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.

Six Packers lead NFC Pro Bowl fan voting at their positions

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 20, 2012 – 10:29 am

Led by QB Aaron Rodgers, who earned the fifth-most votes overall in the recently concluded fan voting for the Pro Bowl, six Packers pulled in the most votes at their respective positions.

The other position leaders in the NFC are FB John Kuhn, C Jeff Saturday, KR Randall Cobb, OLB Clay Matthews and SS Charles Woodson.

Voting by the players and coaches has not yet been tabulated. Fan voting counts one-third in the selection process for the Pro Bowl rosters, which will be announced next Wednesday.

As the top NFC QB, Rodgers finished fifth overall in the fan voting with 777,827 votes. Leading the way was Broncos QB Peyton Manning (993,045), followed by Patriots QB Tom Brady (980,099), Texans RB Arian Foster (829,591) and Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (828,255).

    Fans shouldn’t be allowed to vote at all. For the most part, they are not influenced by what they see on the field, and more by what they read.

    Most can’t be objective enough to give kudos to a rival team’s players, either.

    Tarlam and david, you guys are spot on.

    The reason fans get a vote is so there will be interest in a game that doesn’t have any interest after the voting is concluded.

    Hey we got 6 great players accounted for. But our leader Mr. Woodson has only played a limited role. Raji has played large role. Cobb, and even ol’ Hawk have played upper class..Pickett has played with all he has. I really like Woodson, but dont think he should be there just on reputation alone.

    I respect our rival (Bears) enough to vote for Tillman. And I agree about Wood, he hasn’t played enough so all those votes are just because he’s our guy. Like the team, I love him to death but haven’t seen enough to garner a vote.

    What a difference Clay Matthews makes. Thank God he’s back. In my opinion, could easily have been defensive player of the year if he played every game. Please stay healthy for the playoffs Clay!

    I only voted for the players I felt deserved to go from the Packers. Rodgers, Sitton, Cobb, Matthews,Burnett, Ginger wolverine, and I would of voted for Hayward if I could of.

    No other player really deserves to go. I mean I wouldn’t think it would be insane if players like Williams, and maybe Raji went but if Kuhn wins again I will just be annoyed. Any1 that has seen him run block this year knows he shouldn’t go. He isn’t much of a threat out of the backfield and his only real strength is pass blocking.

    Raji I would of said know way if you asked me the first half of the year but recently has been much better. He made it last year which was insane. He had a really down year and started this year the same way.

    James Jones?

    Yea Charles Woodson is a problem for all offenses, when he’s playing. But C’mon Man. I voted for Rodgers, Cobb, Jones, and Mathstay about 8 times, because those 4 deserve to be in the Pro bowl

    Remember… like baseball this is an all STAR game…not an all best player game… it seems to me that this game traditionally has been played only for the fans, and I suppose an excuse to spend a week in Hawaii…

    Casey Hayward baby!

    I know that was a typo, should have been Williams not Woodson

    How about Mason Crosby? Just kidding. Hope he gets over his slump soon. Masthay is having one heck of a year though, he should be considered.
