    I'm surprised no one has reacted to this. Redskins tackle Jon Jansen, a current player, says as many as 1 in 5 players in the NFL are on HGH and no one bats an eye. A day later he backs off. On the other hand the NFL says they have the best testing system in professional sports, but also admit that they can't do more until technology catches up. So what gives? Is this confirmation of what we all knew and assumed?

    1 in 5? That's it?

    Is that 1 in 5 per team?

    It's the old double standard. The NFL gets a free pass, baseball gets piled on. Steroids and performance enhancers are used in the NFL, as they are in baseball. That said, 1 in 5?
