There is tremendous pressure to win in the NFL and teams are constantly scrutinized in the media -- which leads to more pressure. Even though we are heading into only Week 4, three potentially volatile situations bear watching in the next few days.

Is Tom Brady unhappy?
Brady's body language during Sunday night's loss to Denver indicated he is totally frustrated and out of sync. Right now, the only receivers he seems to have any chemistry with are his tight ends, especially Ben Watson, and that's not going to translate into a vertical passing game or many big plays.

Brady is a cerebral guy who does a great job of reading defenses and making adjustments after the snap, but his wide receivers don't seem to be making the same reads and adjustments, leading to a lot of broken plays.

Gary Horton spent 10 years in the NFL as a scout and another 10 years at the college level as an assistant coach and recruiter. He is the founder and most seasoned member of the Scouts Inc. staff, and his extensive experience at all levels of football make him an excellent talent evaluator.
