Around The League's own Dan Hanzus kick-started a national storyline this week when he noticed that Colin Kaepernick was "favoriting" all the hateful messages he was receiving on Twitter.

On Thursday night, Kaepernick responded in the best way possible during San Francisco's 35-11 rout over the St. Louis Rams. The 49ers quarterback converted a handful of third-and-long plays to extend two lengthy touchdown drives. After the game, NFL Media's Rich Eisen asked Kaepernick about all his Twitter critics.
"That's all right," Kaepernick said. "They can tweet to me tonight."
