NFL players rumored to be using Viagra to get an edge on the field

CHICAGO (AP) The idea that NFL players might use Viagra to gain an edge on the field left Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs practically in tears from laughing.

He wasn't the only one.

Players cracked jokes about it Thursday, a day after Bears star receiver Brandon Marshall said he had heard that some players were using Viagra and hoping it would give them an advantage during games. Punch lines aside, experts say it's unlikely the erectile-dysfunction drug would help.

"What would that do? That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard," Minnesota Vikings long snapper Cullen Loeffler said.

Bears defensive back D.J. Moore wondered if Marshall was kidding and said: "I've never heard of that."

7. well, at one time Coaches told players to

eschew any type of sexual relations the night before a game.

A researcher pointed out that the players who were already in a relationship actually performed better after a satisfactory night of sex. the problem was with players who unsuccessfully "wore themselves out" seeking sexual partners.

seems like common sense, to me.

9. It wasn't originally developed as an erection drug

It's method of operation has respiratory and cardiac effects as well.

It was originally being tested as a cardiac drug, and its commercial value was discovered as a side effect of its intended indication.
