I don’t really have the words to eulogize Steve Sabol or anything like that – plenty of other folks have done a much better job with that anyway.

But I didn’t think it would be right if I didn’t acknowledge his passing because he, his father, and all of the folks at NFL Films changed the way we viewed and appreciated the game. I can count on one hand the things that really made me a football fan, and Sabol’s work is one of them. The artistry that he added to an often brutal sport was, more often than not, spectacular.

Here’s a piece he did on the Eagles-Cowboys rivalry.
