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.

Signature snaps: Top five passing plays of 2012

Posted Feb 4, 2013

GREEN BAY—Packers.com’s review of the top plays of the season returns with another series of “Signature Snaps.”

With each top five list, the accompanying video and poll will allow you, the fans, to review the plays and vote for your favorite. The top vote-getter in each category will then be included in our final “play of the year” segment.

The second installment of this year’s “Signature Snaps” series features the top five passing plays of 2012, presented here in chronological order:

Donald Driver, 26-yard TD vs. Chicago, Week 2

This was the first catch of Driver’s final season, and his most significant. It came one play after a Tramon Williams interception, and when the Packers went for the quick strike, Driver was ignored in the left slot and ran free up the seam. The fourth-quarter TD sealed a significant division win and allowed the “Dancing With The Stars” champion to show off a few of his moves.

James Jones, 18-yard TD at Houston, Week 6

Jones made a number of highlight-reel catches in 2012, and this may have been his best. One-on-one against Texans defensive back Kareem Jackson, Jones reached around the defender with one arm and deflected the ball to himself for a diving catch that gave quarterback Aaron Rodgers a career-high and franchise record-tying six TD passes on the night.

Randall Cobb, 39-yard TD at St. Louis, Week 7

A master at taking advantage of a free play, Rodgers did so here with one of his most memorable throws of the season. Rolling to his left and looking to go deep after the Rams jumped offsides, Rodgers fired across his body and deep down the hashmark. The throw was right on target to Cobb, who capped an eight-catch, two-TD day with the score that finally put St. Louis away late in the fourth quarter.

Jordy Nelson, 61-yard TD at N.Y. Giants, Week 12

The Packers didn’t have as many of these long TD passes as they did the previous year, but this one was a beauty. Rodgers got a key block in pass protection from fullback John Kuhn against rusher Justin Tuck, and Nelson made a slick stop-and-go move down the sideline to get behind cornerback Corey Webster. This tied the score, 7-7, in a game that went downhill from there for the Packers.

Greg Jennings, 45 yards at Minnesota, Week 17

Finally recovered from surgery, Jennings looked back to his old self on this play. As the hot read against a slot blitz, Jennings took Rodgers’ quick throw and proceeded to make several nifty moves to elude tacklers and get the ball all the way inside the Minnesota 10-yard line. A couple of plays later, Jennings caught his second TD pass of the game, in which he had eight receptions for 120 yards.

Be sure to watch the video and vote for your favorite in the poll.
