Answer: Yeah, I'm real excited to start the season. I'm real excited to just run behind the offensive line and the team we've got now.

Answer: Not really. A lot of them talk, but it's always just competition.
Question: What are your thoughts on Running Backs Coach Robert Gillespie?
Answer: He's a great coach. He really knows the offense. He's a really great coach, and I like being with him.
