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.


You know.. a guy like Driver would really appreciate that story.

It amazes me just how intricate in nature the game is woven into the American fabric. Many a forever memory has ties to the game. Thanks for sharing.

DD has been a great player and a classy individual.
I hope the Packers find a place for him in the organization. He would be a great ambassador for the Packers, much like Bart Starr has been over the years.
thanks Post received 1 applause.

Well, I think it ensures a long term relationship with the Packers and hopefully something in which Driver is very active with the organization and fans.

One can point directly to the Brett exit in terms of how it affected Driver's end of career decisions.

thanks for sharing this. I remember watching Cardinal's baseball with my Dad as he was slipping away. I came into his room and the game would be on but his eyes were closed. We would talk a bit and listen to the game a bit. That was a very difficult summer.

We use the phrase "Packer People" alot. Some of it is bullshit; some players are the example. Donald would definitely be my definition of the embodiment of the phrase.

A sad, but happy day in Packers news. Donald Driver will always be known as one of the greatest players in Packers history as well as the greatest person off the field. This guys character is just amazing. I am also hopefully he comes back to the Packers in some sort of coaching/small time front office role.

Not many players get to play their entire careers with one organization and call it quits with them after so many years today. This is certainly a special day for Driver and his family.

Illy.....this makes me appreciate the fact that I got to spend a game with you and your Dad. He was a great man, and did a great job raising you!

Driver will always be one of my favorite players. Even though he was a "star", he STILL (unlike many players today) took time for us fans, signing autographs and talking with us.
He's an example of how NFL players SHOULD be!

One of the all-time Packers. He'll definitely go down as among the most popular players in team history.
