Whether you are a raider fan or not this should send chills up your spine when you think of autumn and football.

Steve Sabol wrote the poem. It was narrated by John Facenda. Sam Spence did the music.

Great clip!!

sad day.

guy is a very big part of growing up a fan of the NFL. time to set those DVRs on NFLN. they'll probably be playing a lot of NFL film stuff. they'll never be another like him. if there was a voice of the NFL, it would be his.

Football fans owe Steve and Ed Sabol a huge amount of gratitude (frankly so does the NFL).

Those two forever changed the way we watch the game.

Terrible news :(

Watching NFL Films as a kid just made the NFL so epic. The Sabol family did more for the game than could ever be quantified.

Seriously doubt there'd be an NFL Network today had it not been for the success of NFL Films..

Believe it or not, his father Ed is still alive (age 96).

I'd like to think that when the Panthers and Giants play Thursday, Steve will be filming from above (with John Facenda narrating).
