Viagra is a performance-enhancing drug.
But will it help players gain an edge on the football field?
Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall seems to think so.
When asked about Adderall, which is being blamed for a rising number of PED suspensions in the NFL, Marshall had an interesting response.
I dont know too much about Adderall, Marshall said during his weekly press conference. I know guys, it is such a competitive league, guys try anything just to get that edge. Im fortunate enough to be blessed with size and some smarts to give me my edge. But some guys, theyll do whatever they can to get an edge. Ive heard of some crazy stories. Ive heard (of) guys using like Viagra, seriously. Because the blood is supposedly thin, some crazy stuff. So, you know, its kind of scary with some of these chemicals that are in some of these things so you have to be careful.

NFL players are having sex on the field now?
While I love a post with this much humor potential, you are spot on.
Viagra doesn't know where the penis is located. All bood vessels are opened up and that should greatly improve stamina. If you don't have a source of arousal, you won't necessarily have an erection.
Viagra and the like aren't like light switches, they are more like driving a BMW rather than a beat up Dodge.
I wonder if I could get funds for a study. Hmmm.....
I had heard that they were giving viagra to the old folks in the nursing home when they turn in at night to keep them from rolling out of bed.
The first time a player did it he was heard to say, “Stand back fellows I don’t know how big this things going to get!”
"Our main thrust is to prick holes in the stiff front erected by the defensive line. We must keep mounting an offensive to penetrate any crack in their defenses so we can to lay to rest his dominant position. We want them hung and we want fast action. Let's get on them. Let's ram through a stiff front so it will be hard for them to get it up. We've got to come together so we can whip this team into submission. It'll be hard on us, but we cant lick it by being soft!"
Ok, I feel like I need to go wash my hands.
In the old days of the NFL, all it took was a stiff upper lip.
Is that true? My understanding was that Viagra and similar drugs disabled the enzyme system involved with nitric oxide dilation of blood vessels, and that the nitric oxide system was disproportionately represented in the blood vessels of the penis, rather than uniformly distributed all over the body.
It's a good thing other areas are less affected I would think. It would be hard to throw a ball if you couldn't bend your arm, LOL. For the record, I'm neither a doctor, athlete, or Viagra user.
You’ve heard of giving guys the stiff arm? Well. . . .
