    Cris Carter's numbers dwarf DD's and even he's having trouble getting in.

    And before someone says it, Super Bowls aren't as important for receivers.

    True. But you get a more warm and fuzzy feeling with Driver than you do with Carter. It's attitude.

    I agree that DD probably wont make the NFL Hall at all, but I was wondering if we retire his number based solely on what he means to the Packers and our fans. Woodson, on the other hand will probably make the Hall with a few more productive seasons (three hopefully.)

    Driver has never even had double digit TDs in a season. No chance of Hall of fame. come on guys.

    Both should be in the Packers' Ring of Fame, but retiring a jersey number is tough. 53 players on a team, 100 possible numbers, each position has a certain number range... It would just be tough to retire two more numbers in Green Bay.

    Before this season, I"d say no freaking way.

    I still don't think both numbers will be retired, but I could see it, and I definitely think both numbers won't be used anymore, even if they're not retired per se.

    Also, Woodson is a surefire HoF. And Driver, with this ring, got a lot closer. I'd say he has a better shot than Andre Reed and Cris Carter, simply because of his history, and him winning the SB.

    I think Woodson has a very very good chance of getting in. Last night helped alot because when you think of this SB you think of Woodson cheering on the sideline from a broken collarbone and with voters they like that sentimental moments. Some, many actually, feel he got hosed on the brady tuck rule and with his numbers I see him getting in sooner than later.

    Only two* other player in history have won a NCAA championship, a Heisman, and a SB. Does anyone know who the other two* are?

    Reggie Bush. The asterisk gave that one away.

    I'm going to guess Peyton Manning but that seems wrong.

    I don't think Desmond got the NCAA Championship part of that equation. I could be wrong on that, though.

    And after a quick Wikipedia trip I see Manning never got the Heisman. He lost to... wait for it... Charles Woodson, who is, I believe, the correct answer because he has a share of a national title at Michigan.
