The greatest story in Personalized Lions Jersey sports

The truth is better than fiction

More photos. More mistakes.

The above photo of Packers officials, Gerald Clifford, Curly Lambeau, Andrew Turnbull, Fred Leicht, Lee Joannes, Emil Fischer, Frank Jonet and Tubby Bero, Personalized Lions Jersey was ID’d in one book as a photo of a meeting taken in the Attic Room of the Beaumont Hotel in early November 1922. The caption incorrectly added it was taken after a game against Columbus and was
Women’s Nike Detroit Lions Personalized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey Shirt where the decision was reached to hold a public stock drive.

Sadly, this mistake cuts to core of the Packers’ existence. The people might be properly identified, but there is nothing else right about that caption. All it does is muddle the story of what the Packers are all about, a team owned by its fans.

Here’s the first red flag. Lambeau was 24 years old in 1922; Bero, 26; Leicht, 27; and nobody else pictured had reached the age of 40. Does this look like a gathering of 20- and 30-year olds?

The second red flag: The seven men pictured, other than Lambeau, actually comprised the executive committee when The Green Bay Packers, Inc., was established in 1935. Clifford, Leicht, Fischer and Bero weren’t actively involved with the Green Bay Football Corporation, formed in 1923, nor were any of them even members of its board of directors until 1929.Men’s Nike Custom Made Pittsburgh Steelers Elite Black Team Color NFL Jersey Cheap.

The third red flag: While the Packers lost money on the Columbus game due to a heavy rain, it was the Thanksgiving Day booster game against Duluth in 1922, also played in a deluge, that was almost cancelled and led to the first stock drive.

George Whitney Calhoun, Green Bay Press-Gazette sportswriter and one of the owners of the team that year, referenced it in the second paragraph of his game story on Dec. 1, 1922. “At one time it was thought the game would be called off but in order to keep with the fans, the management went through with the contest despite a big monetary loss,” he wrote.

Because of what The Duluth Herald described as a “twelve-hour rain,” Lambeau, Calhoun and perhaps the other owners of the private Green Bay Football Club huddled before the game and were ready to call it. But Turnbull, one of the owners of the Press-Gazette, told them if they did, pro football would be dead in Green Bay. Instead, he convinced the others to play and promised he would rally community leaders behind the team before the 1923 season.

A week later, Turnbull and attorney John Kittell called the first meeting of local businessmen that led to the creation of the non-profit, publicly owned Green Bay Football Corporation.

“Proposals covering the transfer of the franchise to a holding organization of businessmen will be put before the meeting,” the Press-Gazette stated in its Dec. 7, 1922 edition. It added, “Immediate action is necessary and the businessmen have called tonight’s conference in an attempt to lay a firm foundation for next season.”Men’s Nike Houston Texans 4 Deshaun Watson Elite Team Color Navy Blue Jersey Sale.

Calhoun wrote several times over the course of his newspaper career that the Duluth game “marked a turning point in the history of the Packers.” In addition, Turnbull said in more than one interview during his lifetime, including one with Oliver Kuechle of The Milwaukee Journal Personalized Ravens Jersey in 1939, that it was the Duluth game that triggered the Packers becoming community-owned.

When the above picture ran in the Press-Gazette on June 22, 1988, the caption with credit line stated it was taken in the 1930s and furnished by Daniel Beisel, who was Turnbull’s son-in-law, a member of the Packers’ board of directors and former publisher of the Press-Gazette.

While the Packers became a community-owned team in 1923, the present corporation wasn’t created until 1935.

To write that Clifford signed and likely drafted the Articles of Incorporation for The Green Bay Packers, Inc., is correct. But he didn’t do so until 12 years after Kittell signed and almost certainly drafted the original articles for the similarly structured Green Bay Football Corporation.

The Green Bay Football Corporation went into receivership in 1933 as the result of a fan’s lawsuit and folded, and that led to the creation of Green Bay Packers, Inc. Turnbull, Joannes and a few others were involved in the formation Custom Falcons Jersey of both Personalized Colts Jersey corporations. But Kittell died in 1932.

 

Captions in several books have stated the fans in the above photo were watching the Packers play in 1919, their first season Custom Colts Jersey.

Not possible.

There’s a fence in the background and the Packers played their first season in an open area in Hagemeister Park with no fence or bleachers. The only way they could raise money was for Calhoun, the team’s co-founder, and others to pass a hat among the crowd and hope people would drop in their spare change.

Also, in 1981, photographer Hank Lefebvre, who worked for The Stiller Company from 1921 to 1936, said Ernie Stiller shot the first photos at a Packers game with a 3A Kodak in 1920. For the record, the 1919 Packers team pictures were taken after the season ended in front of the old Indian Packing Co. garage.

In 1957, the picture above appeared in the Press-Gazette and the caption said it was from a game around 1920. That’s more than plausible because a fence was erected around the Hagemeister Park playing field that year.

In 1954, a similar picture ran in the Press-Gazette and the caption said it was of a standing-room crowd at Bellevue Park in 1924, but it provided a “good idea of how Hagemeister Park looked” the day of the Packers’ first game, Sept. 14, 1919. While that caption hedged on the specifics, it was believable except for the fence in the background. Even after the first bleachers were built in 1920, there were standing-room areas at both Hagemeister and Bellevue Park through 1924.

The above photo has appeared in more than one book and been wrongly identified as an early Packers action shot. In fact, it was put up for auction, billed as the earliest action photo of the Packers and Lambeau, and sold online for more than $4,600.

