Out with the old option. In with the new no-huddle. The Denver Broncos are getting their first taste of the hurry-up-at-altitude offense that Peyton Manning will unleash on the NFL this fall if everything keeps going well with his surgically repaired neck. As they go through their offseason workouts, the Broncos are laying the foundation for the offense that Manning is bringing with him from Indianapolis. When they signed Manning to a $96 million deal and dealt Tim Tebow to the New York Jets, the Broncos scrapped the option-style offense they had dusted off last season to fit the left-handed scrambler's unique skill set. Now, it's all about the fast-paced switcheroo offense that's the basis of Manning's maniacal motions at the line of scrimmage as he deciphers defenses.
