For Whom the Tweet Tolls

The distinction between Kyle Williams and the outcasts on Twitter who hurled death threats at him and his family could not be more plain.

On one side of the coin we have Williams, who bravely returns kicks, running a gauntlet of heat-seeking missiles on search-and-destroy. Even more bravely, he faces his critics and takes responsibility for his mistakes, as he did following Sunday's devastating NFC Championship loss.

On the flip side we have poster children for arrested development, thumping their chests behind the anonymity of screen names, incapable of grasping the cowardice and self-referential emptiness revealed by their tweets.

Kyle Williams is an achiever who has ascended to the NFL, the highest level at which his craft can be performed. He had a bad day and his team lost a game.

For the Niners and Williams there will always be tomorrow. Alas, the same cannot be said for the Twits mired on Twitter, and therein lies the distinction between winners and losers.