The photo was taken on Dec. 8, 1917, appeared in the 1918 Green Bay West High School Yearbook and was from a high school football game played between Marinette and Watertown and promoted by the Press-Gazette as a battle for the state championship.

While the game was played in a ballpark in Hagemeister Park, it wasn’t one the Packers ever used. The ballpark in the above picture was torn down in the spring of 1918, four years after Green Bay lost its minor-league baseball team, which had been the primary tenant.

In fact, there were at least four different ballparks in at least two different locations in Hagemeister Park’s relatively brief 25-year history; and the Packers played in three different settings, although not necessarily locations, in the four years they played there.

The Packers’ story is the greatest in sports.

What other team started out playing on a vacant lot and passed a hat to raise money, needed volunteers to go door-to-door to sell tickets, and had fans who were willing to pay admission to listen to results off a Western Union wire and show up by the thousands to welcome home their heroes following a loss?

The answer is none and the sad fact is those who have been peddling fiction, as pointed out in the captions to several photos over the past two weeks, can’t dream up stories better than the real thing.

Two players start on PUP for Personalized Steelers Jersey Packers

Rookie LB Vince Biegel, CB Demetri Goodson not practicing at start of camp, but C Corey Linsley is back

GREEN BAY — Two players Custom Lions Jersey for the Packers have been placed on the Personalized Lions Jersey physically unable to perform list (PUP) and won’t be practicing as training camp opens on Thursday.Women’s Nike Detroit Lions Personalized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey Shirt.

Rookie LB Vince Biegel, a fourth-round draft Custom Texans Jersey pick out of Wisconsin, and CB Demetri Goodson will be out of action until further notice.Men’s Nike Custom Made Pittsburgh Steelers Elite Black Team Color NFL Jersey Cheap.

Biegel is recovering from offseason foot surgery while Goodson tore an ACL in his knee during the 2016 season.

“Both of those guys have been here every day that I’ve been here. They’re making progress,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said before Thursday morning’s opening practice.

McCarthy added that Biegel would likely be out a Personalized Texans Jersey couple of weeks Custom Steelers Jersey, while there was no timeline on Goodson.

The good news on the injury front is that C Corey Linsley, who missed all of OTAs and minicamp due to offseason ankle surgery, is not starting on PUP and has been cleared to practice.

“It’s great to have Corey back,” McCarthy said. “He looks great. I know he’s champing at the bit to get out there.”

The first two practices on Thursday and Friday will be without pads, per CBA rules, and McCarthy emphasized the goal for the first two workouts is for everyone, particularly the young players, to make the transition from OTAs to training camp in terms of the intensity and effort involved in the workouts.

“If we get the practice structure in place and get the operation going at a high level, everything else will fall into place after that,” McCarthy said.
Men’s Nike Houston Texans 4 Deshaun Watson Elite Team Color Navy Blue Jersey Sale.

“We have to practice the right way. There’s a standard for how you practice, and it’s clearly different from OTAs. It’s a lot more physical, a lot more energy spent in these practices, and that’s what I’m looking for, particularly from the younger players.”

As for a theme for 2017, McCarthy said he doesn’t present that to the team anymore until Week 1 of the regular season. The focus now is on the work, as throngs of fans filled the Ray Nitschke Field stands and watched the players ride the kids’ bikes to practice.

“It’s an incredible atmosphere,” McCarthy said. “The players feel good. This is the best their bodies will feel for the next seven months. There’s a lot of enthusiasm, and it’s a credit to our fans for the environment they create for us.”Youth Nike Detroit Lions Customized Elite Team Color Light Blue NFL Football Jersey.

 

Bring on the bikes…and Custom Lions Jersey the sunscreen

Can you feel it? Training camp is finally here

Wes, is LaDarius likely to yield snaps when, in training camp, his new Custom Lions Jersey underclass mates bring explosive reps? (Put together first letter of each word for the real question).

Blocked…and well done.

Hello there, Biff. Montgomery switching to running back in the middle of last season got me to wondering – I know a lot of players switch Custom Lions Jersey positions as soon as they get to the NFL, but do you know of any who switched similar to Montgomery in the middle of one of the first few seasons? Thanks for the Inbox guys, gets me through my long days at work.

Hello there, Jimmy. I’m not entirely sure what the Jaguars were trying to do with Denard Robinson after they drafted him, but I believe he did have his designation switched from “Offensive Weapon” to running back in the middle of a season. Robinson still wore No. 16 during his four years in Jacksonville. The one example I don’t quite understand is how Devin Hester was able to keep wearing 23 after switching from cornerback to receiver in Chicago.

Johan from Pembroke, ON

After investing so much draft capital into the defensive side of the ball since 2011, do you think this could be the year when things finally click on that side of the ball? They’ve shown signs and flashes, but never a
Women’s Nike Detroit Lions Personalized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey Shirt resemblance of real consistency. I love having Rodgers and watching him play, but personally, I more enjoy a defense that’ll scare a quarterback and give an offensive coordinator problems. Call me old-fashioned. The defense has to come together sometime, right?

Consistency and health will determine how far this defense goes. The Packers have made major strides on defense since they overhauled their scheme in 2013. All the adjustments they’ve made with hybrid defenders are what were needed to keep up with offenses. I really thought they were on the verge of big things last year before all the injuries at cornerback. As I said in Tuesday’s Inbox, anything is possible for the defense in 2017, especially if a number of second- and third-year guys make a big jump.

Ken from San Antonio, TX

How are logistics handled at St. Norbert College? Are the Packers players isolated from college students? How many years have they used the college for
Men’s Nike Custom Made Pittsburgh Steelers Elite Black Team Color NFL Jersey Cheap training camp?

