In this scheme you really can't say who is responsible for who because defenders are not simulated beings. They move and in the ZBS you don't really chase defenders. If a D-lineman stunts or slants or the defense does some kind of blitz, the linemen's steps and technique should allow the puzzle pieces to fall in place.
It's kinda hard to explain, but not really....
I have already stated that the shorter routes can be run out of a "disguised" run off the ZBS.
Anything from a quick dump pass to the flat, a screen pass, a QB roll out with one WR running a timing pattern, a naked bootleg (which can lead to a long pass play), etc.
The only thing I'm discussing here is the drop back pass.
All the defenders that anyone of our O-lineman met just happen to be in the flow of the blocking train. And if they "bite" the run fake, there shouldn't be any defensive stunting to speak of.
