Driver has announced that his against-all-odds career has come to an end, with an official retirement ceremony slated for next Wednesday, Feb. 6, in the Lambeau Field Atrium.


read the rest of the story as well.

DD is easily one of my all time favorite players. I will not have trouble wearing his jersey to games for many years to come.

The guy was an exceptional player and remains an exceptional person. We are so fortunate to have had the opportunity to watch him play for the Packers, through quite an amazing career. I am SO glad he won a SB with us! Thank you Double D!

SO gratifying to read this. Donald has been one of my favorite Packers for years, and I'm glad I won't have to see him languishing in that hideous purple uniform...

I'm gonna miss him. In his prime he was such a beast. He should be a packers receiver coach.

no they need an OL coach very badly. He could not do any worse than Campen.

He should actually be a coach. I think some of Greg Jennings' success has been learning from Driver the moves he makes for all that YAC. I've seen other Packers receivers do it too. The only drawback is that there is sometimes too much dancing, but the Packers receivers have been relatively successful with YAC which I believe is thanks to Donald Driver.

Our WRs actually block pretty well, maybe DD should take over the position [grin1]

everytime i think of donald driver, it takes me back to the last Sunday before my dad passed away.
he was laying on the couch semi-comatose while i watched the Packers play. you see, i just had to be with my daddy during one more game.
favre threw a TD pass, i hollered, & my dad opened his eyes & said "was that driver?" i told him yes dad - driver did it again. he said "i really like that kid - he sure can catch". then closed his eyes again & went back in his coma-like state.
a precious moment i will never forget.
thank you so much for the memories 80.

musccy (1h) : Sorry, but no to shields. 9 mil better spent elsewhere.
uffda udfa (1h) : Sam Shields still having headaches but wants to continue playing.
uffda udfa (1h) : Not harsh. Another failure and playoff embarrassment.
uffda udfa (1h) : Aaron cried a little when asked about Jordy playing today.
GoPack1984 (2h) : Dismal season? I think that's too harsh.
uffda udfa (2h) : Packers should have never been 4-6. Dismal season.
GoPack1984 (2h) : ...with the current defense.
GoPack1984 (2h) : Good season. Great rebound from 4-6. Would have loved to have seen them go to the Super Bowl and win, but I don't know if that was realistic
uffda udfa (2h) : •thanks Shakespeare.
The_Green_Ninja (2h) : Mike at the end of the day is with the team every day and knows what is needed and not needed. Don't be surprised if Mike helps push the cha
Nonstopdrivel (2h) : Bated*
uffda udfa (2h) : It won't change until Ted is gone. I await that day with baited breath.
uffda udfa (2h) : Nobody has ever lost a championship game by as big of a margin as us. Title Town revolt.
uffda udfa (2h) : Did I hear wrong or was that the biggest beatdown in championship game history? Nice.
Nonstopdrivel (2h) : ndedly fill in all the holes on the roster.
Nonstopdrivel (2h) : I do get the same sort of complacent vibe from the Packers front office that cost Bill Polian his job. You can't rely on the QB to single-ha
The_Green_Ninja (2h) : Thomas Brady has been given tools his whole career. It's up to the Packers to start doing the same.
The_Green_Ninja (2h) : As much as I loved brett, Aaron is right. We need more tools and HE is the QB that deserves the tools
shield4life (2h) : & management
shield4life (2h) : Blame the coaching
The_Green_Ninja (2h) : This is near the same time Brett started saying the same stuff.
uffda udfa (3h) : That is exactly what Aaron is saying. We don't do what needs to be done to win. Same song over and over.
uffda udfa (3h) : Aaron is a troll and a hater and doesn't understand the game. Who is he to say such things?
Zero2Cool (3h) : Probably reading into it wrong, but I think he's saying to front office. Do. More!
Zero2Cool (3h) : Rodgers says "We just gotta make sure we're going all-in every year to win....we can take a big step this off-season"
uffda udfa (3h) : MM: We ran into a buzzsaw today. LOL. U came with no tools at all.
hardrocker950 (4h) : They showed up and played, we crawled in and died...
mojaveson (4h) : Kudos to the Falcons. I hope they win the Super Bowl.
uffda udfa (4h) : All credit to ATL. Not a word about needing to get better.
Zero2Cool (4h) : Ran out of talent, something we didn't have a plethora of on defense (my opinion)
uffda udfa (4h) : MM: Ran out of gas but proud of his guys.
