GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(BOSTON) - The Green Bay Packers staged a football exhibition at Braves field here Sunday afternoon which opened the eyes of the "show me" Bostonese and when the final whistle blew, the national champions were on the long end of a 21 to 0 score. A crowd of 16,500 witnessed the game. There was nothing to it but the Bays. After some preliminary skirmishing, the Packers went to work and the Braves went to pieces. Roger Grove counted the opening touchdown on a pass near the close of the first quarter and Harry O'Boyle added the extra point.
PASS TO LEWELLEN
In the second frame the Packers fooled around for a while and then decided to give the fans a thrill. Herber passed to Lewellen and the district attorney made the No. 2 touchdown, with Grove converting. The third score came just a few minutes later when Johnny Blood raced in between Musick and Pinckert, who were watching  him, and snatched a pass from Lewellen for the third marker. Then just to add insult to injury, Herber passed to Dilweg for the extra point.
HAVE LITTLE TROUBLE
The Bays didn't score in the closing quarters, but it was
a breeze as the Braves had been so badly scalped in 
the opening frames that the Bays couldn't fine any
hairlocks to hang on to. Whenever and these occasions
were rare, the Bays just stepped on the gas and put 
them back in their places. One fan was heard to remark
as he went out of the park: "That Green Bay team has
a heart. They could have made it 60 if they wanted to.
Never in my life have I seen such a football team. It is
the perfect eleven." Green Bay made all of its three
touchdowns on passes. A poor kick by Battles that
traveled only ten yards gave them their opportunity in 
the first quarter.
START LONG MARCH
Starting a march on their own 48-yard line, Bruder and
Herber carried the ball to Boston's 24-yard line for a first
down. A pass, Herber to Bruder, was incomplete and
then Bruder hit left tackle for ten yards. Herber dropped
back and tossed to Grove, who stepped over the line for
six points. O'Boyle came into the game and kicked the
extra point. The second and third scores came in quick
succession in the second stanza.
PASSES ARE GOOD
Starting another march from their own 24-yard stripe,
the Wisconsin boys advanced the ball to the Braves' 35
yard mark on two passes, Herber to Blood. Herber
gained eight yards at left end and Lewellen made it a
first down. Another Herber to Blood toss lost a yard and
then Lewellen took a long one from Herber for the score.
Grove converted with a kick for the extra point. Soon
after the kickoff Blood intercepted a pass from Pape on
Boston's 30-yard line, from whence another Herber to
Blood aerial boosted the score to 20. Blood took the 
ball away from three Boston men to make the marker.
SCORING IS COMPLETE
A quick pass thrown by Herber to Dilweg, who made a
beautiful catch added one point, completing the day's
scoring. Boston threatened just three time during the
entire contest. A fumble recovered by Gantenbein, a
pass intercepted by McCrary, and the line holding for
four downs stopped each of these. Even with these, the
home team never pierced the Packers' twenty-yard line.
​During the second half the western team seemed to be
toying with its eastern rivals. For a time it played safe
football, punting right back when Battles' punts drove
them into the shadow of their goal posts, and generally
confining themselves to straight football. When it 
became evident, however, that the Bostonians wouldn't
do much scoring they let loose an avalanche of passes,
tossing them even when they were on their own 10 yard
line and pulling fluke plays that did much to befuddle
the Braves. Green Bay emerged from the tilt unscathed,
every player on the squad seeing action and none of 
them receiving serious injuries.
COMSTOCK IS STAR
Rudy Comstock at his guard post was the only man to
go the full sixty minutes and during that time turned in
one of the finest exhibitions of line play seen in these
parts in many a year. He was constantly through like a
flash to catch runners behind the line or stop them for 
no gain. The backfield handled all of Boston's passes
with ease. On only one could it be could be said that
their man was free and that time Ernie Pinkert dropped
the ball. Barrager at center pulled out to block three of
the Boston team's 16 passes, all of which incomplete.
It would be next to impossible to pick any star for the day out of the ranks of the backfielders. For a time in the second quarter, though, it seemed that John Blood just couldn't miss the ball, whether it was thrown by one of his own players or by a Boston kick.
KICK SAILS OUT
The Packers won the toss and chose to have the wind at their backs. Boston kicked.  A low kick by Hinkle soon afterwards went out of bounds on the Green Bay 45-yard mark, but Boston failed to gain and returned the punt. After another exchange of punts, Englemann got 11 yards through left tackle but again Hinkle had to punt. Then came the short boot by Battles and the first Packer score. It was a fifty-two yard march, climaxed by the Herber to Grove toss. Green Bay then kicked to Boston and play alternated in the middle of the field as Battles and Hinkle exchanged punts. Starting on his own 34-yard stripe, Battles plunged for two first downs as the first quarter closed.
GAIN FIRST DOWN
Musick got a third first down on the Packers' 24-yard line, but Gantenbein recovered a fumble after a bad pass by the Boston center to relieve the pressure. A 75-yard boot by Musick put the westerners right in the well on their own 3-yard line but Herber punted to midfield and put the team out of danger. Hughes punted back to the Green Bay 23-yard mark, where a pass, Herber to Gantenbein, and a plunge by Herber gained a first down. Herber was forced to punt on the third down and after a return kick by Hughes Green Bay again advanced into Boston territory on a toss from Herber to Blood. This started the march for the second goal and fourteen points.
