The Netflix hit “Quarterback” followed the on-field and off-field lives of Patrick Mahomes, Kirk Cousins and Marcus Mariota. It could hardly have picked three better options, and viewers agreed. It was one of the 10 highest-rated shows in its debut week, July 12. 

The show was deemed such a success, that executive producer Peyton Manning – a decent QB in his own right – announced that Season 2 was already in the works. It may be tough to top a QB show headlined by the best QB in the game, but Manning and Netflix will certainly try, and people will certainly watch. 

Bookies.com veteran oddsmaker Adam Thompson has revealed his hypothetical NFL betting odds as to which three QBs will be featured for Season 2 of “Quarterback.”

How Netflix Picks QBs for "Quarterback"

Season 1 of “Quarterback” was a hit for Netflix, and it’s easy to see why. The producers got lucky with their three selections. Mahomes, of course, won the NFL Most Valuable Player award, then led the Kansas City Chiefs to a Super Bowl championship. 

Cousins battled injuries as he led the Minnesota Vikings to their first NFC North title since 2017. Mariota, meanwhile, struggled to fight off rookie Desmond Ridder, and was ultimately benched and left the team, adding drama on the other side of the spectrum. 

The show was lauded for its personal touches and the QBs themselves seemed OK with how their stories were handled. There will be QBs – and their agents and managers – who will want to build their brand by being featured on the show. 

Manning indicated on the Pat McAfee Show that he’ll be shooting for variety of signal-callers for Season 2. “I would love to document three different types of quarterbacks again at three different points of their careers."

So, perhaps we can expect a veteran winding down his career, a star in his prime and a newcomer learning the ropes.

Which Veteran QB Will Be on “Quarterback”

Josh Allen checks a lot of the boxes. He’s a veteran All-Pro talent still seeking that first Super Bowl berth. He has had a ton of success, but still has huge goals yet to reach. It shouldn’t be a shock if Allen is the first QB Manning calls for Season 2. 

Jimmy Garoppolo is everyone’s favorite superhunk QB – and now he’s in Las Vegas with the iconic Raiders. He’s dealt with injuries and doubters who says he’s relied on the talent around him to be successful. There are a lot of reasons to choose Garoppolo, if you’re Netflix. 

Speaking of doubters, everyone seems to have an opinion on Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray. He’s just 25, coming off a serious knee injury and a disastrous 4-13 season. He’s called out coaches and management, so it’s put-up or shut-up time for Murray. 

That would be great to watch on the inside. Murray seems the type that would relish the pressure of doing it all with behind-the-scenes cameras catching it all. 

If getting the next Super Bowl champion not named Mahomes is the goal, Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles makes a lot of sense. He took second in NFL MVP voting last season, he’s a dual-threat standout and his Eagles are favored to win the NFC and get back to the Super Bowl. 

Second-year pro Sam Howell is getting the keys to the Washington Commanders offense. He played in just one game last year due to injury, and could be a great “learning the ropes” option for the show. The Commanders could use some positive PR, too. 

Jordan Love is just getting his start with the Green Bay Packers, and he’s replacing one of the all-time greats in Aaron Rodgers. It would probably make for great watching. The question is, would Love want to do it, and would the Packers want that additional pressure? 

Justin Herbert is only going into his third season, but he’s no up-and-comer. In his three seasons he’s won Rookie of the Year, made a Pro Bowl and finished Top 10 in MVP voting. He’s just hitting his stride and could be a solid choice. The NFL might balk at Herbert, since he’s reportedly dating NFL Network analyst Taylor Bisciotti. 

Tua Tagovailoa would be intriguing on several levels. His history of injuries, including concussions, are well-documented. But he’s a super talent on a team built to win now. His father has openly bragged about whipping his son and forcing him to throw left-handed as a child, adding another level of possible drama. 

Joe Burrow is further down the list. The Cincinnati Bengals star is a poster boy for the NFL, but he also presents an aura that, frankly, might be diminished if we see his daily life. 

The Field includes a slew of veterans and youngsters who either likely aren’t interested in such a thing anymore – Aaron Rodgers, Lamar Jackson, and Matthew Stafford highlight that group – or teams that may balk at their young stars getting the added distraction of the camera. 

That includes the crop of rookies such as Bryce Young of the Carolina Panthers, C.J. Stroud of the Houston Texans and Anthony Richardson of the Indianapolis Colts, part of the new wave of dual-threat QBs.
