There are a lot of positive benefits of HGH and other performance enhancers when taken under proper medical supervision.

It's when players take them without proper guidance and supervision that they become dangerous.

When used properly, there are great benefits that can be attained from their use.

When I get older, I'll start taking some HGH....lots of positive benefits if you can afford it when you get older.

Per three sources, Nick Fairley skipped a scheduled dinner with Dolphins coach Tony Sparano and GM Jeff Ireland in Alabama.

Per a source, Sparano and Ireland called Fairley and waited for an hour and he never showed up.

Stewart Bradley - LB - Eagles

According to the NFL, the league is again changing its concussions policy due to the Eagles' handling of Stewart Bradley during a game last season after he was clearly concussed.

"Had that not happened, we may not have had the NFL sideline examination [for concussions]," said NFL official Richard Ellenbogen. Bradley was allowed back into the Eagles' season opener after suffering an early concussion, and staggered through a couple of snaps before being removed permanently. The sideline concussion exam has now been standardized in the NFL.

It amazes me that they let him go back in and stubble around before pulling him out for good talk about insubordination

Kaepernick top QB on 'several' draft boards?

According to Bill Huber of Packer Report, Colin Kaepernick's recent draft invite was sent by the league after "several teams" told the NFL he is the top rated quarterback on their boards.

Huber is insistent about this information, citing "someone who knows" and presumably handles invites to Radio City Music Hall. Profootballtalk.com has confirmed that at least one AFC West team (believed to be the Raiders, Chiefs, OR Broncos) definitely has Kaepernick rated as the draft's top quarterback. With ideal size, arm strength, athleticism, and intangibles, it probably shouldn't surprise anyone if Kaepernick is a first-round pick.

Projected first round pick is one thing. Projected top overall QB is completely another.

Browns QB McCoy hosting workouts in Texas






BEREA, Ohio (AP)—Cleveland Browns general manager Tom Heckert was pleased to hear that quarterback Colt McCoy(notes) and some of Cleveland’s wide receivers are getting together during the NFL lockout.
Heckert was asked Thursday about McCoy hosting some teammates for workouts in Austin, Texas. Heckert said at a press conference about next week’s draft that “it’s great” the players are fine tuning their skills during the league’s labor dispute.

Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi(notes) wrote on his Twitter page that he’d be in Austin with McCoy and teammates Josh Cribbs, Carlton Mitchell(notes), Jordan Norwood(notes) and “the rest of my Browns brothers!”
Players are not permitted to work out at team facilities during the lockout, which began on March 11.



Not that I care about the Browns but it kinda bothers me that we are not seeing anything like this from the Bronco's. Or if they are I missed it. It's up to Orton to organize and who knows if he cares enough anymore with his situation somewhat up in the air. Tebow doing it would be stepping on toes.

To be fair, the last time I checked, that's not exactly the type of update you'd typically see on King Neckbeard's twitter site even if it was in fact happening.

I can't find the link but Tebow and a bunch of the young receivers are working out together. The union has asked the players it doesn't represent anymore to continue to work and stay in football shape in case they win their case and there is an injunction against the lockout.

Zbikowski moves his boxing record to 4-0

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...record-to-4-0/

Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski, who unlike Pats receiver Wes Welker isn’t happily sitting on his ass during the lockout, spent Saturday night putting a boxer named Blake Warner on his ass in a one-round TKO, according to Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun.

The referee stopped the fight held in the pugilistic mecca of Thackerville, Oklahoma at 2:20 of the opening three-minute interlude, after Zbikowski sent Warner to the moon with a right uppercut.

Zbikowski’s win moved his record to 4-0. He has won three of those fights since the 2010 football season ended.

The former Notre Dame standout is scheduled to fight on May 21 in Cabazon, California. He’ll then enter the ring again on June 4 at Staples Center.

With the NFL's recent crackdown on concussions, is boxing really the side job you want to be engaging in in your spare time?

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...n-hgh-testing/

When it comes to testing players for human growth hormone, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says there’s no room for debate: HGH tests have to be part of the next Collective Bargaining Agreement.

“The integrity of the NFL is critical,” Goodell said, per Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun. “We have to make sure that we’re doing everything possible to have the best drug program in sports. Making changes to our program is critical. We have done that over the years and we have to do more, including the inclusion of HGH testing.”

Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com previously reported that the league would insist on HGH testing, and Goodell’s latest comments confirm that the league believes it’s time to add HGH testing to the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

However, it remains to be seen how hard the players will fight such testing. Scientists still haven’t developed reliable urine testing for HGH, and the players say they’re opposed to any requirement that they have blood drawn to be tested for illicit substances.

In that respect, the players in the NFL differ from the players in the Canadian Football League. As Albert Breer of NFL Network reported, the CFL players have been fully supportive of that league’s performance-enhancing drug testing program, which includes blood testing for HGH.

For his part, Goodell says testing for HGH is the only way for the league to stay ahead of cheaters.

“We would be naďve to think that people aren’t going to cheat the system,” Goodell said. “But we have to have the best drug testing program to be able to offset it.”
Fine with me. I despise PED cheaters. PED's really cheapen the record books. Just look at MLB and you can see that.

That's all well and good. There's still a zero percent chance he's the first QB taken.....and maaaaaybe a 10% chance he even goes as early as the tail end of the first round.

Maybe the third QB taken? He has more upside than Mallet. Maybe early-2nd. I have to be honest, I'm kind of smitten with the guy.

McCarthy could take him out in 6 rounds. Or at least drink him under the table.

Ray Lewis helps La'Shaun Armstrong
Associated Press

NEW YORK -- NFL linebacker Ray Lewis and former cornerback Reggie Howard are helping a 10-year-old New York boy whose mother drowned herself and three children by driving a van into the Hudson River.
The surviving child, La'Shaun Armstrong, was to attend a Manhattan fundraiser of the United Athletes Foundation on Saturday night. Some of the proceeds will go to create a relief fund to provide him with mentoring, counseling and tutoring.


Lewis


Lewis, a Baltimore Ravens star, reached out to the child as soon as he heard about the April 12 tragedy. The boy escaped through a van window after the car plunged into the water in Newburgh, N.Y., and was rescued by a passing driver. La'Shaun's 25-year-old mother, Lashanda Armstrong, reportedly was distraught over an argument with her boyfriend.
La'Shaun said meeting Lewis earlier this week was "awesome," according to Howard.
The 35-year-old linebacker went bowling with La'Shaun, saying the boy needs mentoring from a father figure. His biological father, Todd Johnson, is in prison on a robbery conviction.
Lewis is vice chairman of the United Athletes Foundation, which was created in 2008 by a group of professional athletes aiming to improve the lives of other athletes and their communities.
The president of the nonprofit is Howard, who took La'Shaun shopping for a new suit earlier this week.
"I hopped into a cab in Manhattan to his house [in Middletown, N.Y.] -- and I had no idea it was more than 60 miles away!" Howard said as he prepared to host Saturday's event at Manhattan's Grand Hyatt hotel.
La'Shaun and his grandmother, Datrice Armstrong, who is raising him now, were the foundation's guests for the weekend, sleeping at the Grand Hyatt.
Besides a check presented to La'Shaun on Saturday -- for an undisclosed amount -- the foundation plans to help him well into the future, Howard said.

Lewis has a soft spot for people who escape being murdered by someone else, as it means there is still a chance he can murder them later.

Just because he was involved in a bad thing doesn't discount he did a good thing. How would you like to be judged by the worst thing you ever did for the rest of your life no matter what you did with the rest of your life?
