I've never disregarded the stunt. I specifically mentioned that sometimes the defense dictates itself, that means they have decided to do certain thing regardless whether it's a pass or running play.
When they stunt, it was simply an exchange of positions of D-linemen.
Wherever they decide to penetrate they will still be met by a blocker in that train.
The same principle applies.
They key point is how to take care of the guy attacking the C gap (outside the LT).
That guy can be a DE or in case of a stunt, a DT.
There might be a LB or Safety coming on from that side as well.
For visual aid, I suggest that you review the two plays:
1. Mario sacked Cutler
2. Finnegan sacked MS
Both times were drop pass with the defender acctacking the C gap.
(In these instances, the blind side of a Right-handed QB).
