also, I'm not entirely sure that the popularity of football actually lies in Ed Reed trying to decapitate whoever happens to be holding the ball. That kind of hitting is a relatively recent addition to the game (you had guys like Jack Tatum, but most safeties didn't hit like that), yet football has been at least the second most popular team sport in the US since the early 1900's. Contrary to popular belief, the NFL was already surpassing MLB long before 1994, too.
