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.
