Lacy on the Cover

We mentioned it in our Twitter feed yesterday, but felt it needed to be spotlighted here. If you are fortunate enough to be in the Midwest region, this week’s Sports Illustrated features Green Bay RB Eddie Lacy on the cover.

2014 Training Camp — Part I

Well, we’ve gotten behind here in regards to posting photos from 2014 Packers Training Camp, so we’ll be trying to get caught up over the next few days. All of these images are from the first practice on Saturday, July 26th.

Players arrive and begin loosening up before practice begins at 8:20 a.m. The Special Teams units have to be ready to go first, as they begin before the rest of practice does.

“You see, Randall... you have to let them think you want a lot more than you really do, and then they’ll come down to the price you really want. That’s how you get a contract extension done.” 

A gathering of QBs. 

That Capers is such a crack up. 

Above and in the following three images, Rodgers at work in some more scrimmage time. 

We hope we see this a lot in 2014... Nelson running into the end zone. 

If the Packers run up against any teams of giant red balls, they’ll be prepared.
