Did the Giants specifically target Kyle Williams in NFC Championship game?
The Giants’ strategy against the 49ers: Play dirty.
Everyone knows that many factors contribute to winning a game. Factors like health, luck and weather conditions all play a part in the game. As does, above all, strategy. And the Giants sure know that.
There were a lot of mistakes made in the Giants vs. 49ers game. Many of which cost the 49ers a handful of points. Most notably, punt returner Kyle Williams’ fumbles that cost the 49ers at least 10 points.
After the game, the Giants player were joyfully basking in their glory in the locker room when a controversial aspect of their game plan was revealed.
According to reports, the Giants were especially violent toward Williams because they knew he had suffered several concussions in the past.
Devin Thomas, the reserve wide receiver who recovered both of Kyle Williams’ fumbles, told the Star Ledger, “He’s had a lot of concussions. We were just like, ‘We gotta put a hit on that guy.’ … [Giants reserve safety Tyler] Sash did a great job hitting him early and he looked kind of dazed when he got up. I feel like that made a difference and he coughed it up.”
So one man’s concussion, is another team’s ticket to the Super Bowl.
Watch your backs, Patriots (and your knees, ankles, shoulders, heads, or any other previously injured body part), the Giants are out to get you.
