Eight more days until the start of training camp.

Good, I have your attention. As the Packers inch ever-closer to the start of real football activities next week, we continue on trying to look back at Packers history and forward to the 2014 season. Today we find news regarding two players ready to go into the team's Hall of Fame, as well as another ranking of wide receivers and a look at the new Packers Pro Shop in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

Enjoy!

Jaguars on track to lead the NFL in season ticket sales - Big Cat Country
Interesting...I'm trying to find out if this is new season ticket orders or total, and if they have split-season packages. That seems like a pretty deceiving claim without knowing the context, especially considering the fact that a certain NFC North team sells out a larger stadium with season tickets and has a wait-list with over 80,000 names on it.