Classes don’t start at St. Norbert until Aug. 28, so most students aren’t back on campus yet. The Packers have a 60-year relationship with the college, the longest training-camp partnership in the NFL.

Chris from Jackson, WI

I second Mike’s Styrofoam suggestion. I went to the Seahawks game last season, the day after a good amount of snow, which had melted somewhat by game time, and my boot-covered feet were soaking in what felt like an ice bath all game. It didn’t matter how many layers I was wearing. Once the feet get cold, it’s a lost cause. But a victory always makes you feel a bit warmer.

I’m with you. The feet are everything. Back in my day, I developed a trick of using zip-lock bags over my wool socks and feet-warmers to stay dry and warm in my boots. I also loaded up on hand-warmers.  

Brian from Madison, WI

Do you have any first-day-of-training-camp traditions? What are you most looking forward to today?

I try not to eat fast food, but I’ll usually grab a sandwich from McDonald’s on the first day of camp. Other than washing Spoff’s car, my only other tradition is putting my clothes out the night before and taking a picture with my credential. It’s something my mom used to do when I was in school and I’ve tried to carry it on.

Mike from McFarland, WI

When it becomes clear who the No. 2 running back will be, will Montgomery
Men’s Nike Houston Texans 4 Deshaun Watson Elite Team Color Navy Blue Jersey Sale give them one of his extra 8s for their jersey?

Obviously.

Jasper from Potomac, MD

What are the chances of No. 88 having a 1,000-yard season?

Anything is possible in July.

Mike from Whitefish, MT

I read recently that the Packers like to have two FBs on the roster. If he has a favorable camp, I’m wondering if Devante Mays, at 230, could be a backup at both FB and RB, allowing the team to keep one more promising player at another position.

I wouldn’t rule anything out, but Mays is a tailback. Depending on how the roster shuffles out, I think it’s more likely they’d use Lance Kendricks or another tight end in an H-back role, if needed. At least, that’s what they’ve done in the past in the no-huddle.

Mark from Houghton, MI

Last year it was so frustrating watching our receivers…they seemed to suffer worse separation anxiety than my dog. Rodgers was forced to throw perfect passes every time. Am I being overly critical? To me it seemed rare for anyone to get open. This limited run after the catch, too. What do you guys think? Fair concern?

Rodgers set a franchise record for completions in a season (401) last year. As good as Rodgers is, you need some talented receivers to post those kinds of numbers. There are some positions where I believe the Packers have questions going into the season, but receiver isn’t one of them.

Sam from Madison, WI

With the Yogi quotes going around I was wondering Personalized Lions Jersey who the most quotable person you’ve covered is and what was the best quote you got from them? Keep up the great work.

Easily Tramon Williams. You could ask a question on any topic and he’d could give you a lead quote. He put a lot of thought into every response.

Nikola from Maribor, Slovenia

Bennett is so fun. He slept on the locker room floor, because why not. Love him already.

The good thing about living in Chicago is Bennett can put his daughter to bed and still make it to Green Bay in time for 6 a.m. physicals. The bad thing is the town shuts down around 11 p.m. on weeknights.

Carter from Moscow, ID

Will we ever see a Packers’ “Hard Knocks”?

Teams are exempt from having to do the show if they have a first-year head coach, previously appeared on the show in the past 10 years or went to the playoffs in the past two years. For those keeping score at home, the Packers are seeking their ninth consecutive postseason appearance in 2017. So I don’t think it’s gonna happen anytime soon.

Jason from Klamath Falls, OR

What ever happened to Desmond Bishop?

Bishop played in six games in 2013 and ’14 during stints with Minnesota, Arizona and San Francisco. He’s been out of the league since getting cut by Washington during the 2016 offseason.

Joseph from East Moline, IL

Wes, do you know if there has ever been a kicker or punter in Packers history that has ever gotten to do a Lambeau Leap? If not, I think they should devise a trick play for Mason to run one in so he can leap.

I can’t think of a scenario where a specialist has ever performed a Lambeau Leap unless it Custom Steelers Jersey was during Family Night. I’ll try to ask Crosby the next time I see him.

Kevin from Tucson, AZ

Insiders, though I love to dislike the Vikings it still broke my heart to see what happened to Teddy Bridgewater last August. It goes to show you that injuries can happen anywhere at any time. Hope he continues to heal. I think the Packers have good depth across the board, but anything can happen. Here’s to a healthy 2017 season.

You never want to see another human being go through what Bridgewater did last year. It reminds me a lot of what happened to Derek Sherrod in 2011. For Bridgewater’s sake, I hope he gets a chance to continue his NFL career. Injury prevention and education are important, but there’s also a certain amount of luck involved with each season.

Jacob from Port Huron, MI

When was the last time a draft pick did not make the team?

That depends on your definition Custom Texans Jersey of making the team. Christian Ringo (sixth round) was cut in 2015 but returned on the practice squad. The last time the Packers cut ties with a player completely was Ricky Elmore in 2011.

Josh from Oshkosh, WI

Who puts together the Dope Sheet? Those things are awesome.

Packers PR maven Nathaniel LoCascio is the lead guy on the Dope Sheet. He’s the real MVP.

Bill from Champaign, IL

When the training camp schedule states no public practice, do the players still ride the kids’ bikes to camp? While we are up there for my son’s wedding I would love for my grandchild to see them.

Based on last year, they didn’t bike down to practice on those days.

Robert from Joplin, MO

Expletive and throwing the laptop? Could we assume this was the only time you were upset the Packers won?

