ANNAPOLIS -- It was a simple Blue-Gold game that meant little to the few fans who bothered to attend. But for Navy coach George Chaump, at least the spring practice ended with the knowledge that his offense next season will be in good hands.Those hands belong to Jim Kubiak, who in his first spring practice completed 18 of 28 passes for 316 yards, as the Blue team defeated the Gold squad, 33-7, at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.Sure Kubiak, who'll be a sophomore, played most of the game with the protection of a red jersey that made him untouchable to the Gold defense.

When the Ravens signed three free agents in the offseason to boost their offense, only the acquisition of veteran receiver Steve Smith seemed to create a buzz around town. After six games, all three additions and center Jeremy Zuttah have had a significant impact, but none greater than Smith. He gave the Ravens two elements they were missing from last season - a go-to receiver who could work the entire field, and a hard-nose veteran with a strong work ethic Smith has 35 catches for 573 yards and four touchdowns so far this year.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- There had to be an anxious moment on the Navy sidelines yesterday on the game's second play from scrimmage when Jim Kubiak was sacked by 249-pound Virginia defensive end Matt Mikeska.It had been almost a full year since Kubiak was last hit during a game. That was also against Virginia, when he was knocked out with a separated shoulder in the third quarter of a 53-0 loss.Yesterday, Kubiak was able to get up. More importantly, he withstood the heat from an aggressive Virginia team and finished the game.

In a frenetic era of football where the hurry-up offense tends to be all the rage, the Ravens have adopted more of an old-school approach. The Ravens haven't entirely scrapped the no-huddle offense under new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, but it's definitely been reduced to something they do more out of necessity -- it's not a heavy chunk of their base offense. That's in stark contrast to a year ago when former offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell devoted many of his game plans to the no-huddle in an effort to spark a stagnant offense that finished 29th in the NFL last season.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Gary Kubiak, heading into retirement after a nine-year career as backup quarterback to John Elway in Denver, gave the Broncos something to remember him by yesterday.He gave the Broncos' offense some life when Elway was benched in the fourth quarter of the AFC championship game, and he gave them a late touchdown, but he couldn't deliver a comeback victory."I'm going to look for a job, I guess, in the next few weeks," Kubiak said after his relief bid to get the Broncos to their fifth Super Bowl fell short in a 10-7 loss to the Buffalo Bills at Rich Stadium.

In the third quarter of a Week 6 game in Seattle, Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan turned to offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak and told him to assume play-calling duties.What followed was certain to grab the attention of several needy teams around the NFL.With Denver's Super Bowl victory over Green Bay, Shanahan has surpassed the Packers' Mike Holmgren as the league's reigning offensive mastermind.The fact Shanahan calls all the plays in Denver was one reason Kubiak didn't get the vacant head-coaching job in Dallas last winter.

Naval Academy graduate Jim Kubiak will be allowed to pursue his dream of playing professional football after reaching an unprecedented settlement with the Navy that will release him from the bulk of his Navy duties.Kubiak, who for the past year has sought a job with the Indianapolis Colts, sued the Navy in January. Rather than go to trial, the Navy reached an agreement with Kubiak two weeks ago. The five-page settlement was confirmed by Navy officials yesterday."I think the Navy decided it was a win-win situation," said Mary Pat Fleming, an assistant U.S. attorney who represented the Navy.

If you think the Ravens are being coy about their running back situation, Lorenzo Taliaferro wants to let you in on a little secret. Offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak doesn't let the players know in advance how he'll divvy up the carries on game day, either. "He doesn't really tell us who's going to go in during the week," said Taliaferro, the Ravens' rookie running back. "[It's] … whoever they call and put in. We'll all step out there and get the job done. " There remains a shroud of mystery about the Ravens' running game as they face the Carolina Panthers Sunday afternoon at M&T Bank Stadium.

Soon after the 2013 season ended, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh admitted that he knew his offense was in trouble once tight end Dennis Pitta was injured and declared out for the season shortly into training camp. Pitta is out for the season again after he re-injured his hip Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, and the Ravens announced Wednesday that starting left tackle Eugene Monroe could be out for an extended period because of a knee injury. It's not a good situation for the Ravens, who play the Indianapolis Colts, Atlanta Falcons, Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers within the next six weeks.

The process of fixing what ailed Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco didn't start with his right arm, his eyes or what's between his ears. It began with his feet. Flacco and the rest of the team's passers started nearly every day of training camp with a drill in which they high-stepped over and around cones while keeping their eyes downfield. The message was sent early that to quarterback a Gary Kubiak offense, they had better perfect their footwork. “It's kind of the way I teach guys to read,” Kubiak said.

Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak said Thursday that he's dealing with Week 1 nerves just like his players are, but if there was ever a team he wouldn't mind breaking in his new offense against, the Cincinnati Bengals might be it. Kubiak was 8-2 in seven seasons as the Houston Texans' head coach against the Ravens' AFC North rivals, including five wins against the Bengals, against whom the Ravens open their season on Sunday. This deserves all the usual qualifiers, including how Kubiak's system stalled out last year in Houston and how much the Bengals defense has improved since he last played them.

Standing in front of his locker late Thursday night, running back Bernard Pierce smiled when reminded how the Ravens struggled mightily to run the football last season. Pierce was typically grouchy after games last year, a man of few words and even fewer explanations for why the Ravens rushed for the fewest yards in franchise history. Pierce was in a much different mood at M&T Bank Stadium after the Ravens' 23-3 victory over the San Francisco 49ers to open the preseason. For at least this game, the Ravens' revamped running game was transformed into a dominant outfit as they rushed for 237 yards and a touchdown on 48 carries to average 4.9 yards per rush.

In theory, the West Coast offense doesn't appear to be ideal for an East Coast football team. Gary Kubiak's version, though, might be the perfect fit for the Ravens. The short, quick passes still will be a major staple of their offense, but in Kubiak's system, the running game sets up the pass. When John Elway was the Denver Broncos' quarterback, he won back-to-back Super Bowl s in 1998 and 1999 with Kubiak as the offensive coordinator. Elway expects Kubiak to also be successful in Baltimore, where he will debut as the Ravens' offensive coordinator Thursday night against the San Francisco 49ers in their preseason opener.

With the second-largest crowd in the history of Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium looking on, Kubiak admitted being a little nervous.

Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak said one of the biggest competitions of training camp is at wide receiver. "In all my years in the league, I don't know that I've ever seen as competitive a situation as we have at receiver right now," Kubiak said. "I would have no chance telling [coach] John [Harbaugh] which five or six I would want right now. " The top of the depth chart includes Steve Smith , Torrey Smith (Maryland) and Jacoby Jones , with Marlon Brown the likely fourth receiver.

Dennis Pitta was in constant motion throughout the Ravens' offseason practices, making it difficult to get an accurate read on where he would line up from play to play. Signed to a five-year, $32 million contract in March, the tight end is expected to have a versatile role in new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's offensive system. That includes everything from Pitta being split out as an extra wide receiver to working out of the backfield as well as traditional in-line tight end alignments.
