Steelers Vs. Bills: Steve Johnson Blames God For Dropping Catch

Bills receiver Steve Johnson wins the award for stupidest tweet of the year after dropping a potentially game-winning touchdown pass in the Bills’ overtime loss to the Steelers on Sunday. This is some pretty staggering hubris, actually.

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 THOless than a minute ago via Twitter for iPad

 

That’s just classic. Johnson doesn’t blame himself for his mistake – he blames God. Chris Chase at Yahoo! Sports does point out, though, that there’s a weird sort of consistency here: players give God credit for their successes all the time, so it makes sense, on some twisted level, that Johnson would also blame Him for his failure. One would hope that God, or whatever your idea of god is, couldn’t care less about the outcome of a football game, given the percentage of the world’s population that doesn’t have enough to eat. And I certainly hope He isn’t spiteful enough to still be dumping on the Bills after all those years. If God really did involve himself with football games, one would think he’d still be feeling bad about the whole Scott Norwood thing and let Johnson make that catch. Then again, maybe Johnson just choked.

The “THX THO…” at the end of Johnson’s tweet is the funniest thing about it, incidentally. It’s as if, after 130 characters of narcissism, he suddenly remembered he was supposed to be humble. One would think three years with the Bills would drill humility into even the thickest of skulls, but apparently not.

Here’s the video of the dropped catch.
