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.

Clay Matthews waiting to see how Uncle Bruce schemes against him

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 20, 2012 – 2:27 pm

LB Clay Matthews is the Packers’ best pass rusher. His uncle, Bruce Matthews, is the Tennessee Titans offensive line coach.

It won’t be the same for Clay as going head-to-head on the field against Bruce, a Hall of Fame offensive lineman, but this is about as close as it gets.

“It’s going to be exciting,” the younger Matthews said on Thursday in the Packers’ locker room. “It’s one of those things you think about but you never think it’s going to come to fruition.”

Matthews said he talks with his uncle here and there during the season, but their conversations have stopped this week, understandably so. Matthews leads the Packers with 11 sacks, and his uncle is in charge of keeping Tennessee QB Jake Locker upright on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

“It will be interesting to see what they do, if they give a little extra help over there, or if he wants to leave me one on one,” Matthews said. “Ultimately, I’ll have some choice words for him after the game.”

Another Matthews, Kevin — who is Clay’s cousin and Bruce’s son — had been starting at center for the Titans but injured his ankle this past week and likely will miss the game. So the two cousins probably won’t be on the same field together for the first time as pros.

Matthews returned to action last week after a four-game absence due to a hamstring injury, and he was no worse for wear. He recorded two sacks plus two other tackles for loss and deflected a pass in coverage.

“I’m happy to have gotten through the game with no setbacks,” he said. “I’m looking forward to a new week, not only building up physical strength but knocking the rust off. I feel good overall.”

    Matthews sure didn’t look like he had missed 4 weeks when we played the Bears, look out uncle Bruce here it comes!!!!

    Still waiting for someone to do a story on the Matthews. How can the Mannings be considered NFL’s “first family” when they’ve got nothing more than 3 people from 2 generations playing. Nothing unusual about that. HOWEVER… the Matthews? 2nd family EVER in NFL history to have 3 generations to play with 6 members starting with grandpa Matthews in the 1950s. Between the 6 players, they have been to more than 20 ProBowls, 2 SuperBowls (1 win), 1 HOF, and numerous more accolades than the Mannings or any other family. Not sure if the story has been tossed to them before and they’re just turning it down, but really? Not only that, but Bruce Matthews has 2 additional sons who are currently playing for Texas A&M with one of them graduating next year and the other due to graduate in 3 years.

    For real? We’re going to leave that Viking “fan’s” comment up? C’mon man.

    What do you expect from a team that cannot sell out games even in the post-season. When you’re that hard-up for fans you take what you can get.

    If All Day turns into All Done they won’t be going anywhere but home.

    I think having the best QB beats having the best RB in the league lol AP is a beast but ill take Aaron over him any day

    Not even family can stop Clay Matthews III. So great to have Clay back and what a difference it made last week. Stay healthy for the playoffs Clay! We need you.

    Give me a NFC Central Divison Title and a shot at the Super Bowl any day over an indivual record.

    AP has run up and down the field against the Packers and other teams while all along the PACK contiues to rack up Divisions Titles and playoff spots!

    Your man can break the record on showers in the locker room for all we care, just let the PACKER wins pile up!

    What a difference a ‘Clay makes’!

    I have to laugh at the Vikings fans talking about their RB AP. All of the running backs that ran for big yardage in the past had one thing in common, they were all on crappy teams. Eric Dickerson, O.J. Simpson, Jim Brown, Barry Sanders just to name a few. The reason they ran so many yards is that’s all the team had going for itself. AP has run for a bunch of yards but so what, the Vikes still suck.

  15. By Fat Ninja on Dec 21, 2012 | Reply

    All Vikings can talk about is AP trying to break a record. Who cares!!! It took him 16 games!!! Whats so great about that. WOW! Players now a days have 16 games to do that and can’t even come close most the times. The greats of the past did it in less games!!! GB ain’t here to break records. Only one record is worth breaking! Owning the most SBs!!!!

    Wow Polish Prophet, thanks for the history. I didn’t know all of that about the Matthews family. The reson the Manning’s get the press is because they were all QB’s, so that is understandable.

    AP is a beast, arguably the best RB ever, but the Viqueens still SUCK! Sorry AP, too bad you don’t wear Green and Gold. I’d take Matt Forte too. Another great player on a sucky team.

    That is what the Packers need, defenders getting to the QBs and RBs along with breaking the line of scimmage. The Packers don’t stand a chance with QBs like Eli Manning and RBs like Adrian Petterson doing their thing.

    Don’t rag on Adrian Peterson if the Vikings hadn’t taken him the Packer would have with the next pick instead they got (I forget was it somebody name Sherman) He never gained 1000 yards in any season. You saw what Brett Farve did with A.P. in his back field. Nearly went to the Super Bowl and should have if he would have ran instead of throwing an interception which he was real good at doing in critical games. Actually he was good at throwing interception in all games.

    Wikings Fans, quick look back- Here’s the video of Clay Matthews stripping Adrian Peterson and running for a defensive touchdown. See you in two weeks.

    *Vikings Fans, that is. Not Wikings fans.

    Its possible neither AP, Megatron or Eli will make the playoffs this time around.

    My biggest playoff ‘worry’ is Seattle.. Fail Mary or no. Good defense, beast RB and rookie QB that MAY be Rookie of the Year. SF and Atl look ‘beatable’ ATM.

    Packers v Broncos in Superbowl…
