Steve Johnson Questions God - Yes, God - After Dropping Game-Winning TD

Steve Johnson dropped a pass in the end zone in overtime on Sunday that would have given the woeful Buffalo Bills a shocking victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Instead of taking the blame for the eventual loss, Johnson passed the buck in a manner that makes Donovan McNabb look like an amateur at blaming others for his own shortcomings.

Johnson didn’t merely throw his teammates under the bus. No, he put the loss on God. That’s right, he blamed the Lord for his choke. He went on Twitter, and asked God why He allowed this to happen. Even The Colbert Report took note:

Shockingly, either no one has advised him that he may want to take down the tweet or he has ignored the advice. As of late this morning, the tweet was still visible:

I PRAISE YOU 24/7!!!!!! AND THIS HOW YOU DO ME!!!!! YOU EXPECT ME TO LEARN FROM THIS??? HOW???!!! ILL NEVER FORGET THIS!! EVER!!! THX THO...

“THX THO?” What was that supposed to accomplish? He rips God, and then tries to make nice?

He has since tweeted several times, including:

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!

Ok, but most of us aren’t tweeting it.
