About Green Bay Packers
History of the Green Bay Packers
Few communities can say they have a bond between themselves and their football team quite like Green Bay and their Packers. Each year, the enthusiasm Wisconsin football fans have buying Packers tickers and getting out to the Frozen Tundra is incredible. Having Green Bay Packers tickets to home games is a family heirloom, passed on from generation to generation. This tradition makes seats at Lambeau Field one of the hardest to get in sports, not just football. The Packers currently rank as the third oldest franchise in the NFL, dating back to 1921 when they were granted membership into the brand new league. Under the direction of some of the most famous names in the game, the franchise has seen the highest of highs and lowest of lows. But the team forever will be remembered for their success, as they have won 12 NFL Championships, earning Green Bay the moniker "Titletown USA."
The thousands of fans who have purchased Packers tickets over the years have seen a total of 21 players and coaches that wore green and yellow enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH. Needless to say, thousands of fans who've bought Packers tickets have seen some of the sports’ biggest names. Great names from Ray Nitschke to Reggie White are included, but perhaps the name that is going to define the most recent era is future Hall of Fame Quarterback Brett Favre. He is in the process of rewriting the record book for the quarterback position, having broken the all-time touchdown and passing yard records. Favre left the team following the 2007 season. The Packers returned to glory in the 2010-2011 season, when QB Aaron Rodgers led the Pack to Super Bowl glory with a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The win made many fans in Green Bay forget all about Brett Favre. TicketNetwork can connect you to tickets this season as Rodgers and company look to do it again!
2017 Green Bay Packers Season
The 2017 Green Bay Packers season was their 99th season overall and 97th season in the NFL. The Packers had their first losing season since 2008, finishing the regular season 7-9. A large factor contributing to the Packers unimpressive season was a season ending injury that quarterback Aaron Rodgers sustained in game 6. Rodgers took a massive hit from Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr. The hit caused Rodgers to suffer a broken right collarbone which ended his play for the 2017 season. Brett Hundley was replaced as starting quarterback. Hundley was selected by the Packers in the 2015 NFL Draft from UCLA as a fifth-round pick. Game 7 against the New Orleans Saints was his first career starting game. The Packers lost 8 of the next 11 games with Hundley as quarterback. Hundley finished the 2017 season with a total of 1,836 passing yards and 9 passing touchdowns. Rodgers will be returning for the 2018 season in hopes of improving on a 7-9 record and bring his team to the playoffs.

During the 2018 NFL Draft, the Packers acquired 11 rookies. In the first round, the Packers acquired cornerback Jaire Alexander from Louisville.
