Coming off a huge week against Tennessee, Donald Driver should have a historical day on Sunday. Closing in on a decades old record by Sterling Sharpe, Driver can again put his name in the record book.
If Driver makes just one catch, he will set the record for the most consecutive grabs in Packer history, hauling in at least one ball in the last 104 games.
Driver says he hasn’t been thinking that much about the record, but rest assured it has to be on his mind.
“I haven’t even worried about the record. I think it just gets to the point if it happens, it happens. I want to win the game, that’s my biggest thing,” Driver said. “I think after the game that’s when you start thinking about the records, stuff like that.”
In true class act fashion, double D is honored just to be mentioned along with one of the all time Packer greats.
“When you get an opportunity to accomplish certain records, you take your hat off to yourself as well as Sterling,” Driver said. “For a guy to be on top that much, I’m just happy to be mentioned in the same breath.”
It is with near certainty that we will see Driver surpass the record this weekend. Driver has been notoriously good in the Metrodome holding personal records in catches (11), yards receiving (191) and longest run from scrimmage (45 yards) all against the Vikings in the dome.
Let’s hope DD can continue that trend on Sunday in what is probably the most important game of the season.
