John Reed-USA TODAY Sports
Last week Alabama head coach Nick Saban hosted Peyton Manning and Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase for a two day visit which the Crimson Tide coach called mutually beneficial.

While visiting with Peyton and Gase, Saban got a chance to learn more about the Broncos no-huddle offensive attack. Per ESPN:
quote:

Denver likely runs as efficient a no-huddle offense as any in the NFL. Manning, the orchestrator of the Broncos attack, threw for a league-record 55 touchdowns this past season.

Saban, for his part, has struggled some recently against no-huddle offenses. Alabama gave up a record 628 yards of offense in a 49-42 win over Texas A&M last season, and then lost in the final second to Auburn in a game that featured the Tigers running an uptempo attack that yielded 296 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.

"Since they're a no-huddle team, we had a lot of questions for them, in terms of what gives them problems and what defensive teams do that give them problems," Saban said. "That was a mutual benefit. I know it was a benefit to us. I hope it was a benefit to them as well."
