Yesterday we featured a Q&A with longtime NFL Films producer Jeff Jorden. If by chance you haven't read it, you can read it at this link. It's great insights from Jorden on what set Steve Sabol apart from his peers and the irrevocable bond he had with NFL Films. Today, a more personal perspective on Sabol's incredible impact.
If you polled fans heading into NFL games this past Sunday if they knew Steve Sabol, sadly I'm not sure 50% would be able to answer that question in the affirmative. Sabol wasn't a player, not a coach, not an owner, and not an announcer. His genius, accomplishments, and legacy have unfortunately flown a bit under the radar to a large swath of "diehard" football fans. It's a shame.
It's hard to imagine where the NFL would be without Steve Sabol's stewardship of NFL Films and even what the sports media world would look like without his innovative approach to filmmaking.no comments
