A Twit Tweets On Twitter

I watched the Buffalo v Pittsburgh game last night. It was truly an exciting game and I was pulling for the Bills to win. I saw Steve Johnson drop that beautiful pass in the end zone and figured, "That's it." And it was.

I then watched Mr. Johnson at the post game interview and thought he handled it pretty well, accepting fault for a perfectly thrown ball that should have been caught.

Now this.

Steve Johnson, Buffalo Bills wideout, blames God on Twitter after dropping game-winning pass

It wasn't his own hands or the Pittsburgh secondary Sunday that foiled Buffalo Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson from hauling in what should have been the game-winning TD catch in the end zone.

It was God.

"I PRAISE YOU 24/7!!!!!!" the 24-year-old tweeted from his iPad at around 5:15 Sunday after the Steelers' 19-16 overtime victory. "AND THIS HOW YOU DO ME!!!!! YOU EXPECT ME TO LEARN FROM THIS??? HOW???!!! ILL NEVER FORGET THIS!! EVER!!! THX THO..."

Johnson had a perfect pass in his hands that would have given his team an overtime victory over the heavily favored Steelers.

Instead of walking off the field the hero, however, he dropped it.

I believe the Creator and Master of the Universe doesn't need a tweet to understand the immaturity of some people. God demands obedience over sacrifice or praise (1 Sam 15:22).
So relax Steve, God does indeed expect you to learn from this. It may just take some time for the lesson to sink in...

In this case, a very long time.

Kid - it is a shame that he made this so public. It will only come back to haunt him.

Subvet - some things, like cheese, just get better as they age. I hope for Steve Johnson's sake that this is true for him.

I must disagree, Sig. It clearly WAS God's fault. The Big Guy's had it out for the Bills for a long time.

Mebbe they should change their name to the Buffalo Jobs - eh Nickie?
