The NFL and me

A different perspective on the game

There’s a man named Greg Cosell who works for NFL Films and might watch more tape of football games and football players than all but a handful of people in the country. A couple of times this past season, I called Greg to get his thoughts on things pertaining to the Patriots, and he always obliged me.

I called him in January, at the start of the playoffs, and before we hung up, we promised to meet in person at the Super Bowl, to put faces to voices and chat a bit more about the game.
