The opt out of Faumui and graduation of Eli Hanback

is what I think everyone is missing when it comes to pressure form the front seven. Faumui was more of a disrupter than I believe everyone recognized and Hanback was just so solid, maybe not spectacular, but he was always disciplined and in the right spot. The loss of those two d-linemen has been huge IMO, not having Faumui in the rotation along with Alonso, Briggs and Burney, hasn't given Jahmeer Carter and Atarwia (JMU transfer) the needed time to watch and adapt to the scheme. The lack of pressure up front keeps the linebackers from being able to slide through and make plays, and that's what's different from last year. It also makes the DB's defend longer and exposes the lack of DB speed. JMO
