Kyle Williams Takes Blame for San Francisco Defeat, Faces Death Threats

by at . Comments

The 49ers fell to the Giants yesterday in the NFC Championship Game and - like Billy Cundiff on the Ravens - most of the blame lies at the feet of one player: Kyle Williams, who turned the ball over TWICE on punt returns, including one fumble that led to an easy New York field goal in overtime.

Williams has taken responsibility for the mishaps, but that isn't enough for some crazed fans.

Many have taken to Twitter and issued death threat against the little-used wide receiver, who was only pressed in to duty due to an injury.

"It certainly makes you question our culture of sports as it stands," said Kyle's dad, Chicago White Sox General Manager Kenny Williams, while kicker David Akers also stood up for his teammate:

"I'm irritated with the way people are treating him, absolutely. I think it's ridiculous. You know, get a grip on what life's about. He went out and he put his soul out there. That's what he does. He was not trying to do anything other than make an incredible play for this team."

We agree. And fans ought to be thanking Williams for helping to set up a Giants/Patriots Super Bowl. It's gonna be epic!


I know that people hate hearing theres always next year, but come on this is the play-offs, they should have talk to williams about the first one, and explain to him how important this game is.COME ON MAN, this is going to be a boring super bowl this year, don't really care about who wins or loses.I think alot of us here in san fran will watch it but wont be the same with out are beloved 49ers in it. So come on theres always next year, man i hate hearing that shit.


I think williams had a giants jersey under his team one...Bye bye Williams you wont be playing for the Niners No more.


I take my football seriously, but can't imagine threatening anyones life. You halfway wonder if someone paid him off like the Ravens kicker.


We spent more time watching punters grab their own bums in the SF~NY game than watching any other plays. If the kicker had made the kick and went into OT for the Ravens, it might still have gone to the patriots. I was hoping the Ravens would win. My Giants are going. All four teams fought the good fight until the bitter end. But I have already seen the Patriots and Giants in the SB. I was hoping for a new show. I did bet on the Patriots before the game, but was rooting for the Ravens to tie. I only ever bet one perfectly sharpened pencil. I have a lot of pencils owed to me. For the Super Bowl, I am betting a pencil and a pink eraser.
