Donald Driver On the Bears Receivers

4

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.

    Two things:
    Kevin Payne SUCKS.
    And the Packers will win more games than your Bears this year. Book it.

    Why does Payne suck?

    And put your money where your mouth is on the 2nd item.

    The Bears may not have a big name in their WR core but who says this group couldn’t make a splash? Donald Driver, he plays for the Packers so of course he’s going to talk shit. I was dissapointed with the Bears on the fact that they didn’t hold on to Brandon Lloyd. Yeah he was hurt last year but I would’ve liked to see what he could’ve done now that the Bears have an MVP caliber quarterback. Regardless we still have the speed with hester and the great hands in Greg Olsen. Its also a good chance for the rookies to step up

    Payne’s just another in a long line of overrated Bears defensive players.

    I’d love to make that bet, but it doesn’t make much sense to bet someone I see once a year. :) BTW, I’m golfing at Indian Lakes this Thursday, if you’re interested in playing.