KNOCK DOWN PASSES
Soon after the third score on the pass from Herber to Blood, the half closed with the score well in the Packers' favor. Just before the whistle blew, Blood knocked down two Boston passes and Herber one. Englemann kicked over the goal line to open the second half. Pinckert ran to the Packers' 35-yard line on a nice run and Musick made it a first down. Here McCrary intercepted a pass and the goal line was safe. Bruder kicked to Boston's 26-yard line where Battles ran ten yards for a first down. Then Battles dropped back and threw a pass which Grove intercepted at midfield. McCrary got the yards on a spinner but Grove had to kick a short pass which went out of bounds on the home team's 33-yard mark. After another exchange of punts, the third quarter was over.
TRY MANY PASSES
The last period the Packers ran all over the field, throwing passes and double passes. Battles and Bruder exchanged punts and then Bruder intercepted a Pape pass, fumbled and McCrary recovered. McCrary and Englemann couldn't make it a first down, forcing a punt. Then Battles kicked to Grive, who made a zig-zag return of fifteen yards to midfield. Englemann ripped off a first down on two tries but three incomplete passes thwarted the last touchdown drive for the visitors. Musick made a nice run and reached Green Bay's 27 yard stripe, but here the Packer line held stiff for four downs and Boston lost the ball. Then came the fluke. Blood passed to McCrary, who fell in catching the ball. No one downed him so he passed again laterally to Grove, who ran backwards and forwards about fifty yards and in the end gained nothing. The play took about a minute but the ball rested in the same sport after the tag game was over. Two incomplete passes, Herber to Dilweg and Herber to Blood, and then a fifty-five yard kick by Herber finished the game.

EXPECT HUGE CROWD FOR PACKER-GIANT CONTEST TOMORROW
NOVEMBER 19 (New York) - Determined to continue their victory spree at the expense of the New York Giants, Coach E.L. Lambeau and his Green Bay Packer squad are all tuned up for Sunday's engagement at the Polo grounds, which is expected to draw the largest crowd that has seen a professional gridiron combat in Gotham this fall. The Packers tapered off a 
strenuous week of practice with a snappy signal drill at
DeWitt Clinton field this morning and all hands except
Nate Barrager were at practice. Johnny Blood made his
first appearance since Wednesday and he pranced
around like a two year old. The pass snatcher is still
bothered with his cold, but he is improving rapidly and
should be about eighty percent fit when Referee Tom
Thorpe toots his whistle for the opening kickoff Sunday
afternoon...TURN WRITERS LOOSE: The newspaper
barrage about the Packers is continuing and several of
the Gotham papers have turned their feature writers 
loose on the national champions. This of course makes
Tim Mara, the Giants' mogul, smile, as the publicity
heat has not been so hot for his games this fall. "The
press sure is giving Green Bay a fine ride," said Mr.
Mara during a conversation with the writer at the office
of the Giants' football club. "It should help the gate
immensely. Just think, the Sun has never carried a line
on professional football, yet they gave your club a few
squibs last Thursday night. You can tell my friends in
Green Bay, including A.B. Turnbull and Dr. W.W. Kelly,
that we are going to make things mighty interesting for
the Packers this Sunday. I think my club has arrived
and if we click like we did versus Stapleton last Sunday
there is going to be a lot of gloom in the Packers' home
town Sunday night." Coach Lambeau spoke over WINS,
the New York Journal station, Friday night at 6:10. He
discussed professional football in general and laid 
special stress on the Packers' machinelike play instead
of building up a foundation for one or two special stars...
TALKS FIVE MINUTES: The Green Bay pilot was on the
air for five minutes and he certainly pleaded the cause
of professional football in splendid style. Friday night a
number of the players attended the fistic fray between
Primo Carnera and Jose Santa at Madison Square 
Garden, and they didn't think much of it. One of the
gridders likened the bout to an amateur exhibition while
another claimed he would take the Green Bay amateur
cards every time. Dame Rumor has it that Red Cagle
won't see much action against the Bays, as he has a
broken bone in his hand. There is no confirmation of
this, however, and the Packers are inclined to think that
it is just another "bear" story sent out from the Giant
camp. As a matter of fact, some of the players would
rather have Cagle in the game than some of the other
New York backfielders as the former West Point flash
has set the world afire.
