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 11 Dope Sheet:
SCHEDULE QUIRK: These teams can't seem to avoid one another. The league separated the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers before the '02 season, moving Tampa Bay out of the Packers' division. That hasn't kept the teams from playing, though. The Packers not only play the Bucs two consecutive years (2002-03), but they also travel to Tampa Bay in back-to-back seasons, something the league took strides to avoid when it installed a balanced schedule rotation. What's more, if the teams finish in the same slot in their divisions this season (they're at/near second place right now), the Packers will travel to Tampa Bay again in 2004. Oh, and the Bucs are already slated to come to Lambeau Field in 2005. In fact, the teams could theoretically meet each season of the eight-year rotation (2002-09).
RED ZONE: The Packers have recaptured the NFL's best offensive red-zone mark. Green Bay has scored 21 TDs in 28 possessions inside the 20 (75.0 percent). Kansas City (73.3 percent) is second.
FAVRE NEEDS THREE FOR 10: With three touchdown passes, Brett Favre would reach 20 for a 10th straight season, matching Dan Marino's NFL record. Marino threw for at least 20 TDs from 1983-92.
HOLDING ONTO THE BALL: The Packers are 3-0 in games this season when they don't fumble.
