Quarterback Aaron Rodgers:
(On playing at City Stadium):
"It felt like a high school atmosphere. It was electric in the air. It was probably our best practice of the preseason until the two-minute (drill). It felt pretty good. It was great to see the fans. A lot of them might not be able to get over to the stadium every day so it was a great opportunity for them to see us play."
Wide receiver Donald Driver:
(On playing at City Stadium)
"It was good to come out and play here. A lot of the guys always wanted to play here, especially the veteran players who never had an opportunity to play in this stadium. The last time they played games here was in the 50s. Now we played on the same field as a lot of the Packers' legends played on. There's a great tradition here and it's an honor to be able to play on this field."
(On the historical significance of the practice)
"It's amazing because the tradition here is long standing. That type of tradition makes it easy for guys to love being a part of this organization. I take my hat off on all the great players that played on that field. I'm just glad I was able to set foot on it."
