In our ceaseless chase to bring you the best NFL game preview content anywhere, Audibles is happy to talk with Greg Cosell of NFL Films, and the executive producer of ESPN’s NFL Matchup, about football as much as possible. There are few people more qualified to do so — Greg has been with NFL Films since 1979, and he and Steve Sabol invented advanced football analysis on television with the “Matchup” concept, which premiered in 1984. The most important part of his job is the insight he grabs from watching as much or more coach’s tape than anyone not actually working for an NFL team.

With his father, Ed, the younger Sabol wove an irresistible web of film, music and narration to establish the narrative and mythology of a game that was made for television but didn’t really know it until the Sabols started their work.
