NFL Films' Steve Sabol Has Seizure

Steve Sabol of NFL Films speaks on behalf of his father Ed after he was named into the 2011 Pro Football Hall of Fame class during an announcement at the Super Bowl XLV media center.

Steve Sabol, the president of NFL Films, was in the hospital over the weekend after having a seizure. He was in Kansas City, Missouri, to accept an award on behalf of NFL Films when the seizure happened. Per NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, Sabol is alert and stable.

Sabol is probably one of the more notable non-players in NFL history. He made NFL Films an extremely successful company and in turn helped the NFL's popularity grow, especially shortly after the merger with the AFL. NFL Films is known for its great work and always amazing pieces of video/audio.

Matthew Stafford's amazing mic'd up segment against the Cleveland Browns in 2009, for example, was brought to us by NFL Films. Sabol actually called the segment "the most dramatic player wiring ever," as we got to hear and see first-hand what happened when Stafford injured his shoulder and quickly came back in the game to throw the winning touchdown.

If not for Sabol, awesome things like that wouldn't exist. He has done a lot for the NFL and game of football, and I certainly wish him well as he recovers.
