And if the QB doesn't get the ball off IMMEDIATELY, he's going to get murdered by the 2 unblocked DLs...
That's why he starts in a 5-step drop shotgun, and if there are two unblocked DEs, he immediately makes the quick out to the flanker on the near side of field (to the side that has the apparent blitzing linebacker).

Any team that practices this formation also practices the quick read and ball release. I think he knows he's unprotected.
