Default Zone Blocking Details..?

With the thought of Kubiak soon become our HC there is something I have been wondering. Hopefully someone with more knowlege of the subject can shed some light.
I know that we have been employing a zone blocking system for the past few seasons. It has been compared many times to the Denver system, especially as a measure of our success or lack thereof.
My question is this;
Have we been using a system that's identical (or mostly so) to the Denver system, or is it another viarety of zone scheme?
Are there variations on this scheme, and if so, what are some of the differences between ours and theirs?
That's all I had... I'll hang up and listen...

Hmm.. I cant give a definate answer on alot of this stuff... but from what I understand.

- We run a scheme very close to Denver's

- I dont know that there are variations on the scheme.. but some teams use it more than others. Us and Denver use it alot.

- The difference between ours and theirs is that we dont quite have the personel to run a line like Denver's. Our linemen are too big. I dunno if we were trying to run a zone blocking scheme while maintaining our ability to be elite pass blockers or what.. but obviously it aint working.

There are probably different variations and schemes, not sure if ours is the exact same as Denver's though...http://espn.go.com/ncf/columns/davie/1440703.html

Zone blocking in the running game is when two or three offensive linemen work in tandem as opposed to each offensive lineman having a specific, predetermined man to block. Zone blocking involves the center, guard, tackle and tight end working in combination to block an area with an emphasis on double-teaming the defensive linemen who are aligned on the line of scrimmage.

The concept is for two adjacent linemen to come off in unison and attack a defensive line to the play side or to the side the ball carrier is going. The advantage, as opposed to man blocking, is that you create a double-team with two players blocking one defensive lineman. This allows the offensive linemen to be aggressive because he knows he has help if his defensive lineman was to pinch inside. It also provides movement at the point of attack, which can open creases for the running back.

Zone blocking initially starts out as a double team at the point of attack on the down defensive linemen, but the beauty of it is that one of the offensive linemen will leave to attack the linebacker while one stays to take over the defensive lineman. The key is for the two offensive linemen working in unison to double-team the defensive lineman to decide who and when one of them will leave to block the linebacker. In the diagram below, we show the offensive line starting the initial double team on the defensive lineman.
