Johnny Jolly Continues To Make Wonderful Decisions

Johnny Jolly

You go Johnny!

The good news is this.

Suspended Green Bay Packers defensive end [intlink id=”205″ type=”category”]Johnny Jolly[/intlink] is working out.

The bad news is, he’s not any smarter than he used to be.

Jolly is working out in Houston with former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell. That’s right, arguably the biggest draft bust of all time.

Why is this so bad?

Well, for starters, Russell only became such a monumental bust because he had absolutely no work ethic. Russell, who was rumored to have shown up near 300 lbs. for offseason activities and training camp on more than one occasion, lasted all of three seasons in the NFL after being the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 draft.

Those wonderful habits are probably rubbing off on Jolly in some way.

So, there’s that.

Then there’s the minor detail that both players were arrested for possession of codeine in separate incidents, two years apart.

In case you’re not hip, codeine is used in a concoction invented in Houston called, among other things, purple drank, sizzurp or lean. It’s mixed with Sprite or Mountain Dew and Jolly Ranchers, and when people drink it, they lose their shit.

So here’s Jolly, awaiting trial for felony possession of codeine, trying to get reinstated by the NFL, hanging out with this clown. I’m not suggesting they’re concocting some elaborate scheme to distribute codeine, but would that really surprise anyone?

The NFL hasn’t made a decision on Jolly’s request for reinstatement and the judge presiding over his case has been monitoring Jolly’s behavior while he participates in a pretrial diversion program, with the hopes of having the felony counts dismissed.

Jolly may not be doing anything illegal, but when is that dumb bastard going to realize perception is often reality?

My guess is never.

    At this point I would prefer that the Pack give Justin Harrell another shot before allowing this a** clown back on the team! What a waste of talent…

    Even Jamal Reynolds was smarter.

    gotta git me some o’ day purple drank!!
    My prediction: Jolly will get reinstated and then fuck the his whole gig up again, ending his career. Maybe we should just find a way to shovel him over to the Queens while we still can.

    might not make the smartest decisions but he had a great year in 2009. i hope he comes back and dominates for us.

    Hmm….he is definitely not the sharpest tool in the shed, but god damn I loved him in 09. I would like to see him in the Green and Gold again.
