Interview: Kyle Meinke talks the life of a beat writer, Lions’ Week 1 collapse

Get to know MLive’s Kyle Meinke.

NFL: Detroit Lions at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

On the second episode of Man Coverage we have MLive beat writer Kyle Meinke on the podcast.

We talked to Kyle about his early days in journalism. He told a great story about his first pro sports assignment—which turned out to be one of the most memorable Detroit sports moments of all time. Then he gave us the breakdown of what life is really like being a beat writer and even tells the story of how a lot of ice in Green Bay led to an injury and a crazy offseason.

Mike and Kyle also get into the Lions collapse against the Bears, Matt Patricia’s post game comments about the Malcolm Butler moment and how this team takes moments like this, and what it takes to rebound.

Then listen as Kyle gets the easiest lightning round question ever and find out if he believes quarterback wins are a real thing. Check it out!
