Remember that we still have 6 DBs in the dime to cover 5 offensive weapons.
We can go man with a single safety (which we often do) and bring the LB in on a blitz.
Or we can have the LB protecting the short hole or to help out on a certain offensive threat that we key on.
If we decide to go with 2-deep safety, the LB only has to jump on the RB in the short area (if we go man) or we can play zone.
There might be a special occasion when we put a DB on a "scat back" like we did against Dexter McCluster a couple years ago when the Chiefs move him around a lot, from the backfield to the slot, to wide out.
But that is not the norm, and not in the discussion here.
