  • 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.

Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews named second-team All-Pro

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 12, 2013 – 12:41 pm

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and LB Clay Matthews have been named second-team All-Pro by the Associated Press for 2012.

The annual All-Pro team features one player at each position voted as the best for that season. No Packers made the first team, which included Vikings RB Adrian Peterson and Texans DE J.J. Watt as unanimous selections.

Broncos QB Peyton Manning made the first team, with Rodgers the second-team pick at QB. The first-team choices at Matthews’ position of outside linebacker were Denver’s Von Miller and San Francisco’s Aldon Smith.

    OK, what QB is better than Aaron? Peyton?? Gimme a break! Give him Comeback of the Year, by all mean. But to suggest he’s better than Rodgers is ludicrous!

    Who do you give the ball to with one play left, down by 4?

    You’d be surprised Tarlam. People will say Peyton more than Rodgers. But the thing is. Rodgers hasn’t been in many of those situations because we’re up or he tied the game..

    Dont you know that every time Payton sneezes that it was done with more talent than any one else in the history of time?

    While the packers and a-rog are preparing for the sb Payton and the other 1st teamers will play for the consolation prize which nobody watches. The ap consist of narrow minded writers whose heart bleeds for the afflicted…yes by all means give Payton the nod for comeback qb but don’t piss on our leg and tell us it’s rainin’

    True enough. The media will always favor Payton in ANYthing.
    Maybe the only way for Rogers to solidify his standing is to beat Payton in the SuperBowl.

    Peyton can be MVP & All-pro First team- Give us a Superbowl.

    Thats what Matthews reminds me of on every play.
    Both Rogers and Matthews deserve to be there but 2nd team?, no way!

    Broncos – Packers Superbowl……A-Rod wins Superbowl MVP again, and i can add to my collection!!!!!

    This seriously angers me! Rodgers wasn’t the 1st overall pick. He rode the pine. He did his time. Still, they wanna penalize him?? Cause his name isn’t Manning?

    Of course I care about championships! But, Rodgers is the closest thing to Bart Starr in Green Bay since, well, Bart Starr! It’s a crime to put Manning before Rodgers in the year 2013. And it angers me greatly!

    Easy fellows. Of course I would take Aaron over Peyton, but in a way i am glad he was voted over Aaron. You know how he plays when he is overlooked. He plays with a chip on his shoulder. Look out 49ers.

    Whatever. Who cares about media awards? They’re almost as bad as fan voting awards. This isn’t the Oscars (thank God). As long as Rodgers is concentrating on his next opponent, the Packers can start looking for a place to put the next Lombardi Trophy. The only award that matters.

    Peyton Manning has had a longer career, and his team is on top of the AFC during his first season there. It’s not just about QB ratings, it’s the whole package. I wouldn’t change Aaron for anybody, though. I remember how people talked about him when he first came on board, the ridiculous nicknames and such. I don’t hear those any more. Go Green Bay!

  14. By ColdBloodedGreen&Gold on Jan 12, 2013 | Reply

    It would be poetic justice if Aaron beats Payton in the Super this year.
    Then, maybe, the know-it-alls will have to eat their words. The other Manning had the same problem with the media even after winning a Super. It wasn’t until last year when everyone inside the media laughed at Eli’s claim that he is an elite QB. It wasn’t until he won a second Super, and had some 4th qtr comebacks did they finally shut up. Anyways who cares about the Manning’s.
    Rogers wins and becomes Super MVP this year!

    Both mannings cave under pressure….unlike rogers who is more than battle tested under the pile

    I hate saying this but……rogers has been sacked more times than groceries. If manning had been sacked like rogers he’d be watching from the sidelines. Both mannings are paper tigers when it comes to toughness

    These announcers have done everything during this game short of asking to spoon with Manning! It is ridiculous!!
