Packers' rings already sized up
By Todd Archer
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Mike McCarthy made a somewhat unusual step on Saturday when he had his players fitted for their championship rings on Saturday night.
“That kind of made it real,” center Scott Wells said.
The Packers had only two players with Super Bowl experience entering the game and thought it was mostly a matter of NFL protocol.
For veteran wide receiver Donald Driver, whose game was cut short because of an ankle injury, the ring size will mean even more to him once he gets the ring.
“I picked the biggest finger that had been broken for all these years and it’ll have to go over the knuckle,” Driver said. “I’m getting a 14.5 ring. It’s going to be big and it’s going to be gorgeous.”
