Gary Kubiak Working To Get Joe Flacco New Playbook

Posted Feb 13, 2014

Gary Kubiak isn’t just bringing the Texans playbook. He’s making adjustments for personnel and vision.

Gary Kubiak hasn’t seen his wife, Rhonda, in Texas since he was hired by the Ravens more than two weeks ago. He rests at a hotel just down the road.

Kubiak has been burning the midnight oil at the Ravens’ training center trying to get his playbook ready so he can send it to his players. And at the top of the mailing list is quarterback Joe Flacco.

“I think the biggest thing when you’re new is getting a playbook done quick,” Kubiak told BaltimoreRavens.com.

“The best thing I can do for Joe right now is get to work and get something in Joe’s hands at some point. We’re going to do that here pretty quickly.”

The sooner Kubiak can get his playbook sent to Flacco, the more prepared Flacco can be when organized team activities begin in late-May.

“Once we start the phases of the offseason, I need Joe to be as far along as he possibly can with my verbiage and how we do things,” Kubiak said. “That relationship has started, along with [Quarterbacks] Coach [Rick] Dennison, and [Flacco’s] the most important guy that we catch up right now.”

Kubiak isn’t just bringing his old Texans playbook and handing it out to his new players. There are adjustments being made according to personnel and the vision of Head Coach John Harbaugh and the Ravens’ way of doing things.

While Kubiak said there’s “naturally” going to be a lot of change in verbiage and system, he added that the most important thing he had to do when first arriving is talk and listen to the coaches that have already been in Baltimore to get a feel for what was in place.

“[I’m] talking to John and getting on the same page with some of the ways he wants to call things,” Kubiak said. “It’s been an adjustment period, but the bottom line is we’ve settled down now, we know what direction we’re going.

“We’re going to have to be great teachers this year because it’s brand new. We’ve got to get going teaching as quick as we possibly can. Time is of the essence.”
