Stevie Johnson received the attention he was looking for when he mocked Plaxico Burress’ nightclub shooting incident during a touchdown celebration Sunday. Unfortunately for the Bills wide receiver, the joke ended up being on him. Johnson drew a 15-yard penalty for excessive celebration, an outcome that angered Bills coach Chan Gailey and left the receiver believing he cost his team the game.
“I was just having fun, and part of having fun ended up being a penalty and a touchdown for the Jets,” Johnson said after the Bills lost, 28-24. “It was a stupid decision by myself.”
Burress, who spent nearly two years in prison for the event Johnson mimicked, more or less took the high ground when asked about the TD celebration. Still, the Jets receiver couldn’t help but get in a dig on Johnson, who had two crucial misses on Buffalo’s final possession.
“I’ve seen worse, and I’ve heard worse,” Burress said. “So, it doesn’t bother me at all. The result I’m looking at is we won the football game … and he turned around and dropped three wide-open balls to lose it for his team.”
