Default Donald Driver

Could have called this Superbowl kneejerk reactions

It was great seeing what the Superbowl win meant to Donald Driver, who has been an incredible talent often forgotten about amongst the loud guys like Johnson and Owens. IMO he is this generations Art Monk, who just got on and did his job without having to tell the media how great he was. Maybe he will retire now? If so, what a way to go.

I don’t see any Packers retiring to be honest.

Driver is an absolutely unbelievable pro. The care he takes of his body is absolutely second to none. That’s why he’s had the career trajectory he’s had.

He is slowing down now and struggled with injuries this year, but as a #3 or #4 he’s still got plenty to offer IMO.

In particular he’s played the slot with such consistency, bravery and determination over the course of his career… great guy who does a lot of community work. He had a really rough upbringing in Houston, was homeless for some of it. Came from a dirt poor background. Just delighted to see his SB dream become a reality…

No way he retires at the dawning of this (potential) dynasty. One ring is great, but there could be another just around the corner.

DYNASTY, dynasty, dont make me puke. Teams will actually play against that team next year and beat them at will. Dynasty You need to win three or four in a decade to become a dynasty and they will certainly not.

He is a great pro, and I hope he does keep it going for a couple more years, as this Packers team most definitely is among the most talented in the league, with guys like Rodgers, Jennings, Finley, Grant, Nelson, Raji, Matthews, Williams and Collins. They have the spine of a very good team for years to come, and are in the best position of any team to be the next NFL dynasty.

No matter what a waste of space WUM wants to believe.

Have to agree there. They have as impressive a young nucleus as any team in the league with obvious good depth. On another thread here a while back asking who will be the team of the '10s I actually went with Green Bay. There's nothing to stop them winning another 2 or 3 titles this decade as long as Rodgers stays healthy.

having met DD a couple of times he is humble and down to earth. He epitomizes everything that is good about the NFL. From being homeless to superbowl winner, what a story.....

Do you like your life?

Hate on haterz...

Rodgers, Collins, Jennings, Williams are 27.

Finley, Matthews, Raji., Shields, Sitton are 23/24.

Awful lot of young pro bowl level talent... more than any team in the league.

Obviously handling success is a massive hurdle. But dynasty.talk is justified IMO.

I actually think Charles Woodson retires now. A clean break of a collarbone is a really tough one to come back from, and esp at his age. He has the ring he feels the Patriots robbed him of. Job done.

I am not sure he seems to love playing the nickel free roaming role he has atm, if he has a successful recovery eg no complications i feel he will be back next year to go for another ring.
