Here what Joe Flacco had to say about performance-enhancing drugs.

After the suspension of cornerback Asa Jackson, along with the MLB performance enhancing drug problem reemerging, everyone is focused on the use of performance-enhancing drugs in all sports.

Ravens' quarterback Joe Flacco had a few things to say about PED's.

"I am definitely one of the guys... test me and the guys as many ways as you can to make sure that there is nobody in the league that's on anything. The last thing that I want to be doing is having my guys, that I'm pretty sure are natural, going against guys that aren't."

Flacco obviously has a strong stance on PED's, and does not like players using them at all.

"The biggest thing for us as players is you don't want your guys to be put in situations where they feel like they have to do that to overcome guys that are doing that. It's bad for all sports, and sports as a whole. You want to go out there and you want to play on a level playing field and you want the best to be the best. You don't want that stuff to have any part in that."

Joe Flacco also believes that it is affecting the way that kids look at steroids, making them believe that it may be alright to do them.

John Harbaugh is also upset about performance-enhancing drugs, but mostly about the two-year cornerback Asa Jackson being suspended.

"You've got to follow the rules. You don't follow the rules, you get suspended. That's a fair rule. There's really no place for that. He's getting what he deserves."

Asa Jackson was suspended four games last season for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy, and he will now be suspended for eight games this season, after violating it for the second time.

Overall, it is obvious that many players, coaches, other staff, etc. in the NFL want PED's to stop. There is no need for them, since it is not fair to anyone, not even the player that is using them. Hopefully cheating will stop in sports, and we can finally have a much cleaner America.
