GREEN BAY - Packers receiver Donald Driver is remaining upbeat, despite not being active for the Wild Card Playoff win over the Minnesota Vikings last Saturday.

"You have to stay positive and keep a positive attitude," Driver told WTMJ's Wisconsin's Afternoon News on Monday.  "It's always tough (not to play). That's the competitive side of any football player."

"But when you get the win, it don't even matter."

Driver said it was humbling to learn about a Facebook website calling for him to be activated this Saturday against the 49ers.

"That's amazing," he said.  "It shows how much you mean to the community and to fans around the world."
