Kerry took a break from his off season training in Orlando today to answer some fan questions:
What is your favorite play to run?
ANY PLAY THAT WILL GET OUR TEAM INTO THE ENDZONE. I LOVE PLAYS WITH A RUN/PASS OPTION.
From Tyler Golding,
Hey Kerry, I have wrote in a couple of times now. I recently read about your new contract...I really do not know what to say. You must have a heart for the Lord. As a Christian, If I were in your shoes, I would still find it hard to do something so amazing and generous...you have set an AMAZING example for so many of us. I am sure that God is so proud of you, and that is the most important thing. I have never really talked to you before, but I just know you\'re a class act and a HUGE addition to this country and especially this province. Keep up the amazing work, blessings man.
THANKS TYLER, I TRULY BELIEVE THAT WHICH I GAVE UP WILL COME BACK IN THE FORM OF A CHAMPIONSHIP AND MORE. MY FAITH IS IN GOD NOT MAN. BE BLESSED.
From Dale Popwitch,

From Kevin Schulz,
Not so much a question as an accalade for the pay cut, you epitomize what Saskatchewan is about- team first. I only hope that you play here for a long time and are so successful that the contract you had will be given back when the cap allows so. You have made yourself one of my (and others) favourites by doing this. All the best to you. Squid
THANKS, I BELIEVE THIS TEAM WILL BE SPECIAL THIS YEAR. I KNOW GOD WILL BLESS ME WITH MORE THAN WHAT I GAVE UP. GOD IS TRULY A GREAT GOD. THAT IS WHY MY TRUST IS IN HIM. GO RIDERS.
From Rick Hebert,
Hey Kerry, I am from Lake Charles, La. and followed your amaising road to fame and was wondering if you ever come back to L.C. to attend some McNeese Games and if so when do you plan on attending?
IT IS HARD TO ATTEND MCNEESE GAMES BECAUSE WE ARE NORMALLY IN SEASON. I WILL BE PLAYING IN A GOLF TOURNAMENT ON MARCH 10TH IN LAKE CHARLES AT GREY PLANTATION. THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT.

Hello Kerry how are you, you probabley don\'t remember me but I went to McNeese with you and watched you play football. I just was wondering how you were doing, I was reading some of your stats and what you do for the community. Keep up the good work May The Lord Bless You who's Name is Jesus. Take care man and remember to put God first because with out Him we are nothing.
THANKS FOR CONTINUING TO FOLLOW MY CAREER. ONCE A COWBOY ALWAYS A COWBOY. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND ALL THAT YOU DO.
From Will Tudoroff,
Kerry: Although I am a die hard Tiger Cat fan, I love watching you play football. Your enthusiasm and athletisicm are a joy to watch. My question is: Did you ever wear #24 for the Rhein Fire or did you just wear #27?
I WORE #27 WITH RHEIN FIRE.
I am a prospect looking for a place to train for my pro day. How do I get information about training sessions for pro football prospects?

From Ewen MacDonald,
Kerry, First off, it is great having you as the Rider QB. You had a very good season and showed your character by fighting through what I'm sure was a painful knee injury. Thanks for your leadership, talent, grit, community support and especially for being a good person! It is easy, as a sports fan and a die-hard Rider fan, to get caught up in wins and losses and stats, etc. But most important is team spirit and being the best people we can be. Thanks for being you! We appreciate it! I am a loyal Rider fan who now lives in Toronto. I took my 6 yr old back home this summer and enjoyed watching you and the team beat Calgary at Mosaic stadium. The next day at the practice field you were coming off with your then newly banged up knee and were kind enough to let me take your picture with my young son. I really appreciate your kindness and for being approachable. Thanks again!! My question to you is: What improvements do you think the team must make to get even better and hopefully challenge for the Grey cup next season?
I THANKS THE TEAM IS ADDING A LOT OF TALENT AT DIFFERENT POSITION THIS OFFSEASON AND THOSE ADDITION WILL MAKE US A BETTER FOOTBALL TEAM IN 2007. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SUPP0RT. IT WILL BE EXCITING IN RIDERVILLE THIS YEAR.
From Chris Flaman,
Hi Kerry I am a big Rider fan that now lives in Vancouver and I just want to thank you for a fun season. It was up and down but I loved watching you play especially when you weren\'t injured you were so fun to watch then. It was tough being a Rider fan in the dome last week though but us Rider fans love our team as I am sure you know by now. I just want to thank you for being our guy this year and I hope you have a wonderful offseason. Lets get a cup next year. I guarantee if you get us a cup next year that there will be more than the 100-200 fans that greeted the stinkin Lions at the airport this year (what a joke). If you win it wouldn\'t matter what the temperature is the airport would be packed. Thanks Kerry. PS Do you have anywhere a fan can buy autographed pictures or memorbillia or anything like that.
I AM IN THE PROCESS OF WORKING ON SOMETHING WHERE FANS CAN PURCHASE AUTOGRAPH MEMORBILLIA. KEEP CHECKING MY WEBSITE AS THE SEASON APPROACHES. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT.
Hey Kerry, it's almost December and that means playoff time down here in the states for our McNeese Cowboys!!! The Cowboys started off the season rough with a start of 1-3, and letting go head coach Tommy Tate. But, they managed to win the southland conference title outright and get into the playoffs once again, and finished the season 7-4. They are on a five game win streak and they face the Montana Griz once again in the first round. McNeese was looking for a new head coach, but considering the fact that the interim head coach led them to a conference title and the playoffs, they gave him the job. My question to you is, has McNeese ever approached you for the job? Have you ever considered coaching after you are done playing? And if you have considered coaching, would you come back home to McNeese? Everyone will always remember Kerry Joseph down here, and we need someone who can lead our cowboys to a national title.
I WILL ALWAYS BE A COWBOY. I HAVE NOT THOUGHT ABOUT COACHING YET, I JUST TRY TO FOCUS ON MY CAREER RIGHT NOW, BUT IF I DO DECIDE TO COACH MCNEESE WOULD BE A GREAT PLACE TO START.
From Greg Lowe,
I have been a big fan of yours since you lead the McNeese Cowboys in the Southland Conference. I think you are a great quarterback and a great athlete. Any chance that you will ever make the jump back to the NFL? I live in Lake Charles and would really like to see you back up Drew Breeze in New Orleans.
I WOULD LOVE TO GET A CHANCE TO PLAY IN NEW ORLEANS. I JUST CONTINUE TO PRAY AND WORK HARD. GOD WILL LEAD ME WHERE HE WANTS ME TO BE. IT SURELY WOULD BE NICE TO PLAY IN LA.
From Rick James,
Have you ever played in as noisy a venue as BC Place at playoff time? Have a great off season. Stay strong.
I HAVE PLAYED IN A LOUDER STADIUM, BUT NEVER AS A QUARTERBACK. THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
