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 fall to 0-2 in 35-10 loss to Browns

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 16, 2012 – 10:22 pm

The Packers’ preseason record fell to 0-2 on Thursday, with a 35-10 loss to the visiting Cleveland Browns that left Packers fans scratching their heads.

Cleveland scored 32 unanswered points, after the Packers opened the game with a fumble recovery and a 20-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson. As quickly and as easily as they made it look all last season, the Packers held a 7-0 lead against a Browns team quarterbacked by rookie Brandon Weeden, and playing without its star draft choice, third-pick-of-the-draft running back Trent Richardson.

One of the key plays in the game occurred on fourth-and-two, with the Packers near midfield late in the first quarter. Coach Mike McCarthy ordered his offense to go for the first down, but Rodgers threw incomplete. That’s when the game shifted decidedly into the Browns’ favor.

Phil Dawson booted field goals of 47 and 53 yards, then the Browns took a 13-7 lead on a six-play, 45-yard touchdown drive. A 52-yard field goal by Dawson sent Cleveland to the locker room with a 16-7 lead at halftime.

Graham Harrell struggled in relief of Rodgers. David Sims intercepted a Harrell pass and returned it 38 yards for a touchdown, and Harrell would later be called for intentional grounding as he was being sacked in the end zone, which resulted in a safety.

Rodgers completed six of 11 passes for 59 yards and a touchdown. Harrell was 12 of 24 for 100 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions.

The Browns outgained the Packers 338 yards to 228. The Packers committed four turnovers. A fumble by Randall Cobb in the first half was one of the big plays in the game for the Browns. Rookie quarterback B.J. Coleman also threw an interception late in the game.

Green Bay will play in Cincinnati in game three of the preseason, considered to be the most competitive game of the preseason.

    I think my Packers are playing the pre-season “dumb like a fox”. Just in case they are not, I hope Coach is not harsh with them. Think outside the box! Remember when Rosie Greer did ballet in the 70′s? Get the guys into yoga to get centered and find their synergy with each other. We love you Packers!

    Yuck. Sure am glad I had better things to do than spend $70.00 on a ticket to see that. Our backups are horrible. Getting man-handled by a team with a “serious need” of new talent (off season quote by tv analyst) says “we stink” loud and clear. Never under estimate the value of a good backup QB. Injuries aside, this team needs A LOT of work in the next two weeks.

    Graham Harrell needs to go point blank period he doesnt even try to take a chance he changes plays from passing to running when were already hurtin in the running backs an not to mention we were wayyyyyy behind he has no heart and is not what we need im hoping to hear tomorrow that him and the coleman kid both got cut

    This was a sorry game. They should of done better. Time to buckle down and work the other players other than our starters too! Crack that whip and get them ready! You never know how the season will turn out! I just hope it’s better than the preseason!

    Harrell is not improving y do they keep saying he looks better?? And cutting Coleman is unfair they have only given him 90 seconds of real play. Harrell is trying to run when we are stuck in our own 5 with no good rb

    If they don’t win these games where will a winning tradition begin? Roger’s press conference from last week says loads about how seriously he views training camp. Can he really go from cavalier to dead serious in one game flat?

    Someone needs to sharpen this team’s focus!

    I think people are overreacting.
    The Packers played seriously for like a drive until they got their touchdown, then total relaxed. They arent playing to win hardcore, they are playing to regain the feel for the hits, the timing of defenders when the ball is in the air, etc…
    The rookies ARE trying to play and some succeed, others dont. They aren’t pushing 100% just to get hurt in preseason. You’ll see.
    I rather they make mistakes now and correct them and train hard, than fly through it and collapse later on.
    Also remember we pretty much have no running game. Wait for Starks, Kuhn and Benson to get in on this and it’ll change alot. Same with Finley and Jennings.
    Packer’s got this, chill.

    yea they gave coleman 90 seconds to throw the worse pass ever the wide receiver was 5 yards infront of the pass coleman threw that ball right to the browns defender like the guy was wearin a green an yellow jersey an he wasnt under pressure was no excuse for throwin that interception

    Listen, I understand that “this is just a preseason game” and “these games don’t matter” and “these games don’t count” blah, blah, blah. My point is that these players are playing to win – preseason, regular season, playoffs it doesn’t matter. They are just plain getting beat, and they are getting beat badly. I hope and pray that this team can get things turned around before the games DO start counting. What I am seeing on the field is just plain horrible – it hardly resembles football. With that being said, I am hopeful they can pull it together in the next two weeks! Go Pack!!!

    where is the excitement in the players? who wants to make the final cut?? i know the packers aren’t going to show all their cards in a preseason game but their are very basic things you need to see in preseason games we had fumbles, interceptions, miss takels drop passes our QB was the top runner in the game!!! harrell needs to be CUT he is terrible bring on colt Mccoy hes hungry he wants to play we had no INT no Sacks besides woodsons strip i saw nothing positive in this game on Dfence if the packers dont get the basics down know there going to have a rude awakening against the 49ers

