There's 4 guys who are coming and 1 or 2 potential blitzers, but it does take much of the guessing out of the equation for the offense.
We can still disguise our blitz; we can send the nickel back in for the blitz.
Or we can mix in our 46 look.
We can bring one or both safeties up.
It all depends on how aggressive Wade wants to play it.
And don't forget that in passing situations, we go to our nickel and dime package a lot. And it's by choice!
