Coaches get tested by the NFL too? Why?
I thought it would be Wade Philips.
What was he using ... Cialis .
You know you is an i-d-i-o-t if you are a coach and get kicked for 'roids. That's like getting fired on your day off.
Maybe he's been hangin' out with his wacky step-brother.
The article just said "performance enhancing" drugs - that certainly counts
Now we get the "real" reason:
Four hours later..... I had blurred vision...
Nitro patch brought me back to normal.''
Too old to act that way.

"Echoing some of the comments he made to the Dallas Morning News, Wilson said that he discovered an alternative therapy after seeing an item on 60 Minutes regarding the use of controversial treatments to improve the quality of life in persons who were feeling the effects of age and/or illness. Wilson admitted that he knew that the use of such substances is "controversial" in the medical community, but he says that he had no idea that it is illegal.
He explained that, while he was researching the topic on the Internet, an ad popped up (um . . . we won't go there) for the Palm Beach Rejuvenation Center. The web site seemed legitimate, and he eventually found himself taking a physical and providing a blood sample in Chicago, and thereafter talking by phone to a doctor in Florida, whom Wilson assumed to be on the level.
Wilson took the physical in September 2006, and began using the substances he purchased in October 2006. He used a personal credit card in his own name to buy the substances, and had them delivered to his office in Halas Hall, the headquarters of the Chicago Bears.
He said that he stopped using the substances after a couple of months, because it was causing his blood-sugar levels to spin out of control.
Wilson's name thereafter surfaced as a purchaser of banned substances in the wake of a criminal investigation regarding the Palm Beach Rejuvenation Center and Signature Pharmacy in Orlando. And Wilson says that, once he landed on the NFL's radar, he was up front and he came clean."
Per article on profootball.com.
Having Diabetes can cause a lot of other problems with one's health. You can't fault a guy for trying different options to improve his "quality of life".
However he should have done more research on the options for "controversal remedies".
