ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski was critical of Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III's mechanics during a Wednesday appearance on ESPN Radio's The Herd with Colin Cowherd.

"He’s still developing," Jaworski said, according to the Washington Post. "We’ll see what Jay Gruden and this new offensive staff can do for him. But clearly he’s got to learn to play from the pocket. His mechanics have regressed, by the way. They have regressed in the fundamental way of throwing the football: his throwing slot, his footwork, his inability to remain consistent in that."

Griffin's statistics last season fell short of the impressive marks he set as a rookie in 2012. He completed a smaller percentage of his passes, threw less touchdowns and more interceptions, and had fewer yards per attempt. His record as a starter was 3-10, compared to 9-6 in his first season in the league.
