Packers WR Donald Driver Prefers Aaron Rodgers Over Brett Favre

Thursday November 17th, 2011

Longtime Packers wide receiver Donald Driver has played with two Super Bowl winning quarterbacks in Green Bay, however the 13-year veteran reportedly prefers Aaron Rodgers over Packers legend Brett Favre, according to USA Today.

"I've played with two quarterbacks," Driver told USA Today. "One just went out there and did what he did, and he wasn't patient at all. But Aaron takes what the defense gives him, and that's the type of guy you want." Driver played with Favre from 1999-2007 with the Packers. His best season in that stretch was in 2006 when he hauled in 92 catches for eight touchdowns. His best season with Rodgers under center was 2008 when he grabbed 74 catches for five touchdowns. Rodgers, however, took over at quarterback after Driver was already 33-years-old.