It wasn’t about being happy or upset. My problem was I had a useless story belaboring all the Packers’ issues. Instead, it was one of the greatest endings in franchise history and you have 15 minutes to do it justice. Fortunately, Scott Tolzien did me a huge favor with an amazing quote I weaved into my lede.

Robert from Joplin, MO

Also, has the Insider Inbox ever had a milestone involving one person having more than one question answered on the same thread? If not, can I make history?

Not intentionally. Here you go.

Jake from Cottage Grove, MN

Hey Insiders, do either of you have a personal story similar to Martellus Bennett sleeping in the Lambeau locker room?

There was one instance where I considered sleeping in the Press-Gazette video studio following the regular-season finale in Minnesota in 2012. The Packers were set to play the Vikings again six days later, so Mike McCarthy held his news conference at 7 a.m. Ultimately, I went home and slept for two hours before coming back.

Jason from Fort Collins, CO

After seeing an article on ESPN the other day about how Bill Belichick has mastered the art of saying nothing at press conferences, it got me thinking about how lucky you must feel to have Mike McCarthy. Thoughts on how he communicates during press conferences?

I’ve always enjoyed my interactions with McCarthy. He’s not going up there to create bulletin-board material, but also understands everybody has a job to do. Furthermore, he’s never turned down a one-on-one request from me in my five years doing this. I’ve been told by several national writers he’s about as accessible as NFL coaches get.

Darren from Kingston, Canada

Was that Kenny Clark we saw at the podium at Driver and Lee’s HOF ceremony? If so, what’s the story behind him being chosen to speak and what did he say?

Clark was accepting the award for the Packers’ rookie of the year in 2016. I wasn’t there to hear his speech, but I saw the photos he took with his mom afterwards. If you’re familiar with their story, I’d imagine that was a big moment for both mother and son.

In response to Scott from Grafton, the probability of making one two-point conversion is 50 percent, but the probability of making both kicks is .95 times .95, which is 90.25 percent. As a math teacher, I’ll go for one. Numbers don’t lie.

I few years ago I was walking in the small ancient city of Pingyao, China. I spotted a guy in front of me with a Packers backpack. I yelled, “Hey, Packers! Where you from?” He replied, “Paris, France, but I’ve been a Packer fan all my life!” Amazing, our reach, isn’t it?

It’s a small world after all.

Blake from Orlando, FL

The depth at outside linebacker has my attention for training camp. It would be a miracle if both Perry and Mathews play all 16 games. Other than Fackrell and Elliott, who should I be watching that has the potential to make an impact?

Vince Biegel will be in that conversation as soon as he’s healthy. We should get a better idea of his timeline over the next week. Former defensive lineman Reggie Gilbert also has his eyes on a roster spot after a full season working at outside linebacker on the practice squad. Honestly, I’m just ready to get this thing started. Bring on the bikes, the jerseys and the sunscreen. Can you feel it? Training camp is here.

The greatest story in sports

More photos. More mistakes.

The above photo of Packers officials, Gerald Clifford, Curly Lambeau, Andrew Turnbull, Fred Leicht, Lee Joannes, Emil Fischer, Frank Jonet and Tubby Bero, was ID’d in one book as a photo of a meeting taken in the Attic Room of the Beaumont Hotel in early November 1922.

Clay Matthews, Nick Perry trained Custom Ravens Jersey for the long haul this offseason

Veteran linebackers ready to set the tone for Packers’ pass rush

GREEN BAY – Clay Matthews has the same goals going into every offseason, but Custom Ravens Jersey this year the Packers linebacker wanted to be even more proactive in his approach to rehab and recovery.

“I stay in a bubble and wrap my hands up,” smiled Matthews on the first day of training camp on Thursday.

Of course, the six-time Pro Bowler was speaking in a joking manner when asked about his offseason after shoulder and hamstring injuries hampered him last year.

Yet, there is some truth in the Matthews’ words. Now entering his ninth NFL season, the 6-foot-3, 255-pound linebacker tackled his workouts with the big picture in mind.

Matthews started last season on a tear in his return to outside linebacker. Three sacks in his first three Custom Falcons Jersey games were his most since registering six in the first two contests of 2012.

Unfortunately, a lingering hamstring issue cost him four games early in the season. Once that healed, Matthews then sustained a sprained shoulder on a blind-side block in the Packers’ 27-13 win over Philadelphia.

While Matthews didn’t miss any additional games, he was limited down the Custom Colts Jersey stretch in playing only 476 of a possible 1,029 defensive snaps (46.3 percent).Women’s Nike Baltimore Ravens Personalized Elite Team Color Purple Football Jersey.

Knowing how important both he and fellow starter Nick Perry will be to the defense’s plans in 2017, Matthews focused on conditioning and endurance back home in California.

“Our position is pretty volatile and unfortunately we’ve had a few injuries throughout our careers,” Matthews said. “(Nick and I) both feel really good and comfortable with where we’re at, and where we came in in camp, and our overall health right now. They’re counting on us to get after the quarterback.”

The Packers will lean on both veterans to carry the load at outside linebacker after the departure of Julius Peppers and Datone Jones, who
Men’s Nike Atlanta Falcons Custom Made Elite Alternate All Black Football Jersey Shirt combined for more than 1,100 snaps in 2016.

At the same time, this is the scenario the Packers always envisioned after taking Perry in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. They always hoped to feature Matthews and Perry, but injury and circumstance often dictated otherwise.

A year ago, Perry parlayed the first full offseason program of his career into his best NFL season. With a career-high 11½ sacks in 14 regular-season games, the 6-foot-3, 265-pound linebacker emerged as one of the league’s top young rushers.

