Ron Jaworski Says RG3′s Throwing Mechanics Are Flawed
Ron Jaworski is at it again.
On the heels of Robert Griffin III looking absolutely rusty in his return to action on Monday night, ESPN analyst and former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski says RG3′s throwing mechanics are flawed because he’s still recovering from his injury.
Jaworski said it’s enough of a problem to be a cause for concern.
“His mechanics are flawed right now because of the injury,” Jaworski said.
“He never gets his weight on the back foot. As this ball comes out, it’s going to lack energy,” Jaworski said. “His front foot, which is where your weight should transfer to, actually pulls back. So you’re losing the body momentum, the ability to drive the ball with the hip snap, to get the ball to the outside.”
Of course Jaworski agrees that those mechanics will improve as Griffin III sheds the rust.
“He had a very serious injury,” Jaworski said. “He is protecting that right leg. I get it, I understand it. But you’ve got to be able to make these throws. And I’m sure in three or four weeks, he will be making these throws. But right now, his mechanics, in throwing the football, those deep throws down the field where mechanics are critical, he is struggling.”
