Kaepernick Motivated by Favorite Tweets

Posted Sep 24, 2013

Colin Kaepernick has been reading most of what’s being directed to him on Twitter.

Colin Kaepernick has been reading most of what’s being directed to him on Twitter.

After an NFL.com story shared how the 49ers quarterback added negative tweets to the “Favorites” section of his personal Twitter account, Kaepernick explained why he’s paying attention to the feedback.

“It’s something that I do for me,” Kaepernick said. “It helps me.”

With the 49ers on the first two-game losing streak in Jim Harbaugh’s coaching tenure, every move from the organization has been analyzed, even the ones on social media.

Kaepernick, however, is keeping his focus on working this week. A short week of preparation for the St. Louis Rams increases the attention to detail.

Offensive coordinator Greg Roman said the Rams “probably” have the best defensive front the 49ers have faced.

Kaepernick agreed the Rams have a tough defensive unit. But the 49ers quarterback was more vocal about ending the team’s current slide.

“I think everybody knows that we have to get better,” Kaepernick said. “We’re 1-2 for a reason.”

Kaepernick only pointed the finger at himself for the team’s recent struggles.

“I’m not going to call out anybody,” he said. “I’m going to look at myself before I look at anyone else.”

Roman said the offensive issues are group-wide. Extending drives is the biggest key to the 49ers sustaining success this Thursday night.

“I think everybody’s got to get into a rhythm early,” Roman said. “When you stay on the field, then you get to move through your game plan accordingly.”
