On Now
Coming Up
  • 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.

Packers have 7 picks on Day 3

Posted by Mike Spofford on April 28, 2012 – 10:41 am

As Day 3 of the draft begins, the Packers have seven selections left to make. Two of their Day 3 picks — in the fourth and fifth rounds — were traded on Friday night as the Packers moved up for a pair of second-round picks.

The Packers’ remaining picks are as follows: two in the fourth round, back-to-back (132, 133), one in the sixth round (197) and four in the seventh round (224, 235, 241, 243).

As for other possible trades, four of the Packers’ picks (132, 133, 241, 243) are free-agent compensatory picks, and cannot be traded. So only three of the picks are available to use/package in a trade, making another trade less likely. But you never know.

    I like the trades to fill needs and maintain BAP philosophy. Ted said it all though on his interview that they will address need if players are scored closely so there is some flexibility in the decision.

    Great Job. I have said D-line every year since 1996. It makes it(the D-fence) all work better.

    You’ve got to be kidding me with that Safety selection. What about George Iloka or Antonio Allen? If you’re going to draft another Defensive Lineman, what about Billy Winn? What about the running back that has been featured on your website (Chris Polk)? Ted Thompson tries to get too cute with his picks…

    too cute? was the Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, and Nick Collins picks too cute? just because you have no idea who they are doesn’t mean they’re too cute, it just means you aren’t a GM.

    “too cute”? going out and gettng 5 defensive players all guys that they like – maybe a litte too focused on need but it is impressive that they are going out and fixing the two weaknesses on their team: pass rush and pass coverage after they let Jenkins and Collins go.

    @Ian….. Well said! I guess some people also thought the Aaron Rodgers pick was too cute as well. If you look at current NFL rosters, you’ll see that not all NFL stars played in major conferences (Driver, etc.). With TT’s record I’m going to support everyone of his picks!!

    Right on with Defense… Yes, success with some picks in the past.. They blew it on this safety selection! Much better talent available. Aside from a RB, I hope they draft all defense… Yes. TT knows he has a reputation for good quality picks. In this case, he pulled another Justin Harrell!

    Aaron Rogers fell to them… That was anything impressive that TT did. Besides, GB’s A-Rod is successful in part because of his talent but also due to the awesome coaching from Mike McCarthy. Greg Jennings & Jordy Nelson were good picks in the 2nd round. Nick Collins was a good find in the 3rd round. Much like those picks, the 2012 picks in 1 and 2 rounds also look good. I’m less concerned about the DT pick in the 4th round but there were much better safeties available (independent of the conferences they played in college). I hope you guys are right and TT made another great pick (I do not think so though).

    The guy from Maine is the fastest DB at the combine. They also had him visit Green Bay. So he impressed him with the interview etc. You can not teach speed and if he is a good kid I think he will be fine. It may have been a stretch if the experts say so. But the last time I checked NFL GM’s make a lot more $$$ than the experts on ESPN. If those guys were that good they would have thier own board in one of the 32 places where they count not at Radio City Music Hall.
