GREEN BAY, Wis. A foot of snow accumulating Thursday and blizzard conditions throughout northern and central Wisconsin will once again give Green Bay Packers fans an opportunity to shovel out Lambeau Field.
On Friday morning, by which time the snow is expected to stop falling, the Packers are asking for up to 600 fans (ages 15 and up) to help remove the snow from the stadium.
Shovels are provided, as is 10-per-hour pay wage, but as usual, it will be first come, first served. Earlier this year, just two days before a Jan. 15 Packers playoff game, 1,200 people showed up to remove the white stuff from Lambeau Field. However, only 450 of them were needed, leaving the other 750 without a shovel or the extra money.
The Packers are asking fans to report to the west side of Lambeau Field beginning at 8 a.m. Friday, though it's possible that may not be early enough to be guaranteed a spot. Last time, the line to get in was already wrapped around the stadium by that time.
Green Bay's final home regular-season game is this Sunday at noon against the Tennessee Titans.

The Green Bay Packers have decided to bench veteran center Jeff Saturday in favor of Evan Dietrich-Smith, which shouldn’t be a surprise since they’re a team that’s always looking for younger players to make an impact. At the podium Friday, coach Mike McCarthy said Evan Dietrich-Smith would start at center against the Tennessee Titans. And moments later at his locker, five-time...
After wrapping up the division title last week, the Green Bay Packers will look to get closer to getting the number two seed in the NFC when they take on the Tennessee Titans Sunday afternoon.
The Packers are heavy favorites in this game and because they still have a lot to play for, they should be giving this game their all.
Green Bay’s defense should have an easy time slowing...

When looking at the box score of a given football game, it can be easy to overlook some of the unsung heroes.
Sometimes it’s the offensive line paving the way for a 100-yard rusher and going largely unnoticed. Other times it’s a cornerback shutting down an opposing receiver, only to be ignored because he never got his hands on the ball.
On Sunday, defensive...
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy thinks that RB James Starks will be ready for the postseason, accordng to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
“That’s what the medical staff is telling me,” McCarthy said. “Starks’ situation is to hopefully get him back for the playoffs. That was a decision that was made a few weeks ago.”
Starks has a bone bruise...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Defensive coordinator Dom Capers made it sound like injured Packers defensive back Charles Woodson would play in the team's regular-season finale next weekend.
Woodson wasn't so sure about that.But one thing is certain: Woodson, an eight-time Pro Bowl selection, will miss his eighth consecutive game Sunday with a collarbone injury."I don't feel...
Does center Jeff Saturday regret not following Peyton Manning to Denver now that the Broncos are riding high and he just got benched?
The veteran Pro Bowl center was given the hook on Friday to make way for the emergence of Evan Dietrich-Smith at that position. Saturday comments on the move came across as diplomatic yet disappointed.
Saturday is not the only Packers veteran...
Greg Jennings is not naive and he's not ignoring reality, either.
The veteran wide receiver is in the final year of his contract, and has yet to hear from the Green Bay Packers about an extension. Common sense - and Green Bay history - would suggest that means he'll be playing somewhere else next season, a notion Jennings doesn't dispute. But even with the Packers playing...
The Green Bay Packers are looking for help.
The NFL's only publicly owned team is asking for as many as 600 people to clear snow from Lambeau Field on Friday. The first big storm of the winter has already dumped 6 inches of snow on northeastern Wisconsin, with up to a foot expected before it tapers off. The Packers host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
Shovelers need to be at...
The Week 16 matchup is the fantasy football championship for many league owners, meaning that the entire season all comes down to one single weekend. Many leagues have more than just pride at stake, with a rather large prize payout going to the winner. With that being said, can you feel comfortable going with an old school nostalgic feeling and start Green Bay Packers running back...
The Packers are in the playoffs, they just need some help to get a better slot.
The season is coming to a close and I'm sitting at 142-82. That's over .600 but I can do better.

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Friday he has benched five-time Pro Bowler Jeff Saturday.
Saturday signed as a free agent with the Packers in March after Scott Wells signed with the St. Louis Rams. He started all 14 games at center this season.
Saturday was asked to evaluate himself.
"I've graded out well," said Saturday, according to the...
Greg Jennings has been Aaron Rodgers‘ favorite receiver for going on six years now. But the times may be a changing in Green Bay.
Jennings has been the Packers’ most productive receiver and biggest red zone threat over the past five years, averaging about 70 catches, 1,100 yards and nine touchdowns over that span. But a lingering groin injury this season severely limited his...
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson did not practice at all Wednesday as he continues to battle a hamstring injury. He has not played since being injured in a game against Minnesota on Dec. 2nd, which was Week 13. The 27-year-old receiver will need to get on the practice field either Thursday or Friday. He was ruled out last week on Friday and another week of no practice...
