Forget about what the media’s saying, Colin Kaepernick‘s harshest critiques are coming in at 140 characters or less.

After throwing for a career-high 412 yards against Green Bay in Week 1, Kap has stumbled along to two consecutive losses, combining for only 277 yards in the disappointing outings. The rough patch is uncharted territory for the second-year signal caller, but he’s finding his motivation to get back on track in an unlikely place: Twitter.

San Francisco fans, fantasy football enthusiasts and just plain meanies have been sending their nasty comments to him via the social media site, and to ensure that he’s getting the hate, No. 7 has been hitting the favorite button — a lot.

Check out some of Kaepernick’s recent favorites below, with a hat tip to’s Dan Hanzus.
