Donald Driver On the Bears Receivers
Let the season begin. The first bulletin board post will come from none other than a Green Bay Packer, Donald Driver. From PFT:
In a blunt comment that’s certain to become bulletin-board material in the Chicago Bears’ locker room, Driver gave a candid assessment of the Bears’ receivers during an interview with NFL Sirius Radio, per Bob Wolfley of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
“I think Chicago did a great job, and Lovie Smith went out there and got Jay Cutler to lead this team, but one thing they don’t have is they don’t have the receiver group,” Driver said. ”They have the running back, they have the offensive line and they have a great defense.
“But you’re going to have to need receivers to make plays down the field, and they don’t have that right now.”
I don’t necessarily disagree. But I also don’t play for the Bears’ biggest rival. Whether these types of statements matter or not can’t really be qualified. But should Kevin Payne lay out Driver in game 1, perhaps he will mention it to Driver as he lay on the turf.
Driver should have remembered 2 things: the Pack went 6-10 last year and lost 4 of their last 5.
