So, after the Buffalo Bills lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime, wide receiver Steve Johnson tweeted that he blamed God for the game-winning dropped pass; or, so we thought. In Sundayâ€™s game, Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a perfect touchdown passl to wide receiver Steve Johnson. Unfortunately, Johnson forgot to catch it. The Steelers, then, marched down the field to score the game-winning field goal. Shortly after the game, Steve Johnson tweeted who he thought was to blame, â€œI PRAISE YOU 24/7!!!!!! AND THIS HOW YOU DO ME!!!!! YOU EXPECT ME TO LEARN FROM THIS??? HOW???!!! ILL NEVER FORGET THIS!! EVER!!! THX THOâ€¦â€
Many people insinuated that this tweet was putting blame on God for the dropped pass and rightly so. Who else does one â€œpraise 24/7â€ and receive life lessons from? However, the wide receiver did not see it that way. Monday night, Steve Johnson, who dropped the game-winning pass in overtime, tweeted,â€ And No I Did Not Blame God People! Seriously??!? CMon! I Simply Cried Out And Asked Why? Jus Like yal did wen sumthin went wrong n ur life!â€
Is he now â€œblamingâ€ the public for taking his original God-blaming tweet out of context? Although they have no problem taking credit for anything positive that happens to them, It seems as though many of these current players are good with blaming other people, or, in this case, higher entities, for their personal mistakes..
Itâ€™s clear that Buffalo Bills receiver Steve Johnson couldâ€™ve avoided all this heat by just catching the game-winning touchdown pass. In his defense, he did leave the original â€œambiguousâ€ tweet up , not backing down from what he â€œwroteâ€. He did, though, have to â€œclarifyâ€ his original sentiment behind it. Due to his unorthodox views on how to perceive a tweet that infers to blame God for dropping a game-winning pass, itâ€™s safe to say that any future comments, tweets, quotes, that Mr. Johnson makes must be taken lightly, until further explanation.
Here’s the play in question:
