I'm not saying Jones fits this description but some players' "game speed" is faster than their "stopwatch speed". I recall that Franco was timed at 4.8 in the 40, which wasn't considered "fast" even in 1972. But when he broke into the clear he was seldom caught if it was a straight-out foot race. They had to have the angle to catch him.
But, this has never been a gambling defense...very few defenses are...
Again, the idea is to get pressure with four rushers when possible...the principles of the 3-4 and zone blitz allow you to send different rushers every time, confusing the protection and leading to unblocked pass rushers...
When you don't have a good talent level in the NFL, no defense works...
