The 49ers fell one game short of playing the Patriots in the Super Bowl. Wait let me rephrase that, Kyle Williams muffed two punts to keep the 49ers from going to play the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
Kyle Williams this seasons Roger Craig.
I know some out there will say playcalling, some poor offensive play, referees, 3rd down conversions, etc. Yes I can agree with that. Alex Smith really only throwing two good passes, passing when they should have run, whistles being blown too soon and on and on…but you know what I don’t care. This loss falls on the hands of Kyle Williams. 49ers up 14-10 when Williams decided he was going to run the closest he possibly could to the punt and let it hit his knee and the Giants recovered and then put up 7. The offense did what they needed to from there. They tied the game. Overtime.
The 49ers defense stepped up and stopped Eli Manning twice in OT, only to put the ball into the hands of Kyle Williams, who once again muffed it and handed it back to the Giants.
I do say Congrats to the 49ers on getting to where they got, no one expected it. But if Kyle Williams wasn’t on the field this day, the 49ers most likely would have won.
