After going through the first week of free agency and as the beginning of the NFL preseason is a scant 10 days away, it's becoming more and more clear which teams have the most pressure on them to succeed.
These teams have either acquired a bunch of talent in order to make a run at the playoffs and/or Super Bowl, or these teams are really hearing it from the media and their fanbases for not having done enough in free agency to improve their rosters.
Regardless of which category these teams fit it, one thing is extremely clear: The head coaches and general managers of these teams are on the proverbial hot seat right now.
See, those of us who love football are grateful to have it back, but we don't want to have it back just to see our teams do poorly or fail to meet expectations. This creates a more inpatient fanbase and media contingent than usual right from the start.
The head coaches on the hot seat are pretty obvious and will be mentioned over and over, so let's break with popular trend and look at the general managers on the hot seat.
Note: Some general managers have a different official title such as Vice President Player Personnel. The men identified as general managers on this list are the final decision-makers who handle a team's personnel.
