Playoff loss still stings for Driver


The NFL's off-season is in full swing now that the Super Bowl is over.

Attention will soon turn to free-agency and the draft.

Now one web site has already pegged the Packers as 12-1 favorites to win the Super Bowl next season.

Those were the 7th best odds given to a team

Donald Driver will take those odds.  

He spoke at an event in Milwaukee a few days ago.

The Packers receiver is still having a tough time getting over the playoff loss at Arizona a month ago.

"You feel like, how can you get over that game. The bad thing is we have to wait another 7 months before we can kick this thing off again. I think a lot of guys know that we left something on the table. We had everything rolling for us. There was an opportunity to win the Super Bowl and we let that one slip away. One thing is how you handle a loss. You move on. You don't let a loss dictate how you live your life. Right now we're focused on getting better next year so we can have home field advantage and we can play all our playoff games at home and we don't have to go on the road,"  Driver said.

Driver said he took a week vacation right after the season but is already working out in preparation for next season.

The 35-year old is the Packers all-time leading receiver.
