  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

    The pass defense is gonna be even more dangerous! GO PACK, GO!!

    They need to draft more tight ends ! The ones that can’t catch of course.

    On paper looks like a great pics, time will tell!

    It’s time to work on a quality safety and running back.

  8. By steve on Apr 27, 2012 | Reply

    Move Woodson to safety and draft cornerbacks!

  9. By hawk1982 on Apr 27, 2012 | Reply

    I agree with Steve, move Charles to safety, he’s still a good player but no longer has the speed to cover WR’s. He can still tackle, still has great instincts and has a nose for the ball. Plus he’s played the position so he knows what to expect and it would be a easy transition for him.

    The question is, Can Perry get the job DONE that is required of him? There needs to be a good distraction so Matthews can do what he does best

    Yeh Baby.. Packers did it again.

  12. By Joe on Apr 27, 2012 | Reply

    Hey Steve. Where on earth do u see Perry on paper. Have u not seen highlights on him. Plus his outstanding combine. And if so many tweeners weren’t picked early. The guy was easily a top 20 pick. (and if he stayed another year. top 5) Get with the program and give the Packers there due. No different than Jason. You guys question Ted as though he has no clue what he is doing. Mike and Dom got their player.

  13. By Jason on Apr 27, 2012 | Reply

    Joe, I’m simply asking can Perry do the job. There was nothing negative behind my question. Perry is a hand on the ground type of guy. Can he adjust away from that and compliment Matthews? Thats all I’m asking.

  14. By Brad on Apr 27, 2012 | Reply

    In the second round, I like Mychal Kendricks (ILB-Cal.), Chris Polk (RB-Washington) or Josh Robinson (CB-UCF).

    Go Pack!

    Go packs. I made a lucky bracelet for me so u can win. my whole family is a Packs fan! Go Packs!!!

    Hey Joe, TT also thought Justin Harrell was a first round pick too, along with last years flop Sherrod. A first rounder should be ready to step in and make contributions, neither did. TT has made other great picks however so he’s treading water.

  17. By steve on Apr 27, 2012 | Reply

    Hawk, moving Woodson to safety makes all the sense in the world. Collins will be missed but replacing a pro bowler with a future hall of famer gives that position some stability. Since Woodson has demonstated the ability to roam to the ball, gives him the freedom to freelance and teach the younger players how its done.

  18. By steve on Apr 27, 2012 | Reply

    We need to find a replacement for Cullen Jenkins to put more heat on the QB. Mike Neal was a joke, kick him to the curb. Our secondary cant cover for 10 seconds every snap.

  19. By joshua on Apr 27, 2012 | Reply

    Ok Maybe I’m crazy but I think our secondary is just perfect,All we need is someone on the other side of Matthews….NICK PERRY WORKS JUST PERFECT….We play a pressure defense and jump many passes, anyone could be beat if we dont bring the pressure thats just how it works…..MY OPINION IS PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GET LAMICHEL JAMES He is perfect for speed sideline run plays and little dump off passes when the pressure comes in on rodgers……LAMICHEL JAMES = Less sacks, Higher Completion Percentage, being able to get a first down (BEFORE ITS 3RD DOWN), and of course A Great run Attack…..Oh yeah he already looks raw in green and gold/yellow

    Hey STEVE I like your post….He is right folks you can criticize our secondary all you want but it is impossible to cover receivers for 10 seconds a play….And im sure they will get someone better than mike neal in there this year
