I enjoyed Phil Taylor's column Goats Need Love Too (POINT AFTER, Jan. 30). When teams like the 49ers and the Ravens lose nail-biters, as they did in the conference championship games, the aftermath accentuates what it means to be part of a team. Pointing fingers divides a team and cripples it. Kyle Williams and Billy Cundiff made costly mistakes but then handled themselves with grace, a trait many athletes need to adopt.
