Well, this is an exciting one!

This week on the Seaside Chats with Kenneth Arthur podcast, I’m joined by Seattle Seahawks/NFL/football legend Walter Jones. The big man (@bigwalt71) and I talked about a number of topics, but none more key to Seattle fans than Tom Cable and the current state of the offensive line. Jones gets into his thoughts on the job of an offensive line coach, what Tom has to go through with these guys, the amount of time it takes for a player to catch up to NFL speed and systems (Walt himself made just one Pro Bowl in his first four years), and the zone blocking scheme.

We also discuss the importance of Marshawn Lynch, if he’d have liked to play for Pete Carroll at some point, Jon Ryan, switching to Oday Aboushi, PFF grades, what it was like for him to give up a sack, and a ton more over these 30 minutes.

Walter Jones is reppin’ Fancom.Fans, a social media platform which debuts on Saturday, September 30, and gives fans the opportunity to interact with players without worrying about trolling, bullying, or profanity.

(Walt lost connection for about a total of one minute in the middle -- but he comes back and we close it out, FYI)

Then listen to my interview with actor/improviser/Indianapolis native Charlie Lind, who joins me this week to talk about growing up in Indiana, being a Colts fan, Peyton Manning's legacy, the problem(s) with Jim Irsay, Chuck Pagano, and the "talentless" Indy roster. I gotta give A TON of credit to Charlie for spittin' the truth about the Colts' problems from a Indy fan's viewpoint.
