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 3 Dope Sheet:
- Josh Bidwell (248) needs to get off seven unblocked punts to establish the second-longest streak in team history, surpassing Donny Anderson's 254-punt streak (1967-71). David Beverly (274, 1977-80) owns the longest stretch.
- Bidwell (248) also needs nine punts to surpass No. 5 Max McGee (256) on the team's career punts list.
- Ahman Green, who's advanced from seventh to fourth in the season's first two games, needs 183 rushing yards to surpass No. 3 Tony Canadeo (4,197).
- Nick Barnett's 14 tackles vs. Detroit Sunday marked the most by a Packers player since Nate Wayne had 16 Oct. 20, 2002, vs. Washington.
- Barnett's 14 stops were also the most by a Packers rookie at least over the last 10 seasons (since 1994). Because NFL defensive numbers haven't been kept as well as offensive stats, the team can't confirm, but believes Barnett's total is among the best ever in a single game by a rookie.
