Chiefs RB Larry Johnson Wants to Break the Franchise Rushing Record

Of course, any back wants to hold the franchise record for rushing but the fact that this is something that is helping drive Chiefs RB Larry Johnson is great.  Yes, it's the new (and improved?) LJ, even if he doesn't like hearing that. 

He's 432 yards away from passing Priest Holmes on the team's all-time rushing leaderboard, a topic we discussed three months ago.

LJ took a few minutes to talk to the media following today's afternoon practice.  The audio comes courtesy of 610 Sports.  Below are some of the highlights:

On the 'new' Chiefs:

This is great being with Pioli and Todd Haley and of course Maurice [Carthon].  They definitely kept everyting good and wiped a clean slate with me. It's been fun with those three guys. Each of them have great personalities that you vibe off of and it's easy to come to work this way.

On personal and team goals:

This year I'm coming up on that mark to possibly break the all time Chiefs rushing record. It's a lot of things as far as getting back to the playoffs, a Super Bowl. There's a lot of things on my plate that I'm trying to achieve, not only for myself, but most importantly for the team.

On the Cassel, LJ combo:

It's going to be a lot better because then it's going to be harder to put two safeties in the box.  A lot of teams we play have great safeties so being able to take those out of the picture with the running game then coming along with the passing game it's going to be a good one-two punch.

On fast-paced practices:

In the game it's going to be a lot slower but it's great to practice at this pace because your mind is always working a lot faster in the game.

On the offensive scheme iin 2009:

No, we're not going to be tied to one thing. Obviously, Todd Haley coming in with Chan, we have two great offensive minds and throwing  around a lot of ideas to make this team not one dimensional.
