Peyton Manning reveals how he convinced Patrick Mahomes to feature in Netflix’s ‘Quarterback’ – “Last thing we wanted to be was a distraction”



Patrick Mahomes is featuring in Netflix’s documentary named “Quarterback” which displays the life of NFL QBs during the season. The documentary which is set to release on July 12, also features Kirk Cousins and Marcus Mariota along with Mahomes.

Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions teamed up with NFL Films to produce this documentary and fans are excited about it. Manning recently revealed how he convinced Mahomes to star in the series, and it displayed how humble the Chiefs quarterback is despite all of his accolades. Manning spoke about it with the New York Post.

“The last thing we wanted to be was a distraction, and that was our promise.” Manning said. “I could tell that Patrick wanted to do it, so his kids would know what he used to do and what his life is like, because they’re so young now.

“To tell you about the respect that he has for the organization, he said that I should talk to coach (Andy) Reid first. He said, ‘No Peyton, you tell coach Reid… It was very telling. Here you’ve got the best player in the NFL right now, that could probably say this is what I’m doing, I don’t care whether you like it or not. Instead, he wants me to ask his head coach for permission.

“There’s a trust factor. I promised all these guys that anything they didn’t want in it wasn’t gonna be in it, These guys had to be comfortable with everything. At the same time, we felt like we wanted to tell the story of what it’s like to be a quarterback and all that goes with it.”

Peyton Manning’s comments provide evidence that Patrick Mahomes holds Andy Reid in the highest regard possible. In a manner analogous to that of Travis Kelce, the quarterback for the Chiefs never puts his franchise in the public eye without first receiving permission from its coach.

Last season, the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl, and it will be interesting to see how the documentary depicts Mahomes playing through injury to lead his team to glory.
