  1. The Pats are under the most pressure. By far.

    The window is closing… and Father Time is gaining on Brady. This night will probably be their last realistic shot.

  2. Lol?

    Who ever expects the Cowboys to WIN a superbowl? If anything Brady’s last year has the most pressure to WIN a superbowl. Since theres a good chance they’ll be back.

  3. Vikings have to be back up there too.. They have come close but since the 70’s never quite had the QB, beside Favre..

  4. Thats an easy answer The Patriots are under the most pressure this year and every year simply because they expect it of themselves and its what everyone else expects of them. They are the one team that is considered to have a failed season any year they dont win it all..

  5. The Cowboys, should they ever tire of being known as America’s Losers. But, unlike when Jimmy Johnson ran the show, now they merely seem like the house band for the world’s biggest stadium.

    love it. keep thinking that

    even more motivation for the healthier 2018 team

  7. The Vikings. They’ve been off season champions for years now. Their coach is over hyped. They suffered an epic embarrassment in the NFCCG with their supposed historic defense’s collapse. They need to win something soon. They won’t, but they really need to.

  8. Every team should play to win. Most don’t care. Participation Trophys are for little league. Get it or don’t. Play to win. Most organizations are showing up so they can get their share of the TV revenue. Winning is secondary. It stinks, but that is the truth.

  9. The greatest dynasty of all time, the dominant team of the 21rst century, is under pressure to win another SBowl? Is that a joke?

  10. In the NFC, Sean Peyton, because Drew Brees is entering his 18th season and the window is closing fast. After that comes McCarthy whose team was exposed as mediocre after the loss of Rodgers. A better supporting cast would put the Packers over the top.

    In the AFC, John Harbaugh’s Ravens have under-performed, and Joe Flacco has not recaptured his form from their Super Bowl season several years ago. At some point, without improvements, changes will be coming. Is Joe Flacco really a franchise QB?

  11. I would have to guess Zimmer is pretty high on that list. Last year, the stars aligned perfectly for him and he couldn’t get it done. The Super Bowl was in his home Stadium, Keenum played out of his mind, Aaron Rodgers’ injury took the Packers out of contention, and in Philly he faced a backup QB playing for an extremely inexperienced head coach… and even with all of that, he just couldn’t close the deal.

    He’s 5 years in (I think) and he’s been given “his kind of guys” throughout the roster, especially on his “vaunted” defense… and that defense is what ultimately failed.

    Here’s the thing Mike 🙂

    Everything after the greatest comeback in sports history a year ago is gravy for the back to back AFC and 5 time World Champion Patriots. 🙂 Nothing left to prove. No pressure whatsoever until the reset button is pressed when Brady walks away. Greatest dynasty in NFL history, hands down. Greatest run of excellence hands down. Period.

    Hope you and Mazz give us a shout out!

    🙂

  13. I’d say the pressure has always been on the Patriots to win an honest Super Bowl. Which will never happen.

    I’m sorry, what fabricated storyline was used in an attempt to discredit the greatest Super Bowl comeback of all time against Atlanta?

  15. pats under least pressure since their legacy of the longest dynasty is secure for at least 18 years and probably forever.

    eagles probably most since expectations and talent level so high. it’s harder to stay on top. maybe falcons having come close and fear of ryan’s window closing.

  16. After that comes McCarthy whose team was exposed as mediocre after the loss of Rodgers. A better supporting cast would put the Packers over the top.
    =====

    McCarthy was exposed YEARS ago after a series of HORRENDOUS Playoff losses. Somehow, people just caught on last year.

    The Packers are not legit contenders. Aaron Rodgers is the ONLY thing that can take them to the promised land next year. They simply have too much work to do rebuilding that roster. Not just the defense, at this point…

  17. Everything after the greatest comeback in sports history a year ago..
    =====

    You just watched that Bills-Oilers game last year?

    Sorry you missed 1993.

  18. Steelers under no pressure to win a Superbowl. They can’t even get to the Superbowl. Garbage time Ben doesn’t understand that stats don’t win unless you score more points than the other team.

    That was the biggest comeback in number points. It is not the greatest. There’s a difference.

    That one was a wild card game at home, this one was the Super Bowl, and unlike the Patriots the Bills were not down 25 points with a couple minutes left in the 3rd quarter.

    Try again. 🙂

  20. The vikings. In Teddy We Trust tells us every year that he feels sorry for others teams in the NFC because the vikings are so good. Now, with egg on his face after the embarrassing exit last season, he is trying to spin it on the Packers. Your defense wins championships mantra didn’t pan out last year. Better hurry up and get that first Super Bowl win.
