It’s arm-ageddon at Redskins Park. You’d better stay out of arm’s way. The Redskins have an armed force.
As this report by Les Carpenter at Yahoo! Sports describes, the Redskins frequently refer to Robert Griffin III by talking about “The Arm.”
"It's more of running to your left and flicking your wrist and throwing the ball 70 yards," said Rex Grossman, who will back up the Roman-numeraled quarterback. "His arm almost comes off like a whip."
Having built up his arm — or apparently his wrist — when he was injured as a sophomore at Baylor, Griffin throws with a deceptively easy motion that delivers a ball on a line when other QBs would throw the more familiar parabola.
"It takes some getting used to," tight end Logan Paulsen told Yahoo.
Grossman compared RG3’s motion and powerful ball to Michael Vick’s. Not seeming to put a lot on it, but then — pow!
The Arm strikes again.
"He's going to make some impressive plays," Grossman said. "Not just runs, he's going to make some big plays when everything breaks down."
