.

Theyll take something, anything from a talent like Holiday to galvanize an offense that mustered league-average last season despite a parade of late D-League call-ups but has struggled this season with parts coach Alvin Gentry admits are better-suited in tertiary roles.With a guy like [Holiday], a guy that can score the ball the way he does -- youre not just talking about scoring but efficiently, Hill said. Getting to the line, creating for others. You cant just all of a sudden triple-team Anthony Davis anymore. You have to account for [Holiday]. Regardless if he plays five minutes or 48 minutes, hes going to affect the game. He just brings an intensity that if youre not ready for him youll never be ready for him.Davis, whose effective field goal percentage last season rose four points when he played next to Holiday, per, has been looking forward to the opportunity since the summer.We worked out a couple times together in L.A. We just tried to develop that chemistry, Davis said. Theres always been that gap where we couldnt really build that chemistry. But this summer was a good summer for us. Its unfortunate he had to go through what he had to go through with his family. But now that hes going to be back, we got to try to find a way to rekindle that chemistry.How quickly theyll be given the opportunity to showcase their pick-and-roll synergy remains to be seen. Holiday, at least from the jump, is likely to come off the bench until he gets back up to NBA speed.It will be harder to keep Holiday -- who occupied a bigger role on offense than ever last season yet kept his turnover rate among his career lows and assist rate among his career highs -- away late. The Pelicans are tied for the most crunch-time opportunities this season, per, but have also totaled the most losses (7) in those situations in large part because of the sixth-worst clutch offense.I think I can do whatever they want me to do, if its cheerlead, hand out Gatorades, play defense, call a set, whatever it is. Im just here to help, Holiday said. Down the stretch I do think I could help with some directing and just tightening it up at the end of the game.No one will confuse Holidays talents for those of Davis, whose origin story has reached the part where the superhero begins to hone his newfound powers. But a steady hand to guide him may be enough to save the day.Until he gets back I really wont be able to understand it, but Im pretty sure he has [maybe] the largest role on our team, Hill said. AD, being a young guy still coming into his own. Of course [Davis] can score the ball. But just that leadership role hes taken -- hes definitely taken strides, but Jrues done it. Jrues played with multiple All-Stars, played in the playoffs.He knows who he is. I definitely think when he gets back, hell be able to be that guy for us.
