Donald Driver is about the closest former teammate of Brett Favre’s remaining on the Green Bay Packers squad, but that won’t stop him from admitting the obvious, that the Pack made the right move in letting Favre go in favor of Aaron Rodgers.
Indeed, it’s an obvious point.
Favre ended up injured and out of the playoffs--and probably, finally finished with the game. The Packers steamrolled through three road games in the playoffs--at Philadelphia, Atlanta and Chicago--to emerge as the NFC representative for the Super Bowl. Considering, Driver put any allegiance he has to Favre down, to admit what seems as clear as a bell.
"[The Packers] made the right decision," Driver said, per NESN. "I think you get to a point in your career where things have to be changed. Sometimes, people have to move on. I didn't think it was going to happen, but things are meant to happen. Look where we're at now.
“That was the benefit. The benefit is that we're in the Super Bowl. We're in the Super Bowl once again."
