Note: Thread was originally titled "admits that Pinner is the better RB" but it was changed by a mod.What now, haters? I recently had a chance to sit down and talk with KJ very briefly. I have a tape recorded conversation of it, and I’d love to put it up online if any of the computer gurus out there could tell me how to do that(without paying money for webspace). Anyway, here is a word for word transcript:Me: Good afternoon, Mr. Jones. I’m a bit of a novice at the whole interview thing, but I’ll try my best. Thanks so much for taking the time to talk with me. KJ: No problem at all, man. My pleasure.Me: Talk a bit about the Lion’s offense for the coming year. In particular, the WR CorpsKJ: We just have so many great athletes here now. Teams aren’t going to be able to focus on any one of us., especially with the addittion of Mike. Those young guys will be out there and they will be good for a long time to come. I think it's really going to help the offense. Me: Is this Joey Harrington’s make or break year?KJ: Last year we ran more toward the end of the year, and thepassing game improved as a result. This year we’re going to be a bit more balanced. Joey has tremendous talent, and its just a position that takes a while to adjust to this level. I personally have full faith in him as our QB and as our leader.Me: Talk a bit about your personal goals for this season.KJ: Just to keep getting better each and every week and each and every day. And ultimately, that’s going to be measured by our team’s success. I don’t think anything short of the playoffs will do.Me: Many observers felt as if Artose Pinner deserved more of a role in the offense last year. Talk to me about him and his impact upon you.KJ: Artose has always been a great guy. And I don’t have any doubt that our offense wouldn’t miss a beat with him. I’ve definitely enjoyed working with him.Me: So who deserves to start at RB?KJ: Oh, I don’t concern myself with stuff like that. Artose has many skills that I envy, and like I said, he’d be a great back if given the opportunity. I’m just excited for our team this year.Me: What was the biggest adjustment you had to make to the NFL last year and what improvements can we expect to see from you this coming year?KJ: Its just so much stuff to know in the NFL. I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t miss some assignments early on last year. But Coach Rathman was just amazing to work with. Even when I was hurt, he was there with me helping me study. I just hope to continue to improve in all aspects of my game and hopefully be known as one of the best Rbs in the game.Me: Ok, thanks a lot for the time Mr. Jones. Have a good afternoon.KJ: My pleasure.Hate to say I told you so, but I told you so! Haha!
