SF 49er Kyle Williams

Family "Devastated" ...

But Supportive After Mistakes

1/23/2012 2:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

San Francisco 49ers return man Kyle Williams
San Francisco 49ers return man Kyle Williams might be the most hated man in the Bay Area today -- and now his family is stepping up to defend him after a barrage of nasty threats from angry Niners fans. 

Williams' two monumental turnovers contributed heavily to yesterday's loss to the Giants -- and his stepmother, Jessica, tells TMZ no one feels worse about the game than the family ... saying they are "devastated." 

For those who don't know, Kyle's family is a big deal in sports -- his dad is Kenny Williams ... GM for the Chicago White Sox.

Jessica also referenced the wave of angry tweets aimed at her son, saying ... "We also know there are some people who have singled Kyle out, but there are many, many more that support him. We will rally around Kyle and keep him strong!"

Jessica added, "Kyle is a great athlete and we're looking forward to an outstanding season next year!"  If you missed it, here's how this season ended -- Niners fans ... look away.

It was raining that day and super slippery. I think that played a big part in loosing his grip on the ball. But oh well.. it was a good game.

Ha ha this big dumb millionaire gets paid to do one thing: hold on to the fvcking ball. And he can't even do that. He needs to return most of his salary, and issue a public apology, and then go hide somewhere for a very long time. What a loser!

Kyle call Hank Baskett. He can tell exactly where your career is headed after you screw up in the biggest game of the season.

TMZ just has to stop doing sports stories. To call his family a big deal in sports is just laughable. He's not even the biggest GM in his own town. Who writes this garbage and what does this have to do with celebrities? Serioulsy TMZ now I understand why you take money from the Kardashians to pump them up as their the only people you can touch as everybody else just blows you off until they actually need you. You should change the name to DMZ for D level stars.

I would say Williams totally gave the Game away, you just can'y have turnovers like that and expect to win a championship! Thanks, it was certainly a nail biter of a game!

Time for a fresh start now. Change your name to Kwanzaa, get more tattoos, and work on making your hands stronger so you can HOLD THE FRIKKEN BALL.
Homey basically handed the game to the Giants even though the NEIN-ers payed like crap.
