Silverdome era a fond one

Looking back, unless you're 60 or older, the Lions golden era for the
past 50 seasons will be their time at the Pontiac Silverdome.
They won a playoff game.
They had the best running back in the game.
They fought difficult battles to get into the playoffs under Wayne
Fontes, unfortunately, it was every other year and they typically
were blown out of the first playoff game. BUT THEY WON at least some
The Ford Field years have been terrible, shameful and worthy of a
small rural private high school.
We'll look back at that concrete monstrosity and think, wow, those
were the seasons.
Unless, of course, you're over 60 and you remember the 1950s with
Bobby Layne and actual championships.
