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 13 Dope Sheet:
FAVRE WILL TIE GREGG: Ironman Brett Favre on Thursday will tie Forrest Gregg for the longest consecutive games-played streak in Packers history, 187. What's more, after this week, only two men will have played more games in a Packers uniform than Favre, Bart Starr (196) and Ray Nitschke (190).
NO REST: The Packers, who also played Monday night Nov. 10, are playing four games in 18 days. Normally, an NFL team would play four games in 22 days.
GILBERT GETS 100: Nose tackle Gilbert Brown, playing since preseason with what should be a season-ending torn biceps, will make his 100th career start Thursday. There aren't many linemen who've played for one team as long as Brown, who reportedly turned down more money from another club this summer to remain loyal to the Packers.
- The Packers' defense allowed just 119 net passing yards, its fewest in more than a year, since giving up 92 in a win vs. Washington, Oct. 20, 2002.
- Green Bay ran for 243 yards against the league's eighth-ranked rushing defense (49ers entered game allowing 86.9 yards/game).
- The Packers' 48 rushing attempts were their most in 22 years, since they had 49 in a 27-14 win at the N.Y. Giants, Oct. 4, 1981.
