Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak: We need to make some mistakes

As we draw nearer to training camp, offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak is "throwing the kitchen sink" at his offense, seeing what sticks, and assessing what each player does best.

Kubiak acknowledged his efforts in not trying to overkill the troops with information — which is difficult, because he's installing a fresh brand into the offense's program. The West Coast scheme is something that Kubiak sported in the league since he helped win the Super Bowl as a quarterbacks coach in 1994 with the San Francisco 49ers.

The team's official website writer Garrett Downing wrote that "there was was a point when the offense ran the same play multiple times to make sure they had it mastered" during Tuesday's practice.

I’m going to throw a lot at you. We need to make some mistakes. Let’s go make them hard, and we’ll figure it out and we’ll make sure that during opening day we’re doing what we do best. I think that’s been important and they’ve responded to that.

Ravens have thus far been very receptive, learning an offense that features multiplicity and variance of formations to keep defenses off-guard, a mobile quarterback who waggles and rolls out of the pocket, executes hard run-actions and has ball-catchers constantly running crossing routes.

Kubiak did though, express that the key thing is improving their work habits. He's also pleased to have "almost everybody" come out to the offseason training activities.

In Bruce Lee's words, "I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times."
