Kubiak makes his point as Ravens offensive coordinator

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) The improvement of the Baltimore Ravens' offense under Gary Kubiak can be measured by a variety of statistics, including Justin Forsett's 1,147 yards rushing and Joe Flacco's career-high tying 25 touchdown passes. To focus solely on those numbers would be missing the point, or rather, the points. The Ravens have scored 389 points this season, and with 10 more...

J.J. Watt and Texans hope to ruin homecoming for Ravens’ Kubiak…

Ravens’ offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak was head coach of the Houston Texans for most of the prior decade. So you’d expect some mixed emotions from the Texans players as the Ravens (9-5) try to build on their playoff drive this Sunday at Houston (7-7). But all-purpose defensive end J.J. Watt has made it clear he wants a W at all costs against his former coach’s team. The...

Ravens-Texans Preview

The Baltimore Ravens control their playoff fate with the regular season winding down. While the Houston Texans remain mathematically alive, making the postseason is highly unlikely - especially given their state of flux under center. Gary Kubiak is among some key Ravens who may get extra motivation from facing their former team, but they already had plenty because Baltimore could...

Houston Texans at Oakland Raiders: 2014 Week 2 NFL Pick

Houston Texans (1-0) at Oakland Raiders (0-1) This is a tough one and one I don’t really have a strong opinion on. On one hand, I don’t know if I’m ready to bet on the Texans as field goal favorites. On the other hand, I do think the Texans are going to bounce back in a big way this season. They looked good in the opener in a 19-6 win over another team I think is going to bounce...

On the Film: Kubiak’s Presence Seen on the Field

Gary Kubiak has had a lot of talk aimed his way in a positive form as he was the figurehead for the hope Ravens fans have in their offense after a somewhat dreadful season last year. On the Ravens first touchdown pass, the Ravens scored easily on second down. Here is the influence of Kubiak played out in the red zone.  This is a touchdown pass to Owen Daniels, a former tight end...

Flacco and Ravens make grim debut in Kubiak’s new offense as Bengals win, 23-16…

The Ravens offense was hard to find in OC Gary Kubiak’s new system on Sunday. Baltimore’s defense did a pretty good job of bending but not breaking against Andy Dalton and company, holding them to 5 field goals and a long-shot tipped pass over Chykie Brown that A.J. Green somehow managed to keep his balance upon and haul in for a killing score. WBAL’s Stan White interviewed...

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) The Baltimore Ravens seem to be adjusting well to new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. The Ravens have averaged a league-best 194 rushing yards in two preseason games. That's a far cry from last year, when the Ravens ranked 30th in rushing. Their average of 3.1 yards per carry ranked last. The running game is ''where everything starts for us,'' said Kubiak...

The relief for Ravens fans is nobody got beat up too badly in the first full-contact practice sessions.

Another point of optimism— Ricky Wagner has looked pretty good so far at right tackle—and he’s been going up against Elvis Dumervil, arguably still one of the...

If Recent History Repeats the Houston Texans Will Make the Playoffs This Season

It was tough for fans of the Houston Texans to watch their team play last season. To go from being two-time division champs to the worst team in the league was a hard pill to swallow. The only good thing to come out of it (besides getting rid of Gary Kubiak) was the No. 1 pick in the draft--former South Carolina defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney.Not to mention that if recent history...

Comparing Chip Kelly to Gary Kubiak—what could possibly go wrong?

The most significant news to me coming out of Eagles OTA’s is that DT Bennie Logan has bulked up to 317 pounds (all muscle mass!) and the future of the defensive front looks a whole lot brighter. But today I wanted to take a look at the offensive system Chip Kelly has installed, and try to compare it to what Gary Kubiak had success with at Houston before the wheels came off the...

Bill O'Brien is getting his feet on the ground for his first season as Houston Texans head coach. And he wants his players to start doing the same. Former Texans coach Gary Kubiak didn't mind his players rolling around on segways, but O'Brien won't allow it.   The two-wheeled scooters were a common means of transportation for running back Arian Foster, and he even bought one for...
