HGH Use In The NFL

31 May

Guest Writer: Robert McSain

Anyone who follows sports knows that so many people testing positive for human growth hormones have hit baseball hard. The sport has lost a lot of credibility, and it has taken them a while to clean up everything in general. While HGH is talked about a lot surrounding baseball, it is largely overlooked in football. However, there are plenty of signs that the usage runs rampant in the league.

The NFL has really grown into America’s past time, as people tune in every Sunday to watch their favorite teams and their favorite fantasy football players. That is just one reason why some people believe any HGH controversy is swept under the rug as quickly as possible. There have been reports from anonymous former players and people within the NFL that HGH use has been around for a while, and it is not really going away.

Back in 2013, there were reports from anonymous sources inside the NFL that as many as 10 to 15 players on each team used some type of performance enhancing drug. There have certainly been players who have tested positive for substance abuse, but those numbers would indicate that far too many are getting away with using HGH to their advantage.

The talk about drugs in the NFL seems to be surrounding marijuana at this point in time. Commissioner Roger Goodell seems to be close to approving a change in the rules, but he has been pretty quiet about HGH testing. The league and the NFL Players Association seem to be on different pages when it comes to HGH testing and punishments being handed out. It has been an ongoing issue going back all the way to 2011, and there is no answer in sight.

Until the NFL really cracks down on HGH, fans are generally going to overlook anyone who tests positive for essentially cheating. Baseball made it a huge issue, and now it is largely out of the game and those who test positive take a huge hit in credibility not to mention their paycheck.

Vick Hurt, Young to the Rescue

26 Nov

The Philadelphia Eagles seem to be strongly considering Vince Young as their starter. Well at least for this week. After suffering broken ribs, the Eagles original starting quarterback Michael Vick failed to practice this week.

Therefore, the man that proclaimed the Eagles a “Dream Team” may have another chance to keep the Eagles in the playoff hunt.

The West Virginia Mountaineers will take on the James Madison Dukes at FedEx Field September 15, 2012.

Fourth Overall Pick in NFL Draft Goes Down

20 Sep

In a great football game against the Houston Texans, the Washington Redskins are holding their breath. Rookie offensive tackle Trent Williams went down on a critical play in which he gave up a sack.

Losing the game isn’t as bad as losing their starting left tackle. Chris Russell of ESPN 980 reported that Williams injury is a sprained knee. He is expected to have a MRI Monday.

Arizona QB Shines

3 Sep

News of out the Arizona Cardinals camp recently has all been about speculation about QB Matt  Leinart. Yesterday against the Washington Redskins the star of the show was a Arizona QB, but it wasn’t Leinart. It was undrafted rookie QB from BYU Max Hall. Hall completed 7 of 9 passes for 126 yards and a 6 yard touchdown run.

The writing might be on the wall for Leinart. He didn’t start for the second week in a row.
