Green Bay Packers
players want anyone blaming Brandon Bostick
for Sunday's loss to BACK OFF ... telling TMZ Sports
the epic collapse wasn't just one guy's fault, but a total team disaster.
Bostick made the gaffe seen 'round the world in Seattle on Sunday -- muffing an onside kick and allowing the Seahawks to pull off one of the craziest comebacks in NFL playoff history.
Reaction to the miscue was swift and brutal on social media, with Bostick being the butt of jokes, the subject of memes, and even the target of death threats.
We spoke to several members of The Pack who tell TMZ Sports they have Bostick's back 100% and the the loss on Sunday -- while brutal -- was a total team effort.
"We're disappointed in how the game ended but to blame Bostick is purely ridiculous, it's a team game and we win or lose as a team."
Another player told us, "I know that there are NO hard feelings against him for what happened in the game. You definitely feel for him – I felt for him."
The player added, "We've all been there."
