If your main index page got hit, then that carries over to other pages. One of the typical 950 problems is 90%+ pages are penalized. A different typical problem is a few high value/popular pages are hit. The "more links to a penalized page" thing is so uncommon I doubt it's worth mentioning, although of course ther coule be a 100 or more specific reasons why a URL gets 950ed.
