Steve Sabol, an icon in the coverage of the NFL along with his father Ed, has passed away from a brain tumor, per NFL Network’s Rich Eisen. If you grew up watching football, you know the impact that Steve Sabol had on the game. He was a great guy, and a great ambassador for the game. In an era before twitter, the internet, and constant information, those NFL Films profiles, from the team videos to the Super Bowls to the Bloopers, were a constant companion.
Rest in peace, Steve.
Here are some Sabol interviews and NFL Films things:
