San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Kyle Williams felt the full force of an angry fanbase after earning the goat label in Sunday's NFC Championship. It was Williams who fumbled twice, leading to a touchdown in regulation and the game-winning field goal in overtime. Following the game, fans took to Twitter and lit up Williams with death threats and even more pointless nonsense in a ridiculous moment of irrationality.
But there is some good in this story, and it comes from a seven-year-old. Ben Mankiewicz shared a story about a youngster who was in tears after the game, asking why Williams had to fumble. When the child's father asked, "If this is the way you feel, how sad do you think Kyle Williams is?" the tears went away and the youngster asked if he could write the 49ers wide receiver a letter.
The letter, which is probably the best thing you'll read today, is after the jump.
Dear Mr. Williams:

We could all learn a lot from the young man.
