  • 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.

T.J. Lang returns to practice, has chance to play

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 8, 2013 – 1:51 pm

The Packers might be fully healthy on the offensive line this week after all.

RG T.J. Lang

RG T.J. Lang

RG T.J. Lang, who missed the second half of Monday night’s game with a concussion, said he was medically cleared for non-contact work and returned to practice on Friday on a limited basis. He said he still had another test to take to get 100 percent clearance, so a final decision on his status would be coming over the weekend.

He’s officially listed as questionable on the injury report.

“I feel pretty good,” Lang said. “Each day this week I’ve slowly gotten a little better. I don’t know about my chances Sunday.

“We have to make sure I’m 100 percent before I step on the field. The decision might come tomorrow or it might come Sunday, but I always have to prepare like I’m going to play. I don’t like missing time. There’s still a chance I can be out there.”

If Lang can play on Sunday, the starting offensive line would remain intact. In his absence on Monday night, RT Don Barclay slid over to take Lang’s guard spot, and Marshall Newhouse came off the bench to play right tackle.

“We’ll visit with him tomorrow,” Mike McCarthy said. “I don’t take any chances when it comes to those types of things. He felt all along that he was going to be ready to play, but we’ll check him again in the morning.”

Having the starting offensive line together should help backup QB Seneca Wallace, who will be making his first start in place of QB Aaron Rodgers. McCarthy officially ruled Rodgers out on the injury report Friday.

McCarthy emphasized, however, that the game shouldn’t hinge on the change at QB, and that’s the message he has delivered to his team.

“No disrespect to Aaron, and he knows this too … but you get to the point where it’s about your football team,” McCarthy said. “We’re trying to accomplish something special as a team. Now, special is winning on Sunday, because that’s all that really matters, and that’s what it’s all about.

“This is a long journey. We’re only halfway through the season. But this is a great opportunity for everybody on our football team to step up and be successful. We missed that opportunity Monday night.”

To McCarthy, the week hasn’t been about making drastic changes but rather proper adjustments.

“We’re not going to try to do things we’re not capable of doing,” he said. “We’re not going to throw things against the wall. You’re going to recognize our offense, you’re going to recognize our defense and you’re going to recognize how we play on special teams. Everything we’ve done this week, like we do every week, is to go win the game. We really have moved past playing without Aaron.”

    I hope we don’t recognize the defense we saw Monday night…… phew…..

    Couldn’t agree more. It was disheartening that the Bears ate up the forth quarter clock like they did. The defense needed to come up with a touchdown or a turnover deep in Chicago territory to set up the offense. Come on Capers, for the 3-4 weeks Rodgers is out your guys are going to have to come up BIG to help keep the Packers in Contention for the tournament. I do not fault Seneca Wallace for Monday night’s loss, I look squarely at the defense. Have Clay Matthews back, even though he may only be 70-80% will help because Philly will still need to pay attention to him, hopefully giving another Packer defender or two a change to create havoc with the Philly ofense

    Sorry for the couple misspelled words, but I think you can get the gist of what I’m saying

    Hope T.J. plays. Barclay is below average at best. Watched replay on tv of Rodgers getting hurt and it was Barclays man who tackled him. Moments earlier Barclay had the chance to pancake the guy and he just stood there flat-footed toe to toe with the guy not even trying to block him thinking they were both out of the play until the guy took off and tackled Rodgers. Hey Barclay have you heard of playing to the whistle – this is the NFL !!

    I think that ALL you so CALLED packer fans should show TRUE BACKING of the PACKERS,If you can’t back the players that we have, like Wallace, lets see what happens after he has had a FULL WEEK OF REPS with the 1st string offense,witch he hasn’t had ALL YEAR! Have some faith, THERES NO QUARTER BACK, FLYNN, YOUNG, NUN THATS GOING TO FILL THE SHOES OF ROGERS. So lets BACK OUR PACK!!!!!

    I have no faith what-so-ever in the defense. There is something seriously wrong, either with the coaching staff, which I think is the REAL problem, too much neopotism in the coaching staff.

    It’s strange for me to be posting on a Packers blog since I’ve been a lifelong Bears fan (I don’t hate the Packers – you’ve got a terrific franchise and history, which I respect).

    I’m writing because I work for a Web Design company and we have a client who has some breakthrough technology for dealing with broken clavicles which is really amazing – and which might help Aaron Rogers heal more quickly. The website is http://www.sonomaorthopedics.com and the recovery time is much quicker and the odds of recurring injuries is diminished.

    Aaron Rogers is an amazing football player. He should not have to be sidelined any longer than is necessary – although if he sits out against the Bears, that would help us in Chicago :)
