Coaching in the NFL is a very stressful job, and there is no such thing as tenure, as a good coach can be fired at any time if management feels he is not performing.

Over the past few years, the Buffalo Bills have been one of the best teams in the league, as they boast MVP-caliber quarterback Josh Allen, an outstanding wide receiver in Stefon Diggs, and one of the best defenses in the game.

But despite all their talent, they have fallen short in the playoffs every year, and have made only one appearance in the AFC Championship Game with Allen under center.

This has led analyst Adam Schein to believe that Bills head coach Sean McDermott is under the most pressure of any head coach going into the 2023 season.

A year ago, many were picking Buffalo to not only win the conference but also the Super Bowl.

They started the season 6–1 and had a six-game winning streak when disaster struck in the form of Damar Hamlin’s near-fatal cardiac arrest episode at the end of the season during a highly anticipated game against the Cincinnati Bengals versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Bills were then blown out by the Bengals 27–10 in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

Expectations will be rising for the team once again this fall, and if they don’t reach the Super Bowl, management will have to take a closer look and make some changes to get over the hump.

Buffalo has not reached the Super Bowl since the 1993 season, and they have never won the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
