  • 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 trail at halftime, 7-0

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on September 24, 2012 – 9:05 pm

SEATTLE—The Packers trailed the Seahawks, 7-0, at halftime of Monday night’s game at CenturyLink Field.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was sacked a stunning eight times by a Seattle defense that had sacked the quarterback only twice through the first two weeks of the season. A big part of the pass-protection problem for the Packers was its inability to present any kind of rushing threat.

Cedric Benson carried the ball only twice for four yards in the first half. The failure to run the ball left the Seahawks to focus on the pass.

Seattle’s young and talented secondary blanketed the Packers’ receivers, leaving Rodgers to throw for only 86 yards. Most of his 12 completions (15 attempts) were of a short-yardage variety.

Other than for the touchdown pass to Tate, the Packers defense played superbly. Wilson completed only five of 10 passes for 69 yards. On the touchdown to Tate, it appeared a play-action fake helped Tate get behind cornerback Tramon Williams and safety Charles Woodson.

Running back Marshawn Lynch, the Seahawks’ main offensive threat, rushed 16 times for 71 yards. Wilson bought time with his scrambling ability and was not sacked.

The Packers were shut out in the first half of only one game last season, a loss to Kansas City.

    i will never watch another NFL football game this year. im sick of these terrible refs. there is no point of watching a football game when these refs are calling terrible calls. they are changing the outcome of so many games!! i think many others feel the same way! but what do we do? complain and still watch the next game!! quit watching NFL football until the REAL refs come back!!

    Packers were robbed, the lame roughing the passer call costing them the interception , then the bs pass interference call on the 1st and 30, but the refs were not done, they saved the best for last, ignoring the offensive PI, finally giving an obvious interception to they offense and calling it a touchdown , unreal

    I AM VERY DISSAPPOINTED IN HOW THE REFEREE OR REFEREES CALLED THAT LAST PLAY FOR MNF, IT WAS CLEARLY THAT JENNINGS CAUGHT THAT BALL, AND THEY GAVE THE TD TO TATE, AND EVEN AFTER REVIEW IT CLEARLY SHOWED THAT JENNINGS INTERCEPTED THE BALL. SO THE REFEREES ONLY SAW TATE GRABBINGTHE BALL AFTER JENNINGS HAD IT. I AM HOPING TO FIND THE OTHER EMAIL ADDRESSES SO THAT OTHERS CAN KNOW WHAT THE REFEREES DID AND HOW LAST PLAY WAS CALLED INCORECTLY.

    It‘s one thing to be beaten by an opponent…but losing to the refs is ridiculous!

    Pretty pathetic tonight. Someone from league office should have to explain to the fans how the evidence we all saw replayed over and over on tv could have been interpreted as a real touchdown. it looks and smells a lot more like those replacement refs got a few wagers going, and had to do something at the end to make GB loose.

    TheNational Football League is loosing the “professional” in professional football league.

    I am not a Packers fan (I like the Bears and the 49ers), but that being said, I was sorry they were robbed by the horrible officiating on Monday night.

    However, there would have been no controversial call on the final play of the game if Jennings had been playing for the team instead of himself: He chose to go for an interception (and the personal glory) rather than simply knocking the ball out of the back of the end zone. His selfishness cost the Packers the game.
