None Ten NFL quarterbacks facing most pressure in 2017

Pressure is something every single player in the NFL feels to some degree. Entering the 2017 season, however, there are some NFL quarterbacks facing more pressure than most.

For various reasons, it’s do-or-die time for these guys.

Some of them are entering a situation where they have a chance to prove they’re the face of the franchise. Others are in situations with rookies breathing down their necks, and their careers might just be defined by what they accomplish this season. Then there are the veterans who’ve proven themselves in the past but who haven’t had a lot of sunshine and roses come their way of late.

Without further ado, the following 10 NFL quarterbacks are facing the most pressure to succeed in 2017.

Mike Glennon, Chicago Bears

We’ll start with an easy mark. Glennon had an impressive rookie season after being selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He threw 19 touchdowns and just nine interceptions (great marks for a rookie) in 13 starts. Then Lovie Smith came on board in 2014 as the head coach and immediately decided he wasn’t interested in running with a young quarterback.

Though he did land some playing time in 2014, Glennon started the season behind Josh McCown. Then the Bucs drafted Jameis Winston in 2015, and the rest, as they say, is history.

As the clipboard holder in 2015-16, Glennon managed very little playing time. In two games, he completed 10-of-11 passes for 75 yards and a touchdown. That was all she wrote for his final two years in Tampa Bay.

Fast forward to now and Glennon is almost in the same exact situation as he was in 2015. After being signed by Chicago, Glennon was blindsided (cheated on, were the words used to describe how he reportedly felt) when the Bears drafted Mitch Trubisky No. 2 overall, trading up a spot to do it.

Chicago has made it clear Glennon is the guy this year. But there’s a big emphasis on “this year.” Everyone knows Trubisky will get the keys to the car soon enough. Now Glennon has to not only play with a rookie breathing down his neck but prove to the rest of the 31 NFL teams he’s starting caliber.

It’s going to be fascinating to see how this all unfolds in Chicago. If Glennon struggles, his days as a starter are probably over. No pressure, kid.

Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams

The Rams got absolutely fleeced by the Tennessee Titans last spring before the 2016 NFL Draft. Los Angeles, needing to make a big splash as it moved to Southern California from St. Louis, shoved every chip to the center of the table in order to land Goff.

And the early returns weren’t promising.

Goff was protected by bubble wrap for the first half of the season. But Case Keenum was so awful Jeff Fisher and Co. finally had to throw the rookie into the mix. It was ugly. Goff finished the 2016 campaign with 1,089 yards, completing just 54.6 percent of his passes while throwing five touchdowns and seven interceptions in seven starts.
