Giacomini to make first NFL start

Word out of Seattle is that former Cardinal and friend of the site Breno Giacomini will be making his first carer NFL start at right tackle for the Seahawks on Sunday.

Giacomini has spent most of his pro career to this point playing left guard, but News Tribune writer Dave Boling thinks he'll be able to handle the transition.

No, they didn't draft him as a guard, but I don't think that's part of the debate at this point. I wouldn't make too much out of this as a commentary on his future. I think right now, Breno Giacomini's advancement at RT makes him one of the best five healthy linemen. With Gallery likely out, I can see the sense in trying Carpenter at left guard and giving Breno his shot at RT. I think more than anything, they're scraping around to try to find a way to be the best they can this Sunday and they'll worry about future implications later.

Breno's footwork seems to have improved a great deal, and that allows him to be more efficient in using that natural strength. And, yes, he's got some nasty to him. This is not a guy who will allow Darnell Dockett to dig his elbow into his quarterback's throat.

Best of luck to Breno on Sunday.
