You are correct in most zone schemes. But that is one of the Gibbs nuances, he uses a FB with the ZBS.
BTW WCO have always depended on the FB, Roger Craig was a FB for Wendell Tyler. Then remember Tom Rathman. They are the reason the playbook is so big. One year the team would feature the FB and then they would ignore him for a few years. Kept team guessing.
