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.

Quotes from selected Green Bay Packers 2012 Pro Bowlers

Posted by Duke Bobber on December 27, 2011 – 6:10 pm

FULLBACK JOHN KUHN
(how it feels to be recognized like this)
“It’s just really an honor, because it means that the fans out there really appreciate you, it means your peers, your players, appreciate you, and it means that your coaches, the people that are directly involved in game plans, appreciate you. That’s very special to me. Some awards out there are voted on in all different kinds of ways, but the fact that I can say my peers, my coaches and the fans all really appreciate me, that means more than anything.”

(why he feels he received the honor and what his biggest contributions to the team are)
“I think it’s the fact that I’m versatile at fullback. I can play the traditional fullback role and lead-block, and the coaches also entrust the ball-carrying opportunities that I have. I think the combination of the two of those really gets my name out there.”

(whether the chanting of his name at Lambeau Field will get louder now)
“I can imagine. The fans, they are truly football fans here in Wisconsin. They won’t let this one slide by.”

NOSE TACKLE B.J. RAJI
(his reaction to being named to the team)
“I was pretty excited. It’s one of those things with the position that I play, a lot of times you kind of feel like your contributions go unnoticed, but this is just confirmation that somebody out there is noticing the work I’ve put in and some of the plays I make, and I’m appreciative for that.”

(on getting voted in despite playing a less glamorous position in the 3-4 defense)
“Like I said, it just shows me that the real football minds and the people that understand the game are able to make decisions based off of the film and not necessarily just off of popularity and things like that. It’s good to know that it’s a balanced process.”

(whether it’s even more rewarding after the disappointment of having not gotten in last season)
“I think it’s fitting in a way. Things have kind of aligned with the goals I set for myself when my career started. My No. 1 goal was to win the Super Bowl, and we were able to achieve that first and foremost, and that was the priority and how I had prioritized it. And then the second was obviously making the Pro Bowl, and now that I’ve done those two things, hopefully I can get many more of both.”

(on being the first Packers defensive tackle selected in almost 40 years)
“It’s definitely a big deal to me. It’s really very fulfilling, because the Packers drafted me with high expectations, and in my second year starting, I am now able to build on having won a championship and also the all-star accolades. Ultimately, it’s an honor that can be shared by our whole defensive line. I sent a mass text message to all my (defensive line) guys telling them how much I appreciated them and loved them, because without them, I wouldn’t have had the opportunities to achieve this.”

QUARTERBACK AARON RODGERS
(what the recognition means to him)
“I think it’s the culmination of a solid, successful season. I think it’s an award that is personified by consistent play, but also by a supporting group that has done their job as well. I’m very honored by the recognition, and very thankful for my teammates, the way they’ve conducted themselves and prepared and played, and for my coaching staff, particularly my individual position coach, Tom Clements, and I’m also very thankful to the fans for them voting me in as well.”

(whether being named the starter adds to the honor)
“It does have special significance, because when I was voted in in 2009, I was the third guy and I was very thankful to be voted in, and got the opportunity to start because of some injuries and guys not going. But it’s great to be voted in as a starter, that means a lot to me and it’s a special honor.”

CENTER SCOTT WELLS
(what the honor means to him)
“It means a lot, being that it is my eighth year in the league. I was an alternate years ago, I think about my fourth or fifth year I was an alternate. For it to take this long and to finally make it, it definitely is big for me. It’s always been a dream of mine, so I am excited.”

(whether he takes it as recognition for the offense)
“I take it as an honor as being a part of a special team. I think some of it comes off of the success that we had last year, and then rolling into this year and the success we have continued to have this year definitely pays dividends. As a team is successful, the individual accolades come, so I know it is a direct correlation to what the team has been able to do.”

(whether this has been one of his best seasons)
“I think so. I am not real big on talking about myself, but I think this has probably been my best year so far.”

(if the recognition is more significant because he entered the league as a seventh-round pick, spent time on the practice squad, etc.)
“Absolutely. I was talking to my wife about it and the fact that I was not an All-American in college. I was only All-SEC by the coaches’ vote. Then being a late-round draft pick and having to work my way up from the practice squad, going through what I went through in ’09 when I was on the bench for a couple of games and fighting my way back, it definitely means a lot to finally get recognized and to be named a member of the Pro Bowl team.”
