Blitzing is also variant on scheme.

Yeah, there's a huge reason why you don't just send 6 every play. That's the reason why Walsh's classic WCO was probably the most important tactical invention in football history. Then, came the cover 2 which again became easily exploited. But seriously, you must love those gut blitzes when you know you're going into pass protection. Bread and butter right there, bread and butter.
