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.

Packers, Lions scoreless after one quarter

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on November 28, 2013 – 12:01 pm

DETROIT–The Packers and Lions were scoreless after one quarter of play at Ford Field on Thursday.

Detroit quickly moved the ball down the field on its opening possession, as quarterback Matt Stafford connected on two over-the-middle completions to Calvin Johnson that put the Lions into scoring position. Joique Bell converted a third-and-two with a 4-yard run to the Packers 22-yard line.

Reggie Bush gaind nine yards on second-and-nine, but Bush fumbled on the next play and Morgan Burnett recovered the fumble for the Packers, cancelling an almost-certain scoring drive for the Lions and giving the ball to Matt Flynn and the Packers offense at the Packers 10-yard line.

Flynn’s first pass on the Packers’ first play was a screen to Eddie Lacy that gained 20 yards. On third-and-eight, Flynn completed a 9-yard toss to Jordy Nelson. Again, Flynn would face third-and-eight, but this time he was sacked by Ziggy Ansah.

Sizable gains by Bush and Bell moved the Lions to their 31-yard line. On second-and-one, Stafford pitched a completion to Kris Durham for 14 yards to the Packers 46-yard line. The Packers continued to surrender big chunks of rushing yardage, as Bush ran for 12 yards and another first down, and then a screen pass to Bell broke loose for 27 yards to the Packers 7-yard line.

The quarter ended with the Lions facing third-and-goal at the 9-yard line.

    Why does McCarthy continue to run on 2nd and long and throw bombs on 3rd down ur not going to have many drives with that play calling. Every week 2nd and long he runs. and throwing deep on 3rd and under 8 just stupid new play caller please Rodgers come back and change the calls at the line pls.

    Its not Flynn its MM and his continuing to run on 1st and 2nd down when everyone knows its coming. 3 Drives with horrible play calling the one after the INT at midfield I thought I was huge not to get 3 he needs to put in Starks for a few carries if he continues to run on long yardage Lacy can’t break tackles every play

    Not going to blame the defense cause the offense cant sustain drives w this idiot calling plays. Maybe he will throw the ball in the 2 minute drill finally. I’m so tired of this. This game was being given to us w the turn overs but the idiot head coach is calling plays like its week one still and is way to predictable

    Well, I had doubts about Matt Flynn – three teams can’t be that wrong. What I have seen does not suggest to me that he is a top QB. I don’t expect anyone to be in ARs league, but someone competent is needed in the post season.

    Same questions as last week Vic, is it no talent or bad play calling? Other defenses can cover…other defenses can stop the run other offenses can find opening in a secondary…

    We can’t stop the run with an eight man front and can’t cover anyone either.

  50. By aplinal on Nov 28, 2013 | Reply

    Huh? Third and 20 and a run into the Lion’s strength – the middle of the line? Oh boy. I have never given up on the Pack – been a supporter through the 70s and 80s, but I think we are wasting Aaron’s best years right now. Such a frustrating time to be a Packer. I know injuries have been calamitous, but, no, serious changes needed in the post season.

    We lose this, and I hope AR stays off the field as long as possible, there is always next year for him – I wouldn’t want his remaining career ruined.

    Is there a professional football team in Green Bay? Because, what i’m seeing, doesn’t look like anything remotely matching that description. I got it that Rodgers got injured, and that will obviously have an impact, but seriously? How is it possible that this team can be THIS bad? And before anyone says something about “rooting for the Vikings or Bears”, come on and get real…This Packer team looks absolutely terrible, and I don’t know whether it’s the players, coaching, or both. What a huge disappointment. Lose ONE guy from a team of 22 and the season goes completely down the drain.
