Who’s under the most pressure entering Week Two?

Wednesday’s PFT Live draft focused on one word: Pressure.

Specifically, who’s under the most of it as Week Two approaches?

Simms and I rocketed through four rounds, with Simms starting strong but quickly going off the rails. The extended segment, including the strangest concession speech you’ll ever hear, appears in the video.

Check it out and then make your case for others who are facing plenty of pressure in only the second week of the season.

  1. As a close friend of the organization you’d have to put the most stress on John Lynch. Imagine if that team isn’t where the public thinks it is? If they go 0-2, they’re poised for a real roster overhaul come 2019

  2. Without a doubt, Tyrod Taylor. You can overlook his performance against Pittsburgh (crappy weather, good defense, new team and all that), but he’s got a #1 draft pick nipping at his heels and a fanbase that won’t tolerate too many more games like that.

  3. I’d suggest sports media must be under the most pressure for 24/7 ideas. I mean it’s week 2.

    Try to stay around .500 until Thanksgiving when the real season starts. We are 6% into the new season and this is the 3rd time I’ve heard this topic this week between TV radio and internet (and the week is only 3 days old)

  4. .
    The Steelers can ill afford to lose to the Chiefs. As Baltimore is at Cincinnati on Thursday one of those teams will be 2-0. Pittsburgh does not want to be a game and a half behind after only 2 weeks.
    .

  5. Given the mouth that never stops pointed directly to the need for better play calling, I would say Scott Linehan. I think that was the only criticism I read that pointed directly to one person.

    Gotta be Gruden after all of his crazy roster moves and poor showing at home on Monday Night
    —————————————————————————————————————————–
    1. What crazy roster moves?
    2. They played the Rams, a team a lot of people think is a SB contender.
    3. He just signed a 10 year deal.
    Otherwise I think you are spot on.

  7. Why was Matt Patricia expected to turn around Detroit again? His resume with the Pats wasnt all that impressive.

  8. Should be Patricia he looks like a bum with his hat backwards,he not running defense with the Patriots anymore,flip your hat around and look somewhat decent,u look sloppy

  9. Why was Matt Patricia expected to turn around Detroit again? His resume with the Pats wasnt all that impressive.

    Not sure, other than his defense led the league 2 years in a row for least points allowed.

  10. Without a doubt, Sam Bradford. You can overlook his performance against Washington (great weather, average defense, new team and all that), but he’s got a #1 draft pick nipping at his heels and a fanbase that won’t tolerate too many more games like that.

  11. I think as far as players go Eli should have the most pressure in week 2. The Giants passed on Darnold and took Barkley #2 I guess thinking they had some imaginary 2 year window where Eli would make them Super Bowl contenders.

    I don’t think the Giants scored 30 pts in any game last year and didn’t come close Sun. Eli has all these great weapons at WR TE and tooo a RB #2 overall and Eli had 0 TD’s in a loss.

    If the Giants loss to the Cowboys who have their own problems at QB in terms of producing pts then NYG fans r gonna be upset they didn’t draft a QB

    Eli looks like he’s already aged in front of us w his best yes behind him. He hasn’t had a single break out offensive performance since 2016. He’s supposed to be considered a HOF QB? As talented as the Giants r at the skill positions they don’t score TD’s & still getting bad o-line play. Is still too early for a must win but this is a huge game for the Giants but may be for Eli w Sam having a great first game as the rookie QB they passed on & now they share same city puts pressure on Eli to perform and shut the rumblings down.

    Trip Tomlin can go into the bye week at 0-5-1 and still be sound as the pound. He will never, ever, be on the hot seat because the Rooneys dig the way he talks. Sigh.

    ———————————-
    Grinding against Tomlin is odd. Clearly his winning record doesn’t matter. I guess you think he should have won 4 SB’s by now.

  13. 1 – gotta be the Bills. The GM/HC going with Peterman, trading McCarron, then going with Josh Allen look way out of their depth.

    2 – Its just one game, but the Lions looked bad.

    3 – Oakland looks bad too, though they weren’t so good last year.

  14. The luster has worn off the snake oil salesman Prescott, even the hometown newspaper bashing him. Give him credit the gift of gab grabbed him a bunch of endoresements
