I didn't want to hijack the feel-good JJ Watt thread because doing good things for others and being a PED abuser are two things that are not mutually exclusive from one another. But if there is one player in the NFL who is not just using, but ABUSING PED's it has to be Watt. I know it's a shame we have to question successful players, but this guy isn't just successful, his body has turned into a charicature much like Barry Bonds did. I suspect a few years from now he will get busted and then everybody will say it should have been obvious, he was overgrown, his ability seemed to grow ten-fold overnight from a base 3-4 DE to a cross between Reggie White and Bruce Smith, the defense he was on was lead by a guy who was also suspended for PED's, he seems to crave attention like a lot of the famous abusers....etc. This thread is about dead so I will leave it here, but every time I see that guy I think something unnatural is going on there.
I remember watching Watt on youtube before the draft and liked what I saw. But in no way did I expect him to become the best defensive player in the NFL, let alone in his second season.
I found his comment about Mario Williams signing with the Bills to be a tad strange. He said (and I'm paraphrasing of course) that they would miss him in the locker room, but not so much on the field. There was no real reason to say something like this, and imo this too points to steroid use. Roid freaks do not tend to use great judgement. If they did, they would find hot, young women instead of old hags like Madonna (Canseco, A-Rod, and probably Sean Penn LOL).
I haven't cared about baseball for many years, but do you remember a Yankee, Randy Velarde? He was a pinch runner, and a late inning defensive replacement. An all around utility player. Then, he came in jacked. I saw him hit a home run over the centerfield wall at Yankee Stadium.
So yes, sometimes it really is obvious.
