Dave Boling of The News Tribune talks with Breno Giacomini about his steady improvement.
In Year 3 with the Seahawks, Giacomini earned a two-year, $6 million deal and the starting right tackle job heading into the 2012 season. The University of Louisville product represents the tough, nasty attitude offensive line coach Tom Cable wants his guys to play with.
Boling: Have you ever seen those levered devices into which you place a soda can to crush it flat for recycling? On occasion, Giacomini, a 6-foot-7, 320 pound offensive tackle, becomes that device.
Defenders are the can.
It goes like this: Giacomini gets his hands on a defensive end’s shoulders, and physically crumples him to the ground. Maybe it’s holding; maybe it’s assault and battery. But it’s danged impressive.
And recycling is good for the environment.
