When Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III stepped on the field for the first time since blowing out his knee in January he looked like a guy whose recovery is still a work in progress rather than a player who is all the way back.
That’s the word from former NFL quarterback Ron Jaworski who said on ESPN’s NFL Matchup that Griffin isn’t throwing the ball well because he’s still favoring his injured knee.
“His mechanics are flawed right now because of the injury” Jaworski said.
As Jaworski showed a Griffin interception he talked about how Griffin’s footwork was all wrong.
“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.”

Mike Shanahan made a huge mistake,he shouldn’t have let Robert Griffin III start the first game of the season. It is obvious he isn’t ready to play, and with what has happened in his first 2 games, he is probably losing his confidence. RGIII looks nothing like the quarterback we saw last season. He is playing not to make mistakes and he is making a ton of mistakes. The Redskins...

After watching Robert Griffin III play last week, ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworksi pointed out that he’s favoring his injured knee, which in turn is messing up his mechanics.
“His mechanics are flawed right now because of the injury,” Jaworski said.

After tearing his ACL at the end of last season, it’s obvious that Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III does not have the same mobility he did when he lit the NFL on fire in his rookie year. But an intern at FOX Sports is yearning for RGIII’s moves. So much so, that he (or she) couldn’t get Bobby Griffin out of his (or her) head Sunday while running the bottom line....
The Redskins lost to the Packers on Sunday, and looked pretty bad doing it. Led by quarterback Robert Griffin III, Washington failed to get on the scoreboard until almost eight minutes into the third quarter, were out-possessed by almost five full minutes and converted only three of 11 attempts on third down.
Don’t saddle Griffin with all the blame for the loss, though. Hall of...
The Redskins are 0-2 and in both games, Robert Griffin III played the same way: horribly in the 1st half only to recover in the 2nd half. Unfortunately, the Redskins have been unable to overcome Griffin III’s horrible play in the 1st half and that’s why they’re winless at the moment.
Normally when a quarterback is returning from major knee surgery like Griffin III, patience...
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...
Redskins QB Robert Griffin III rebounded from a second straight poor first half to finish with 320 yards and three touchdowns Sunday at Green Bay.Fantasy Spin:Griffin has thrown for zero first-half touchdowns and five second-half scores through two games. The the Redskins' defense doesn't get things together, Griffin will be able to continue to compile gaudy garbage-time stats.
A quarterback known mostly for his mobility sat back and picked apart the Green Bay Packers' defense through the air last week, leaving half of the team's defensive game plan in ruins.
Not much went according to plan for Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins in their opener either, mainly due to their once-dynamic running game being held in check.
Green Bay faces...
Someone actually asked Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan whether or not the team was considering the idea of benching quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Griffin has struggled to start the season and the Redskins have fallen to 0-2. Additionally a lot of the Redskins struggles can be traced back to a defense which has been torched in the first half for two consecutive...

Fans of the Green Bay Packers have had the last week to wail and nash our collective teeth over the loss (again...third in a row) to the San Francisco 49ers. It's another week, another game, and another read-option quarterback who may -- or may not -- give the Packers defense trouble.
