  • 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.

    We better win!!! No excuses

    Better watch out. This kid can run! That’s all we need, two running threats in their backfield. No room to relax until the final gun sounds!

    Ilike these odds better with Webb

    I would much rather face Ponder,if defense over pursues Peterson and Webb runs a keeper to the opposite side it could be ugly. Hope not!

    A sneaky move by the Vikings perhaps ??? Packers have been game planning for AP and Ponders, now they don’t know what they will get from this guy who is supposed to be quite a runner……. come on “D” put him down early.

    11 in the box for defense

    Come on Pack!! I am concerned they were not preparing

  9. By Beat Ur Man on Jan 5, 2013 | Reply

    On a positive note. Webb could have poor exchanges with the center and with handoffs to Peterson. Time for the home crowd to get LOUD and help break the home playoff losing streak.

    We have made back-ups look like Pro Bowlers in the past. Hope that isn’t the case this time.

    Yes!!!

    The Vikes should have kept the Iron Man, no. 4, “just in case”.

  13. By Montanapackfan on Jan 5, 2013 | Reply

    I doubt the pack forgot about Webb since ponders injury was public knowledge. Gamesmanship is part of the game folks. It strikes me as desperate frankly that the vikes opted for Webb since the smart money on ponder repeating a lights out performance were slim. Still this is a division foe and will be a battle. In the end the pack prevail…gamesmanship cancelled and the vikes returning to familiar confines….watching from home as the post season moves on

    I’m in the “watch out” camp. I actually didn’t understand the Ponder pick because of what I saw in Webb as he gained experience.

    I remember too, in 2010 when a lot of ppl didn’t think Josh Freeman could beat us. Same kind of guy..

  15. By Packer Backer on Jan 5, 2013 | Reply

    Give McCarthy credit to plan for both scenerios – I’m sure they knew Ponder was limited in practice and this could happen. That’s why coaches get paid the big bucks!! Let’s put a “W” to our record and get in Webb’s face!!

  16. By Some Guy on Jan 5, 2013 | Reply

    Okay, if we lose can the regime apologists admit that Dom Capers has to go? I’m nervous about this game, even more so now that Webb is starting. He makes the running game much more dangerous.

    You all are in trouble. You no longer have a cold weather team who can with stand the temps. and beat down people. Bunch of sissies who would rather play in minnesota under a dome. Get ready to run and run and run all night. You will be exhausted by end of 3rd quarter. If it is close you will give up! SKOL VIKINGS!

    Why is DD inactive????

  20. By Montanapackfan on Jan 5, 2013 | Reply

    Some guy…execution matters just as much as coaching if not more. Mental mistakes on the field decide games too. It’s not always the coaches fault as much as fans wish they could attach fault in such limited scope. The pack and its organization is stellar top bottom including capers. Fan expectations collide with reality all too often. Any team can be beat on gameday regardless of potential or coaching credentials

    Webb may be a running threat but he will throw 2 interceptions tonight. And as mentioned already above, the exchanges will be difficult for him and will also offer up opportunities for AP to fumble. At least 3 turnovers tonight from the Vikes. Turn those turnovers into points and the Pack move on to the next round.

    What’s up with Jordy?

    Hope Crabtree didn’t get hurt with that leap….would like to see a bigger points spread but the d is keeping peterson in check and the offense is getting in a rhytmn

    Im shocked that no one commented on the fact that one of the best recievers in the history of the game was not in uniform! With Jordy’s nagging injury, and the fact that ANY receiver could be injured at ANY time during a game, why was #80 not suited up? My opinion of Ted T and Mike Mc has been significantly lowered by the fact that they have given up on Donald Driver!!!!!!!!!!!! I haven’t!!!!!!!!!!!
