What's he going to do Buckeye - beef up and play tight end? He's too fucking slow to play WR in the NFL, period. He also drops too many passes, but always gets a pass from Packer fans like you. This is not personal for me, but it sure seems to be for you and Packer fans like you. How long do we have keep up the honoring what they did in the past? Looks like another 2nd round receiver drafted this year to me. Nelson, Cobb, Jones, ?, Boykin, and Ross. That question mark won't be Donald Driver.


Yup.

Check my sig. I'm a HUGE DD fan. But he's done. This year, he looked like a #5 WR. He's just gonna get worse next year.

People don't get younger. They get older. Life isn't fair. We all get older and we all die.

I don't even see Driver making da Bears next year.

So, let's get him a Ring for his farewell tour.

The only pass I gave him was if Ted and coach Mike wanted him I was fine with that.

B.S. the only other poster that ever agreed with me on this type of thing was Nonstop. He and I always agreed on a tough decision like cutting loose a popular player for the good of the team and the cap. The bottom line is that this is a business.

bullshit to you. Don't tell me what I said. You can go back and look at my old posts. I consistently stated that I figure Ted knows what he is doing. I am more than happy to differ to him when it comes to personnel decisions. I always said if DD makes the team I am fine with that. A couple of years ago I said he can help teach the younger receivers. Last year I said he could help a few of the younger guys. (Jenkins, Jones and Nelson had been around long enough by then.) This year I didn't say that at all.

Yeah, but you have to blast through a mountain to get it, besides those dumb fucks in Minnesota don't know the difference. They're the ones buying the power.

I love how Dakota likes taking all the credit for being a dick.

We've all said it. Hell, I said it earlier this year and I got DD in my sig. I said if he makes the team, cool. If he didn't make the team, well, I trust Mike McCarthy's judgement.

I may have been slow about Brett Favre, but wasn't slow about DD.

And I think I even remember WPR saying it too.

Quote:
Head Coach Mike McCarthy on Sunday discussed the difficulty in leaving veteran WR Donald Driver on the inactive list for what might have been his final game at Lambeau Field. It was the fourth time Driver has been inactive this season, with the three occurrences in the regular season coming in Weeks, 13, 15 and 17.

“Donald Driver is a class act to say the least,” McCarthy said. “He’s a pro’s pro. He does everything you ever ask of him. We’ve had conversations of late here, … and he’s handled it very well. He’s an excellent teammate. Everyone clearly understands what he means to the organization and what he’s done.

“He’s out there preparing every day, getting ready to play. He may have an opportunity this week. We’ll see how it shakes down. Those are very difficult decisions to make, when you have a healthy 53, to get to 46.”

McCarthy pointed out that the final decisions for the gameday active roster often come down to special teams, and rookie LB Terrell Manning was activated for Saturday night’s playoff game against Minnesota. Manning proceeded to earn a game ball on special teams from the coaches as well as the “Big Hit” award, McCarthy said.

“That’s why you have to make those kinds of decisions,” McCarthy said. “That’s part of the way it sorts out in game-planning and obviously special teams plays into it.”

A couple of other notes from McCarthy’s Sunday press conference:

–He mentioned it only in passing, but McCarthy made reference to rookie RT Don Barclay playing his best game to date. Barclay started the last four games of the regular season and was making his playoff debut.

–The only injury reported from the game was a hamstring injury to TE Jermichael Finley. McCarthy said the medical staff has told him it’s “nothing of a serious nature,” but he did not address Finley’s status for this week.

No, I have to be a dick because some people refuse to take off their G&G goggles and try and put this fandom guilt trip on everything which is BS. DD should not have been on the roster this season because you can throw a rook in there playing for league minimum instead of $1.2 million.

well you are wrong again because your bitch is not with the rest of the fans but with Ted and Mike.

I never did hear where Nonstop went. My imagination wants me to think he fulfilled his (apparent) life long dream of practicing gynecology, and just forgot about us little folk as he pursued his dreams in-depth, so to speak. Flapper

I was wrong on Jones because he is starting to become the player he always should have been, but I haven't been wrong about DD. My bitch is with no one, I just give my opinion and then get jumped by people who sleep with DD jerseys on.

I don't have an issue with DD not playing.. not in the least. My opinion is just this is not how I wish he would have gone out.

A player, at least in my opinion, wants to play his last game at home. I worked my ass of just to take one snap after the wreck. My peace with it.

Maybe he was in error coming back.. but I think he believed he could still help this team and play in the Big Game this time in full.

DD is most certainly welcome on this field in place of ANY WR on this team for this playoff try, in my world.

Any single one of them, taking all pluses and minuses of doing that into account.


the best one in the business, this corps-imo, he fits just fine (even at) his age.

oh no sweet pea. You in so many words you are insinuating that DD is on the team because the fans would be outraged if he was not there.

IMO, a fitting end for DD's career would be the following:

1. He is active for the Super Bowl this year.
2. He catches one pass, what turns out to be the winning (but not the last) TD in a Packer victory.
3. That pass is the pass he was at one time better than anyone at, the quick slant from the slot, which he turns from an 8 yard gain into a 65 yard TD gallop.

That, IMO,would be fitting.

I have no reason to think that Donald Driver is not fully capable of doing precisely that, if given the chance to do so.

I'd like to see that, too.
