Marshall Suggests Some NFLers Use Viagra To Gain An Edge On The Field
WSCR) ^ | November 28, 2012 12:45 PM

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 don’t 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. I’m fortunate enough to be blessed with size and some smarts to give me my edge. But some guys, they’ll do whatever they can to get an edge. I’ve heard of some crazy stories. I’ve heard (of) guys using like Viagra, seriously. Because the blood is supposedly thin, some crazy stuff. So, you know, it’s kind of scary with some of these chemicals that are in some of these things so you have to be careful.”

I dunno - if I were an NFL center, I’d be rather nervous if I knew the quarterback had been popping Viagra.

They’d gain an edge off the field, too.

Your comment made me chuckle. My thought was ‘Isn’t it difficult to ride a bike without putting up the kickstand first?’

Stiff front line. No wonder there are so many “offensive holding” calls

I hope that a “hard” hit doesn’t refer to this.

For an erection lasting longer than four quarters see your doctor.

Don’t know about you Mr. Marshall but, I find it very difficult to run or even walk quickly when in the turgid state.

Maybe your quote “I’m fortunate enough to be blessed with size” doesn’t cover what you might have intended?

It’s Twoo! It’s Twoo!

So now for it to be a catch, do all three legs have to be in-bounds?

Viagra was originally created to open blood vessels in people with circulation problems. Racing teams have been doping horses with the stuff.

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.

Nothing like a little Viagra to help with forward passes, both off and on the field.

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!”

Stiff front line. No wonder there are so many “offensive holding” calls

"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 can’t lick it by being soft!"

Think about the applications for receivers and running backs. They can now "stiff arm" an approaching would-be tackler while still keeping both hands/arms wrapped securely around the ball. Should reduce fumbles and stripped balls...

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.

Your understanding is correct in that the penis is disproportionally affected, but it does affect other areas and those effects could be positive for athletes.

Google it.

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.
