Bears’ Brandon Marshall says some NFL players use Viagra … ON THE FIELD
By Jay Busbee | Shutdown Corner – 21 hours ago

Say you're an NFL player getting on in your career. You remember the days when you could plunge through the line 20, 30 times a game, post a dozen tackles, go all four quarters and overtime too. But now you don't have the zip you used to. Sometimes you're not even up for a game at all. It's OK. It happens to a lot of players.

But all hope is not lost. If you believe Chicago's Brandon Marshall, some players have found a way to keep that pep in their in-game step: a certain little blue pill.

During Wednesday's Bears media availability, Marshall was asked about Adderall, the stimulant now coming under the league's scrutiny. As Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune notes, he took the conversation in a whole new direction:

"I don't know too much about Adderall," he said. "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." (Emphasis added.)

[Also: 'Happily married' Hope Solo stands by Jerramy Stevens, who is back in jail]

Yeah, and we have to be careful what we say here as well. To start, though ... Viagra? Seriously? VIAGRA ON THE FIELD? We'll just make two points. In theory, it's possible to see how Viagra could get your blood all fired up, at least for tackling somebody. And in practice, it doesn't seem like it'd be very difficult to see who's using it, if you get our drift.

All joking aside, for a moment, Viagra's benefits aren't just limited to the bedroom; athletes have found that it assists in blood flow, which helps in getting oxygen around the body faster and aids in endurance. It's been used in cycling (at this point, what drug hasn't?) as riders try to gain every possible edge. Even so, expect Marshall, and pretty much every other NFL player who comes in front of a microphone in the next four days, to get asked about this a lot.

And, of course, if your two-minute drill lasts more than four hours, consult a doctor.

This gives a new meaning to the term "defenseless receiver".

That's still a lot better than what your tranny dad needs (viagra, blindfold, nose plugs and a 1/2 gallon of cheap booze) before he even thinks about touching Big Mama. :nonono:
