this is where i see the vision tomlin had for the steelers in the future with the drafting of timmons and woodley 1 and 2. timmons has the speed to cover a marques coulston or keyshawn johnson type receiver. timmons could essentially flip flop between a safety or lb if stuck on the field during a "no huddle". woodley is a college DE and can easilly rush the edge as an end, or lend coverage and run support as a LB. i dont think we will see the full potential of these 2 until atleast 09. until then, i think they will be great in the sub packages they show they can learn.

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.
