Welp folks, best case scenario right here. And I don't know why it should be a surprise, a class guy stays classy to the end. I guess I'm still a little jaded given what happened with the Favre debacle but Driver proves once again why he is everything that it turned out Brent wasn't. Driver easily has some tokens left to play somewhere else but he cared more about his legacy and about Packer fans. Without question a top 3 all time favorite Packer for me. And in case you forgot given his low productivity this season he retires high scorer in franchise history in
- Receptions all time
- Seasons with 50+ Receptions
- Consecutive games with a reception
- Receiving Yards
- Seasons with 1,000 plus yards
And that's in a franchise that includes guys like Don Hutson and Sterling Sharpe. No biggie. Not to mention he had a million dollar smile at all times, overcame terrible odds to become an all time great and got me to watch an entire season of Dancing With the Stars. It sounds like his press conference is going to be on February 6th (Wed) and 11am and tickets will actually be sold for it starting tomorrow (Feb 1st) at 9am. We'll miss you Donald! An all time great player. An all time great person.
