    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.

Davon House back at practice Thursday

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 13, 2012 – 12:11 pm

CB Davon House returned to practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday’s workout with an illness.

Also, DB Charles Woodson was back at practice, though he already has been ruled out for this week and won’t play in Sunday’s game.

RB James Starks (knee), WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) and DE C.J. Wilson (knee) all remain out of practice.

    I agree with not playing C.W. we have done okay without him . hopefully we can have him ready if and when we get in the post season. Let the old man rest up we will need him later at 100% .

    we kept woodson & driver on the team for being a packer a long time. its time to move them along. thanks for ur contribution but its time to move on

    Marty i agree with you on donald driver but woodson is still very good, much better than M.D jennings. he still has atleast one more year after this season.

    I apprciated having Woodson and D. D. on the team and everything they have done for the Packer org., but this is a business, and if you are going to compete in the business world, you have to make changes. This is hard to say, but I agree that CW and DD must have to move on and be replaced with younger players. Is there a spot on the coaching staff for them? I also think they could be a great addition to the coaching staff…

    I disagree with those who want Driver/Woodson off the team. Both of these players bring so much to the team in the locker room and the sidelines. Marty sounds like some of the many employers who let good/long term employees go for the less expensive youthful worker! Can’t replace experience!

    All I can say is … remember what Max McGee meant to Super Bowl I? Having experience to call on at crunch time is an intangible and so far having them on the shelf has not hurt the Packers chances of going deep into the tournament. I trust T.T. doesn’t make sentimental choices AT ALL.

    Driver shouldn’t have been on the team this year. IMO, he made the team because they wanted to avoid a Brett Favre distraction. Driver seldom plays and is not on any of the special teams – not even on the hands team now. No way is he back in 2013.

    I hope Woodson retires at the end of the season. There are younger ascending guys who can play safety as well as Woodson – and he no longer has the speed to play on the edge. Hayward is better than Woodson in the slot right now.

    If their locker room presence is needed (and none of us know what happens in the locker room BTW), then hire them in some sort of coaching position.

    Saturday, Grant, and Hawk all should be done in GB after this season also.

    Driver is a very affordable, reliable reciever on our team. He is absolutely worth a roster spot. Woodson is very instinctive and can still play at a very high level whether or not he has lost a step. And AJ Hawk is having his best season as a Packer, they would be crazy to cut him. He might have to renegotiate his contract, but i could see that happening.

    Give me a Woodson and Driver any day over a head case named Finley. Can’t catch a clutch pass and then runs his mouth off telling us how good he is. Don’t tell me, show me.
    Seemed like not one of you had a problem with Driver when we were down to limited number of receivers and he catches passes and a touchdown, now you are all claiming did not want him all year? Stand by your conviction from day one.

    Marty, you do not understand the first thing about TEAM. It is not about performance, it’s about what you bring to the table as a player, a leader, a teammate. When they stop contributing to the success of the team in one of those categories then maybe your right. I can tell you, they did not keep DD around to catch balls. They kept him around because he is Green Bay Packers wide receiving. You see his play in every one of those guys. Every time Jordy stays in-bounds and slams the defender, that is DD. It is all around you, yet you do not understand TEAM.

    Oh and by the way: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgcfJ8rbuHw

    Bet on seeing alot of Driver in the post season, Remember last year he was the leading receiver against NY! Woodson is the best corner we have seen since Adderley and is better than he was 5 yrs. ago, He is a special player and will be missed when he is gone! Hawk is having his best season, Where would we be if he was put on IR or missed the last 4 games with Matthews out! Grant should not have been cut, Much better than Benson.cant believe what im reading here! GO PACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’d like to know who has a better receiver in the #5 or #6 spot than Donald Driver? Nobody. As for Woodson, like all of the very best defensive players, his strength is reading and anticipating the other side and he’s one of the best in the game at it.

  13. By Sam on Dec 13, 2012 | Reply

    Yeah, Driver has a load of postseason experience. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a lot more of him later on. He’s the guy teams are starting to ignore and that’s a good thing.

    Woodsons move to safety was meant to lengthen his career by 2-3 years because the Packers WANT him on the field as long as they can get. Why would they make that move if he wasn’t worth it? You don’t see that with most players. He is SPECIAL. We AREN’T going to cut him.
    I’ll take Woodsons years and years of experience, his instinct, killer fumble/tackle move, elusiveness, knowledge of our defense and other teams offense and quarterbacks and receivers, everything. He is invaluable to our team!

    That’s why his injury is being watched so intently and reported on the most along with Mathews. How can he be so important to us now and in a few months so worthless the we should just throw him away, makes NO sense. We have young good talent behind him which is what you want. Let them learn behind the master, a future HOF, and a GREAT person and leader. It’ll do them good. Give some respect, he will be back soon and you guys will remember what he does out there. Once he chops a guy, tackles him while forcing a fumble you will love him again.

    Just ask yourself, would you want Woodson out there on the field on the Bears against us? Hell no! Then he is worth keeping.

    well said brotha. these kids forgot wood is amazing? pathetic and tragic.

    Do you realize Hawk is second in tackles by only 1 to Burnett and the next closest only has 1/2 the number? He is tough as they come and studies his opponents and still has enough burst speed to chase down a WR.. Listen to the young guys and hear what they are getting from the veterans. Hawk and Grant still have years left and I believe another year of DD and CW would help the maturity of the D.

    Wood and Hawk are coming back barring something crazy. Driver, I wouldnt hold my breath. Just dont know with his age and the Packs depth. But we still dont know what he’ll do with the rest of the season. Hes an awesome dude wish him the best!

    Woodson had 7 interceptions just LAST YEAR including one pick 6. And there are yobs who fancy themselves as Packers fans who want to dump him when he’s making a transition to safety?

  21. By packerinsanclemente on Dec 14, 2012 | Reply

    woodson is vital to the defense. his knowledge experience and feel for the game are HOF attributes. Why do you think the young secondary is coming along so quickly? They have insight from one of the best football players in our generation! When he ends a play off game with strip sack or a pick six, you will know why he is still there. FYI the coaches and front office know much more about what he means to this team much more than any of us. Driver may retire next year, I have a gut feeling he will go out with a bang! I look for him to have some huge plays in the weeks to come
    GO PACK GO!!!!

    wow

    wow, what a great bunch of diversified comments. Must be the great packer fans speaking.
    I like woodson and driver and hawk.They all have done their part in making the packers the packers. Hawk is having a good year, great maybe or maybe not. Driver has been hurt a lot, and it is true he is a couple of steps slower. He is older, how long can he really hold out? I think he would or could be a great coach. His enthusiasm alone would be enough for that.He has been a loyal packer, and though his playing time could be up, and probably will be, he would be great to see on the sidelines cheering. He is a mister packer man. A.J. Hawk may be a step slower miss a tackle once in a bit. He even might let a pass be caught, but he has a good head, and still some ability to play the game. Would he fit next year, I think so just for his whiskeers in the game.
    We are going to have to look carefully at Woodson. He has fantastic ability and a head to guide him. But he is a step or so slower. You know he is older- he is more injury prone. He has had a great football life. With his knowledge he also would be a great coack. I think that is where all three of them belong in packer wear helping the newcomers along next year. You guys out there have great comments. Go Packers!

    Hawk and Woody can both stay if they take significant pay cuts.
