Donald Driver's teammates on 'Dancing with the Stars' sideline

A couple of Donald Driver's Green Bay Packers teammates showed up last night to show support for their wide receiver as he fends off elimination in the Season 14 semifinals of "Dancing with the Stars."

Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews and head coach Mike McCarthy were on the fifty-yard line of the dance floor sidelines while Driver spun a Viennese Waltz and shook a samba with his partner Peta Murgatroyd.  Driver and Murgatroyd are currently in third place out of four pairs with an elimination round tonight.

Driver and his partner scored a 28 in the waltz and an almost perfect 29 in the samba.  Judge Len Goodman said Driver's dancing was "absolutely charming" and called the Packer a "big buff tough cream puff."

I'm pretty sure Goodman has never been hit by a 210-pound cornerback on a cross-route, but Driver's opposing NFL defensive backs have to love that description.

The Packers' quarterback, linebacker and coach gave all the support they could from the front row of the dance floor and seems like they were having fun doing it.

But tonight,  it looks like it's fourth-and-goal for Driver and Murgatroyd (love that name) as they go for the coveted Mirrorball Trophy.
