Watch out, NFL

The San Francisco 49ers actually do have a big-play threat at the receiver position and he's been here all along.

It was supposed to be a simple eight-yard gain on a third down play, just enough for a first down. 

Kyle Williams, unjustly buried near the bottom of the 49ers depth chart for much of the season, had other ideas. 

He made the catch, then it was off to the races as he sprinted towards the end zone leaving a trail of Rams defenders. 


It was like something straight out of the Fast and Furious movies, only more entertaining. 

The 49ers offense may lack big-name stars, but they sure do have a bunch of quality weapons. A different player is stepping up each week to get the job done, thus making it difficult for defenses to focus in on a single player. 

Ted Ginn did it Week 1 against Seattle with two returns for touchdowns. 

Delanie Walker did it at the Lions capping off an improbable comeback.  

Bruce Miller caught a crucial touchdown pass versus the Redskins

Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree have also done it at various times throughout the year.  

Sunday, it was Kyle Williams who provided the big plays. The second-year pro out of Arizona State now actually leads the wide receivers with three touchdown receptions on the season and appears to be a threat to go the distance each time he gets the ball.

With teammate Braylon Edwards sidelined and ineffective, Williams will be seeing much more playing time as the 49ers prepare for the playoffs. 

Translation: There will be plenty more of these highlights, especially with that speed.
