The Green Bay Packers are listed with 10/1 odds of winning the 2011 Super Bowl at betED.com.  That team suffered a serious setback on Friday however. 

The NFL suspended Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly without pay for the upcoming season and perhaps beyond for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Jolly is facing drug charges in Houston after his July 2008 arrest outside a club for possession of at least 200 grams of codeine. If convicted, Jolly faces up to 20 years in prison

"Johnny is a good player that loves everything about the game of football," Packers general manager Ted Thompson said in a statement. "We appreciate the contributions he has made to the Packers the past four seasons. His focus and priorities now lie elsewhere -- our thoughts are with him during this difficult personal time."

His suspension is seen as a bit of a road block for the Green Bay Packers to make a significant impact in the post season.

A defensive end in Dom Capers' 3-4 scheme, Jolly played a key role as the Packers allowed a league-low 83.3 yards rushing per game.  The second-round draft pick from Purdue, defensive lineman Mike Neal, is expected to take Jolly’s place.
