What's tricky is that they line up the same whether it's zone or man. They blitz from the same positions. So you don't know which receiver is your hot read and there's a chance with some offenses that if the receiver and QB read the coverage differently, that they'll actually be on different pages and end up making a mistake (QB throwing to an empty space, etc.).
Instead of looking like it's man and shifting to zone or looking like it's zone and shifting to man or disguising blitzes or whatever, it looks the same every time. It looks vanilla. But then from that vanilla base, they could go into almost any type of defense. If it works, it's great. But you've got to have guys that can move.
