Stevie Johnson Mocks Plaxico Burress by Pretending to Shoot Himself (Picture)
Just before the two minute warning in the first half of their game with the Jets, Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson scored on a short five-yard slant. It was particularly impressive since he was covered by Jets’ star cornerback Darrelle Revis. After the score, Johnson decided to celebrate with a little dance and pretended his hands were guns. Then, he pretended to shoot himself in the thigh — a shameless mocking of Plaxico Burress’ self-inflicted gunshot wound. You can see a video of the play over at NFL.com, but here is a screenshot from the celebration:
Getting creative with touchdown celebrations like this one earlier in the season, but Johnson took it a little too far on Sunday. It would be tough for the NFL to fine Johnson for something like that given all the celebrations we’ve seen over the years, but I’ve seen Roger Goodell issue fines for much less.
