I don't believe this to be true.

I believe that Carr routinely audibles to "Now" routes as well. If Carr is at the line and notices that one of the WRs (usually Johnson) has soft coverage, he overrides the playcall (whether it is a pass call, or a run call) and takes the now route (the hitch passes at the line of scrimmage).

Against the Packers, Al Harris was usually in a press coverage and we didn't see "Now" routes, but in many games we see a lot of them, sometimes audibled to twice in a row.
