  • 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.

Eddie Lacy 1st alternate for Pro Bowl; Packers have 7 other alternates

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 27, 2013 – 8:00 pm

RB Eddie Lacy

RB Eddie Lacy

The Packers did not have any players selected for the 2014 Pro Bowl on Friday, as the complete roster of players was announced by the league.

RB Eddie Lacy was named a first alternate. Entering Sunday’s regular-season finale at Chicago, Lacy has 263 carries for 1,112 rushing yards and 10 TDs, all franchise rookie records. Lacy’s yardage total ranks seventh in the league and his rushing TD total is tied for third.

Seven other Packers players were also named alternates. They are FB John Kuhn, QB Aaron Rodgers, G Josh Sitton, LB Clay Matthews, WR Jordy Nelson, and CBs Sam Shields and Tramon Williams.

    Aaron you need a super bowl this year. And rest of you packers need his back for backup. And play good and win. Go packers

    At least the Probowl won’t be missing any players this year thanks to the Superbowl… Go Pack!

    Not happy Lacy wasn’t on the list (besides alternate), he deserves it!

    Nelson, Lacy, and Sitton should of made it in. At least they made alternates. Good job guys!

    Who was the last Packer rookie to make the pro-bowl?

  7. By Jdog on Dec 27, 2013 | Reply

    Probably because AA J Hawk got ran over a few times this season

  8. By Garrett on Dec 27, 2013 | Reply

    I wonder why Aaron Rodgers was just an alternate. That’s weird, he’s an elite, record-breaking QB. Probably cause he was injured for most of the season.

  9. By Clay L on Dec 27, 2013 | Reply

    Are you kidding me?? Well, let that be incentive — time to win another Super Bowl. And take it out on the Bears first! This might be the best motivator all season.

    If I was any of the packer alternates I would boycott the pro bowl. If they’re not good enough to get first ballot, then they should all snub the game. Rediculous

  12. By denise on Dec 27, 2013 | Reply

    You know I’m confused how Lacy ends up an alternate when he is top 7 in the entire league and a rookie at that! I swear it’s like people hate the Pack. But I’ll be more pissed if Lacy is offensive rookie of the year! I mean he is the most talked about and gushed over rookie!

    As for why Jody Nelson didn’t make the roster I’m dumbfounded. He has like what top 5 in the league for receiving yards! Just crazy!

  13. By Eddy on Dec 27, 2013 | Reply

    I am the biggest Packers fan, but really, if you look at the choices, I can’t be upset with any of our guys missing out. Lacy, Sitton, and Nelson are not above any of the others at their positions. Come on, now. If we’re being honest, they’ve had good seasons, but none were great. Lacy was out for awhile, Sitton has been just good, and Nelson somewhat went absent once Rodgers got hurt. Sorry to state the truth, but maybe it’ll do some good. We could use the initiative this weekend to play even better against the Bears. This game won’t be a walkover.

  14. By C-Dog on Dec 28, 2013 | Reply

    TOTALLY 100% agree with Eddy. Yeah, it sucks, but looking at their record, this shouldn’t be a surprise. No one aside from Lacy had an AMAZING year. And Lacy was up against running backs that absolutely had better years than even he did. Example…McCoy from the Eagles.

  15. By kb on Dec 28, 2013 | Reply

    You can make that point wit nelson and lacy. They were borderline but not sitton. He had his best year in his career. Gave up the least amount of pressures among nfl guards and was the biggest reason (outsids of lacy) the running game was as effective as it was. Pff has him as the 2nd ranked guard in the nfl.

    Pro bowl is a joke now anyway, not worth watching. Could you imagine if Clay and Aaron were drafted to different teams?

    You think the pro bowl selections are more motivating than getting to the playoffs with a win? weird

    Outside of Lacy, I don’t think there are any Packers deserving and I am dumfounded that Tramon Williams was named as an alternate. He’s been awful this year.

    At least none of the Packers will have to return their RSVP stating….”would love to be in sunny Hawai’i with you fellas but I have another engagement in NY/NJ that I’ll be attending!”

    Pack would rather trade Aloha shirts and flip-flops for cold weather game gear. Our guys can plan a well-deserved trip to the islands the second week of February.

    No Respect for our guys battling it out and never quitting or giving up despite the injuries and setbacks they faced all season.

    McCarthy should post this on the wall and let it motivate our team to another Championship.

    ProBowl, we don’t need no stinking ProBowl, because we’ll be busy in the Super Bowl.

    For me, it just demonstrates that, despite what his detractors say, that MM has done an great job this year of getting the most out of what he has. We could be the Texans with as many selections as victories.

    Not one player on that defence deserves even a mention for the Pro Bowl.

  29. By d krein on Dec 28, 2013 | Reply

    The pro bowl should just be cancelled. It is a waste of time and another exposure to injury.

  30. By mike D on Dec 28, 2013 | Reply

    No matter how well Rodgers plays I believe the game hinges on the defence. Will they be able to cover the bears big recievers.? The last game with the Bears the didn’t even come close. The bears can also run well with Matt Forte. It will be a challenge for the Packer defence. Yes other teams have done it,however the packets defence has made bad team look great all year. Let’s hope they come up with a better game plan on defence to help this defence. I would like to see more press applied to the receivers, I know there is a risk but whet they have been doing just makes it to easy for teams to convert on 3rd down. Just watch easy the Tight End goes across under the linebackers and picks up easy yardage. Should be a fun game to watch, I’m great full to be watching the Packers with the Playoffs on the line. go Pack!!!

    Noticed Jdog’s comment about AJ being run over. You are correct, but if AJ wasn’t making the tackle, their wasn’t much help from the rest of the team. Especially Raji wasn’t much help at all.

    Packers need to be focusing on the playoffs now – the gutless bears had a chance to lock this thing up last weekend and failed to even show up so with A Rod in the game tomorrow, it is OVER. We win by at least 21 points. The bears are a team of quitters and no shows.

    Superbowl Victory is a LOCK at this point. Anything less is a failure after all this team has endured

    Clay is an over rated 1 trick pony. Rodgers is great but missed half the season. Sitton is awful. Does any other player on the team get called for holding more? Tramon also sucks, his better days are way behind him. Shields had a good year, but it’s a contract year and perhaps not a true sign of future play…

    I agree about Hawk. This has been probably his best year yet. I think that dropping a little weight made him faster. He’s football smart and very durable. When game time comes, Hawk is suited up and ready to play.
