There are plenty of quarterbacks under pressure entering the 2022 season. Craig Shemon rattled off a list of 16 quarterbacks under pressure this year. But he didn’t rank them, and that’s pretty lame. So I have taken his good idea and turned it into a great idea. NFL Quarterbacks under the most pressure-power ranked. The biggest problem with Craig’s list was including the 2nd year quarterbacks. Now, I’m not saying they’re not under pressure. But, they way the rookie contract are structured, it’s very rare for a guy not to see year 3. For that reason I’m writing off Mac Jones, Zach Wilson, Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, and Davis Mills. Trey Lance is on the list though. My thought process there is the same pressure Mac jones had last year. Handed the keys to a very good franchise that has has real expectations.
There are 3 different buckets, or categories of pressure. The first is trying to save his job with his current team. The second is trying to save his career as a starter in the league period. And the final type of pressure is proving you’re the long term answer. I don’t know if the number of quarterbacks under pressure is this high every year. It might be a good exercise moving forward. But in all reality this will probably be a one time deal and the door will get closed on this forever.
So. Craig said there are 16 NFL quarterbacks under pressure in 2022, but we will look at the NFL Quarterbacks under the most pressure in 2022. Here we go, 10-1.
