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.

Burnett, Starks, Lattimore awarded game balls

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 3, 2012 – 2:21 pm

Packers S Morgan Burnett, RB James Starks and LB Jamari Lattimore earned game balls for their performance vs. the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13

S Morgan Burnett’s two interceptions on Sunday in the 23-14 victory over the Vikings has earned him the defensive game ball from the Packers’ coaching staff.

The coaches award game balls weekly to members of all three phases — offense, defense and special teams — based on their performances.

Burnett’s two interceptions were his first two of the season, and they both came at crucial times. The first came early in the third quarter, in the end zone with the Vikings at Green Bay’s 8-yard line and threatening to add to their 14-10 lead. The second came later in the third quarter after the Packers had taken a 20-14 lead but the Vikings were driving again, having reached the Green Bay 25.

On offense, James Starks received a game ball for his 15-carry, 66-yard outing, which included a 22-yard TD run for the go-ahead score. Starks hadn’t scored a rushing TD since Week 1 of last season, and the rushing TD was the Packers’ first this season since Week 5 in Indianapolis.

On special teams, LB Jamari Lattimore was the game-ball recipient. Lattimore wasn’t credited with any coverage tackles based on the press box statistics, but the coaches often see things on film that don’t make the stat report and reward a player accordingly.

    Great job by Burnett with the two intercepts and Starks looks like the guy that is the quickest and recognizes the opening running at them. Nice to see the Pack beat the vikings. Hope that Cobb figures out soon that if he sits down in the end zone they will get the ball at the 20. So far it appears most the time he comes up short and runs east and west more than north or south. He makes some great plays on the field. His kick off returns fall short of the 20 most of the time.

    All of you should be thanking the vkings organization for drafting Ponder. Because he is the only reason you won yesterday. AD torched you guys for 200+ yards. So much for a run D without Matthews huh???

    I hate Ponder, I hope he gets cut ASAP!!! but the fact is, rodgers didn’t play that much better. You should have been torched by three TDs but our QB is terrible and loves to throw it to the other team.

    At half time, what packers fans didn’t see is their team waiting with their pants down for the vikings to come back there and give it to em hard… But apparently Ponder and Fraizer talked about it and they thought it was to harsh…

    Sounds like a ViQueens troll ended up on Packers.com. How many times have a visited a Vikings website? 0. Tough loss, just remember it’s only a game.

    lol at the vikings fan. sure ap tore it up but you cant count on one guy for your football team. the vikings have had plenty of time to figure out their QB situation…they just suck at it, like their lame fans suck at trolling. tough loss but everyone know that the queens deserve the lowliest spot in the history of the nfl.

    Mark: I think you mean to say: You’re a loser, go away. Always want my Packer friends to be grammatically correct!

    As for “ALL DAY”- Rodgers didn’t play that much better? Did you actually watch the same game? Ponder had a QBR of 41.9 while Aaron’s was a very nice 98. Ponder had 119 yards while Aaron had 286 yards. Ponder completed less than half his passes while Aaron completed 77% of his. Thus, I think your comment falls flat on its face.

    Hey, remember when the Vikings won that Super Bowl??

    Me neither!

    GO PACK GO!!

    I THK VIKINGS COACH. WHEN AP IS AVERAGING 10 YDS PER CARRY HE GOES TO THE PASSING GAME WITH PONDER. THATS SMART

    Just need Starks to start dropping his shoulders when people are tackling him. Makes me nervous seeing him take all them shots to the knees. If he would drop his shoulders and bulldoze people he would be a runner like ADP who was in rare BEAST MODE last sunday….glad to see we can still pull out the W getting ran on like that.

    I have been a Packer fan forever. The next best think to a Packer win, is a viking loss to anyone!!! Great comment about the viking’s superbowls!

    Ohhh man. All Day, your “Trolling” makes me laugh, and Packer Backer, thank you for the much needed statistics for two reasons. It really validates the arguments here. Also, it lets All Day and other Cryqueen fans re-live the inevitable loss! Go Pack Go!

    And to think Thompson might have gotten Lynch last autumn.

  14. By Barlowmaker on Dec 4, 2012 | Reply

    @stu weisfeldt: Lynch was available in 2010. Not “last autumn”. Packers won the Super Bowl in 2010 even without him.

    Before Woodson was injured he was the most penalized defensive player in the league. The experiment to move him to safety didn’t work. Remember Atari Bigby and Al Harris?. If they can lose their job to injury so might Woodson. The younger guy’s are showing up.
    Is it me or does it look like James Starks runs as vertical as a fence post?.
    He never gets his pad level down and looks awkward running.

    The last thing in the entire world I would ever do is go on the Queens site….

    Hey All Day, I’ve got some bigger jokes for you than Ponder as an NFL starting QB…

    Why are the Vikings purple?

    You would be too if you’d been choking for 50 years!

    What does a Vikings fan do after his team wins the Super Bowl?

    Turns off his PS3 and goes to bed.

    Keep dreaming, CHUMP!!!

    Love them trolls. Peterson ran for 200+ yards and his team still lost. Harvin has been overworked and is now injured and will be out, for at least, this weeks’ vikings/ Bears game. Peterson will get overworked and his time in the NFL will be cut short ala Earl Campbell. Rudolph, their TE, and now their best receiver, gets the benefit of running under the coverage. vikings fans can complain about Ponder, but his scrambling moved the chains on several occasions in the Packer game. If they don’t like Ponder, viking fans can thank Zygi, Leslie and their team scouts for not drafting Colin Kapernick when they had the chance. I love those fair-weather viking fans! GO PACK, GO!!!