PACKERS BUSY THEMSELVES IN NEW YORK; MEET
GIANTS
NOVEMBER 19 (New York) - After a week of lounging in the hotel lobby, reporting for daily practice at the Polo Grounds and posing for metropolitan newspaper photographers, who have manifested a great interest in the Wisconsin prides, Coach E.L. Lambeau and his Green Bay Packers, front-runners in the National Professional league, will attempt to weld another link in their championship chain when they oppose the New York Giants Sunday. The present eastern invasion of the Packers has aroused wide-spread interest from New York to Boston and the accomplishments of the three-time title winners are commanding almost unlimited space in the sports sections of the larger cities. The photographers became so pesky as the Packers ran through their final drills yesterday that Coach Lambeau finally called a halt in the scrimmage and allowed the shutterbugs to shoot to their hearts' content. In addition to conducting their own practice sessions in a manner pleasing to the critical tastes of Coach Lambeau, the Packers have found time to visit several of the leading college teams and give some of the boys a few pointers. Coach Lambeau, when not impressing his players with the danger of overconfidence, usually can be found in the hotel lobby, where he is keeping an eye peeled for Herman Hickman, former All-American guard from Tennessee. Hickman is staying at the same hotel as the Packers as a member of a coterie of wrestlers. If he decides to return to the pro game, Lambeau wants first chance at his services. He once belonged to Green Bay but secured his release because of injuries and took up professional wrestling, which apparently isn't as strenuous as the gridiron game. Aside from Nate Barrager, giant center who is nursing an injured ankle, the team is in excellent condition. Statistics show them pacing the league in offense with 124 points and in defense with a record of only four touchdown by opponents this season. There is still a chance for either Portsmouth or the Chicago Bears to nose out the Packers in the race down the home stretch, so the players are anxious to conquer the Giants and increase their lead. Red Cagle is a threat that they will have to stifle in the Giant game, but aside from his tricky running the Giants haven't shown anything that the Packers shouldn't be able to solve if they play up to form.
BARRAGER LAID UP WITH INJURY, EARPE SHIFTED TO CENTER
NOVEMBER 16 (New York) - Nate Barrager, the Packers' brilliant center, will be out of the game for at least two weeks and perhaps longer as a result of a sprained ankle which he received in practice. The big pivot man was chasing a ball when he suffered an injury and for a time it was feared that it was broken. Barrager was rushed back from the practice field to the hotel and a physician summoned. A preliminary examination failed to reveal any fracture, but to make sure, the injured man was assisted to the doctor's office, where an x-ray was taken. The picture set at rest all fears of any break. Nate is confined to his room and hot applications are in order...ZELLER IS ASSISTANT: Bud Jorgenson is acting as the hot towel superintendent, with Barrager's roomie, Joe Zeller, serving as first assistant. The Packer squad is all roomed on one floor and there is always somebody in Nate's room helping him pass the time or curse the jinx. It never rains but it pours. Rudy Comstock, who played a sensational game against Boston last Sunday, has pulled up with a "Charlie horse" and he is refraining from practice. Comstock, too, is taking the hot towel treatment but he is expected to be fit within a day or so. The loss of Barrager is a blow to the club, as he has been playing a super brand of ball all season. Coach E.L. Lambeau, however, is making the best of the situation. He has shifted Earpe over to the center position and the veteran of 11 years will share the middleman's post with Red Bultman, former Marquette captain. The Packer squad is getting quite a play along publicity row in Gotham. The opening shot was fired by Burris Jenkins, cartoonist in the Evening Journal. He had a six column layout lauding the Packers as the greatest team of all time and some of his comments, brightened up by snappy sketches, certainly have the Bays a hand. Coach Lambeau is going on the air Friday night over the Journal station to talk professional football for five minutes...MANY ARE INTERVIEWED: A number of the players are being carted off for interviews with the sports editors, who evidently are beginning to be stung by the pro football "bee". John Xieran, dean of the sport columnists in New York City, is going to meet Coach Lambeau and several of his players at a round table discussion Thursday afternoon. Kieran was never so hot about the pro game, but he has warmed up this fall and Ambrose Gannon, New York representative for a Milwaukee newspaper, who is a great fried of the Packers, had little trouble in arranging for the interview. Henry McLemore, the United Press columnist, called on Coach Lambeau Tuesday afternoon and the Bay leader made such good progress in selling the professional game to the U.P. ace that he looked the boys over in practice Wednesday morning and will sit on the Packers' bench this Sunday when the Bays play the Giants. McLemore is a southerner and it didn't take him long to get real chummy with Tom Nash, Claude Perry and "Bigum" Rose. Tim Mara, the Giants' owner, is pulling for fair weather over the weekend. Business hasn't been anything to rave about at the Polo grounds in a football way but he has hopes that the Packers will draw some 20,000 Sunday. The metropolis is no different from the smallest country town. It will not support a loser in any branch of sport. Richard (Red) Smith, the pride of Combined Locks, was a Packer visitor on Tuesday night. The Kaukauna catcher is coaching at Seton Hall college and playing pro football with the Patterson, N.J. club. Smith's collegians is doing fairly well this fall despite the fact that it is only Seton Hall's second year in major competition...PLAYING FOR SETON: Ralph Morgan, brother of Don, the Green Sox backstop, is playing a great game for Smith and Co. at center while Mush Esler, the Kaukauna outfielder, is getting away big as quarterback for Seton. George Little, former athletic director at Wisconsin, who is now serving in the same capacity at Rutgers college in New Jersey, called up to say hello, and express his congratulations on the Packers' successful season. Little will be among those present at the Giants' game and he has promised to drop in at the Lincoln hotel after the contest and renew old acquaintances. According to reports from Staten Island, Dan Blaine, owner of the Stapleton club, is continuing on his housecleaning spree. Blaine was disgusted with his team's exhibition against New York last Sunday and it didn't take him long to get out the pink slips again. Frahm and Ledbetter, Dick Stahlman's friend, were cut loose. Orin Pape, ex-Iowa star who was a Packer for about six weeks a couple of years ago, has been taken on the Stapes. Pape has been with Boston up to now. Hill and Gordon, two of the Chicago Cardinal stars who were injured in the Brooklyn game, have been sent back to the Windy City by Dr. David I. Jomes, who owns the Cards. It is doubtful if either one of them will action again this season. The Cards have taken on Pete Toscani, the St. Mary's flash who was recently released by Brooklyn.
