Saban: Manziel Reminds Him of Flutie


As Nick Saban puts the LSU win behind him, he and his team might face an even larger challenge on offense this weekend with Johnny Football, better known as Johnny Manziel.

Manziel has impressed the coach with his play this year. He even compared him to former Boston College quarterback Doug Flutie whom Alabama fans remember all too well.

"Johnny Manziel is a terrific player. He can do a lot of things, creates a lot of plays, extends a lot of plays. He's a great scrambler. A very effective passer. They're in the spread, no-huddle, going fast. He does a really good job of executing it."

Manziel has put up some impressive numbers this season already breaking SEC records for total offense in a game by a player twice this season.

The dual threat QB is the main reason Texas A & M has found more success than their counter-part Missouri. No one has been able to stop him, but he has been slowed down in his two losses this season to LSU and Florida.

We'll see if the Tide defense can do the same.
