Steve Johnson tries to get right with God

Steve Johnson

After dropping what would have been the game-winning touchdown pass in overtime against the Steelers, Bills receiver Steve Johnson took to Twitter.

Within a half hour after the game ended on a Shaun Suisham field goal, the man who caught three touchdown passes in Week 11 but who dropped five balls (including the aforementioned game-winner) in Week 12 filed a formal complaint with God and Company.

“I praise you 24/7!!!!!! And this how you do me!!!!!” Johnson said. “You expect me to learn from this??? How???!!! I’ll never forget this!! Ever!!!” (His message actually was in all caps, but since that’s the equivalent of screaming in someone’s eyeballs, we incorporated lower-case letters.)

Earlier today, after his message to the Most High landed in places like MSNBC’s Morning Joe,, and The View, Johnson tried to backtrack.

No I Did Not Blame God People!” Johnson said. “Seriously??!? CMon! I Simply Cried Out And Asked Why? Jus Like yal did wen sumthin went wrong n ur life!”

We’ll leave it to the folks in the crowd with common sense to assess Johnson’s words, and his meaning.

The possible lesson? Prayer is best left between the person sending it, and the entity receiving it.