    Harrell out for sure out LB are good, I think our players are sand bagging because of money like Jennings deal almost coming up. Cobb was talked about a lot during off season of how good he was Gunna do and he messed up in the fundamentals. I think he is still shook up from last seasons fumbles

    Last nights game was not even worth the effort to watch and trust me it was an effort. I know it’s pre-season, but somebody tell me what the heck’s going on here. Herrell as a back up, you got to be kidding me. Defense, what defense. As mentioned earlier, Don Capers, make me a believer…

  21. By BIG CHEESE on Aug 17, 2012 | Reply

    It’s pre-season, the team that showed up last night, or didn’t show up, is not what we will see in week one. I am concerned about Harrell, and Starks constant injury problem. The Browns were hungry last night, but remember that they have beaten the Pack three pre-season games in a row now….Go Pack Go…

  22. By cheeseheadzone1 on Aug 17, 2012 | Reply

    Colt McCoy in Green and Gold makes sense. For the 2012 / 2012 season Green Bay needs a quarterback with some experience managing and winning games. Colt McCoy gives them much more of what they need than Graham Harrell does and may come as cheaply as a 5th round pick according to the rumors from ESPN. Graham Harrell may be one of those on the outside looking in after this preseason concludes.

    GB Fan needs to relax.A Rod and the Pack will be ready to go against San Fran. I think the starters are not going to risk getting injured in pre season by playing all out and the backups have not worked together.That’s what pre season is about….evaluating the players who may or may not make the final roster. Who cares if they lose.Doesn’t matter.This is going to be a great season for cheese heads everywhere.

    how do you have the worst defence in the history of the game and have a job the next year? They will not be scoring 35 points a game this season they are picking up right where they left off – how do you go into the playoffs with a 15-1 record and play like they did – should take a hard look at the coaching

  27. By Voice of Reason on Aug 17, 2012 | Reply

    Should take a look at the coaching? Archie.. you can’t be serious. We have one of the most talented, YOUNG, focused coaching staffs in the NFL. People will be getting plucked out of this organization for years to come.

    This coaching staff helped maneuver through 2010 when we were and infirmary… And what happened? Lombardi came home. In 2011, this coaching staff helped this team with 15-1.

    And let’s not even talk about the Favre fallout. If THAT isn’t good coaching, then NOTHING is.

    Get over last year. Unfortunately, they played their worst possible game at the worst possible time. Fumbles, turnovers and dropsies. All of that added up to a horrible day. Happens. Football. Get over it.

    Go Pack Go!

    Has anyone alerted the Packers defense the Niners are coming??? Their running game alone should be scaring the heck out of the defensive coaching staff.
    The Pack needs to pound and shut out Cincy next week or they are going to be caught with their pants down on week one! The Niners are that scary!

    Whiners will definitely have a good running game, and of course a good defense. Week one will be interesting, but not a game that we will be able measure how the remaining 15 regular season games, and the playoffs will play out. Just consider A. Smith vs A. Rodgers, and McCarthy vs Harbaugh?

    Preseason or not, there’s something to be concerned about. The whiners are no joke, and the way we’re playin’ is not Packers football. If things don’t start gettin’ better, we’re in for a long season. GO PACK GO!!

    Pack4Life: how do you know that Coleman threw to the receiver and receiver ran wrong route leaving the DB opportunity for INT? Remember the ’03 OT playoff game against Eagles won after Philly intercepted Favre on pass before driving down for winning FG? Wasn’t Favre’s mistake, receiver ran WRONG route. Favre and Sherman called the same pass play against Raiders for big TD earlier in season, this time the SAME receiver, Javon Walker cut to middle of field during route AFTER Favre had released the pass–INT. It’s not always the QB’s fault, especially with a rookie QB and receivers. I’m more worried that Graham is NOT up to the backup job, the Packers defense will continue to let the offense down and Packers will NOT survive a playoff run for SB again.

    My response to Ditka is: as old and broken down as Bears defense is, Packers offense may stay on the field the whole game against Bears. May not need to defend against Cutler and the Bums, since the defense won’t stop Rodgers and the Packer Express.

    I hate to say you have to play 100% in pre-season, not playing at full speed your looking to get hurt!!!! Like i said before,BROWNS had 4 rookies on the 1st squad. Dint look to shabby with 1 of them being a rookie QB. I am going to wait till the end of game 3. Still a lot of work to be done, waiting to really see what or defensive secondary really can do.

  39. By shavager on Aug 20, 2012 | Reply

    Have to say I haven’t been real impressed with play of starting defense, realize they may not play all out especially with the injury that’s knocked out starter Bishop possibly for the season. Likely form and technique is more important than intensity for starters, spotlight is on backups for “real production” in pre-season. Starting offense has sputtered too, obvious if Rodgers goes down GB goes nowhere with Harrell at QB right now. Wouldn’t hurt if Packers can get McCoy from Browns on the cheap if he’s willing to backup. IF Benson can kick Packers ground game in gear, Rodgers’ offense can dominate games again and hope the improvement in defense is enough to keep alive playoff run to SB 47. Talent and depth is there, eliminating mistakes on both sides of the ball is the major key for success.
