Robert Griffin III had a statement game against Chicago.
By completing more than 60 percent of his passes for the first time since Week 3 vs. Detroit, posting a quarterback rating above 100 for the second time in 2013 and averaging a season-best 10.28 yards per pass attempt, Griffin III proved he’s back to the playing form that earned him 2012 NFL Rookie of the Year.
In a Friday conversation with John Keim, ESPN’s quarterback guru explained the improvement he observed on film.
He’s gradually gotten better. He clearly had flawed mechanics early in the season due to not being 100 percent healthy, but he’s gotten stronger every week. He’s been more mechanically sound. I still believe he missed some throws in this game. But clearly he’s getting healthier, the offense is getting better, there’s no question. You saw the designed runs which were very effective and that will present problems for the Broncos. The offense is now getting back to where it was last season when he was healthy.
Jaworski said he sees Griffin III trusting in his legs to power his throws.
He clearly now is getting weight on that back foot. I’ve seen him drive throws down the field, so clearly he’s getting much healthier.
In addition to discussing Peyton Manning and the Redskins’ pass rush, Jaworski also described the threat Jordan Reed presents to opposing defenses.
This guy is going to scare the hell out of defenses. They can’t load up the box when you have the ability to get him down the field matched against linebackers and safeties. That’s a mismatch. He has a chance to be really good.
