What’s working…

GREAT story telling about Stuart Scott (cut 1 below)

Good analysis of Cowboys/Lions game, and perfect timing to have Garrett right after.

Consistent good energy throughout.  The is more informative, more entertaining, and simply movies more than it did even a few months ago.

What needs some attention…

Interviews and prep.  The Garrett interview felt dry and very predictable.  There was not really an “aha” moment or question.

Watch the cliches!

Recommendations…

1) Prep interviews better.  Really think about what you want to know, as specific as possible.  Think about what the guest might want to say despite himself (A Few Good Men).  Think about what you can get him to say that answers what everybody’s thinking about.

2) Ask questions that take the guest most of the way through his answer:  “Tony Romo got a huge ovation yesterday, and then raised his hands to drive the crowd even more.  He’s clearly on his way.  What’s your next conversation with him?  How do you keep him at his peak but focused?”

3) Anywhere Dat can add a “when I was playing/coaching…:” question that ends with “how are you doing that differently today?”
