    It was the early-1980s when they started to call the Lions’ front four “The Silver Rush.” The Silver Rush was a dominant force in the NFL and one of the premier pass rushing groups in league history. From 1978-1982, Al Baker, Doug English, William Gay and Dave Pureifory reached unparalleled levels of efficiency at getting to the quarterback, setting every franchise record for sacks and combining for eight Pro Bowl appearances.
