Offensive line continues to be Seattle's problem

RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- It's become a yearly question posed to the Seattle Seahawks: "What's the deal with the offensive line."

It's only Week 3 and it's already being tossed out this week as the Seahawks prepare to host Arizona in an important divisional matchup on Sunday.

Seattle hasn't been able to run, hasn't been able to protect new quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and now will be without guard Robert Gallery for at least a month because of a groin injury that requires surgery.

Part of the problem is acclimation as the Seahawks fully embrace the zone blocking schemes of offensive line coach Tom Cable. Part of it is youth with two rookies starting on the right side of the line.

But everyone expected better production through two weeks.
