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.

Training camp look in: Practice moment dramatic tease

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 8, 2013 – 9:37 am

GREEN BAY–There was drama in the air when Mason Crosby lined up a 52-yard field goal attempt in practice on Thursday morning. It would turn out to be a fake field goal play, but the tease underscored the drama Crosby might encounter on Friday night in the Packers’ preseason opener against visiting Arizona.

Crosby is facing stiff competition to retain the job he’s held since 2007. He needs a strong performance against the Cardinals, on the heels of a 3-for-8 effort on Family Night last Saturday, about which Head Coach Mike McCarthy said “that’s not going to cut it.”

The kicking competition between Crosby and challenger Giorgio Tavecchio is likely to be one of the feature attractions of Friday’s game at Lambeau Field. Quarterback B.J. Coleman will also be under the microscope following a two-interception performance on Family Night.

Coleman and the No. 3 offense got extended work in Thursday’s practice. That’ll likely be the case on Friday, too.

Packers.com will provide a full report following practice.

    Tavecchio has shown up Crosby all camp so far! Not looking good for Crosby!

    Actually they were kind of tied, until Family Night.

    I see the kicker battle as pretty even at this point, not impressive, but even. Crosby also needs to remember that the youngster will come much cheaper than he will. He’s not safe at this point by any stretch!

    Crosby needs to be cut. He has mental issues that is effecting his performance

    We want Crosby to be the starter because he by far has the strongest leg. That is the reason they are giving him so much leeway. When he gets his accuracy down, he’ll be close to, if not, the best kicker in the league.

    I want to see Tavecchio try an onside kick. This is the hidden gem in Crosby’s game. If the new guy has the same mastery of this, Crosby could be in big trouble.

    I’ve seen Tavecchio futile kicks for Cal many times. I sure hope Crosby wins the job.

    Hopefully the Lions cut Harvard Rugland and the Packers sign him. This is pretty impressive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDwbjHV8jLo. Shouldn’t have any issues kicking in the cold.

    I actually think that we could have one kicker for field goals and the other for kick offs… tavecchio for field goals and Crosby for kick offs

    how many super bowls has Giorgio Tavecchio kicked in?

    Too much drama hopefully someone can make a decision soon on who will be the kicker or bring in some more talent if whats there is shaky. This is the pros I think.

    hmmm 4th and 2 at the goal line and Starks cant get into the end zone. Can we just stop hanging on to the hope that hes gonna be good and just cut ties already. So tired of this non existent run game
