They haven't been given the same opportunity. The Giants and Packers don't play their WRs on underneath routes - they both run vertical offenses and play to the skill of their WRs, not make their receivers adjust to a given gameplan. I think that's where Haley's offense falls apart - adjust to talent, not the other way around.
They can't catch anything so I think the type of routes are insignificant. Outside of Nate Washington catching a huge one on occasion - what type of routes do you think the last SB squad ran? They ran routes a helluva lot of the bunch formation and improv once the play broke down. I don't remember too many vertical game plans until Wallace showed up - and then, well, it was getting waaaay too greedy on the yardage when all we needed was a 1st down (ARIANS)
