Breno gets out of his stance quickly and into the play. He's got some crazy strength for an OT, allowing him to bully the smaller DEs whenever they lock up. His cut block isn't pretty, but it is effective. He's also fairly young. 27 years old with 8 career starts coming into this season.
Unfortunately Breno's fundamentals are wildy inconsistent. Every now and then he'll take a bad first step and just completely screw himself on the play. The good news is that when he plays with proper technique, he's very good. I only saw Breno get beat by a defender once or maybe twice the entire game. The rest of the time he shot himself in the foot with unforced errors and bad technique.
The flat out BAD.
Did I love this breakdown. Recommend you read it, great read. Feeling lukewarm on Giacomini. And very pissed when I see the breakdown of the 56 yard pass play to Tate. You better not screw us over like that when we're playing the Pats Breno
