Re: RIP Steve Sabol

It's hard to imagine where the NFL would be today without Steve and his Dad.

Just got through reading about his death on profootballtalk.com. Since childhood I've certainly enjoyed watching the programs that is NFL films.

Steve Sabol helped make football what it is today due to his epic films. This man deserves a slot in the HoF.

He deserves props along with his dad for helping make it into the sport that it is today. R.I.P. Steve Sabol.

Terrible loss. I was watching NFL Network when the news initially broke. Rich Eisen was visibly shaken as he read the news that popped up on his teleprompter.

Re: RIP Steve Sabol

What an awful thing. Didn't realize he was that sick. I remember watching the HOF programing when he called his dad to let him know that his father made it...and then seeing him w/out any hair at the enshirnment pushing his dad in the wheel chair. What a cool thing to share with your father. What a sad day.

R.I.P. He and NFL Films captured the essence of the NFL and what separates it from every other sport.

NFL Films and the Sabols - their impact is second to none.
