GREEN BAY, Wis. - Mike McCarthys scouting report was brief. In fact, it wasnt really a scouting report at all. It was just a statement. "Corey Linsley is our starting centre," the Green Bay Packers coach said. "So, obviously, we feel good about where is." That McCarthy didnt feel the need to give his rookie fifth-round pick a public vote of confidence before his NFL regular-season debut was telling, given what Linsley is up against. He is starting in place of injured JC Tretter without having had a single snap with quarterback Aaron Rodgers in preseason play. He will be playing in the loudest stadium in the NFL, CenturyLink Field. He is facing the defending Super Bowl-champion Seattle Seahawks, who had the NFLs best defence a season ago. And he will do it on national television, in the NFL Kickoff game. You can watch the game live on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5 on Thursday at 8:30pm et/5:30pm pt. But given his quiet, do-the-job approach, the feeling among Linsleys teammates is that he wont be fazed by any of it. "He doesnt seem to get rattled. Mentally, hes sharp. Hes not a real fired up guy, hes not a real hyper guy. Hes just kind of a calm, collected guy. Nothing seems to really get to him," said No. 2 quarterback Matt Flynn, who spent much of the preseason working with Linsley, including Thursdays preseason finale when they started together. "Thats been impressive, the way hes been able to just jump in. "(The coaches told him), All right, youre the starter, so he just quietly walked up there and started taking reps. Hes been impressive. JC was a big loss. We all felt comfortable with him. But Corey has done a great job." Linsley is so cool about his new gig that he was even able to crack a well-delivered joke to reporters around his locker earlier this week. As he faced a series of questions about the oft-discussed noise in Seattle, he named Nebraska and Wisconsin as the two places where the crowds were the most challenging during his college career at Ohio State. Then, he zinged the schools biggest rival. "Michigan is quiet, really quiet. Probably the quietest stadium in the Big Ten," he said to laughter. It wont be quiet on Thursday night, and itll be Linsleys job to get to the line of scrimmage quickly and make the initial declarations based on what he sees from the Seattle defence. "Its all about the preparation and the week leading up to it. Its week-by-week no matter what level of football youre in," Linsley said. "You cant go back and say, Thats what we did against Wisconsin last year. It isnt going to work at Green Bay. So its all about the preparation. "(The primary job is) just getting everybody on the same page as quickly as possible. If everybody knows where the starting point is and they dont like the starting point, they can adjust it from there." The Packers plan to use their no-huddle offence extensively against Seattle, having spent the off-season and training camp working on it. But during the preseason finale against Kansas City with Linsley at centre, they ran by unofficial count only three snaps of no-huddle with Linsley on the field. Not only will Rodgers not have had a single in-game snap with Linsley before, but they will never have operated in the no-huddle together, either. "Coreys a smart guy. Hes played a lot of centre in his time and hes going to be expected to play well. So we expect him to be able to keep up," Rodgers said. "Ive said it a lot, but hes got two incredible guards on both sides of him who are going to help him out with the calls and make sure that hes ready. But Corey is going to study hard, hes very well-coached and hes going to be ready to go." Custom Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys .
