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.

Game ball winners vs. Washington

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 16, 2013 – 4:30 pm

The Packers’ coaching staff has awarded four game balls to individual players for their performances in the 38-20 victory over Washington on Sunday.

On offense, QB Aaron Rodgers and WR James Jones were recipients On defense, CB Sam Shields was recognized, and on special teams, it was CB Davon House.

Rodgers completed 34 of 42 passes for a single-game franchise-record-tying 480 yards, with four TDs and a 146.0 passer rating. Jones set career highs with 11 receptions for 178 yards, with half of those yards coming after the catch.

Shields was credited with six solo tackles, one assist and four passes broken up, while House recorded a tackle on both kickoff and punt coverage, following up a strong individual special-teams performance from Week 1.

    What about Starks and Cob?

    I think the whole team should get a game ball, but that’s not exactly practical, is it. Really liked the two Mikes on defense!

    Starks should have received a game ball here.

  4. By Jon on Sep 16, 2013 | Reply

    WTH? No Starks and and no Off lineman? They accomplished something that hasn’t been done in 44 games?

    Really, Starks had a great game. No love!! As you can tell Packer Nation a little upset at the choices. Great game buddy!

    For sure, first 100 yard rushing game in over 3 years, Starks Deserves a game ball! Can you imagine if we get Lacy running and Starks, Unstoppable!

    Mr. James Starks,
    Your post game video comments yesterday confirmed my belief in you. You are a valuable team mate. Certainly true.
    Thanks for the yardage.
    – Patrick

    I agree, Starks should get a game ball too! Aaron works his magic every game win or lose; but nobody has run for over 100 yards in 3 years. Mike, give the man a game ball, he deserves it!

    James Starks deserved a game ball!! 132 yards and a TD! Come on Man!!

  10. By Nolan on Sep 16, 2013 | Reply

    Starks shouldve gotten one!

  11. By OKGOPACK on Sep 16, 2013 | Reply

    Just because Aaron “works his magic every game” doesn’t mean we should undervalue him or take him for granted. Still, maybe they did give the other offensive game ball to the wrong James. :)

    James Starks, you absolutely deserve a game ball. Coach Mc Carthy, make this right and please give him a game ball!

    Agree, would have given one to Starks…..Great game Packers!

  14. By OKGOPACK on Sep 16, 2013 | Reply

    Looks like everyone is jumping on the J.S. bandwagon, at least until he gets the fumbles or gets injured, again. Is Eddie Lacy out of a starting job, when he comes off his concussion?

  15. By birdman621962 on Sep 17, 2013 | Reply

    Starks should have ,since they havent had a 100 yard rusher in 44 games! One more game ball werent have hurt anyone!

  16. By Chuck on Sep 17, 2013 | Reply

    I think the whole team could have been given a game ball, but and of course the guys that got a ball deserved it. But my point is how can you ignore Starks. He really deserved it! The offensive line…nothing would happen without them.

    Have to join in on the chorus of people asking where the game ball is for Starks. He had a phenomenal game.

  18. By guy_who_made_a_comment on Sep 17, 2013 | Reply

    It’s highly likely that Starks didn’t get a game ball because he failed to pick up blitzes a couple of times which led to sacks. You have to be a complete back, not just a runner.

  19. By northerner on Sep 17, 2013 | Reply

    I agree with others where is the game ball for Starks. Also Cobb and Nelson did a good job catching and scoring. Starks is usually getting ripped for his injury riddled seasons so when he does a very good job he should also be recognized. Come on this would mean more to him than another ball to Rodgers.

    Didn’t House have a big-time sack too? Where’s that in the stats? Get sum.
