Why I think Suh appealing suspension is a bad move

What is Nadmukong Suh appealing? That he didn't do it? The evidence is indisputable on the replay. He stomped on Evan Dietrich-Smith's arm. He wasn't being held back by anybody.
Also, this another sign of not owning up to what he did - like his comments after the game.
From the Lions' standpoint, the appeal is a double-edge sword. On one hand, they need him, and if the suspension is reduced, they would have him for another game. But it seems unlikely. On the other hand, Suh has gone from the nucleus of their vastly improved team to a major distraction, and the Lions need to get this behind them.

The precedent for suspensions for on-field conduct is crystal clear: one game. Roy Williams, Elbert Mack, etc ,etc ... all guys who got suspended for illegal acts after being fined multiple times in previous weeks. All got ONE game.

Pat, this is ridiculous. Why shouldn't Suh appeal? Everybody appeals suspensions in hopes of it getting reduced or repealed, mainly to help their team. I didn't see you complaining when Cedric Benson appealed, so why now? It's amazing how you are putting Suh on a pedestal, but if it's reduced and he helps them win, you'll praise him. Now that, my friend, is a double-edged sword.

Suh needs to get this huge mistake behind him and move on.

He has to realize that his single-handed few mistakes may have cost his team a playoff spot that teammates worked like crazy all summer,etc. to achieve.

He seems to be a smart guy but I wonder if his ego will understand. After all, he rides into training camp in a limo.
