"Championship teams don't take a step back," Suggs said, according to Comcast SportsNet Washington. "It's a reality check. (If) you don't show up to play in a big game like this, you get your ass whipped."
The only thing Suggs and the rest of the Ravens defense -- including a now healthy Lewis -- wrecked on Sunday night was a clear path to the AFC North title. Despite two losses to the Ravens this season, the Steelers can move into sole possession of first place with a win over the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night.
"We're in hell now," Suggs said, "but we have a vacation home in hell."
A bit dramatic? Sure. But then again, maybe the course "motivation through overreaction" is part of the syllabus at BSHU.