Now without Peppers – who led Green Bay with 25 sacks over the past three seasons – Perry and Matthews understand more will be asked of them in both meetings and on the field.

“We have to give more,” Perry said. “We lost a big one (in Peppers). It’s just a matter of we have to step up big. We have to get back on track to doing what we do best as a unit, as partners. This year, moving forward, we’re really stepping Personalized Colts Jersey into the year being on all (same) pages right now.”

What the Packers may lack in proven depth at outside linebacker they make up for in potential with 2016 third-round pick Kyler Fackrell, Jayrone Elliott and rookie fourth-round pick Vince Biegel leading the charge.

Fackrell packed roughly 10 pounds onto his 6-foot-5 frame this offseason, while Elliott looks to be more consistent after showing flashes of his
Youth Nike Indianapolis Colts Personalized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey ability over the past three seasons.

Biegel is still waiting to get back on the field following foot surgery shortly after May’s rookie orientation. He was one of two players placed on the physically unable to perform list before Thursday’s opening practice.

Head Coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Thursday he expects Biegel back in a couple of weeks. While the rookie dealt with a similar injury during his senior year at Wisconsin, Biegel doesn’t expect it to be a long-term issue.

“We wanted to get it done the right way,” Biegel said. “That’s what we did, and it feels great. I’m already ahead of schedule … so (I need to) be patient and make sure that things are fully healed before I step on the field.”

Until then, Biegel is taking mental reps in meetings and trying to gain as much insight from Matthews and Perry as possible.

For Perry – who credits his time with Peppers to helping hasten his development – it’s an interesting position to be in and yet a role he freely accepts after signing a new contract in March.

For Matthews, he’s prepared to put his best foot forward and place last season’s Personalized Falcons Jersey injuries behind him. With the shoulder adequately healed, he’s ready for whatever awaits him in 2017.

“Our playing time is going to be up there as far as how it was early in my career as I’m sure with Nick’s, as well,” Matthews said. “We’re looking forward to being the guys we’ve been called upon, especially Nick after taking a big step last year. So we expect big things this year.”

 

The unknown makes it exciting Women’s Nike Baltimore Ravens Personalized Elite Team Color Purple Football Jersey

Veteran mindset evident as Packers open training camp

GREEN BAY – Day 1 of training camp is an animal all its own to veteran players.Women’s Nike Baltimore Ravens Personalized Elite Team Color Purple Football Jersey.

It’s the start of something new that in many ways is the same old slog. It’s a reunion of teammates with everyone physically feeling great, but the body’s battles are just beginning.

Football-wise, the practice structure is familiar. The installation of the playbook is routine. There really aren’t any surprises, except what all this work is eventually going to produce.

“There’s a lot of unknowns,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said following Thursday morning’s opening practice. “How the team is going to come together, how you’re going to start jelling on offense, defense, special teams. Personalities coming out, team chemistry. So it’s an exciting time of year.”

Some vets were trying to keep the opening-day atmosphere light and playful.

New tight end Martellus Bennett, who slept in the locker room two nights ago when he arrived in Green Bay too late to check into the St. Norbert College dorms, donned a cheesehead to meet with the media. He took questions from defensive tackle Mike Daniels posing as an NFL Network reporter while safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix looked on.Men’s Nike Atlanta Falcons Custom Made Elite Alternate All Black Football Jersey Shirt.

“I usually like the metaphorical cheese that goes in my pocket, but the cheese that goes on my head works as well,” Bennett said of his hat choice.

All kidding aside, it can seem overwhelming to ponder starting all over when slightly more than six months ago the Packers were taking the field at the Georgia Dome for a shot at Custom Ravens Jersey the Super Bowl.

But veteran players have succeeded and stuck around as long as they have because they know the right mental approach to take. Now is not the time to think about how far away the team is from getting where it wants to go.

“When I feel that is when we lost at Atlanta, when you end the season, because then you realize what all you have to go through to get back to that opportunity, and that’s when it’s really daunting,” said receiver Jordy Nelson, entering his 10th season and Personalized Colts Jersey now two years removed from ACL surgery on his knee.

“But right now, as cliché as it is, you focus one day at a time. Because if you look at the big picture, it’s going to be a long month. Training camp will be a grind.”

It’s the nature of the beast, but vets will pace themselves, knowing how to get ready for Week 1. That will begin another long haul, and how a team finishes an NFL season matters more than how it starts.

That said, Rodgers emphasized that starting 4-6 before getting hot late is not the best way of doing business. Last year, the offense didn’t hit its stride until late November and then didn’t slow down for nearly two months, but he doesn’t plan on waiting that long in 2017.Youth Nike Indianapolis Colts Personalized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey.

“We just have to find that a little quicker,” Rodgers said of the offensive rhythm that generally defines the Packers’ best stretches. “A lot of that Personalized Ravens Jersey has to do with just finding the right personnel group we want to run, and being able to find that consistency.

“Obviously, I have to play a little better early in the season. We finished (the regular season) the way we wanted to finish it, we just have to get that going a little sooner.”

It helps that center Corey Linsley didn’t have to begin camp on the physically unable to perform list (PUP) after missing the offseason program due to ankle surgery. Linsley practiced on Thursday, stepping in right where expected in the middle of the No. 1 offensive line.

He’ll be able to spend camp and the preseason getting in sync with the new guard to his right, free-agent signee and six-time Pro Bowler Jahri Evans, about whom no Custom Colts Jersey one anticipates any issues fitting in.

“He’s constantly communicating, constantly talking about this look, that look, and that’s fantastic for a guy like me looking to learn from a guy like him,” Linsley said.