HERBER LEADS FIELD
NOVEMBER 16 (New York) - When Arnold (Flash) Herber of the Green Bay Packers snaps his arm back to throw a forward pass, the odds are better than even money the toss will be completed. National professional football statistics reveal that Herber has throuwn 35 passes of which 20 have been completed., five of them for touchdowns. His closest rivals, Earl (Dutch) Clark of Portsmouth, and Benny Friedman of Brooklyn, have completed 18 in 46 attempts. Herber also leads in punting with an average of better than 46 yards. Clark is the leading ground gainer with 419 yards.
NOT MANY PLAYERS ARE SUITED FOR PRO GAME, LAMBEAU
NOVEMBER 16 (New York) - Figuring that the coach of a football team which has lost but 33 games while winning 114 against the toughest competition in the business might have something to say, we journeyed uptown today to the hotel where the Green Bay Packers are lodged, and knocked on the door of Curly Lambeau. Curly, who looks as if he might still be good for five yards through the middle of the line, ushered us in, waved to a chair and said, "Well, I guess I know what you want to know. You want to know if it's true that a good pro club team could kick the daylights out of a good college club." "That's right," we said. "Well," Curly said, "I'll let Rockne answer that one. Several years ago, when Rock had one of his best clubs, someone asked him how it would go against a pro team. 'It wouldn't go good at all,' Rock replied. 'It would be a question of men against boys and would result in annihilation for the youngsters.'..MOST AREN'T CAPABLE: "That's the way I feel about it today. I don't see how anybody figures a college team to whip a pro club. Your average college team is lucky to have more than one player capable of making the pro grade. I've been to a lot of college games this year and I've seen exactly two players who looked as though they could stick in pro football." The two players, if you are interested, are Monnett of Michigan State and Newman of Michigan. Curly had nothing but scorn for the general belief that pro players pay little attention to training and a whole lot to self-protection. "College players train more religiously than pros, I guess, but not much more. We don't have a lot of set rules, but all the men watch their diet and that sort of stuff. Our men smoke if they want to and on Sunday nights those that like the stuff, are allowed to take a little beer. But the first time they abuse this privilege it costs 'em $150. The second time they get suspended for the year. But fines and suspensions are few and far between. You see, football is the main business of the players and they aren't throwing away jobs just for a little fun." Curly was asked about the business of pro players loafing a lot in a game...DON'T WASTE ENERGY: "I can understand why people might believe the pros loaf. You see, your professional players, like the professional in any other sport, doesn't believe in waste motion. He does just what is necessary and no more. College boys, with a lot of steam to work off, run around like madmen, thus giving the impression that they are working their heads off. But if you'll watch them closely, you'll see that about half their galloping is so much wasted effort." Did he like to have all-America players on his team? "Sure, if they're good. But I've seen too many all-Americans fizzle out in the pro game to go crazy about them. Here's a good example of that. Remember Ernie Pinckert, all-America halfback at U.S.C. last year? Well, we could have had Ernie but we took Clark Hinkle of Bucknell, who wasn't given anything more than honorable mention, instead. And if you've seen the two men play this year, you know that Pinckert isn't in Hinkle's class. Pinckert is good at a couple of things. Hinkle is a bear at all things. In fact, he's about as good a man as I ever saw."
