Johnny Law is hard to evade, just ask the Green Bay Packers’ own Johnny Jolly.
On Tuesday, Jolly was indicted on drug charges in Texas. On July 8, he was arrested for possession of at least 200 grams of codeine.
Anyone who has ever messed around with codeine knows that Jolly was in for one hell of a weekend.
But let’s get serious here for a second. Johnny Jolly has a problem, the warning signs have been prevalent, and we haven’t done anything to help the guy.
Remember when Jolly was an up-and-coming defensive tackle at Texas A&M with growing NFL aspirations?
He soon joined the Packers, where, although certain people had an idea of what was going on – the all-night binges, waking up in a dumpster, digging shallow graves for hookers outside of De Pere – nothing was done.
Soon, Jolly was showing up to team functions, like photo day, high.
And now this.
I think it’s time to own up and admit to the role we all played in the downward spiral Johnny Jolly is now in. Sure, we could have not pressured him to drink that entire bottle of Jack Daniels. We could have not cut that stripper’s throat after she told us that coke makes our balls look small. We could have not demanded he bring 200 grams of codeine back from Texas last July.
But we didn’t do any of that, and therefore, we are to blame.
Johnny in the Morning! That is his nickname UP NORT in Wisconsin, for his late late night party antics after 12 Midnight!
If Johnny is the Adam “Don’t Call Me Packman, unless we at da SCRIP club in da rain” Jones of the GBPack, then we “awite.”
Monty, don’t forget the QB you and I worshiped until you stopped last July, won his first MVP under the influence of a controlled substance.
Johnny is solid in the interior line and an asset. Hopefully the NFL doesn’t suspend him when we need him most and I hope he can clean up his act, much like this local celebrity I once knew in Oshkosh.
Carl with a “C” OUT!
