Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling fumbled the ball in overtime yesterday, to give the Colts the ball which ultimately cost them the game. Was it a big problem? Not really, I am sure it was not the way Valdes-Scantling planned, but the fans could not let it down.
According to MVS himself, the 26 year old wide receiver was sent death threats for the fumble.
He tweeted about the threats just hours after the game and wrote that his teammates have his back.
Death threats over a football game? Jesus you people need help. It’s actually sick. I’m good. My team got my back. ✊🏾

Marquez has played three years in Green Bay and has never fumbled up until this point. This is becoming a normal thing as of late. Just last week the Baltimore Ravens center Matt Skura received death threats as well from social media. Skura took responsibility for the bad snaps but said hold him responsible not his family. These so called tough guys behind a computer reportedly threatened his family as well.
This is the world we are living in now. Man…..
