When Ward was asked specifically on The Mack Attack Show if he thought bounties went on throughout the league, Ward replied, "I think it went on throughout the league, but at the same time it's uncalled for," said Ward. "The teams, such as Read more [...]

Chris Hoke On NFL Bounties: ‘I Never Saw Bounties With The Pittsburgh Steelers’

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Former Pittsburgh Steeler Chris Hoke joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN to talk about bounties in the NFL and how the players feel about this news coming out.

Hoke said players in the NFL look to hit hard so the opponent won’t want to make plays on you, and the Steelers were always looking to intimidate other teams that way, but he never heard of any bounties with the Steelers.

The Steelers heard of bounties coming from the Ravens locker room and Hoke said if they were doing that they’d be putting themselves out of position, and that would explain why the Steelers usually got the best of them.

We wrapped things up with Hoke making the comparison between Spygate and Bountygate.
