Kubiak's offense becoming 'the Ravens' way'( Kenneth K. Lam, Baltimore Sun / May 29, 2014 )
You can tell Gary Kubiak was a former head coach just by the way he carries himself in practice. It's the way coaches stand and the presence they have about them.
You can tell who is running the offense.
"Gary's a great coach," Harbaugh said. "To try and name all the different ways that he's impacted us -- how much time do you have? He's a heck of a coach. The biggest thing that I'm impressed with, among many things, is how well-built the offense is. The offense is really well organized. It's built in such a way that it can be executed with speed and with confidence, and that's the goal, but yet have the answers you need to compete against the defenses that you're going to play against.
"But beyond that, the influence that you're talking about, he's obviously had a big impact. He's the coordinator on offense, and he's installing an offense that's new to the team here, but it becomes us. "It becomes our offense. It becomes the Ravens' way, and he's doing a great job."
