"That's not James, that's a misunderstanding," Hoke said. "He goes out and plays hard. There's not a dirty ounce in his body. ... It's all about hard work for him. He's one of the first guys in here in the morning and one of the last to leave. He's a class act. It's good to see him back because he's a humongous part of our team."
"The fans here don't just love football, they understand football," nose tackle Chris Hoke said. "They know the game, so it's great. You'll be out in the town and they'll come up and want to talk about the game. ... It's exciting to be here. They love the Penguins, but it's Steelers football 365 days a year."
