In the early 90's I would have said more pressure, but tough to argue that there is more pressure in NY right now.

Going on 7 years without making the playoffs, and a GM/President isn't fired after running the team for 4 season ??? Doesn't sound like pressure to me.

A coach that doesn't hold his players accountable ??

Not enough demands or pressure was placed on the players IMO.
