Two years after he co-founded the Packers with Curly Lambeau, George Calhoun began writing a piece called The Dope Sheet, which served as the official press release and game program from 1921-24.

Honoring Calhoun, the first publicity director, the Packers are running this weekly feature in their release, which is being made available to fans exclusively on Packers.com.

A complete edition of the Dope Sheet will be available each week in PDF format, located in the Packers.com Game Centers.

Here are some highlights from the Week 10 Dope Sheet:

FAVRE NEEDS FIVE FOR 4,000: Is there a way to quantify Brett Favre's worth to the Packers franchise? Probably not, but this might be close: Drives engineered by Favre, entering Sunday, have yielded 3,995 points. Since coming to Green Bay in 1992, he's led 2,088 drives and, excluding drives ended by the clock, put the Packers in a position to score 795 times, or 40.5 percent, compared by some the equivalent to batting .405 over a career in baseball.

FAVRE'S MENDOZA LINE: The Packers' are 4-0 this year when Brett Favre passes for less than 200 yards.

ANOTHER FAVRE STREAK: The quarterback has thrown for multiple touchdowns in five straight games, something he hasn't done since 1998, when he did it in six consecutive contests.

  • On Sunday, Favre threw for at least three TDs for the 47th time in his career. Only Dan Marino (62) has done it more (courtesy Elias Sports Bureau).

HOLDING ONTO THE BALL: The Packers are 3-0 in games this season when they don't fumble.

DUST OFF THE BLEACHERS: Monday marks 29 days since the Packers' last home game.

  • Since 1990, the Packers have gone that long between home games only once. In 1996, they also waited 29 days. After hosting the Chargers Sept. 15, they hit the road three straight weeks, then hosted San Francisco on Monday night, Oct. 14.
  • In 1990, the team's first-ever bye week came on the heels of another three-game "road trip." The team waited 35 days to host a home game.
