The media gives Ben Roethlisberger a bad rap all the time, and he has two Super Bowls.
Do you see the difference though? Rothlesberger is knocked for what he did off the field. Cutler is knocked for what he appears to do on the field. The truth is that I don't even like the guy. He is one of my most hated players. However, he does get a bad rap and he is tough as nails imo. Did you see him last night? He took the shot of the year and finished the game.
Look at Chicago. Look at the QBs they went through and the years they spend trying to find one. They were just like us and now they have a franchise QB. A guy people want to play for. You look at what that guy has done over the past few years and it's pretty damn impressive. We need a guy who will yell at a linemen now and again. It's part of his job imo.
Urlacher in 2011
“It doesn’t make any sense to me,” Urlacher said Thursday during an interview with NFL Total Access on the NFL Network. “It was bad timing with the injury, and everyone says he was pouting on the sideline. When I broke my wrist two years ago, I was on the sideline pouting too. No one said anything about that. It was a regular season game, but you’re not happy to be out of the game anytime you get hurt. You’re pissed off and don’t want to be on the sideline, but you can’t change it. That’s the way it is. But it was undeserved all of the bad media he got. Jay’s a tough guy. He takes a lot of hits, gets up, [and] goes back every play and never complains about it.”
