More Kudos for Driver and Kampman

The Packers two Pro Bowl representatives have now also been named to Pro Football Weekly's all-National Football Conference team. Donald Driver and Aaron Kampman were selected by writers and editors at Pro Football Weekly as well as members of the Pro Football Writers of America. Driver is the first Packers wide receiver to make the all-NFC team since Sterling Sharpe in 1993, while Kampman is the only Packers' defensive end (other than Reggie White, who was named to the team in 1993 and 1995) to be selected first team all-NFC since 1970.

Great to see great players -- and great people -- receive this kind of recognition. Coming on top of yesterday's all-rookie team selections for Greg Jennings, A. J. Hawk and Daryn Colledge, the core of a good young team is in place for next year...and several years to come.
