Marcus Williams thanks fans for support after playoff disaster
It’s fair to say that New Orleans Saints safety Marcus Williams has had a rough 24 hours, but he took time Monday to thank his loved ones, teammates, and “real fans” for their support.
Williams was largely responsible for the Minnesota Vikings’ walk-off touchdown in Sunday’s NFC divisional game, and was subjected to a torrent of abuse afterward. On Monday, he logged back into Twitter and sent a message to those who were still with him.
I appreciate my friends, real fans, family, and team for everything they have done for me this season all of the support is highly appreciated!No the season didn’t end as planned but one thing for sure I won’t let one play define the type of MAN or PLAYER that I am or will be!

Williams was obviously devastated after that mistake, and has taken full responsibility for what happened. He had a very good season for New Orleans, and seems to be handling this error as best as he can, which bodes well for his future.
