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.

Harrell replaces Rodgers in second quarter

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 23, 2013 – 8:33 pm

GREEN BAY–Aaron Rodgers only got a quarter of work on Friday night, as he was replaced by Graham Harrell at the start of the second quarter of a game that remained tied at halftime, 3-3.

Harrell’s earlier-than-expected entrance into the game promised a longer-than-expected drama in the competition for the backup quarterback job. Vince Young is expected to replace Harrell at quarterback.

Packers second-year wide receiver Jarrett Boykin fumbled following a reception midway through the second quarter, and Seattle recovered at its 47-yard line. Three plays later, however, linebacker Nick Perry tipped a Russell Wilson pass into the air and cornerback Casey Hayward made the interception near midfield.

A pass interference penalty against Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman on a Harrell deep pass for James Jones put the Packers at the Seattle 26-yard line. On third and 10, Harrell completed a pass to Boykin, who broke a tackle and gained 14 yards for a first down at the Seattle 12-yard line.

On fourth and two from the 4, tight end Jermichael Finley was originally ruled to have made a diving, finger-tip catch in the end zone, but replay review reversed the call, as the ball was seen to have gone through Finley’s hands and touch the ground.

Harrell was five of 12 for 47 yards. Rodgers completed four of seven passes for 41 yards. The Packers running game was nonexistent in the first half, as they rushed for only 15 yards.

Wilson played the entire first half and completed 10 of 15 passes for 110 yards, but most of Wilson’s completions were of the dink and dunk variety. He was intercepted twice; safety Jerron McMillian joined Hayward in the interception category.

The second quarter included brief skirmishes and a couple of taunting penalties, but no scoring.

    Why was Rodgers taken out? I know they need to look at the backups but how many snaps has Rodgers actually taken this preseason? He needs game time too.

    We NEED a running game. That was all too apparent in the post-season against the Niners.

    Graham Harrell has to be a great person for still being around. As a QB he’s terrible! Wake up McCarthy and give Young and Coleman some more playing time, Harrell’s not up for this.

    Harrell is continuing the Green Bay QB tradition of having terrible-looking facial hair nicely.

    I thought it was hilarious that after all the buildup and hype, Rodgers walks off after one series. Apart from being a necessity, as Green Bay has to shake down that backup QB situation, it was an hilarious message to the Seahawks: “This is what we think of you. This is how much a preseason rematch with you guys means to us: nothing.”

    We need a real line up behind the QB “pounding” running game. Not this stand next to the QB draw junk. I really question all that MM is doing ! !

    for all the money given to one player,he better be able to carry this team on his back to a superbowl championship,if not the money is not well spent.thompson needs to change his strategy and start paying free agents,as in the days of reggie white.you the fans are paying to see rodgers play.we pay full price for our tickets and should get our moneys worth,and not have to watch a qb stumbling around out there like its his game.it appears the pack fans are headed for another disappointing season,you need the horses to win!

    Uh, that highly paid QB has already brought us a championship. How about you sell your “high priced” tickets to fans who actually care about the team and watch the game from your couch.

    Sadly, Graham Harrell has not learned how to run this Packers offense. To be effective in running it, it’s clear that the QB must be able to move laterally… rolling out of the pocket. That element is just as crucial to the run game (making good play fakes), especially in selling play action. All this time in GB and Harrell never “got it”. Good luck elsewhere, Graham.

    13 makes this team. Rodgers out for protection from 69 getting his feet wet at 12′s expense. All about week one when vanilla play goes away and wins count at the end of the day !
