Corey Linsley is Dominating at Green Bay Packers Training Camp

Corey Linsley had one hell of a rookie season. But as good as he was a season ago, thus far in the first few days of the Green Bay Packers Training camp, he has looked even better. The 2014 fifth-round draft choice emerged as the team’s starting center a year ago, after an injury to J.C. Tretter forced him into the lineup, and it appears he is making the leap that head coach Mike...

Packers 2015 Preview: Why the Green Bay O-Line is Among NFL’s Best

Since the day that Mike McCarthy became the head coach of the Green Bay Packers back in 2006, he said he wanted to play a physical brand of football. Only, until recently, the Packers didn’t have the horses up front to make it happen. But, with some smart draft choices and solid development, McCarthy’s offensive line is now one of NFL’s elite. And one reason why McCarthy has...

5 Guys That Have to Be Good- JC Tretter

For the last two years I’ve been making a list of 5 guys that have to be good.  This kind of list isn’t obvious.  You’re not going to find Aaron Rodgers on this list.  These are guys that you might not think of right away regarding the overall success of the Packers. That’s the thing, though.  Aaron Rodgers is going to play well.  Clay Matthews, should he stay healthy...

J.C. Tretter 2014 Report Card – Packers Player Grades

1) Introduction: J.C. Tretter was expected to be the Packers’ starting center in 2014 following the departure of the former starter, Evan Dietrich-Smith. Tretter missed all of 2013 with a broken bone in his lower leg, so he entered 2014 with a huge unknown cloud over him. A strong preseason led many to believe he was the answer to the revolving door at center. 2) Profile: J.C...

Corey Linsley 2014 Report Card – Packers Player Grades

Packers casualty report: Playoff bye retrospective

While Aaron Rodgers injury is obviously on the minds of fans and the teams as they prepare for the playoffs, as the Packers secured a 1st round bye the team will have an extra day off and a different practice schedule, so nothing concrete will really be known until next week. Reports are that Rodgers suffered a fairly significant calf tear/pull and likely will have to play the postseason...

Corey Linsley: Why Green Bay Packers’ Top Rookie Should Get to Pro Bowl

Ted Thompson has made a lot of great draft picks. But when it comes to the offensive line, Corey Linsley may be the best pick he’s ever made. Linsley, a fifth-round selection out of Ohio State, was thrust into the starting lineup in Week One thanks to an injury to J.C. Tretter, who the Packers had groomed all off season to be their starter. It was thought that Linsley would have...

Green Bay Packers: The big fellas up front

On the Green Bay Packers, there’s no doubt about who the star player is.  There is also no doubt about who the most explosive players are.  However, one part of the team, or any team for that matter, that gets overlooked the most is the offensive line.  When a running back is having a great season, little to no credit ever goes to the offensive line.  But, when a running back...

Bye-Bye Bye Week, Hello Bears Week!

The Green Bay Packers went into their mid-season bye week on a down note last week. After reeling off four consecutive wins, the road trip to New Orleans saw the Pack face a rather desperate Saints team on its home turf where they usually come away with a win. And they did.Still, at 5-3 at the mid-point of the 2014 NFL season, the Packers are right where we thought they’d be (see...

Cory’s Corner: JC Tretter makes the most sense at left tackle

Ted Thompson admitted two things on Monday. One, he admitted that he made a mistake with first round pick Derek Sherrod. When Roger Goodell stepped to the podium in 2011, just about everyone was surprised when he told the world that the Packers had just selected Sherrod with the 32nd and final pick of the first round. Even before Sherrod went down with the tibia fracture, he wasn’t...

Packers Release of Sherrod Could Bring Back OL Musical Chairs

The Green Bay Packers released 2011 1st round pick Derek Sherrod yesterday.  The whole thing just makes me sad.  You’ll see a lot of people just label him a bust and a mistake but we don’t know that it’s true.  The injury that he suffered against Kansas City assured that he would never be the same player.  The fact that we never know what the original potential of Sherrod...

Packers activate JC Tretter, release former first round pick Derek Sherrod

The Green Bay Packers are welcoming back one promising young offensive lineman, and saying goodbye to another.

Packers: Offensive Line Shuffle

When the Green Bay Packers selected offensive tackles, Bryan Bulaga and Derek Sherrod in the first round in consecutive seasons, they were hoping they had found their future starting offensive tackles. Instead, they got two injury riddled careers. Bulaga has started 40 games in his five year career. Never starting more than twelve games in a season. Sherrod only started one game...

Rookie C Linsley's had one of the 'most impressive' starts, McCarthy says

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When JC Tretter was placed on temporary injured reserve the day before the regular season began, "temporary" was a fitting word to describe Corey Linsley's new role as the Green Bay Packers starting center. Subbing in Linsley was supposed to be a short-term solution to a difficult situation. Five regular-season games later, and with Tretter able to return to practice...

Not All Injuries Hurt

Injuries have hurt the Packers for years, but they’ve actually helped a bit this season. Because without them, Corey Linsley and Jamari Lattimore would likely still be on the bench. Instead, both are starting, and more importantly, both are playing very well. Linsley, an undersized fifth-round pick, is already better than Evan Dietrich-Smith, who signed with Tampa Bay as a free...

Packers Xs and Os Film Session: Corey Linsley May Not Relinquish Job

Photo credit: John Konstantaras/Getty Images The center position for the Green Bay Packers has been a case of musical chairs over the last four years. You could even joke around and say it was like the drummers for Spinal Tap. In other words, they haven’t had much continuity there since the Super Bowl run during the 2010 season.

If Corey Linsley keeps playing at such a high level, the Packers are going to have a problem when JC Tretter is cleared to return from temporary IR later in the season. A good problem.
