Well, to the NFL's credit, they started steroid testing a lot earlier than the MLB did. I think the illusion of control that the NFL has gives them the upper hand on the steroid situation. The MLB was under public and media scrutiny for years before they decided to implement a strict steroid testing policy.
Now, I'm not saying there aren't holes in the NFL's policy or that it is an effective policy at all, but I think the fact that they had a testing policy in place before the big hubub over steroids in MLB has kept them from receiving the kind of backlash the MLB has.
That and it's the NFL. It's a much more popular sport than baseball and people are less likely to criticize and more likely to overlook issues like this.
