What's the use of this?

Exactly how much could it confuse the QB? By giving him extra time to throw as a LB gets engulfed by the opposing team's OT?

I don't like Jared Allen, Tamba Hali, or Jimmie Wilkerson dropping back for coverage. They're too slow to cover anyone, and they're not bringing anything to the table that our linebackers aren't already.

Its not really to confuse, its to have the part of the zone covered. More or less for a quick slant.

It's part of the Zone Blitz.

I would rather give the qb less time to throw?

Jason Taylor seems to pull it off well, but he's a freak

Greg Robinson used this all the time. I hated it. I remember watching Ryan Simms drop back into pass coverage with a 3 man rush.

The only time I saw it work was in a red zone situation when we played Buffalo a few years back. Could have been the 13-3 season. Simms drops back and grabs the INT off Bledsoe.

Other than that, I've never seen it work (for the Chiefs anyway).

Zone blitz. Every team does it.

The zone blitz' primary purpose is to disrupt the quick routes, like the inside slant.

With those throws, there is no QB pressure because the ball comes out too fast.

It works for me in Madden when people try rushing with Vick
