Brandon Marshall Spills the Beans on Viagra in the NFL

When you are young, one of the best athletes in the world, and could conceivably burn money for warmth and still be stinking rich there is one thing that you should not be lacking in like the confidence that is needed in order to “perform.”

Apparently there are many in the NFL that do lack the necessary confidence. According to Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall there is a certain drug that a lot of guys take in order to perform better – Viagra.

A lot of guys suffer from erectile dysfunction and take Viagra. That isn’t exactly news. However, when Marshall alluded to guys taking the little blue pill as a performance enhancer he was not talking about sex. He was talking about playing football.

That’s right. If he is telling us the truth, there are guys playing football on Sundays with raging erections from taking Viagra:

“…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…”

Theoretically, Viagra could be used as a PED. The little blue pills are supposed to benefit a person by improving blood flow and endurance by pumping oxygen through the blood. So when a player wants to make sure he can go hard (during the entire game) he takes the little blue pill.

Most of you are probably wondering how these guys can keep their focus on the game while they are running around with an erection. As it turns out that is not an issue. Viagra users still have to be sexually aroused in order to get an erection.

So I guess if you aren’t playing the right game you aren’t going to be going hard after all.

The NFL is already dealing with one unusual performance enhancing drug issue. Three more players were recently added to the growing group that has been suspended for supposedly testing positive for Adderall.

Taking Adderall makes a little more sense than Viagra. The drug is made to combat ADHD, attention deficit- hyperactivity disorder. Basically, what it is does is settle you down and help you focus.

Yea, I can see where that could work on a football field.

Viagra, though—I’m not seeing it. There has to be something else that can help with your endurance than something that can give you an erection.

What are you going to do if a strong breeze goes by as you glance over at the cheerleaders and something pops up? What if you are in the bottom of a big tackle and get a NARB (no apparent reason boner)? Do you really want to try and explain that one?

I think not.
