There's more to it (at the NFL level) than just saying run a fly/post/curl, etc... You have to know how to alter your route based on the coverage and be on the same page as your QB when you make those subtle alterations. A slant pass against a Cover-2 is going to look different than when it's run against a Cloud defense...and even more so than against a Man coverage. Also, your slant pattern changes (subtly) based on route combinations...because if your TE is running an out...or a drag (if he's opposite side of the field) it alters angles and such as well.
oh i forget he doesn't know any of this.. b/c he is a rookie...
i guess he just played back yard football when he was at texas tech...
