RIP Steve Sabol: Last Word on 19/9/12 | Tipped by Quickish |
As much as anyone in NFL history, Steve Sabol believed in the sport. He believed that if he could get people to see football through his eyes -- with his encyclopedic knowledge of the game's history, his insider knowledge of the characters, and most of all his innate sense for a great story -- it would be the biggest thing going. People would love football the way he loved it. (via SportsOnEarth.com) , adding: "He really did help create todayâ€™s NFL essence. Much of it was subtle. The brilliant coach. The intense linebacker. The audacious quarterback. The indomitable runner. These are NFL Films themes. And itâ€™s likely when you think back to a favorite NFL moment, you are really thinking back to how NFL Films framed that moment."
