Kyle Williams’ fumble that set up the New York Giants game-winning field goal was a tough ending to the San Francisco 49ers’ miracle season.If you think a game is decided on one play, then Williams should probably be receiving most of the blame.
A few die hard 49ers fans certainly felt this way last night and took to Twitter to express their heavy displeasure with the wide receiver’s game-altering mistake (via CBS Sports).
A sampling of the hate and overreaction (sic):
Williams’ 49ers teammates, though, are supporting him, knowing that he’s going through a very difficult time right now.
“We all lost this game,” tight end Delanie Walker said, via CBSSports.com’s Gregg Doyel. “We play as a team — it’s 45 of us out there. It’s not Kyle’s fault, so don’t go over there and act like it is. Cause it’s not.”
“Everybody in here has covered my back and kind of patted me on the back and said, ‘It’s not all on your shoulders,'” Williams said.
A quick Twitter search of “@KyleWiliams_10” will show that many are actually supporting Williams, significantly outnumbering the threatening tweets. For his part, Williams has remained silent on Twitter.
