  • I will leave it up to PC and JS, I like Breno out there. Total enforcer. If they can find someone better? Sure, but I like the consistency if they can get it.

  • He has got his head screwed on much better after the benching, I love the fact he won't take crap and will jump into a pit of wolves if asked. Thats the kind of guy you want watching out for a franchise QB, not someone that will walk back to the huddle and watch or do nothing when someone choke holds your QB.

  • Guard is a spot that MUST be upgraded. Ideally, we get a stud to start @ LG and bring competition in @ RG as well. If there's the ability to upgrade or bring in competition for the RT spot as well, I am all for it. I know there are bigger priorities, but when you have such a valuable player in Wilson and rely so heavily on the running game with Beast Mode, why wouldn't you want to protect and improve those two key aspects of our game?

  • I was Breno's biggest critic at the start of the season, and quite frankly, I couldn't stand him.

    He made MASSIVE improvement this season. As others have said: He is an absolute enforcer.
    He protects and stands up for Russell Wilson. I admire and respect that.

    I personally think that if Carpenter comes back healthy our line will be fine.

  • He has played very well during the second half of the season. He plays nasty and is always looking to get his butt up the field to make a second block. Hell yes we keep him!

  • Breno had a great 2nd half. He went from hearing his number called 2 or 3 times a game to almost never down the stretch.

  • His status shouldn't be in question. Bone-head penalties and playing to the whistle aside, he established himself as a top-10 RT. There I said it.

    He's above-average at run blocking.

    He's average at pass blocking.

    In today's NFL, that is a top RT. Being average in this league, at a non-premium position is valuable and adequate.

    He and Unger set the tone physically for Beast-Mode and Turbanator to do their thing. I think he's important not only for his play but for his place on this chip-on-the-shoulder, under-valued, under-drafted roster.

    GB picked him up as an undrafted FA, who converted to TE in college from defensive end and made him a RT. Sort of like Sweezy's situation. In other words, The Russian will only get better as he gains more experience. His best days are ahead and we should be Thrilled, seriously, with his play and optimistic for improvement.

    If he's the same player, or regressing, in 18 months, then we worry about replacing him. I would worry more about both G positions on the OL.

  • I'll admit I was one of his detractors for probably 2/3 of the sesaon. But then like a light switch he cleaned it up significantly the final 1/3. That's measurable improvement! That I'll take. Dudes a brawler but he has shown he knows when to use it now. Surely he will have competition from sweezy and possibly any FA or draft picks they bring in. Wish him well!

  • Keep him around, but I wouldn't anoint him starter or anything. And I doubt Pete will, either. Bring back and let him win the job again. I bet he can, unless we find an absolute gem in FA or the draft.

  • Keep him but we need tackle depth. We have little. I would say a tackle (who can play guard) in the third and sixth round this year.

    Nope. Sorry to disappoint you. In a fit of rage I said that I had never been more ashamed of .NET than I was while watching so many people quit on this team yesterday as they battled back and that (paraphrasing) 'win or lose I will not be back this season.

    The season is over. So sue me. Are you tracking all the other stupid shit people said in the gameday forum yesterday?

  • I love this guy, totally awesome, has the size, height and the attitude that perfectly fits into Tom Cables philosophy. I have no clue why people are even debating about this. Yes, he was new to team and took a while to adjust , which is natural specially with the different schemes. I saw him run over multiple guys and people from opposing team did not want to take him on. That is most of the battle in a line.

  • I hope they keep him for his value, honestly you can't spend money everywhere and this guy at a salary under 2 million is great bang for buck. He only allowed 4 sacks this year, pretty solid for a right tackle.

  • Sure. He cleaned up his act. This team needs a OG. Perhaps Carp can take the RG spot and replace Sweezy.

    Giacomini is not a problem.

  • Keep him, we don't want to mess with continuity on the O-line. We have addressed RG twice and basically came up empty, so if there is a change to be made it should happen there.

  • I'd vote to keep him. i think it was Shanahan who said something along the lines of "name me a team who thinks they cant upgrade at RT". I think continuity on the OL is underrated. I'd like to keep the same group together unless PC/JS think a clear upgrade can be made. Also, I have a feeling McQuistan is going to be this teams version of Chris Gray and I think Sweezy will make a big leap next year.

  • He is under contract through next season, so it's not like he is going anywhere. He is set to make $3.75M next season, so it's not like his contract is out of control. I think quite a bit of his inconsistency with pass pro was the fact that he had to compensate for Sweezy at times. I have said several times over the season that we need to invest in tackles in the offseason, and I stand by that statement. He has become good, but there is no reason we can't try to upgrade the position. Hell, Pete Carroll said that he would replace Earl Thomas if he could find someone better.