As camp and the preseason progress on offense, the Packers will learn just Personalized Falcons Jersey how the depth charts at running back behind Ty Montgomery, and at receiver behind the big three of Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams, will take shape.

After that, it’s on to pursuing a ninth straight postseason appearance, which would tie the league record, and hopefully the franchise’s second championship in that span.

Rodgers is the first to admit eight straight playoff trips is “an accomplishment, but you want more titles.”

Always optimistic, Rodgers again believes the Packers are in position, but how it will play out is the biggest of the unknowns.

“I think us players have to take ownership of it and play better and finish this thing off,” Rodgers said. “We have to do our part.”

 

One helps the other Personalized Colts Jersey perform better

First practice only three days away

Nick from Plainwell, MI

First Monday without Vic…take a deep breath, we can do this! Any coping strategies you recommend?

You can try to guess what his answers would be to the questions, or we have an archive of all his work if you just can’t survive. Otherwise, Personalized Colts Jersey hop on, let’s go. First training camp practice is only three days away.

Brandon from Tulsa, OK

We all know the Janis hype was pretty high the past two years. My question is, would you agree that the Ty hype is even higher? I don’t think I’ve seen this many Packers fans declare a guy HOF material before he’s even had a full season at his position.

Fantasy football drives a lot of the hype in Montgomery’s case, which is fine, but it’s called fantasy football for a reason.

Richard from Kettering, UK

I do not understand why you can’t tell us exactly what is going to happen with the secondary this season?! Considering we’ve only lost and gained a few players, a few of whom have got back to full fitness, they all have one year’s more worth of experience, and we have a few rookies who have never played in the NFL before, it seems absurd that you can’t tell me exactly how they are going to perform! Please put some extra effort in to work this out as I’d rather just know now than actually have to watch a season unfold before my eyes, especially if it will be as dull as last year!

I’ll give it all I’ve got.

Peder from Sturgeon Bay, WI

If there were an “All-Pro” for position coaches which Packers coach gets a Custom Colts Jersey nod?

The first one that comes to mind for me is James Campen. He’s been the lead offensive line coach for a full decade now, and he’s had exactly one first-round draft pick as a starter the entire time – Bryan Bulaga – on a draft-and-develop team. Yet, other than brief rough stretches early in 2009 and ’12 when a few too many sacks piled up, his unit has readily been recognized as one of the strengths of the team, and he got the ship righted in plenty of time in those two aforementioned seasons as well.

Curt from Westby, WI Women’s Nike Baltimore Ravens Personalized Elite Team Color Purple Football Jersey.

You said that all the plays are installed in OTAs and training camp. Would the Packers add a new play during the year due to personnel changes, injuries, or maybe some divine inspiration?

Sure. Often those additions to the playbook are variations of concepts or plays they’ve already installed. Maybe one member of the personnel grouping changes, or the formation, or a potential check, either at the line of scrimmage or for the receivers running their routes.

Tim from Pilesgrove, NJ

I know the readers are gonna blow up on this, but as a 50-plus-year Packers fan, I have to admit I really like the all-white color-rush uniforms. I wouldn’t complain if they made them their away uniforms. Thoughts?

I wouldn’t mind sprinkling them into the road schedule here and there.

Horst from Imperial, MO Men’s Nike Atlanta Falcons Custom Made Elite Alternate All Black Football Jersey Shirt.

What happened to the Rock? Haven’t seen any of his videos lately.

Training camp is right around the corner, so “Three Things” and the “Rock Report” should both be making their return. Stay tuned.

Cameron from Augusta, GA

Mike, your response to Rich from Michigan about being a “fan” of the Pack made me somewhat sad. Would not the fact you spend so much time around the facility and staff and coaches and players make you want to root for the people that make up the Packers? That’s one reason I love this column and website so much, it allows me to know the team better and thus I cheer for their success as much as the joy of “my” team winning.

That’s pretty much what I meant by saying the job is more fun when the team is winning. It’s great to see people you’ve come to know and respect do well and succeed, and it’s much more enjoyable to work in that kind of environment. But I have Custom Falcons Jersey to maintain some measure of detachment Personalized Falcons Jersey in order to provide the readers with analysis that’s meaningful and not just talk-radio blather. It’s also necessary for personal sanity when I have no control over the outcome. This is a cut-throat business. Every week from September through December, it’s either thumbs up or thumbs down. Some Mondays are better than others. You learn as you go how much you can let your emotions intrude.

Mike, you wrote “fans react, reporters analyze” when watching a game. How did you learn to turn off your reactions?

You have to in order to spend a career in press boxes. I’m not saying I don’t react at all, but I have to keep Personalized Ravens Jersey the reaction to myself. Or else I just punch Wes in the shoulder.

Gene from Los Angeles, CA

Hey guys, does Donald Driver ever quit smiling? It’s wonderful for him to be so honored. We were honored to have him on our favorite team.

It was great to see Driver’s big smile again on Saturday night. Ron Wolf mentioned during his press conference that the personnel staff had a fourth-round grade on Driver in the ’99 draft. I don’t think I’d ever heard that specified before.

Mike from Fort Wayne, IN

Now that Vic is flip-flopping into the sunset, what are your ban criteria? Just want to keep my boat from drifting into murky water.

It wouldn’t be any fun to publicize the criteria now, would it?

Brad from Green Bay, WI

I enjoyed reading your comments to a question about the website hits (mobile vs. desktop), behind the screen topics are just interesting to me. What is something that goes on regularly behind the scenes that the fans don’t know that you wish we did?

