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.

Holmgren new Pro Football HOF nominee

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 12, 2013 – 12:06 pm

Former Packers coach Mike Holmgren is among 16 first-year eligible modern-era candidates nominated for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2014.

The full list of 126 nominees will be reduced to 25 semifinalists in late November, and then whittled further to 15 finalists announced in January.

Holmgren coached the Packers for seven seasons (1992-98), winning three division championships and qualifying for the playoffs six times. He led the Packers to three NFC Championship games and two Super Bowl appearances, winning Super Bowl XXXI.

Upon leaving Green Bay, Holmgren went on to coach the Seattle Seahawks to a berth in Super Bowl XL.

Other nominees with Packers ties from past years who remain on the list are former GM Ron Wolf, S LeRoy Butler and current OLB coach Kevin Greene.

Last year, Greene was one of the 15 finalists but was not elected.

    No mention of Sterling Sharpe?

    What about the majic man Don Majkowski! The HOE needs a good mullet! But seriously, Ron Wolf should get in for sure.

    Why didn’t Jerry Kramer make it again?

    My feelings on The Majik man did not play very long.he was the start of the Pakers resurgence going into the 90:s.Yes,I think Sterling Shape should be in as well as Kramer.

    HOLMGREN !, still the of the most Admired coaches in SeaHawk history, we’ll never forget 2005, when the REFS calls, (yes, I’m whining about Refs like a Packer fan), lost the Hawks a trip to the SuperBowl in AFC championship game vs Pittsburgh (we were still in the AFC).

    Glad to see LeRoy Butler nominated! One of my favorite players from the 90′s team (of course, along with Favre and White)!

    Holmgren was good, but his decision not to use Levens more in SB against Denver will keep him out for a couple more years. One SB vs. two is a big difference.

    Wolf should be in this year.

    Leroy was a near 40/40 man and the first to come that close. He should be in first ballot.
