Packer Legend Donald Driver talks community, Favre & Rodgers

Donald Driver

Donald Driver is one of the most beloved Packers of All-Time in the state of Wisconsin. A 7th rd pick who worked hard and ascended to become one of the top receivers in the organization. He was fortunate enough to have played for both Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers.

This past week, Driver, as part of the Master Lock Community Champions program, sat down with Fox News, and was asked whether he would take Favre or Rodgers to be his quarterback for one more game in the NFL.

Driver spent his entire career with Green Bay, which spanned from 1999-2012. He is a Super Bowl Champion and holds the franchise’s all-time records for receptions (743) and receiving yards (10,137). So, he has plenty of experience playing with and catching passes from both Favre and Rodgers. He build great chemistry with both hall of fame quarterbacks.

Driver teamed up with Master Lock to launch their Community Champions program, which runs through September 1. The program recognizes role models through a call for online story submissions, spotlighting people who go above and beyond throughout their community. Each submission will have a chance to win big prizes.

After talking about the Master Lock Community Champions program, Driver was asked about playing with Aaron Rodgers and whether he would take Favre or Rodgers to be his quarterback for one more game in the NFL. A very interesting question and one I personally do not think you could go wrong whichever way you choose. Driver, having built great relationships with both quarterbacks, that is a tough question for him.

Driver, being the ultimate professional that he is stated, he “would go to war with Brett and Aaron”. Having played with both quarterbacks it is so hard for Driver to choose.

“I’m going to choose the man that I know built the grounds at Lambeau Field. I’m going to have to go with Bart Starr. I’m going to have to choose the man that played in different climates and different conditions when they didn’t have heaters on the sidelines. I would go to war with Bart Starr any single day,” said Driver.

All 3 quarterbacks are Hall of Fame quarterbacks and all great options to catch passes from for one NFL game. You can’t go wrong with any of them.

Interesting enough, Driver was asked about Rodgers future with the team since they drafted Jordan Love. Like the rest of us, he is speculating about Rodgers future with the organization. He stated that the only people that really know the answer to that is Rodgers and the organization.

It’s great to hear from Driver and see him still so involved in the community.
