To measure Steve Sabol’s impact on the NFL — look no further than the NFL Films vault.
When I heard yesterday afternoon that NFL Films co-founder Steve Sabol passed away from brain cancer my first thought was a huge piece of my childhood has died. Steve Sabol along with his father Ed founded NFL Films and brought a sport that trailed baseball, college football and boxing to the forefront of American culture.
I don’t know where the NFL would be without Steve Sabol, but I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t be what we have today.
