Has anyone investigated Zach Wilson and Adderall?


Recommended Posts

I came across the video on YouTube about how Chris Davis (baseball player) career flamed out once MLB forced him off Adderall. 
 

It’s well documented that Zach took medication for ADHD (although nobody knows what he took). We do know that Adderall is a banned substance in the NFL. Could it be possible he was forced to change his medication (or stop medicating) once he became a pro? 

Watch the Davis video

There's something called the TUE therapeutic use exception and Zach got one 

What's funny is that the last time this was discussed (pre draft) the mods locked the thread 

Why? Out of respect for Zachs privacy? Because it seemed like a personal attack on Zach? Who knows

Dudes broken mentally from all the people kicking him in his taint box. That and there wasn't an offensive coordinator you know, developing him. Hopefully with a coach that develops QBs, and some time to get his brain focused, he can get his skills working again. Watching him hide smirks when he completed passes was tough to see.

 Apart from his  size/build/injury history at draft time I thought the Adderall issue with Wilson might be significant. If you've ever experienced Adderall it's a powerful...influence.

A doc once prescribed me some because he though I might have some undiagnosed ADHD.  Took one dose and I thought my heart was going to pound out of my chest.  Never again.

But, I couldn't find one so here, enjoy this gif of a mother, Marge speaking to that gorilla on Bartholomews behalf. P.S. You muddaf...!)

His ability to learn, to not be dismissive about learning from others...it's a question mark.

He's the entitled nephew of a billionaire and acts like it at every opportunity 

The "I'm going to make the next qbs life hell" is further evidence. He also gets a pass on his dickish behavior.

Any other player saying that would be regarded as a bad or toxic teammate

Not sure if I locked it or not, but not sure it's about a personal attack as much as peoples medical information tends to be a more private matter. Plus someone will inevitably try to spin it into politics. So when this gets locked more likely the reason why.

A few off-platform throws created more psychos here than Tim Tebow.

That is not true. The influx of hillbillies who didn't watch a down of football prior, when Tebow came here was insane. It was a cult of people like "hee haw, I love me dem dare Jets now cuz messiah tebow is wid tem now ya here?"

Westhoff in visits to Jets training camp offered to share some of his observations of Brees and Marino with Zach Wilson, but Wilson had no interest in listening to Westhoff.

I do not doubt that Zach Wilson trains/works hard behind the scenes as a football player but his ability to learn, to not be dismissive about learning from others...it's a question mark.

Not poor Zach's fault.

Blame the ADD?

Yeah but that ended in less than a year.  The Zach Wilson era has been going on for nearly 3 years, ever since the Jets won that game over the Rams in 2020.
