PACKERS BOAST HEAVIEST LINE
NOVEMBER 27 (Detroit Free Press) - Green Bay Packers will send the heaviest football line in the world against the Detroit Panthers at Navin Field Sunday afternoon. While Canton and the Chicago Bears can present a set of forwards who weigh well over 200, the Packers still have a wide margin over either of those teams. Green Bay's line Sunday will average 230 1/2
pounds from tackle to tackle. The ends, being only 200
pounders, will bring the average for the line from end to
end down to 221. The Packers will have such
heavyweights as Earpe, 240 pounds, Jean, 224 1/2
pounds, Cahoon, 234 pounds, Gardner, 224 pounds,
Woodin, 208 pounds, Rosatti, 216 pounds, Cyre, 214
pounds. The Packers defeated the Panthers, 21 to 0,
at Green Bay in the first game of the season. All three
touchdowns were scored on long forward passes,
thrown by Curly Lambeau, captain of the Packers,
O'Donnell, left end, taking two of them. In the backfield
with Lambeau will be Pid Purdy, Lew Lewellen, former
Nebraska star, and Swede Lidberg, All-Conference
fullback two years ago. Purdy is center fielder for the
Chicago White Sox during the summer and is rated as
the equal of Paddy Driscoll in dropkicking. He is a
sensational broken field runner. The Panthers will need
all their reserve strength for the Packer game as they
play the Frankford Yellowjackets in Philadelphia
Saturday and will arrive back in Detroit just an hour
before the time for the Green Bay game. This will be
the last National league game of the season here.
GREEN BAY PACKERS MAY PLAY CHICAGO BEARS
ON DECEMBER 19
NOVEMBER 27 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The
football season may be over tomorrow for the Green
Bay Packers after all. According to advices received
from Chicago today, there is a strong possibility that
the local professional eleven will lock horns with the
Chicago Bears on December 19 at Soldier's field,
Chicago, in a benefit game. The proceeds from the gate would go to the annual Christmas basket fund, organized by the late Patrick J. Carr, Cook county treasurer, several years ago. A.B. Turnbull, president of the Green Bay Football corporation, is in Chicago today conferring with George Halas, manager of the Bears and a definite announcement will probably be made Monday. Halas is anxious to have the Packers participate in the benefit game because of their excellent showing there on November 21 against the Bears. Green Bay is the best drawing card in the Middle West and the spectators would be assured of a great battle because the teams are closely matched and there is a great spirit of rivalry between them, Manager Halas says.
BEARS, PACKERS PLAN PRO GAME FOR CHARITY
NOVEMBER 27 (Chicago Tribune) - Representatives of the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers, National pro league football teams, will meet in the office of the county treasurer this morning to complete plans for the benefit game at Soldiers' Field December 19, the proceeds from which will be devoted to the annual Christmas basket fund organized several years ago by the late P.J. Carr. The permanent organization of the P.J. Carr Memorial Fund was completed yesterday, and letters of incorporation have been issued by the secretary of state.
PACKERS DETERMINED TO WALLOP DETROIT PANTHERS SUNDAY
NOVEMBER 27 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Green Bay Packers arrived here last night from Philadelphia for their game Sunday against the Detroit Panthers at Navin Field. The Packers came out of the Philadelphia game in fairly good shape and have high hopes of bringing home at least one victory from their road trip. The two games lost so far were no disgrace. The Green Bay pro eleven battled every minute against the Chicago Bears and the Frankford Yellowjackets and had victory in their grasp, only to see it fade away both times. Philadelphia had the finest passing attack that the Packers have seen in a long time, and it was not until the Quakers had scored two touchdowns that it was finally solved...HAD GOOD AERIAL ATTACK: In the first two periods virtually every Philadelphia pass was completed, while in the last two periods the Yellowjacket passes were mostly knocked down, with the exception of the one that Homan grabbed and ran for a touchdown, winning the game with two minutes to go. The Green Bay eleven worked out at Navin Field this morning and another practice session is due this afternoon for Capt. Lambeau is determined to win tomorrow's game of he has to use every man on the squad. Detroit is battling the Yellowjackets today and the Packers figure that when the fast and crushing Pennsylvanians get through with them they won't have much left for Sunday's battle against them. The Green Bay squad will leave Detroit Sunday night and expects to reach home late Monday.
GREEN BAY-DETROIT GAME PLAY BY PLAY WILL START AT ONE P.M.
NOVEMBER 27 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The Green Bay Packers in their final game this season against the Detroit Panthers should put up an exhibition worthy of the attention of Packer fans, and for this reason the contest will be reproduced in detail on the Gridgraph at the Columbus club community building Sunday afternoon. Fans are warned that the game will start at 1 o'clock, Green Bay time. Those who want to see the game should not permit the old habit of coming down to the auditorium at 2 p.m. get the better of them, or they will probably miss some of the best plays. Although defeated by the Bears, and the Yellowjackets on their Eastern tour, the Big Bay Blues have maintained their reputation as a fighting aggregation and it is expected that they will put up a real battle against Jimmy Conzelman's aggregation Sunday afternoon. Conzelman has always been a good drawing card in Green Bay and no doubt a great many of the Green Bay fans will turn out to see what he can do against the Packers on this occasion.
PANTHER LINE DUE FOR TEST
NOVEMBER 28 (Detroit Free Press) - Eager to overcome an early season setback, the Panthers engage the Green Bay Packers at Navin Field Sunday afternoon in the closing game of the National league season and thus clear the decks for the city title contest with Gus Nykiel's Tigers next Sunday. To conquer Green Bay, Detroit must show more than it did against Brick Muller's Californians in line play or the Wisconsin eleven is apt to repeat its success of the last meeting, which it won 21 to 0. The heaviest line in professional football is boasted by Green Bay, a forward wall that averages well above 200 pounds, and a stonewall through which few teams have been able to gain with any consistency during the season. It was the strong line that turned the Panthers back in the opening fray of the season...PANTHERS STRENGTHENED: Since that meeting Detroit has bolstered its line, but whether it will measure up to the visitors only can be determined when the teams collide. Only one team has been able to dent the Panther line in the last six games and the wearers of the blue and gold are confident that the Wisconsin team will be turned back in its every attempt to penetrate the first line of defense. Weather conditions will play a major role in determining the outcome. The Panthers boast a more varied attack, but the vaunted overhead game is apt to be tossed into discard should the field be in the same condition it was last Thursday. Dinger Doane, who reached the peak of his plunging ability against California, will be called upon to carry the burden after the first period, when Marion is to start testing the line...TO START SAME TEAM: Virtually the same team that started against Brick Muller's aggregation will face the Packers and, unless the field is in a sloppy condition, the contest should be a fitting climax to a hard season.