PRESS MEN IN N.Y. SMOTHER PACKER SQUAD
NOVEMBER 17 (New York) - If the Green Bay Packers are kept busy next Sunday with the Giants as they have been the last couple of days bucking their way through sportwriters and news photographers, it will be a great ball game. It seems as if every scribe in New York is camping on the heels of the champions. Coach E.L. Lambeau has always practiced in DeWitt Clinton field because it was "out of the way" and few spectators gathered around. This trip it is a different story because the natives have discovered where the Bays are working and some five hundred spectators are generally around looking the gang over. Wednesday morning, news photographers from four different players and newsreels parked on the scene and three of these cameramen came near being parked somewhere else when interference ran through them while they were trying to get closeups...LET PHOTOGRAPHERS SHOOT: Finally Coach Lambeau called a halt in the drill and let the photographers shoot to their heart's content. Red Smith was at Thursday's workout and several of the players went over with him in the afternoon to his college and helped him steam up his gridders for the Lowell Institute game on Saturday. Rudy Comstock was the guest of Lou Little at the Columbia practice, while several of the other players scatted to the other collegiate grounds, which are more numerous here than near beer parlors on the Cedar Creek road. Nate Barrager's injured ankle is on the mend but it will be at least ten days before he can don the monkey togs again. Dr. David J. Jones of the Chicago Cardinals is giving a hand in treating Barrager and the Chicago doctor is an expert in this line. A delegation of the "rassling" trust checked in the hotel Wednesday night and one of the "knights of the grunt" is no other than one Herman Hickman, all-American guard from Tennessee who was signed by the Packers but did a fade out via the cracked ribs route. Last reports from the lobby had Coach Lambeau doing sentinel duty waiting for the bull necked Hickman but as there had been no contact...STAPLETON CHIEFS ARRIVE: The two Dans, Blaine and Daley, the Stapleton magnates, arrived on the scene late Wednesday and said hello. Neither of the Staten Islanders were smiling about the football situation but they did say that the Packers would get a warm welcome over on the "Island". Blaine is still looking around for football players but it is nearly a hopeless task at this stage of the season. The national champions are facing three tough games in this metropolitan sector, as the Giants, Brooklyn and Stapleton will all be keyed to high pitch for the games with the Bays. None of the clubs are high up in the percentage table but a win over the Packers would make a successful season for any of the three elevens. Coach Lambeau is fighting against the overconfidence angle. The players have breezed through so successfully this fall that the Bays seem to be in a class by themselves so far as pro football is concerned. However, the pennant is not cinched as yet and a couple of upsets in the next few games would put a different complexion on the pennant race entirely...STILL IN RUNNING: There is still a chance for either Portsmouth or the Chicago Bears to pace the Bays home to Pennantville and this is the method of verbal attack that Lambeau is using on his ball players. A backfield combination of Herber, Bruder, Hinkle and Blood has been used a lot in practice this week and it is quite possible that this quartet of backs may start against the Giants, although Johnny Blood may be held in reserve with either Roger Grove or Harry O'Boyle snapping the signals from the quarterback position. With Barrager on the casualty list, Jugger Earpe has moved back to the center position and he is alternating with Red Bultman in snapping the oval. Earpe is right at home at the middle man's job, as he was always one of the greatest passers in postgraduate football. The Bays' first string tackles, Hubbard and Stahlman, are looking forward to the fracas with the Giants rather hopefully. Both these star linemen get a lot of pleasure in whipping the New York club and they will be in there battling Sunday at top speed, particularly if Doc March is parading in front of the Giant bench, all togged up in his brown derby and top coat of ancient vintage...ATTEND HOCKEY GAMES: The hockey season opens tonight and the Packers will be well represented in the throng at the Garden. The players are giving the shows quite a play, with the top notch musical attractions very much in demand. Saturday there are a couple of major football games here and strings are being pulled to crash the pass gates, although there is no assurance yet that it will be clean picking. Primo Carnera, the mountain sized pugilist, is staying at the Lincoln and he does a lobby parade about a half dozen times a day, but he gets little attention from the Bays who don't consider him half as tough as Brute Trafton of the Chicago Bears or some of those other bruisers of professional football.
BAYS LEAD NATIONAL LEAGUE BOTH IN OFFENSE, DEFENSE
NOVEMBER 17 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers lead the NFL in both offense and defense after last Sunday's game. Having scored a total of 124 points in league games this season, the champs are far ahead of the second place Portsmouth Spartants, a team that has a total of 80 points. Boston and Stapleton, each having scored only 40 points, trail all teams in offense. Having had only 26 points counted against them the Packer also lead in defense with the Chicago Bears second. The Bears have had 37 points scored on them this season. Stapleton, with 132 points for its opponents, is the weakest defensive team in the league at present.
NEWS AND NOTES
BULLETIN
NOVEMBER 14 (Boston) - The Green Bay Packers left here this noon for New York where they will spend the next two weeks. Coach E.L. Lambeau's squad was in the best of spirits as it headed for Gotham and the players were little the worse for scalping the Braves.
BOSTON NEWSPAPERS ARE HAILING PACKER FOOTBALL MACHINE
NOVEMBER 15 (New York) - The Packers stared preparation for the game with the New York Giants here Tuesday morning and all hands were on deck for the workout at DeWitt-Clinton field. It was a spirited practice, in which every man on the squad participated.
The national champions came out of the Boston game
little the worse for wear. None of the players was very
seriously banged up. Both Hinkle and Herber have 
bruised left hands while Dick Stahlman's shoulder is
giving him a little trouble. It is the unanimous opinion of
the players that the Giants have hit their stride and the
toughest kind of a ball game is expected this weekend..
VETERANS EXPECT TROUBLE: One of the Packer
veterans said: "We'll have trouble this Sunday. Both Bo
Molenda and Bowdoin will play their heads off to beat
us and the rest of the Giant outfit can step some once
they get in stride. The way they took Stapleton last
Sunday shown that they finally have started to click."
