I think your right Tony, for this package to really work you need to be able to switch between man coverage and zone coverage. The first few times you show it you go man, this makes the QB hold the ball for a second longer allowing the rush to get there. Then you mix in a zone and zone blitz utilizing Kiesel, Farrior (Timmons) and Polamalu.
Same personel, same formation, same look, totally different movement at the snap of the ball.
