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

Packers OL J.C. Tretter1) 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...

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.

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...

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...

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.
