RG3's thoughts on Monday night's game film

Robert Griffin III was very much under the microscope with every move he made during last Monday’s game against the Eagles. When a throw went awry, which happened frequently as the offense struggled in the first half, his mechanics on the pass were dissected in the TV booth, the press box, and by fans in the stadium and others watching on their flat-screen TV’s across the nation. Perceived flaws in Griffin’s technique led to questions about his knee.

Griffin, of course, is well aware that he was closely scrutinized and he has fielded questions about his mechanics. He said that it’s just football.

“There are times when you're in the pocket you have to make an off-balance throw,” he said when talking to the media today. “You've just got to do it. I'm not paying attention to that stuff.”

He said that the injury colors perceptions. “You know, if I make a bad throw coming off of an injury, it's my mechanics, I'm not driving off of my back leg,” he said. But if a healthy quarterback makes a bad throw, it's just a bad throw.”

“I understand that, it's just something you have to not look at,” he said. “You know you're technique's sound, you know how to throw the ball and you do what you have to do.”
