Breaking down Aaron Rodgers’ throwing mechanics: Possibly not as sharp as you think

Ever since it became clear Aaron Rodgers would be a New York Jet, one of the most common discussion points has been the impact Rodgers could have on Zach Wilson.

Being Wilson’s idol, Rodgers seems like the perfect mentor for Wilson. Wilson even tries to play the position with a similar style to Rodgers.

The full, member-only Aaron Rodgers film breakdown (1:09:00 in length) can be found at the bottom of this article (must be a Jets X-Factor member and logged into the site). 

One frequent claim is that Rodgers can help Wilson improve his throwing mechanics. But is that really true?

When you watch Rodgers’ film, it’s clear that his mechanics… aren’t actually that great. They’re not bad, but they’re not as consistent as people would think.

Rodgers is just such a talented thrower that he is able to be accurate even without great mechanics. And that’s what makes him special.

On the newest edition of Blewett’s Blitz, we get into part 2/4 of our Aaron Rodgers film breakdown. After watching the first half Rodgers’ 2021 MVP season in part one, this breakdown focuses on the second half of Rodgers’ 2021 MVP season.

  • Why aren’t Rodgers’ mechanics as perfect as people think?
  • How does Rodgers still succeed in spite of those mechanics?
  • What led to Rodgers’ elite success with Nathaniel Hackett in 2021?

All of these questions and more are answered on this edition of Blewett’s Blitz.