Coach E.L. Lambeau intends to work the squad out 
daily and has also scheduled backboard drills for
Wednesday and Friday night. Practice will be secret at
DeWite-Clinton field and the Bay helmsman plans to
put in some new stuff offensively to use against the
Giants. There is no question but that the Packer attack
has improved a lot in the last three weeks. The aerial
game, which wasn't so hot in the early part of the year,
is now functioning perfectly and Herber's sensational
tossing of passes is beginning to make the players 
forget somewhat about Red Dunn. The Boston papers
were loud in their praise of the Green Bay club and
several of the scribes ran out of adjectives in trying to
describe Green Bay's overhead game. One of the
papers even ran a four column pen sketch of the bare
headed Herber, showing how his bullet like passes 
made the Braves dizzy...GET WARM GREETING: The
Packers got a warm reception when they checked in at
the Lincoln hotel here. Nearly all of the hotel executives
were on the job to extend a glad hand and make the 
Bays feel at home. Even the bell boys took a hand in
the proceedings and it wasn't long before they were
putting the bee on the players for "Annie Oakleys" to
Sunday's game. The Chicago Cardinals, chaperoned by
Dr. David J. Jones, are also staying at the Lincoln and
they ambled around to say hello. Coach Jack Chevigny
and his hirelings are not in any too good a frame of 
mind as a result of the 3 to 0 decision they suffered at
the hands of Brooklyn last Sunday. The upset hurt all
the more as a result of Friedman's fade out from the 
game in Chicago last month. The Cards play Stapleton Sunday and they are promising a fine licking to the Islanders. Tim Mara, owner of the Giants, stopped at the Lincoln hotel and talked shop with Coach Lambeau...EXPECT HUGE CROWD: Business at the Polo Grounds hasn't been any too good for the Giants this season, but Mr. Mara expects the Packers to attract quite a turnout on Sunday. The New York papers have started earlier than usual to give the Packer-Giant game some ink and the New York management is also carrying a radio advertising campaign to build up interest. Comment from the Boston papers follows:
Bill Coyne, Post: "The Passing Show was staged at Braves field by the Green Bay Packers Sunday. the bare-headed Herber and his consorts filled the air with footballs and ran the Wray-men ragged. These Badgers were billed as the greatest football team on earth and they lived up to advance notices."
Arthur Sampson, Herald: "The Green Bay Packers are the greatest football machine that I have ever gazed upon in my twenty years of football reporting. The Badgers did everything easy and simply played with the Braves. My associates in the press box were dumbfounded by the football exhibition, which was the most perfect ever staged in Boston. When better football is played, the Packers will play it."
Jack Thompson, Boston: "From end to end the Packers are a great unit and there was not a noticeable difference in the replacements. The ball carriers, every one of them, are experts. Every second of the game, Green Bay was on the alert, springing line plays, surprise double passes and an air attack which was worst the price of admission alone to see. That Blood-Herber forward passing combination was marvelous."
John Mooney, Post: "It was the most spectacular forward passing spectacle ever out on in this part of the football universe. Green Bay produced a passer, Arnie Herber, who has it over Benny Friedman like a tent. The Bay receivers were always on the sport and sometimes we wonder if they didn't have glue on their fingers, as they seldom dropped a toss." 
Arthur Duffy, American: "Another display of the confidence of this great Packer team in its ability to pull any sort of a play at any time was the scoring of the third extra point by a forward pass. Grove had placekicked the second extra point in the left field bleacher, which housed the half dollar fans (there were about 5,000 of them) and some trophy seekers had grabbed the ball and refused to return it to the field. After some delay, Coach Lambeau of the Green Bay team tossed out another ball, as the Braves didn't have one fit to use...CAN'T LOS ANOTHER BALL: The third Green Bay touchdown came soon afterward and after the Packers lined up to placekick it came to their attention that they would be feeding their own ball to the hungry bleacherites if they kicked it. Without attempting to conceal what they were going to do, Herber moved back from his protecting position to a place behind center, took a pass from the pivot man, faked holding the ball for Grove to kick and then casually tossed to Dilweg in the end zone, thereby scoring the extra point and at the same time saving a $10 bill for the club management. Who says these Badgers from Wisconsin are not thrifty and smart?"
Harvey Leonard, Record: "We saw the perfect football team at Braves field Sunday afternoon and we don't ever expect to glimpse another club like the Green Bay Packers. It is my opinion that the Wisconsin club could have doubled, possible tripled their score if they had not coasted during the final half and made it look like a football game."
SCORING LEAD IN PRO LOOP HELD BY CLARK
NOVEMBER 15 (Green Bay) - Scoring leaders in the NFL had a dull weekend, as far as the first three scorers were concerned, with Dutch Clark of Portsmouth adding but one point to his total for the year, which is now 37. Grossman of Brooklyn failed to tally, and the other gridder tied for second place, Red Grange of the Bears, was on the sidelines with an injured ankle. It was a field day, however, for Chris (Red) Cagle, late of the Army, who put on a burst of speed and tallied his third and fourth touchdowns of the season for a grand total of 24 points. The rest of the field follows in much the same manner as that of a week ago.
