PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Ed Bouchette joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller to talk Steelers-Patriots as the two teams get ready to square off this Sunday.
Hines Ward won’t be playing against the Patriots this week, and Ed said he wasn’t surprised to hear that because Hines hasn’t practiced all week, and that it shouldn’t hurt the Steelers too bad consider they have a young stable of Wide Receivers that can run all over the field and spread out the Patriots defense.
To fans, Patriots week is a huge deal, but Ed didn’t notice much of a difference from the players in the locker room, saying that they’re handling it just like any other game on the schedule.
We wrapped things up with Bouchette discussing Bill Belichick’s Hall of Fame credentials, and whether or not Ed, who has a vote in the Hall of Fame, would bring up Spy Gate when it comes to decide whether or not Belichick gets in.
