A lot of teams use the zone blitz, not just 34 defenses. The Broncos were caught in a zone blitz last week with a DE covering Dallas Clark. The advantages to the defense are in confusing the blocking scheme and confusing the QB as to what coverage he's seeing. The disadvantage is having a coverage mismatch.