LAMBEAU AGAIN WAS PACKER SCORING LEADER IN 1922
NOVEMBER 19 (Green Bay) - Although they had not arrived in the days of powerful schedules, and has not developed the attack which a few years later was to sweep them to the National league honors, the Packers of 1922 were a formidable lot, and won their share of victories, the scoring columns show. Capt. E.L. Lambeau, who led the team in scoring for the 1921 season, repeated in the following season, when he chalked up 30 points on four touchdowns, three extra
points and a field goal. Second honors went to Charlie
Mathys, Bay quarterback, with 15 points, and third to
Howard (Cub) Buck, a newcomer to the team, with 11
points. The Packers, even then seeking a national title
but being more immediately concerned with capturing
the state title, opened their season against an invader
from Illinois, and lost to Rock Island, 19 to 14. Fullback
Taugher and halfback Cronin scored the Green Bay
touchdowns, Lambeau kicking two extra points...
WHEELER GOES OVER: A touchdown by Cowboy
Wheeler, Packer end, was all the contenders could do 
against Racine on Oct. 8, 1922, and they were trimmed 10 to 6. A late field goal by Gillo, who spoiled the Bay chances for a victory in 1921, played a prominent role in the trimming. The following week the Bays again were downed, losing to the Chicago Cardinals, 16 to 3, the only Packer score coming on Mathys' dropkick. Then the Packers relapsed into two scoreless ties, one played against Milwaukee, Oct. 22, and the other against Rock Island the following week. They came out of the scoreless habit, however, in time to beat Columbus, 3 to 0, on Cub Buck's placekick. Some sensational football gave the Packers a 14 to 6 decision over the Minneapolis Marines at Green Bay, Nov. 12, when the winners scored two touchdowns in the last 10 minutes of play. Lambeau and Mathys crossed the last chalk mark, and Buck kicked the extra points. Mr. Gillo, who always was a nuisance to the Packers, bobbed up again with a field goal to hold the Bays to a 3 to 3 score against Racine, the Packer goal being kicked by Capt. Lambeau. Curly's two touchdowns and his extra point enabled the Packers to defeat the Milwaukee Badgers the following week, 13 to 0. A 10 to 0 victory over Duluth, with Lambeau getting a touchdown, Buck kicking the extra point and Cub also booting a field goal, was picked up on Thanksgiving day, and the Packers ended their season, Dec. 3, taking the state title by beating Racine, 14 to 0. Mathys and Usher scored touchdowns in this finale, and Buck kicked both extra points.
HOW COME PACKERS ARE CHAMPS? IT'S REALLY A WEIGHTY PROBLEM
NOVEMBER 19 (Green Bay) - Coach Curly Lambeau of the Green Bay Packers professional football team likes his players with lots of beef - and that's probably why they're perennial champs of the circuit. Here's the way the Packers stack up in weight: Claude Perry, tackle, Alabama, 201; LaVern Dilweg, end, Marquette, 192; Johnny Blood, halfback, Minnesota, 195; Hurdis McCrary, fullback, Georgia, 206; Verne Lewellen, halfback, Nebraska, 178; Wuert Englemann, halfback, South Dakota, 195; August Michalske, guard, Penn State, 215; Tom Nash, end, Georgia, 204; Jugger Earpe, tackle, Monmouth, 257; Cal Hubbard, end, Centenary, 225; Roger Grove, quarterback, Michigan State, 180; Hank Bruder, halfback, Northwestern, 199; Milt Gantenbein, end, Wisconsin, 210; Dick Stahlman, tackle, Chicago, 215; Nate Barrager, center, Southern California, 215; and Harry O'Boyle, quarterback, Notre Dame, 180.
LAMBEAU HELD SCORING LEAD IN EARLY DAYS OF PACKERS
NOVEMBER 18 (Green Bay) - The highest scorer of their team in the days when the Packers were attempting to carve a football reputation for themselves
in state and midwest gridiron circle is the man who now
leads the team, statistics concerning early National
league games reveal. When Green Bay played for the
first time in the professional circuit, no man on the team
scored more points than E.L (Curly) Lambeau, then a
halfback and now coach of the Packers. Lambeau
counted up 28 points for that season after Oct. 23, 1921
when the Bays met and conquered the Minneapolis
Marines in their first league contest. Lambeau booted
the extra point after fullback Schmael's touchdown on 
that day to give the young Packers a 7 to 6 victory over the Marines and to make a crowd of some 3,000 fans delirious...EACH SCORE TOUCHDOWN: De Moe, Packer end, and Schmael each scored two touchdowns in league competition to end as runner-up to Lambeau for Green Bay scoring honors. Single touchdowns were made that season by Berry, Howard and Abrams, all coming on Nov. 6, when the Packers routed Evansville, 43 to 6. After the Minneapolis game, which formally ushered the Packers into what was then known as "the American Professional Football league", the Bays tackled Rock Island, getting a 13 to 3 trouncing. Lambeau made three points on a field goal...KICKS FOUR GOALS: Then Green Bay whipped Evansville, touchdowns being pushed over by De Moe, Berry, Schmael, Howard, Abrams and Lambeau, with Curly kicking four points. Lambeau was the whole show on Nov. 12, getting two touchdowns and two extra points as the Packers won from Hammond, 14 to 7. Curly connected for a field goal as the Packers tied the Cardinals, 3 to 3, but nobody on the Green Bay team did any scoring the following week, when the Chicago Staleys (Bears) smacked down the newest league entry, 20 to 0. The Bays ended their fairly successful season by tying the strong Racine team, 3 to 3, a late field goal by Gillo preventing a Packer victory. Lambeau got the three points for Green Bay.
