  • 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.

Four Packers in Top 100 so far; how many more?

Posted by Mike Spofford on June 7, 2012 – 3:46 pm

The NFL Network’s Top 100 players series has only 30 players left to reveal. Thus far in the first 70 (100 through 31), four Packers have made the list.

Here’s the recap:

No. 92, FB John Kuhn
No. 80, WR Jordy Nelson
No. 56, WR Greg Jennings
No. 36, CB Charles Woodson

Based on those results, it would stand to reason two Packers will be revealed somewhere in the top 30: LB Clay Matthews and QB Aaron Rodgers.

It may be tough to predict where Matthews will land. He has been voted to the Pro Bowl each of his first three seasons, but last year’s six sacks were a career low. Yet, he’s the defensive player that opposing offenses game plan around, and this list is voted on by the players themselves.

Coming off his MVP season, Rodgers very well could end up No. 1. He set a league record for single-season passer rating at 122.5 last year, and he threw 45 TD passes in just 15 games. He’s at the top of his game, and if he’s not No. 1, he’s going to be pretty darn close.

Are there any other Packers you think should have shown up in the Top 100 so far? How about predictions for where Matthews and Rodgers are ranked? Tell us what you think.

    Clay at 8 (hopefully higher) Rodgers at 2…

  2. By aranderson820 on Jun 7, 2012 | Reply

    I’d say Clay around 10, Rodgers in top 5.

    …What about Donald Driver, people?

  3. By Alex on Jun 7, 2012 | Reply

    Rodgers at 2? Under who? Driver because he won the Mirrorball?

    Rodgers at 1… hands down.

  4. By Don on Jun 7, 2012 | Reply

    I think Aaron Rodjers in the top 10 and Clay Matthews around 15

  5. By markovk on Jun 7, 2012 | Reply

    Clay should be top 10. I reckon he’s around 8 or 9.
    Rodgers should be top 3. Let’s be realistic, he didn’t bring what he should have with that form. So #3 under Brees who threw an even better season and Brady, who had to do with a lesser team overall. But certainly over Manning, who should be 4th or 5th.

  7. By Paul on Jun 7, 2012 | Reply

    Aaron will be in the top 3 and clay hovering around 10.

    Aaron in the top 5. Clay in the top 20..

  9. By Michelle on Jun 7, 2012 | Reply

    Rodgers should be 5.
    Mathews should be 25

    MY SON IS A LOOK A LIKE TO AARON RODGERS. MY SON HAPPENED TO BE ON A FLIGHT TO CHICAGO ON 6/6/12 AND AARON WAS ON THE SAME FLIGHT. WHAT AN UNFORGETTABLE PHOTO OPPORTUNITY THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN. FOR MOM ESPECIALLY. MY SON RESPECTED HIS PRIVACY BUT MOM WOULD HAVE LOVED IT!

    in my opinion Rodgers in the best QB and clay is arguable the best clutch defender in the league but all this talk about top 100 is non sense people are remembered by winning not who has the best stats to be called the number one player

  12. By Judy Gallegos on Jun 8, 2012 | Reply

    I agree Donald Driver should be included in the top 100. Jordy Nelson #80?? I think he should be much higher than that. Rodgers should be no lower than 2, preferably #1. Mathews should be around 25. He didn’t have his best year, but definitely made an impact.

  13. By Bernard Guertin on Jun 8, 2012 | Reply

    For me Aaron Rodgers should be number 1 and Clay Matthews should be number 3 because of the work they do even if the team is loosing.
    It is too bad that the Packers do not come to Montreal, Quebec to play a game. I promise I would surely be there.
    Thank you,
    Bernard Guertin

    Aaron should be number 1 in my opionion but I am sure Brady will get that spot. Last year Peyton Manning got the number 1 spot and had come off one of his worst years in his career. Matthews I say in the top 20.

  15. By Robert Smart on Jun 8, 2012 | Reply

    Aaron Rodgers #1 no doubt ! Clay Matthews #10 ! Go Packers !!

  16. By James Zheng on Jun 8, 2012 | Reply

    Clay Matthews #14, and Aaron Rodgers at #3. Unfortunately them guys at NFL network give Tom Brady and Eli Manning all the super bowl hooplah…

  17. By Chris the Chemist on Jun 8, 2012 | Reply

    Rodgers #1 sure… but you all are smoking crack if you think Mathews is in the top ten. There ain’t gonna be any defensive players in the top ten

  18. By Phil Jackson on Jun 8, 2012 | Reply

    Rodgers = 1 or 2
    Matthews = should have been about 75 (maybe 50)

  19. By moneymom1028 on Jun 9, 2012 | Reply

    Aaron Rodgers #1, Donald Driver #10, Clay Matthews #15

    Woodson should have been rated better than clay. I’ll be relieved to see that clay is on the list, very mad if he is left off. Sitton should have been on, but o-linemen don’t get a lot of accolades. Raji could have but last year wasn’t as good so not surprised. same for T. Williams. both will hopefully be on after this upcoming year. Rodgers should get #1

  21. By Jacob on Jun 11, 2012 | Reply

    Aaron Rodgers #1, Clay Matthews #2.

  22. By Justin on Jun 11, 2012 | Reply

    I would have liked to have already seen special teams ACE Jarrett Bush on the list, but we are a little past the range a player of his impact can achieve; maybe next year. Same goes for Tim Masthay – he’s brought a level of dependable consistency to the kicking game that GB hasn’t seen since Craig Hentrich. Another thankless position that the Packers have covered by the best in the business is OG-Josh Sitton. Tough to make the list as a “trench master” though he is deserving and any “skill” player would confirm that his dominance is at the foundation of GB’s offensive production.
