Steelers Defensive Lineman Chris Hoke On NFL Rule Changes
Chris Hoke talked with Seibel and Starkey about a number of topics including the recent rule changes on hits, Ben’s fumble in the Dolphins game, and the teams next game against the Saints. When it comes to the hits in the NFL, Chris said all this focus on cutting back on helmet-to-helmet contact will last only a couple of weeks, and then things will go back to normal. Chris didn’t change his game based on the new rules, but said that has more to do with playing on the defensive line opposed to being out in the open field like the linebackers and guys in the secondary.
Chris wrapped things up with the guys by discussing the New Orleans Saints and the troubles they’re having as the defending Super Bowl champs, and describes from his personal experience what it can be like the year after winning it all.
