The Lions offense wasn't that good?

Johnnie Morton had 44 catches for 590 yards and 8 TD's.
...and this was all in an offense led by SCOTT MITCHELL at QB.
Sure, they were by no means a dominant team (only 1 playoff win during the Barry Sanders era), but the offense was good enough to lead them to playoff births in 1991, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1997, and then again in 1999 (the first season after Barry's abrupt retirement).
The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"
The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"
This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.
