Also, on NFL.com, Andrea Kremer’s written feature: http://www.nfl.com/jolly

On NFL GameDay Morning, Michael Irvin’s reaction to Jolly’s story:

“First of all I want to commend him for sharing. As a spiritual man, I am certainly into what we call these redeeming stories used to inspire others. Out of a man’s great pain can bring great promise. Jolly is experiencing great pain, of course, to his own doings, but by speaking and by talking about it, he will give hope to other people who are dealing with that issue and I want to commend him for coming out and doing that – speaking and talking about it and doing it.”

“And that’s what I love about the NFL too – football teaches you to get back up again. No matter how the play goes, you got to get back up again. And you always want to tell kids do the right thing all the way, but some kids may fall. You need guys like Jolly to say ‘I failed to, I got back up and so can you.’ That’s why these stories are important.”
