Steve Johnson blames God for his overtime drop

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson dropped an easy, game-winning touchdown pass against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. If you haven't seen the clip, we embedded it earlier on Shutdown Corner.

After the game, Johnson placed the blame for the flub not on himself nor the pass nor the lights nor the defender nor the pressure of the situation. Nope; he blamed it on the big guy upstairs:

Players always thank God after a victory, so it's sort of refreshing to see one blame Him after a loss.

Finally, an athlete proves George Carlin wrong.

“Can’t we silence these Christian athletes who thank Jesus whenever they win and never mention his name when they lose? You never hear them say, “Jesus made me drop the ball” or, “The Lord tripped me up behind the line of scrimmage.””

Well, they do now.

Lol, reminds me of Boethius dressing down by philosophy when he complained about fortune. Fortune is fickle, he was reminded, so praise her or hate her equally regardless of what happens.

The problem he had was not praising God even though he failed. Sometimes it isn’t a lesson, it’s physics, and I praise God for the laws of physics.

It's a shame George didn't live to witness this day.

Heck, Johnson didn’t just drop a game winner, he dropped the ball FIVE TIMES during the game.

Einstein said “God doesn’t play dice”, maybe he doesn’t play football either

Yep. Beat me.

Reminds me of a joke:

When he got to heaven, God was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a faded Colts flag in the window. "This house is yours for eternity, Peyton," said God. "This is very special; not everyone gets a house up here." Peyton felt special, indeed, and walked up to his house. On his way up to the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a 3-story mansion with a black and gold sidewalk, a 50-ft tall flag pole with an enormous Steeler flag, and in every window, a Terrible Towel.

Peyton looked at God and said, "God, I'm not trying to be ungrateful, but I have a question. I was an all-pro quaterback, I hold many NFL records and I even went to the Hall of Fame."

God said, "So what's your point, Peyton?"

"Well, why does Ben Roethlisberger get a better house than me?"

God chuckled and said, "Peyton, that's not Ben's house, it's mine"
