With 33 days left until the start of the NFL season, our countdown to the big day continues.

Thursday, Sept. 4, is the day when the Green Bay Packers travel to Seattle to take on the Super Bowl Champion Seahawks.  

Over the  course of the next 33 days we focus on the number that represents the days remaining … and for today we take a look at two numbers, 34 and 33.

Two interesting numbers, I must say, in Packers history …

For number 33, let’s consider these guys: Jessie ClarkDoug EvansJim GrabowskiWilliam HendersonRay Nitschke (yes, really. He wore it as a rookie in 1958), Brandon SaineBarty SmithBrandon Underwood, and Keith Woodside.

Heck, we could write a single piece on every one of the players above.

But today, we are going to once again allow John Maxymuk, the author of “Packers by the Numbers: Jersey Numbers and the Players Who Wore them,” to take us back in time to focus on two players who helped the Packers win championships … Don Chandler and Mike Michalske.

Our most recent look was at number 35, Clayton Tonnemker.

Today, we start with #34, Don Chandler.
