Get rid of Kyle Williams or keep him?

flawed survey. The keep him option also says "he is the best", which nobody agrees with.

All teams do this. Its part of being a fan.

Philly wanted to run Mcnabb and Reid out of their stadium after the NFC championship and super bowl losses. Giants fans wanted Coughlin out in week 9. Andthose are actually good players and coaches.

Not a 5th WR....

Niner fans are considered soft. Look at all the coddling Alex Smith gets and all the coddling KW is getting. These guys are grown men who get paid for this. A muffed punt and a fumble punt in the NFC championship game is intollerable. And we should tell this guy to "hold his head up high."

Nah. KW has done everything to earn a shot to be on this roster next season. And he will receive that opportunity. That's that.

we have only two WR's under contract, Williams and Crabtree. Two must-sign WR free agents, who aren't guaranteed to come back. We need a new starting WR in either the draft or free agency.

given all of that its pretty unlikely that we'll be able to bring in so many new quality WR's that Kyle Williams doesn't make the team. He's a good receiver and still has a lot of promise, plus he has the advantage of knowing some of the offense.

Maybe he won't make the team anyway, but I think people should make peace with the fact that he will probably be a part of this team next year, and we should hope that he uses his failures to motivate him to greater success.

This is a ridiculous thread.

The only way Kyle Williams isn't on this roster next year is if he cannot make the team. It has nothing to do with his fumbles this year.

What message does it send if a guy makes a mistake that he gets cut for it? The kid is a better receiver than Ted Ginn and was only in his 2nd year.

Whoa! Common sense? Here? What is this world coming to?

You are 100% correct. Every word.

The current generation of 49er loves crappy football players and will continue to make excuses for them until the cows come home.

It's all that gosh darn rock n' roll music!

LOL. Sus, don't ever change. If it were up to you we'd only have 30 players on the roster.
To be honest, does anybody think, that any other team would pick this guy up after what he did in the NFC Championship?
If this would have happened on a regular season Sunday, Williams would have been CUT on Monday. For all you who keep whining/rationalizing that "it takes a team," "1-for-13 on 3rd down," blah blah blah, that's just LAME. Yes the offense was struggling, and of course you can deconstruct every game to say "well if this guy did this, then that would or wouldn't have happened." Stop it. The facts are that, as much as Smith/Offense were struggling, at the beginning of the 4th qtr they had enough points to win. The Niner D was KILLING Manning and the Giants...I don't think they even made it past midfield in 2nd half / OT, EXCEPT for the two gifts from Williams.

Sorry, the dude is a bubble player to begin with, easily replaceable...his modest WR skills are not even close to offsetting the liability of his PROVEN low football IQ. Don't forget, besides his spotty history in college, he almost cost the Niners the #2 seed in that Dec. 24th game against the Seahawks...Niners were very lucky a questionable personal foul was called on the 'Hawks on the KO return where Williams slipped and didn't realize he was NOT down, and then fumbled on the hit.

YES!

Nobody is saying that he's a "Sure Fire #1 WR", but the kid has some serious talent. If you don't see that it's because you really don't want to or are completely blinded by anger.

Thankfully Baalke and Harbaugh aren't quite so ready to throw talent away because of a bad game. Nobody was preaching about curring him before the NFC Championship game. It should be no different now. Sometimes players have a bad day. It's that simple.
I strongly believe that since Kyle Williams is no superstar in waiting, that he has show he is a decent option as 4th or 5th wide out, we can early replace his talent. If we use an un-drafted rookie or late round pick to replace him, seeing as that is where you look for diamonds in the rough. We can save cap room needed to resign some of our better know talents. One of the reasons he was brought in was our search for a kick returner, we now see that kick returning is best left to Ted Ginn, and we all know Ted Ginn is best left on the bench when the offense is on the field.
Not only can we early replace and save money, the team would avoid the inevitable booing and animosity from the fan base, cutting him is a win win situation. So do us all a flavor Trent, cut him and move on, show the team we are about accountability and results.

Complete, utter, unadulterated BS. He would NOT have been cut and he WON'T be cut unless he is not the 4th or 5th best WR on the team when the final cutdowns come next year.

Anyone who thinks that really has no freakin' clue what they are talking about.
