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 5 Dope Sheet:
REUNION WEEKEND, DATELINE GREEN BAY: Former Packers head coaches Mike Holmgren (1992-98) and Ray Rhodes (1999) return to face off against former Holmgren pupil Mike Sherman.
- The Packers have had only 13 head coaches. Sunday is believed to be the first Packers game ever involving as many as three of those 13.
- Sunday will mark the fourth time in team history a former Packers head coach stands on the opposite sideline. In fact, Sunday marks the 51st anniversary of the first such occasion, when Curly Lambeau brought his Redskins to Marquette Stadium in Milwaukee.
HE'S IN GOOD HANDS: Brett Favre's offensive line has allowed the fewest sacks in the league, one.
- According to Elias Sports Bureau, the Packers have gone three consecutive games without allowing a sack for the first time in team history (statisticians began tracking sacks in 1963).
- The Jets were the last NFL team to go three/four games without allowing a sack (four straight, December, 2001).
- Since Chris Claiborne sacked Favre in the third quarter Sept. 7, the Packers have run 114 passing plays.
*Since 2001, Green Bay's 50 sacks allowed are also the fewest in the NFL.
AHEAD BY TWO SCORES: Since 1992, when Green Bay establishes a lead of at least two scores (9 points or more), at any point in any game, the team is 96-7.
- The Packers are 26-1 under Sherman, having won 25 in a row. Their only loss was at Miami, Oct. 29, 2000.
- Over the last 12 seasons at home in games with at least a 9-point lead, the team is 64-1, its only Wisconsin blemish a Sept. 12, 1993, loss to Philly.
