Zane Beadles and Interviews

26 Jan

AFC Championship - New England Patriots v Denver Broncos

Last week I spoke to Broncos starting left guard Zane Beadles for TDdaily. The Q+A went up on Friday so, if you get a minute, go check it out.

Usually I feel pretty confident in my interviews and the questions I ask subjects. I try to stay away from cliches and have fun with them. This time, though, I’m not so sure. On the one hand, I would love to have just talked football with Beadles, and about the Seahawks and on the field stuff. The problem—which you’ll be able to see by reading his answer to the first question I asked him—is that Beadles clearly had no interest in discussing anything real about the Seahawks. The answer I got was one that it sounded like he’s used every week this season.

Then again, that’s also where it’s on me to figure out a way to break down that wall. Instead of going for it, though, I decided to pivot and ask him more light-hearted questions. Normally, I prefer this strategy, but this time, with the Super Bowl coming up, well, not so sure I made the right call.

Anyway, just some rambling. What’s done is done–and Beadles was a cool guy and gave me some good stuff, so I hope you enjoy.
