The San Francisco 49ers hasn’t gotten off to quite the start they had hoped for. They are currently 1-2 and quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been looking at all the nay-sayers on Twitter and marking them as favorites, possibly for motivation?
This is the tweet that pointed it out to me:

Now I think he is onto something about the motivation part because on September 11th he favorited this Tweet:

So anyways, Kaepernick has been favoriting tweets from 49ers fans that are relatively negative since their loss on Sunday. They range from disgruntled fantasy owners, to 49ers fans calling for Alex Smith to return.
Here are some of the tweets:
Go back to Nevada program or baseball. 49ers don’t want you “WE WANT ALEX” @Kaepernick7

Apparently this isn’t new to this week, he’s been doing it for a while since the Super Bowl loss. It has definitely picked up though since the loss to the Colts.
I’m trying to see @Kaepernick7 get rocked this season every time he leaves the pocket, carries out a fake, or even touches the field

Black QB’s only good for 1 thing..and that’s getting in trouble off the field.
