I saw flashes of the old Jolly in that game, and that made me smile. Hard not to pull for him, not only because of his story, but because of his remaining potential.

This is augmented by the fact that three years away from the game means he has more remaining tread on the tires than the normal player his age.

Jolly should make the team. He is far more instinctive than the majority of our Dlinemen .. even with being away from the game for three years.

The only thing causing any question about it right now is stamina. The guy still needs to work on his conditioning. That will come though .. he may be a limited snap count early, but he'd already showing that he can make an impact.

I remember back before he was suspended Jolly swatting balls down at the line of scrimmage like crazy. 2009 he had 10! He still has the instincts that is for sure. I really hope he makes the team.

with the way he's been playing through 2 preseason games, its hard to imagine he wont make the team. guys been a monster! now hopefully he'll start getting time against opposing teams first strings.

Jolly should be a lock to make the team. Jolly was flat out dominant last preseason game. showed all the reasons you keep him.

Here's an article about the Packers' performance against the Rams, and some nice stuff about just how good Jolly was in that game:

Quote:
Jolly Start to Preseason for Johnny

Returning to the NFL after he has turned 30, Johnny Jolly is wasting absolutely no time staking his claim for a spot on the Packersí final 53 man roster. In his two preseason games so far, Jolly has a +4.6 overall grade and he built on his solid start against the Cardinals last week with an even more impactful display on only 14 snaps against the Rams last night. Jolly crammed in three tackles, one of which was a stop, a hurry, a batted pass which led to an interception for Jarrett Bush and an interception of his own off of a deflection by Loyce Means. Thatís a lot of work to be fitting into only 14 snaps, 10 fewer than last week, and Packer fans should be eager to see if and how the defensive coaching staff can slot Jolly back into the defensive line rotation this season.

I trust every decision TT makes, but if he were to cut Jolly it would be a huge mistake.

If we cut him I'd say the odds are decent he comes back to bite us somewhere else.

I'd be shocked if Jolly isn't on the 53 when time comes.
I can imagine teams like the 9ers and hawks already calling dibs

Minnesota would sign him, can;t let that happen.

No way I want him to look like a bad Barney the dinosaur impersonator. If I had my say he'd end up with either the palmy's (preferrably) or the Eagles.

Most of the time, the Vikings would be a good bet but they're in need of NT types right now.

325-340 lb DT with hands? Fit's the bill from my perspective.

Could be.

I'm going to hate the DL cut(s).

I never thought he would be anywhere near as effective as he was against the Rams. I kinda thought this was a shot on a guy that is trying to get his life on track, just doing the right thing. But after that game, I'm not sure how he doesn't make the team.
