The Falcons have had a need for pass rushers for as long as I can remember. And after Week 1, it seemed Atlanta finally found one. However, in Week 2, it was made abundantly clear this unit still needs significant upgrading. To make matters worse, a former Falcons pass rusher — John Cominsky — is excelling with his new team.
Cominsky again led the Lions in pressures this week with 7! on just 26 rush attempts.

I always thought Cominsky was a perfect fit for Dean Pees’ scheme because of his inside-outside versatility along the defensive front. In base defenses, he could’ve lined up as an edge defender with his hand in the dirt in even fronts or standing up in odd fronts. He could’ve slid down to play the five-technique defensive end in odd-man fronts in those same base defenses.
