Widely regarded as one of the greatest pro football players of all time, Peyton Manning has a huge fan following and is idolized as the best quarterback of all time by his supporters.
However, his children are surprisingly not on board about putting their father above the others, as Manning recently revealed that his twin kids- Marshall Williams and Mosley Thompson are huge fans of Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes.
Peyton Manning says his kids are “decked out in Chiefs jerseys”
In a recent episode of Peyton Manning’s “Detail” show on ESPN+, the two-time Super Bowl champion was analyzing Patrick Mahomes’ performance in the AFC Championship match against Buffalo Bills.
During the show, Manning dropped the ultimate bombshell, saying that his kids are huge fans of Mahomes as well as Tyreek Hill and have a huge collection of Chiefs jerseys, rather than having their father’s Colts and Broncos shirts.
“My kids are decked out in Chiefs jerseys,” Manning said in the show, “They got Mahomes on, they got Tyreek Hill. (When) your kids are wearing Chiefs jerseys, you’ve just got to suck it up.”
“We go skiing this past weekend,” the five-time MVP went on, “and my son’s in a Mahomes jersey to ski in and his buddy Zack is wearing a Mahomes Texas Tech jersey.”
“I mean everywhere I go, it’s Mahomes, Mahomes, Mahomes. Tells you what kind of great player he is if he’s got some huge 9-year-old fans out here in Denver, Colorado,” Manning added. (H/T Broncos Wire)
Its no wonder that the growing kids of Manning have picked Mahomes as their idol. The 2020 Super Bowl winner and MVP has been regarded as one of the greatest QBs of all time.
The 25-year-old powered the Chiefs to their second straight Super Bowl appearance this year as well, only to be surprised by Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Earlier this week, Mahomes and his fiancee Brittany Matthews themselves welcomed their little girl Sterling Skye Mahomes and also shared the baby’s first picture. It will be an interesting wait for the NFL fans to see if Sterling grows up to be a fan of her father, or the top quarterback of the concurrent NFL seasons.
