    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Walking tall out of a House of Representatives hearing on the scourge of steroids in professional sports, former Steelers offensive lineman Steve Courson on Wednesday reiterated claims dating back to the early 1990s that the Pittsburgh dynasty was fueled by drugs and that both coach Chuck Noll and founder Art Rooney tolerated the free use of "juice" to hike performance.
    Courson's memories echo recent disclosures by New Orleans Saints coach Jim Haslett, an Avalon native, that a large number of NFL linemen took steroids during the 1980s, a trend he said began with the 1970s Steelers. Haslett, who played linebacker in the NFL from 1979-86, was the Steelers' defensive coordinator from 1997-99.

    PITTSBURGH -- New Orleans Saints coach Jim Haslett says he used steroids when he starred as a linebacker in the early 1980s, and claims the Pittsburgh Steelers' use of the drugs during Super Bowl championship seasons in the 1970s brought steroids into vogue around the NFL

    Then there's Hall of Fame center Mike Webster — dead of heart failure at 50 — who compensated for a lack of natural size by adding artificial size. The brother of linebacker Steve Furness — 49 when his heart gave out — also suspected that steroids played a role in the death. Even a running back like Rocky Bleier admitted to ESPN that steroids were part of his offseason training regimen.

    I guess Tark isn't a crazy, senile old man after all.

    The info has been out there for some time. I guess it's easier to dismiss an opinion if that person is considered old.

    It seems that the media is seeking out his opinion, not the other way around.

    Tarkenton should just shut the hell up...what does he think he's going to achieve with this? The Steelers had one of the best defenses in history, and pretty much kicked his ass that day.

    1. A lot of players were "juicing it up" in the 70's & early 80's, but none so much as the Steelers. As Hasslett stated, "...the Pittsburgh Steelers' use of the drugs during Super Bowl championship seasons in the 1970s brought steroids into vogue around the NFL".

    2. I can't honestly say one way or another if back then it was against league policy to do so.

    3. Knowing the kind of coach Grant was, I would find it highly improbable that he would allow his players to "juice it up"
