Kyle Williams said Wednesday he was "shocked" the Giants were not disciplined following comments by a couple of their players that suggested the San Francisco return man was targeted in last season's NFC Championship game because of his history of concussions.
Williams fumbled two punt returns, including one in overtime that led to Lawrence Tynes' winning field goal in the Giants' 20-17 victory over the 49ers.
As news of the alleged bounty scandal involving the Saints broke in the off-season, Williams said during Wednesday's media session he expected the Giants to be disciplined as well, which they were not.
The Giants said they never went after Williams' head.
"When the bounty stuff came out and [former Saints defensive coordinator] Gregg Williams had said the same things, basically, they [NFL] went for his [Williams'] neck with that and they took that to the absolute highest level they could," said Kyle Williams, on injured reserve after ACL surgery. "But it was almost like when the Giants said it, it was not a big deal. That's the only thing that kind of shocked me.
"I thought that would have the same reaction because it was the same exact thing."
