"Quarterbacks break out every year, because it's the National Football League," Miller said Thursday, via the Denver Post. "Everybody here has talent, it doesn't matter the string, and everybody's been 'the man' at some point. They just have to harness that energy.
"Gardner Minshew, no one knew he was going to have the type of year he's having right now, but he got a chance and he took advantage of it. I'm hoping for some of the same magic to happen with Brandon."
Allen has not taken a regular-season snap. His preseason action has just been OK, including throwing zero touchdowns on 69 attempts with the Rams earlier this year. Allen was "the man" at Arkansas, starting three seasons and compiling 7,463 yards and 64 TDs, including 3,440 yards and 30 touchdowns his senior season in 2015. Allen, like Minshew, was a sixth-round pick by Jacksonville in 2016, but never worked his way up the depth chart.
