Every initial quarterback in NFL is facing pressure to implement.
Just as each player’s skill set is different, so is each coach, roster and front office. All of these factors contribute to the varying degrees of pressure QB faces each season.
Colin Cowhardt praised these degrees for a number of famous callers across the league on Wednesday at The Herd.
Here is his breakdown:
Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers emphasize the scales for Colin’s QB pressure cooker
In today’s Best for Last, Colin Cowhard plays “QB Pressure Cooker”, where he defines the pressures of QB like Derek Carr, Justin Herbert and Zack Wilson.
Low pressure: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers
Colin’s thoughts: “He got his money. The packers were not aggressive [in the offseason]. He has nothing to prove and this may be his last year. I think he looks comfortable and feels comfortable. He has his Super Bowl, a legacy and they are preferred to win the division, so I don’t think there is much pressure. “
Medium pressure: eagles QB Jalen hurts, Raiders QB Derek Carr, Chargers QB Justin Herbert, cardinals QB Kyler Murray
Pain: “All his critics, he led them to the playoffs. His concern is that there are problems with accuracy. He can’t complete 59% of his throws. He has to make Jeffrey Lurie and Nick Siriani believe he can do 60%. He is a quarterback with low accuracy. This is a difficult place these days. But I think getting to the playoffs gave him a place. “
Car: “He did get Davante Adams. But again, a new general, a new coach, a difficult division. I think if they go 10-7, [that’s good.] I don’t think anyone chooses them to win the division. Most people do not choose them for the playoff team. That’s where his pressure comes from: they have some really good offensive pieces and they don’t have to go to the playoffs, but he has to introduce himself. “
Herbert: “The pressure on the coach is great. It has been found [Herbert’s] good. The question is whether they will try again in the fourth and 10th team? I think the staff is facing a lot of pressure because he was the best quarterback who did not qualify for the playoffs. If they get into trouble at the end of the game, Brandon Staley will have to answer for it. “
Murray: “He’s good, it’s established. He saved the franchise and he’s getting better every year. I think Cliff Kingsbury has more pressure than him because his teams are getting worse every year late. I think it’s on Cliff. I think the pressure will pay off and he wants to play. I’ll pay him tomorrow if I’m the cardinals. If you don’t, who will you start next year? “
High pressure: Commanders QB Carson Wentz, 49ers QB Trey Lance, bears QB Justin Fields, The Broncos QB Russell Wilson, Jets QB Zack Wilson
Lance: “Shanahan [creates] winning culture. They beat Green Bay in the playoffs with Jimmy Garopolo. He is 22 years old and already has a year to prepare. Over 400 days. This coach wins matches with each quarterback. So if he’s fighting, it’s not Kyle, it’s Trey Lance. “
Wreath: “This is his last shot. [Colts owner] Jim Irsie said it was a huge mistake [to acquire him]. He is under .500 as a starter in the last two years. [The Commanders have] There is a problem with the owner and you have to win this division. I think they have the best defensive staff at the front of the division. So I think there is real pressure on him. “
Fields: “It’s Chicago, it’s the bears, so there’s always pressure. But they’ve been so bad at quarterback – it’s not like the intensity of Trey Lance. They haven’t won a playoff game in 12 years, but I think you’re He has to show me something. Remember, next year is a great quarterback in the draft, and if he fights, there will be some people with the Bears who will say, “Hey, that’s a mistake.”
Russell Wilson: “This is a rookie coach. Assuming they don’t win the Super Bowl, but enter the playoffs, you can say, “Well, Andy Reed.” They have a new owner, a new coach if he wanted to [Bill] Bleach or [Sean] McVeigh [it’d be different]. It’s a good lineup, so he has to win. “
Zack Wilson: “Accuracy problems, extremely inconsistent. The Jets will give him another year. This is not a good team, they will probably finish fourth in the division. They will potentially have a top 10 in the draft next year and this is a great quarterback in the draft. If he’s still talented but fickle, don’t joke. The Jets want to find their next Namat, they have retired [Sam] Darnold, they will move away from him. New York is impatient, and Wilson was too volatile last year. “
