Railbird Central Podcast: New Starter at Center

Nathan Jahnke of ProFootballFocus.com discusses J.C. Tretter's promotion to the Packers starting lineup.

Episode 702

After Mike McCarthy named J.C. Tretter the Green Bay Packers' starting center, we ask Nathan Jahnke of ProFootballFocus.com about how Tretter has performed and also about the circumstances that led to him starting like Corey Linsley's injury. After the interview, I review the players returning from injury led by Jordy Nelson and including Jake Ryan and Mitchell Henry as well.

I like listening to Nathan Jahnke. I don't always agree with his assessments, but I don't think he is a homer. I think he will tell it the way he sees it.

So, Tretter, in a limited sample size, was better than Linsley. Barclay in this preseason at just center has been brutally bad (3rd worst center). Strangely, pass pro has been better than run blocking. Got it.

I've see 2 writers in the media describe Barclay's play as solid. I did not agree.
