Coach Dennis Allen said Terrelle Pryor must show he can handle being the starter before simply being given the job.
"You just can't roll the dice in this league and hope something pans out," Allen said. "That's not the way it works." Even though he is cautious, Allen made it clear he is a fan of Pryor and thinks he can develop into the starter. He just won't be thrown into the starting lineup before it's time. Allen said if Pryor shows he is ready for the rigors of starting and shows the consistency to play regularly in the NFL, he will get the chance.