I don’t know if anyone cares, but I’m most proud of the operation we’ve developed for road games. From our digital staff, we have a handful at the game and others back at home base. The communication is constant in order to get photos matched up with stories, for videos to be processed and posted in a timely fashion, etc. It takes a huge effort by a lot of really good people, and what we’re able to accomplish now vs. five or 10 years ago is cool to see. Road games are our biggest challenge, and there are many involved whose names you don’t know. That’s one reason Wes and I drop a mention into the column here and there.

Matt from Hartford, WI

We haven’t really talked pizza. New York style, thin slice, Chicago deep dish, Hawaiian, stuffed crust, calzone, thick crust, anchovies, meat lovers, what’s your pleasure?

I love Chicago style loaded with toppings cut into big pie pieces, or classic thin crust with one topping cut into squares. Nothing else measures up.

Jon from Waukesha, WI

Here’s a two-point question: It’s the NFC Championship Game, at Lambeau. The weather is awful, wind and snow. The Packers score a touchdown in the final seconds to draw within one. With the terrible weather, do you go for one to tie, or go for two to win?

If the weather has been having a significant impact on the kicking game, and I didn’t think the odds of a 33-yard PAT were much better than a two-point play, then I’d probably go for the win.

Patrick from Pagosa Springs, CO

In Sunday’s “Celebrities who follow the Packers” photos, one name was left out that probably shouldn’t have since he is also a shareholder, that being Chuck Todd of “Meet the Press” fame. Just thought you should know.

We posted a vCustom Ravens Jerseyideo last year of Todd explaining his devotion to the green and gold.

Tom from Herndon, VA

As a Wisconsinite who has visited the south for my job, I had to be educated in the proper use of y’all. It is important to note that y’all is singular as in, “Hey Joe, y’all need to get to practice.” While the plural form is “all y’all” as in, “All y’all need to get to practice.”

All y’all need to ease up on the repetition.

Corey from Kings Park, PA

I’m more worried about the pass-rush than I am the secondary. Matthews and Perry both have had injury issues in recent years and the depth behind them is mostly young and unproven. Won’t a poor pass-rush add more pressure to a secondary already under the gun?

No question. It’s why I was surprised the Packers didn’t draft an edge-rusher until the fourth round, but if that’s how the draft board fell, it’s how it fell. Most important, it’s about both facets helping one another perform better. You get a few plays each game the rush gets there a half-step sooner, the coverage benefits. And if the coverage can hold an extra half-second for a few plays, the rush might get home. It’s those few plays each game that can stop drives, or get a defense in trouble.

Justin from Roswell, NM

The more airtime he gets, the more I like Mike Daniels. Do you have a favorite story or interview with the man that is becoming the face of the Packers’ defense?

He’s done a lot of great interviews, but I think my favorite moment was the coin toss last year in Minneapolis in Week 2. His staredown of Adrian Peterson was classic Mike D.

Ryan from Beijing, China

Has Kirk Cousins found a way to get guaranteed money without signing a long-term contract? I’m going to assume almost $45 million is more than the guaranteed money he would have earned in a long-term deal. The perks of being a quarterback, I guess.

It’s worked out that way to this point, but only because Cousins has stayed healthy.

Don from Cedar Rapids, IA

If a quarterback needs to be “the man” to make an offense successful, what position does a defense need as “the man”?

Forced to pick one, edge-rusher would be my choice.

Jordan from San Jose, CA

Mike, in a previous column comparing Rodgers and Brady, you mentioned the competition being tougher for Rodgers. Here is stat that backs it up: Rodgers has won one game in the playoffs where his QB rating was under 90 and Brady has won 10 such games.

Interesting. Rodgers also has lost four postseason games with a QB rating above 90, and Brady has only lost two.

Jack from San Francisco, CA

I know it’s too early for roster projections, but for lack of better news, I read one. I was shocked to see the projection of the Packers keeping seven receivers, none of them named Geronimo Allison. In my mind, he seems to have the edge for the fourth spot on the depth chart after his strong play last season. Am I crazy? How much does the one-game suspension hurt him?

No roster projection is going to have Allison on the 53 because at the final cutdown, he’ll be placed on the reserve/suspended list for one week. The Packers won’t be deciding until after the season opener if he’s on the 53.

Eric from Madison, WI

After reading the article on the safeties and corners I realized that Randall had four interceptions last year. I know he was a bit of a liability at times throughout his injury-riddled season, but if he snags four interceptions during a bad year, I can only imagine what he does during a good year. Could it be our defensive backs turn into a strength of this team if they stay relatively healthy?

We shall see. I’ve been saying all offseason it’s a group with plenty to prove, and the veteran addition (House) and two draft picks are in the same boat. I like that kind of motivation in professional athletes. Cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt had the line of the spring: “There are no get-out-of-jail-free cards for the way we played last year.”

Roger from Indianapolis, IN

Regarding fans predicting what Green Bay will do this season, Yogi Berra had it covered: “I never make predictions, especially about the future.”

Packers promote McDonough to Custom Ravens Jersey director of ticketing and premium seating

The Green Bay Packers named Jason McDonough director of ticketing and premium Custom Ravens Jersey seating, Craig Benzel, the team’s vice president of sales and business development, announced today.Women’s Nike Baltimore Ravens Personalized Elite Team Color Purple Football Jersey.

 

During his time with the Packers, McDonough has served as manager and, most recently,Personalized Colts Jersey assistant director of premium seating, producing high client satisfaction levels, record customer retention percentages and steady revenue growth. He was a key decision-maker in developing the south end’s new premium seating space, and helped lead the recent two-year suite and club seat renovation project.

