Driver emotional after record catch

There's no doubt Donald Driver is a fan favorite in Packer nation.

His infectious smile and work ethic are two reasons.

And Sunday, as many of you, know he put himself in the Packers record book.

 This catch vaulted him past Sterling Sharpe and into the top spot for most receptions all-time in Packers history.

So, for a 7th round draft pick in 1999 who was a long shot to make the team it's easy to see why the moment was so emotional for him.

"It normally hits you when you don't want it to. The crazy part is my wife calle dme today and said 'I'm crying at home." I was like 'Why?' She says because of the record and all that you've accomplished throughout your career when people said you couldn't do it. The things that God has blessed you to do. You continue to go in there week in and week out and year in and year out and continue to prove people wrong. I told my wife 'You shouldn't cry if I ain't crying.' But it's going to be bad because I'm going to be crying on the news tonight," Driver said Monday.

Driver and the Packers travel to Cleveland this Sunday.
