Since its debut in July 1997, Packers.com has been a great resource for Packers fans for everything about their favorite team, including stories about players, information about team events and statistics.
Now, through a new partnership with the Elias Sports Bureau, the official statisticians of the National Football League, even more stats are available on Packers.com through a simple mouse click at www.packers.com/team/stats.
Chief among the new statistics are individual player stats dating back to 1932. Visitors to the site can select a particular year to view year-end statistics and then can view a player's career stats as a member of the Packers by clicking on a specific player's name.
The new feature also displays a "Stat of the Week," which each week reveals an interesting statistical nugget about the team. For instance, this week's "Stat of the Week" states: Charles Woodson is only the fourth Packers player since 1940 with a fumble recovery for a touchdown and an interception in the same game. The other Green Bay players to do that were Charley Brock (10/4/42), Tom Brown (11/17/1968) and Ahmad Carroll (11/29/04).
Fans can get involved directly, too, with "Ask Elias." Visitors to the Web site can ask a question regarding statistics and each week the Elias Sports Bureau will select one question and post the answer on Packers.com.
In addition to the new stats available from the Elias Sports Bureau, the Green Bay Packers have complete year-end stats for every season from 1940-2006 in PDF format (www.packers.com/team/stats/1919-2006.pdf), and also offer weekly cumulative team and individual, offensive and defensive stats from the 1996-2007 seasons (www.packers.com/team/stats/archive).
