Roethlisberger's finger, pride hurting as losses mount

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's partially dislocated right index finger and his pride are both hurting nowadays.

The Steelers are winless after four games for the first time since 1968.

Roethlisberger said the Steelers might be the worst team in the NFL.

"I don't think that's a far stretch," Roethlisberger told reporters. "If you look at records, which I'm always a big believer of -- wins and losses, not numbers -- then record-wise we're one of the worst teams in the NFL.

"I take pride in winning football games more than any numbers. That's what I've based my career on so far, wins and losses, so it definitely stings. It's painful to lose games because I'll put it on myself."
