Checking in from CenturyLink Field

SEATTLE -- The Tom Cable Social Hour has nearly run its course here at CenturyLink Field.

Cable, entering his first season as the Seattle Seahawks' assistant head coach/offensive line, has been mingling on the field with associates from his days coaching the Oakland Raiders.

The Seahawks and Raiders continue to warm up for the NFL's final exhibition game of the 2011 season, set to kick off at 7 p.m. here on the West Coast (update: make that 7:30).

How the Cable-coached Seattle line fares will be a leading storyline coming out of the game.

710ESPN Seattle's Mike Salk and I discussed that issue and others around the NFC West, including quarterback situations, during a conversation earlier Friday. Audio here.
