ESPN Analyst Recommends NFL Players Take Viagra Before Cold Games

ESPN analyst Bart Scott drew a lot of attention Thursday when he suggested NFL players in cold climates might want to take Viagra before games.

Temperatures during Saturday’s playoff game between the Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots are forecast to hit 7 degrees below zero, Mediaite predicts. That could pose a problem for Bills quarterback Josh Allen, as his cold-weather stats aren’t exactly hot, according to NBC Sports.

Scott, a former NFL linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets, suggested on Sports Network that taking the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra before the game could help Allen.

“This will improve circulation,” Scott said.

Apparently, he was serious and did not try to cause trouble to his fellow analysts.

“Viagra was originally a cure for the heart, right?” Scott continued. “So it enhances blood circulation, which brings circulation to the legs.”

He added, “I swear I’m not trying to be funny.”

Scott’s idea may not be as outlandish as it sounds. 2006 Harvard Medical School study found that Viagra can help treat cold hands and feet in people suffering from Raynaud’s syndrome, reports NESN.com.

A spokesman for Viatris, the current manufacturer of Viagra, warns against taking the pill for any purpose other than that for which it was intended.

“Viagra or Revatio, both of which contain sildenafil as the active ingredient, should only be used for approved indications and always under medical supervision,” a HuffPost spokesperson said.

Viagra’s label, approved by the Food and Drug Administration, states that the drug is for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Doctors are free to prescribe it for any reason.
