The New York Times reported on Saturday that the World Anti-Doping Agency is financing research to determine whether every guy's favorite performance-enhancing drug can actually give athletes a competitive boost. Officials are concerned Viagra may provide an unfair advantage on the playing field by dilating blood vessels and unduly increasing oxygen-carrying capacity throughout the body (not just in the junk).

Coincidentally, the weekend's gridiron action exposed some hopelessly flaccid teams that could use some perking up. For the NFL's Browns and Eagles and college football's Michigan and Notre Dame, the talent is there, but for some reason, these squads don't seem to be getting the type of stout defense and potent offense needed to satisfy Lady Victory. So before the powers that be put the kibosh on the little blue pill, we submit to you these wilting football teams as potential charities to receive a massive shipment from Pfizer (we've got the breakdown after the jump).

Let us know which team you think needs Viagra the most in our poll, and check out some other sports stories on our radar below.

--Michigan Wolverines: The winningest program in college football history just finished their worst season in school history going 3-8 and losing their fifth straight to rival Ohio State.

--Cleveland Browns: Last season's 10-6 playoff team looked to be getting back on track with Brady Quinn at the helm. Alas, Quinn only had 94 yards passing before getting benched on Sunday, as the Browns endured a 16-6 loss at the hands of a lousy Houston Texans team.

--Notre Dame Fighting Irish: Charlie Weis was supposed to bring the Irish back to national prominence. Instead, Notre Dame went and lost to Syracuse, a team that recently fired their coach, having only won two games prior to Saturday.

--Philadelphia Eagles: Star QB Donovan McNabb used to grace the covers of video games. Now, he's a turnover machine gracing the sidelines. His replacement, Kevin Kolb, also likes completing passes to the wrong team, offering up an errant pass to Ravens safety Ed Reed, who returned the interception for a record 108 yards. The Ravens went on to win 36-7.
