Detroit Lions Podcast: Our interview with John Cominsky

USA Today

What better way to exit the bye week than with a chat with one of the core players of the Detroit Lions’ defensive upswing!

Lions defensive lineman John Cominsky joined us on the Detroit Lions Podcast after Thursday’s practice session. He graciously talked about his path to Detroit and how special the situation is with the Lions and this regime, among other things.


Cominsky gave a very good answer and perspective on “setting my frame smaller” and focusing on the little details of being successful instead of worrying about the bigger picture. It kicks in around the 16-minute mark of the video and it’s a great look at why Cominsky has clicked into being an important piece of the Lions defense after washing out in Atlanta.

He also describes what it’s like to work with a legend like Chris Spielman, who is from the same Canton (OH) area and remains a prominent hero in both Lions lore and Northeast Ohio. What does grit mean to “The Commish”?

Cominsky dishes a little on what it’s like to play between young studs Aidan Hutchinson and Alim McNeill, and what practices are like under Dan Campbell.

After Cominsky’s time is done, we get into a preview of Sunday’s matchup in Los Angeles with the Chargers and why this game won’t be an easy win for the Lions.
