Donald Driver retiring


Read here. Sad day for Packer Nation. Donald Driver has been such a great story to follow. What an amazing guy. Who Driver is and his legacy as a player have been such a good match for the Packers. We all have enjoyed watching his improbable rise to stardom due mostly to a rare work ethic and a special ability to focus. Packer fans are no strangers to hard work – so again it makes sense that he may go down as one of the most popular Packers ever to play.

I find it particularly awesome that the image most of us have in our minds of Donald Driver when we think of him, is probably of his enormous, infectious smile. Awesome guy. We’ll miss you Donald.

    In this age of mega-egos, DD is practically an island onto himself and an honorable, memorable, and cherished one at that! THANK YOU DD! We are so blessed to have you as a part of the Packer Family!

    Yeah, I’m gonna miss Driver. In his prime, he was an amazing playmaker.

    Unless I missed somebody, that just leaves Rodgers as the only Packer on the roster from the pre-McCarthy era. Wow.

      Driver was the last guy on the roster that Ted Thompson didn’t acquire.

      I was fortunate enough to be at game a few years back against the 49ers when Driver caught a wide open pass and somehow broke 4-5 tackles to get in the endzone. Highlight of the game and was vintage Driver with how he juked and scrapped his was to end zone.

    That TD play was awesome:

    Also do a search for “Donald Driver one handed catch” for a couple more great plays (one vs Lions, one @ Rams)

    Packer Nation loves Donald Driver. The Packers are hosting a retirement party on Feb. 6th in the Lambeau Field atrium. 1000 tickets were given out free to the public on Friday morning at 9am. First, people started lining up at 2am for the tickets in sub-zero weather. Second, all the tickets were gone in less than 15 minutes. Donald Driver is loved and respected in Green Bay. I hope he finds a way to stay involved with the team either as a coach or as a goodwill ambassador.
