Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger isn't crying over the Chicago Bears loss of Brian Urlacher.

"You never, ever like for somebody to be hurt," said Rothlisberger. "But as a quarterback playing against one of the best defensive players in the game, I'm not upset that he's not going to be out there. I'm upset he's hurt, but not upset he's not going to be out there.
"Whenever you lose your quarterback on defense, or you lose that guy who's the Pro Bowler -- probably one of the best defensive players in football -- it's going to affect you somehow," Rothlisberger added. "Regardless if you want to say that you got guys that are going to fill in, yeah ,you know that and you have that confidence, but you're missing that guy."
Rothlisberger's only previous meeting against Urlacher and the Bears came back in 2005 -- when Pittsburgh won a snowy 21-9 contest at Heinz Field. Urlacher was a central figure in the game, but for all the wrong reasons. The middle linebacker got steamrolled by former Steelers running back Jerome Bettis on the goal line, a play and a victory, that many feel jumpstarted Pittsburgh's march towards winning Super Bowl XL in Detroit

with all due respect to uralcher....if butkis or nitschke or lambert were to break their wrist would they...
A) miss the season and get surgery
B) say screw it, put a club on it and wrap it up and play...

i would think B is the answer.....again, i dont know the pain he is going through, the only thing i have broke is my nose (3 times) but it seems that these guys are not as tough as they were

:Agree
When my grandchildren ask me about Jerome Bettis, I'm just going to show the clip of him steamrolling Urlacher. That play showed 2 things:
1. The running style of The Bus
2. How OVERATED Urlacher is.

this has nothing to do with the steelers, but do you remember in the 2003 playoffs when eddie george ran right at ray lewis and he ran him over out of bounds, than ray lewis while he was on his back took out georges legs and he fell over, the announcer were like "oh my goodness, ray lewis just took out eddie george" i am sitting there thinking, ummm george took out lewis......some people get too much credit and pile jumper lewis is one of them and urlacher was another, although i dont really mind urlacher....

Didn't need Bettis to run over Urlacher to show how overrated he is.

He has always been so overrated. Ben shouldn't even care.
