Can the Falcons actually generate a pass rush? Don’t let the Tyson Jackson signing fool you. They paid him top dollar, but he operated as a part time player who always came off the field in passing downs. He isn’t really a dominating run defender but he gets the job done. Can Stansly Maponga or Johnathan Massaquoi generate a rush? According to recent reports, no one has stood out and this team was the worse defense when it came to getting off the field on third down last year.
