Weekend Trivia

When Gilbert Brown left, he took a little bit of the Packers' defensive persona with him. No more grave-digger dance, no more run-stuffing girth, and no more of the rare sacks that, when they did happen were well worth the wait. Brown's first career sack came at the expense of Randall Cunningham and the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 18, 1994.<P>
