Fitz knows how to throw

Posted by Chris Brown on May 30, 2012 – 11:53 am

There are reports out there about Ryan Fitzpatrick’s work with QBs coach David Lee on his throwing mechanics. Lee is not teaching Fitzpatrick how to throw with respect to his arm. He’s coaching him up on certain mechanical flaws that can create inconsistency in his throwing, and most deal with the lower half of his body.

As we profiled in our story on Fitz’s work with coach Lee last Thursday, most of what Fitz is working on concerns the lower half of his body, especially his footwork. Fitzpatrick wouldn’t be in the NFL if he couldn’t throw. His 62% completion percentage last year despite some mechanical issues with his throwing that weren’t addressed serve as indication of that.

Now with Lee watching every one of his snaps, that percentage figures to be respectably higher in 2012.
