Give 49ers receiver Kyle Williams credit for this: He’s not hiding from the heat he’s taking over his disastrous performance in the NFC Championship Game.
Williams who set up the Giants’ game-tying touchdown with a muffed punt and the Giants’ game-winning field goal with a fumble, talked to reporters after the game and then talked to reporters again on Monday, and he said he realizes he didn’t do his job well and will be criticized for it.
“It’s one of those things you have to take accountability for,” Williams said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. “Everybody is responsible for what they do on the field. It’s something that I was responsible for and I made a mistake, and it’s time to own up to it and move forward.”
Williams also insisted that the shoulder injury he suffered isn’t an excuse.
“I take full responsibility for the mistake that I did make,” Williams said. “You have to play with what you got. I was dinged up. Everybody was dinged up. That’s just football. Nobody is going to be 100 percent. I was going fine.”
On Twitter, where Williams got death threats, Williams hasn’t responded, other than to thank Kurt Warner and Deion Sanders for telling him to keep his head up. It sounds like Williams is doing that.
