Originally written January 23, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:
San Francisco 49ers punt returner Kyle Williams has received numerous death threats after two costly turnovers during Sunday’s NFC Championship game. After reading of these stupid comments, I can’t help but laugh. If 49ers fans think they lost yesterday’s NFC title game because of Williams, they don’t understand the game of football. When fans wish death on someone, it’s clear there’s something seriously wrong with them. Javier Pasquel tweeted, “@KyleWilliams_10. I hope you, you’re wife, kids and family die, you deserve it.” Justin Junio tweeted, “Jim Harbaugh, please give @KyleWilliams_10 the game ball. And make sure it explodes when he gets in his car.” Rashad Bates tweeted, “@KyleWilliams_10 two costly fumbles #reallydude? Enjoy the entire offseason knowing YOU cost us the Super Bowl I pray we resign Ginn #smh” Cole Mathew MitGuard wrote on his Facebook page, “Kyle Williams… you need to leave San Francisco forever, you should never be allowed to play in the NFL ever again… Your play and your post game comments should be enough to earn yourself a spot in 49ers history’s… As the biggest POS to ever wear the red and gold. Lots of hope for next year, let’s just hope that KW gets hit by a bus, eaten by a lion, or dies in some other terrible way so he can’t ruin the 49ers season again… What a terrible piece of garbage you are KW, you ruined the game I have been waiting for over 10 years…” Of course this isn’t the opinion of the entire 49ers fan base. Some fans have shown their support for Williams and you can read them all here. At the end of the day, Williams is a human and made some crucial mistakes. Football is a team game and the 49ers didn’t lose just because of the two bad plays he made.
