GREEN BAY - A longtime and beloved Green Bay Packers wide receiver has made a big time prognostication for his former team.
"The Pack should be back in the Super Bowl once again," said Donald Driver to Sports Illustrated on Thursday. "They have the talent."
He says that the keys for the team involve Aaron Rodgers and his receiving corps' productivity and solid contributions from the defense and special teams.
"Aaron has a bunch of weapons. He always has," Driver said, invoking the possibility that Randall Cobb could rise to the No. 1 receiver's role.
"Randall Cobb has all the tools."
He also said the running game would need to take a key role in making the offense more balanced.
"Those two things work hand in hand. One thing we were missing was that running game. We didnt have that solid running back. Going with Lacy and Franklin is a perfect choice."
