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 2 Dope Sheet:
- Brett Favre needs 10 completions to surpass No. 4 Fran Tarkenton (3,686) on the NFL's all-time list. Favre enters Sunday with 3,677 completions.
- By starting Sunday's game, Favre will surpass former Jets T Winston Hill (174 straight, 1963-76) to extend his consecutive-starts streak to the 10th longest on record. Favre's streak, at 174 entering Sunday, became the longest ever by a QB in 1999 and the longest among active players in 2002.
- Favre (151 at Lambeau) also needs four touchdown passes to tie Dan Marino for the second most ever by a single quarterback at a single stadium. Marino threw 155 at Joe Robbie/Pro Player Stadium. John Elway holds the record, 180 at Mile High Stadium.
- Franks needs one TD reception to surpass No. 3 Mark Chmura (17) on the Packers' all-time tight ends list. Ed West (25) and Paul Coffman (39) are next up.
- Green needs 6 yards to surpass No. 5 Clarke Hinkle (3,860) and 83 to surpass No. 4 Dorsey Levens (3,937). No. 3 Tony Canadeo (4,197) and No. 2 John Brockington (5,024) are also vulnerable this year. Green enters Sunday with 3,855 yards in Green Bay. At his current rate, he would break Jim Taylor's franchise record (8,207) in '06.
