It’s a crossover event on Man Coverage this week. We have our friend and Lions Wire editor Erik Schlitt on the show. It’s always easy to get into the weeds with a friend, so this week's episode is a bit of a supersized episode for your listening pleasure.

Erik talks with us about coming to sports writing late, his learning disability that led to him finding his way into writing, feeling the imposter syndrome that Jeremy and Mike spoke about on an earlier show, and feeling the pressure to be 100 percent professional covering the Lions while still being a fan.

Erik and Mike also go in depth on the Matt Patricia and Bob Quinn firings and try to understand what went wrong and when they knew the writing was on the wall. Erik also gives his thoughts on the immediate future of the Lions under interim head coach Darrell Bevell. This was a fun show that you’re not going to want to miss. Tune in!
