Real in the Field Gulls podcast: Ben Muth talks about the Seahawks offensive line

Wondering how good (or how bad?) the Seahawks offensive line really is? Ben Muth is a former All Pac-10 tackle for Stanford and current writer at Football Outsiders, and today he joined Danny Kelly and Kenneth (me) to talk about Russell Okung, J.R. Sweezy, the two big losses on the o-line, Ben's time playing for Jim Harbaugh at Stanford, facing off against Marshawn Lynch and Justin Forsett, the zone blocking scheme, and a whole lot more.

Seattle's biggest questions headed into the season may be all along the line, so what better time to get a primer on the guys the Seahawks have and the ones they don't. It's a really good episode you don't want to miss!

Note: Ben talks about Max Unger and his ability to reach and hook shaded nose tackles or defensive linemen several times throughout the broadcast, so if you're unfamiliar with that technique, here are a few examples (from Danny's article on the Seahawks' defense-to-offense conversion projects). Watch Unger's first few steps carefully.
