Default Chris Hoke- Steelers 16-1 when he starts

this stat has been tossed around here for years, dating back to 2004 when hampton was ou fort the majority of the year and the steelers went 15-1 with hoke filling in.

anytime hoke has played there has been absolutely no noticeable drop off.

except this time there actually seemed to be improvement.

i have often said it is a shame to see his talent wasted on the bench and always wondered why so many teams switching to the 3-4 have never attempted to trade for him. im sure they have, but the steelers were just unwilling to depart. i also have noted how hoke loves being a steeler and has always given a nice hometown discount with his 2 FA contracts.

it looks like his atheletisizm added an extra dimenesion to lebeaus 3-4 (it atleast prevented him from being chopped down, laying on his back, or worse yet, injured.

he anchored and controled the line of scrimmage and was running to the edges real well.

i wonder how long casey's injury will linger.

i caught a lot of heat from the lemmings when i suggested letting hampton go because hoke would be the same or better. hampton got too fat. if hampton could have stayed 320-325 he would have been quite a force. IMO, he is just a fat NT.

Hoke was everywhere Sunday. Hampton has turned into a bigger snack and I don't notice the double team as in the past.

I have been saying this since last year...The only drop off is Hamptons 4 mil to Hokes pennys....Problem is Hoke is older too, so enduring a long season could wear him down.

There's no doubt Hoke is awesome and needs to play more, I mentioned this on another thread- Hampton, Hoke, and McClendon all have different styles and all need to be utilized properly. I haven't been impressed with Hampton so far this year either.

What a guy to have on the team... WOW... he certainly showed how good he is and how well he steps in. Hampton is good too but he's not an every down player and never has been... Nice game Hoke and glad to have you.

I say let Hoke play, that D-Line looked good yesterday, did anyone see what I saw, DL pressure, tackles in the backfield and a QB that at times was forced to make throws he didn't want to. If Hoke is the amswer then I say make the switch. I also believe it is time for more Heyward!!!!!

Hoke has been among the most valuable backups in the league for a long time. People were suggesting in the preseason that he might be cut for McClendon--insanity.
