Cheese Curds: Daily Green Bay Packers News and Links for February 1, 2013

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

We have links on Donald Driver, tiny running backs, and of course that football game that's happening in a few days.

It's the first day of February and we're just two days from the Super Bowl, so normally news about a non-Super Bowl team would be hard to come by. Then Donald Driver announced his retirement today, and that gave Packers writers everywhere something to do yesterday. We kick off today's Cheese Curds with reaction to Driver's retirement and take a look towards Sunday's big game.

PFF breaks down arguments for both teams. To summarize: Baltimore has a complete offense, while the 49ers' pistol offense is a pain for defensive coordinators to gameplan; then again, both teams' defensive front sevens could wreak havoc on the opposing offensive lines.
