The New Orleans Saints blew a golden opportunity to play in the NFC Championship game next Sunday. Defensive back Marcus Williams whiffed on a tackle that allowed Stefon Diggs, of the Vikings, to rumble into the end zone for the game winning score as time expired.
Tough break for the rookie, the play cost his team and he’s a young guy just getting started in the NFL. He seemed to be ok after the game. No doubt he saw the comments, memes, and gif’s on social media. Looks like the young man has a good support system and is taking it all in stride.
Williams took to Twitter to share the following:
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!????
