  • 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.

Clay Matthews ruled out for this week

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 14, 2012 – 2:10 pm

Mike McCarthy announced on Wednesday that LB Clay Matthews has been ruled out and will not play in Detroit due to his hamstring injury.

“We’ll see what next week brings,” McCarthy said. He added that the team had been planning not to have Matthews this week.

Also, WR Greg Jennings (groin/abdominal) and DB Charles Woodson (collarbone) remain out, but McCarthy said both players are farther along in their rehab and workouts than expected at this point.

WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring/foot) was limited in practice, but McCarthy said he “looked like his old self” and doesn’t anticipate him having any problems playing. Nelson missed the Jacksonville game with the hamstring injury and then injured his foot and/or ankle early in the Arizona game and was taken out again.

DE Mike Neal (ankle) did not participate in practice because the ankle injury he played through against Arizona is “bothering him,” according to McCarthy, who is hoping Neal might be able to practice at some point later this week.

    Does Clay have no idea what kind of effect this is having on women around the nation? We’ve already waited 2 weeks for him and now we have to wait another week? Are you kidding me? (sigh) Clay, Clay, Clay. What are we going to do with you. :*(

    I’m a strength and conditioning coach I would take the job with the Packers for half the salary just so we don’t have some of these needless injurys. I know I can make a differance. GO PACK GO!!!!!

    Ralph.. if you can’t even spell “you’re” right, I doubt you have the intelligence and skill to even put cleats correctly on the Packers players let alone mess around with their INJURIES! Brain fat? Is that a technical term you learned in college getting your masters in sports physiotherapy? Lol! I doubt you even graduated high school, let alone stepped foot on a campus. Judging people to be addicts that you don’t even know using it as an insult? Very professional, if you weren’t an immature ignorant child you would know calling people addicts is very inconsiderate to people who are or know a loved one who has gone through such terrible circumstances, very tasteless Ralph, shame on you. I would be VERY frightened if you were anywhere NEAR the Packers, thank god for that much. You sound very immature, you must be 10-15 years old or have the capacity of a child if you are in fact older. I know for a fact you are NOT a S&C coach, have a degree of any kind, and are a thoughtless, ignorant child. Thanks for YOUR time Ralph…

    and just one more thing Ralph… please take the CAPS LOCK OFF, THIS DOESN’T GIVE ANYTHING YOU’RE SAYING ANY MORE CREDIBILITY, IN FACT IT DOES JUST THE OPPOSITE AND MAKES WHAT YOU ARE SAYING SOUND EVEN MORE RIDICULOUS AND MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE A CHILDISH A HOLE. Thanks, ah auto correct can only make you look SEMI-intelligent eh Ralphy? You’re probably just the sarcastic type right lol?

    Opie, Something I learned a long time ago, never argue with an idiot, (Ralph) they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    It is interesting to see Packer fans (so-called) calling one another names. It seems that as arm chair packer fans we think we have a resume that is better than the staff of the Packers training staff. It would be like me thinking that a 58 I could start as QB if God forbid Rogers got injured. Lets stop the peeing contest and focus on Go Pack Go – Beat the Lions and take the first step in controlling your own destiny. In addition Go Niners Go – thought it would be a cold day in hell before I made that statement, but I just did!! If you claim to be a Packers fan than act like one – if not and want to have peeing contests move to New York and beoome a Jets fan.

    You can’t just out-condition everyone else and so avoid injuries. They do the same things that the Packers do. It’s football. Ray Nitschke missed playing time with a hammy. Get used to it. It’s going to keep happening.

    Fun week of football. Starting Sunday, notable games through next week are GB@DET, CHI@SF, HOU@DET, MIN@CHI, GB@NY. Every one but MIN@CHI will be nationally televised in its own time slot. Enjoy.

    good enough with holes and our wr’s
    still dropping balls. so i don’t have

    Imagine at the beginning of the season being told we would be without Matthews, Woodson, and Jennings at the same time. Would be deadly to many teams, but the depth of the Packers is showing again as people step in and the team comes together to take care of business. It may not all be pretty when there are so many injuries, but they are getting wins. Soon we will have them back, hopefully all healthy for the playoffs. GO PACK!

    I think Jake has been sipping the Kool-Aid again. But, if it makes you feel better, WTH. My prredition: The Pack wil lose to Detroit and the Giants and then run the tablefor wild card spot, get humiliated again but this time by the Bears (with or without Cutler).

    Stick to your bears site troll. Nothing better to do than read packer news. Maybe this year isn’t the Packers year but it most definitely won’t be the bears either. Not with the fools they have playing for and coaching that team. When was the last time the bears beat the Packers anyway because I honestly don’t recall?
