What's Worse: Kyle Williams '12 NFCC Fumble(s) or Roger Craigs in '90

What's Worse: Kyle Williams '12 NFCC Fumble(s) or Roger Craigs in '90

Kyle was waaaayyyy worse for me. The fumble in OT was bad enough but the bullsh*t off his leg was one of the most inexcusable plays I've ever seen. Why was he running at a rolling football? A careless, 2nd string punt returner cost the team a trip to the Superbowl and a possible championship. I never want to see him in a 49er uniform again.
@KEGster or maybe harbaugh wanted him to make a play in ot? Think of that after the ball to the knee screw up he had a huge return.
Roger Craig, hands down. Possible 3-peat, game won, all he had to do was hold onto the ball...

As for Williams, first play was inexcusable, but he made up for it by getting a 40yd return to get tying FG set up. As much as it hurt, I don't blame the fumble in OT as much. If the guy doesn't go all "Stretch Armstrong" on Williams, he has a wall setup on the right side for another 40yd play, setting us up for a FG attempt. He went for the big play and it just wasn't his day. But, this team was playing with house money with no expectation.
Kyle Williams is FAAAARRR worse. We already were pretty much an established dynasty when Craig fumbled. But we had a chance this year to get out of the gutter and win it all onto a new dynasty.

We could possibly go back to a 8 to 9 win team next year for all we know. That first one is always the hardest and we couldn't do it. Just ask Philly or the NYJ how fun it is to make a bunch of Championship games and lose.
Williams because he crushed all the 1981 comparisions cuz we didnt win the SB

Harbaugh would have come public and admitted if that was the case. As it stands now, a 3rd string backup returner tried to makeup for a huge mental blunder earlier in the game.....by making another blunder and ending our season.

Thanks again Kyle Williams. Looking forward to another season of you ''just trying to make a play''. FKN IDIOT

Agree 100%

We were on pace to be the new Patriots. Win a SB your first go around and you're talking about something really special down the line. Instead we are HOPING to be another Saints/Packers