NAME THORPE AS OFFICIAL OF N.Y. GAME
NOVEMBER 18 (New York) - Tom Thorpe, one of the leading officials of eastern football, has been named by President Joe F. Carr of the NFL to handle the New York-Green Bay game which will be staged here Sunday afternoon at the Polo grounds, before what is expected to be the largest crowd of the season. Working with Thorpe will be Col. Fred B. Mumma, who was a principal in a Michigan-Wisconsin fracas some years ago at Madison, as umpire; Tom Hennessy of Brown, umpire, and John Reardon, New Hampshire, head linesman. Tim Mara, who backs the New York club, claims his advance seat sale for the Packer game to be more than double any other contest this season...BUILD UP PACKERS: The Giants' owners is now beginning to figure on at least 20,000 as the newspapers are building up the Packers to the skies. According to veteran newspapermen with whom the writer has rubbed elbows with since his arrival in Gotham, the Packers have been getting more "ink" than all the other pro league teams combined. As far as the New York press is concerned, one would hardly know that the Chicago Cardinals and Stapleton were going to play on Staten Island this Sunday. Mike Dwyer, who owns the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York American hockey club, was the host to the Packer squad at a supper Thursday night and immediately
Green Bay Packers (8-0-1) 21, Boston Braves (2-3-3) 0
​Sunday November 13th 1932 (at Boston)
thereafter the Packers took in the puck chasing exhibition at Madison Square Garden. There was action galore in the hockey game and one of the Packers was heard to remark that the only difference between football and the ice sport was that the hockeyists were extra equipped with skates and a club. The jinx seems to be camping tight on the Packers' trail since their arrival in the Broadway sector, as Johnny Blood has turned up on the sick list with a severe cold which has confined him to his room. The vagabond halfback, who has been bobbing into the touchdown limelight frequently of late, is getting the best of medical care and Coach E.L. Lambeau hopes to have him in uniform on Sunday although he is not likely to start the encounter...LINE UP DEFENSE: The Bay pilot staged a special session on defensive tactics at practice and it is probable that, with Barrager out of the game, whenever a six man line is used, Jugger Earpe will move into left guard and Michalske will roam behind with the backfielders. Chuck Clancy, who next to Ken Strong was considered the best of Stapleton's passers, will play against the Bays Sunday as Tim Mara completed a deal with Dan Blaine of the Islanders for the former Holy Cross star on Thursday. The Giants were a bit weak on the air attack but with Clancy in their lineup, they should be able to take the overhead route frequently, and this only means more trouble for the Bays. Coach Steve Owens of the Giants denied that he was "loading" up for Green Bay, and he explained the Clancy deal by saying that he had been after the Stapleton back ever since Jack Hagerty left his squad to take over coaching duties at Georgetown university. The Packers are wondering if there will be any stars from other teams bobbing up with the Giants this weekend. Each day the crowds at DeWitt Clinton field are increasing and it is no longer a secret spot. It is likely that the first of the week the Bays will do their practicing either at the Polo grounds or Ebbets field...FORMER BADGERS DROP IN: Among the visitors at the Packer headquarters on Thursday were Louis Cook and Ray Larson. Cook is with a prominent lumber concern in Gotham while Larson is making good progress as a free lance writer. Both former Badgers will be at the game Sunday rooting for the Packers. Newspaper stories from Wisconsin carrying the stories about the cold and snow are making the players glad they are on the sunny side of Broadway here these days. The weather has been ideal and there is just enough snap in the air to make it just right for football. At the present time, the forecast for the weekend weather is very encouraging. Jim Bowdoin, former Packer tackle, who started the season with Brooklyn and is now with the Giants, stopped in at the hotel to say "Howdy" to his former teammate. Nothing has been seen of Bo Molenda, however, and according to stories drifting down from the New York camp, Molenda is threatening all kinds of vengeance in the combat this weekend...MOLENDA STILL PEEVED: The former Michigan star is still pretty much peeved about his pink slip exit from the Green Bay squad. Coaches from some 30 odd eastern colleges have been invited to attend the Packer game as guests of the New York management. A special section of seats has been set aside for the collegiate mentors and owner Mara will be on hand to extend the glad hand. It is understood that the Giants' owners is looking around for a new pilot next year and that the invitation was extended so that he could get in immediate contact with several of the coaches that he has an eye on. There is only one way Mara can get out of the red ink and that is cleaning house thoroughly and putting a winner on the field. That is what he intends to do next season.