As part of McDonough’s promotion, the ticketing and premium seating departments will be merging to create one department.

“Jason has done an excellent job leading our premium seating department over the past six years,” said Benzel. “His varied experience working with premium seat ticket holders, developing new seating space and spearheading the recent suite and Custom Colts Jersey club seating renovation project will be a valuable asset as we combine our premium seating and ticketing departments. We’re looking forward to continuing to serve our season ticket holders and premium seat holders with Jason’s leadership.”

McDonough joined the Packers in 2010 as a premium seating sales executive, and was promoted one year later to manager of premium seating sales and services. He came to the Packers after spending three years as manager of client services for the Miami Dolphins and Sun Life Stadium (2007-10). He also spent time as manager and later, director, in the premium seating department for the Florida Personalized Ravens Jersey Panthers (2003-07) and as an account executive in new business development with the Minnesota Wild (2002-03).Men’s Nike Atlanta Falcons Custom Made Elite Alternate All Black Football Jersey Shirt.

McDonough, a native of McHenry, Ill., earned a B.A. in 1998 and an MBA in 2001 from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minn. His family includes his wife Personalized Falcons Jersey, Nina, and his children, Finn and Teagan.

 

Fans sound ready for football

Annual shareholders’ meeting an unofficial kickoff to new Packers season

GREEN BAY – Football is almost back, and the fans sound ready for it.

It could be heard in the moments cheers went up from roughly 7,000  Custom Titans Jersey shareholders who attended “the most unique business meeting in the entire United States,” as Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy likes to
Men’s Nike Personalized Washington Redskins Elite Red Team Color Jersey for Sale say.

On a comfortable, sun-splashed Monday at Lambeau Field, the fans were treated multiple times to the highlight of the thrilling playoff finish in Dallas last January, and each time Custom Redskins Jersey they saw Mason Crosby’s kick sail through the uprights, they got louder.

Every time receiver Jordy Nelson and his various comeback player of the year honors were mentioned, the cheers got louder, too.

“I was told all I had to do was say ‘Aaron Rodgers’ and you guys would clap,” General Manager Ted Thompson quipped during his football report.

The volume of 7,000 doesn’t compare to 70,000-plus, of course, but the fans still obliged on the day that unofficially kicks off the new season. The first training-camp practice is still three mornings away, but the anticipation of what’s to come is certainly in the air.

How else to explain the audible applause when Thompson mentioned the offense’s two new tight ends, Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks, players only a handful of fans were able to see practice during OTAs earlier this spring.

Or how about the loudest ovation of all? During Thompson’s review of the 2017 draft class, the picture of Wisconsin native and alum Vince Biegel sent a jolt of energy through the modest gathering, even with no knowledge yet whether Biegel’s foot injury will allow him to begin training camp on time.
Men’s Nike Custom Made Tennessee Titans Elite Light Blue Team Color NFL Jersey Sale.

The notable negative reaction came when Murphy mentioned the Packers and Lambeau Field ranking No. 2 in the league in stadium Personalized Redskins Jersey experience, with the new No. 1 being Seattle. The boos were immediate, and the Seahawks happen to be the first regular-season opponent in less than two months.

Yeah, the fans want to get this going.

They sat through the annual review of financial numbers and committee reports, important pieces all to the full scope of the operation, but they don’t dream about spreadsheets and graphs, they dream about Super Bowls.
Youth Tampa Bay Buccaneers Nike Customized New Elite Red Team Color Jersey.

Murphy had their full attention when he noted this season’s Super Bowl will be in Minneapolis, just a short drive away. He then digressed into a cogent explanation of why Green Bay can’t host the league’s annual title tilt – available hotel rooms and weather concerns the legitimate logistical hurdles – but kept them thinking of the next best thing.

“We want to host every NFC Championship we can into the future,” Murphy said.

That’s a meaningful target for 2017, and it jibes with Rodgers’ postgame comments last January Custom Buccaneers Jersey in Atlanta, when the Packers came up one game short Personalized Titans Jersey for the second time in three years.

The playoff cold seemed a long way off on an 80-degree summer Monday, but it didn’t sound as if the fans would mind it being right around the corner.

“The Packers are the envy of every team in the league for the fan support we get,” Murphy said, referencing the terms “unprecedented” and “unparalleled” to describe the fan base.

Added Thompson: “Nothing compares to the support given to the Green Bay Packers, and we’ll never take your loyalty for granted.”

Now they want it rewarded with the ultimate, and though the new season comes with no assurances or guarantees, they’re ready to get it started.

Can’t blame ’em.

Packers will wear color-rush Custom Buccaneers Jersey uniform at home vs. Bears

GREEN BAY – The Custom Buccaneers Jersey Packers will again don their all-white color-rush uniforms during their Thursday Night Football game against the Chicago Bears on Sept. 28, President/CEO Mark Murphy said Monday.

The Packers unveiled the uniforms during last year’s Week 7 game against the Bears, which resulted in a 26-10 victory at Lambeau Field. The uniform consists of the Packers’ regular road jersey with matching white pants. It’ll be worn for only one game this season.Men’s Nike Personalized Washington Redskins Elite Red Team Color Jersey for Sale.

The NFL began using Custom Titans Jersey color-rush uniforms on Thursday night games in 2015 on an optional basis before becoming mandatory last season.

Personalized Titans Jersey Prior to 2016, the last time the Packers wore their traditional Personalized Redskins Jersey white jersey for a game at Lambeau Field is believed to be on Sept. 17, 1989, for a game against Custom Redskins Jersey New Orleans. Green Bay wore its regular gold pants that
