Chiefs coach Andy Reid introduces Patrick Mahomes to Packers legend Brett Favre
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid had Green Bay Packers Hall of Famer Brett Favre in the team facility to speak to Patrick Mahomes. Reid was a coach of Favre back in 1997 and 1998 and the two developed a very special relationship that has continued to this day.
Reid said that he wanted Mahomes and Favre to just chat, and also said he would like to start a rumor that Favre could come back.
”It was an opportunity for him to meet Patrick and talk with him,” Reid said via Chiefs Wire. “They could share experiences with each other. I had an opportunity to shoot the breeze with him a little bit, got him some Q39 to welcome him to Kansas City, then we went from there. It was all good. It was nice to see him. He’s in great shape, looks like he still can play. Let’s start that rumor.”
Reid thought it was a good chance for Mahomes to talk to someone who has had a lot of success in the NFL and how he handled it. Mahomes is only in his third year in the league, but the hope is he can have as much success as Favre had during his career.
”There are not a lot of people that walk in those shoes that you have an opportunity to talk to as an NFL quarterback,” said Reid. “It gave him an opportunity to talk to a guy that has already been through it and had success at it – how you handle all of those things, those levels of success that you have. It’s also good for him to see that Brett’s a guy. He’s a good person and still has fun. All of those things. Humble guy. I think all of that’s good.”
Talking to Favre can only have positive results, and who knows, maybe one day Mahomes will be going back into locker rooms talking to young rising superstars.
