This NFL player had the best day on Twitter on Sunday

If you've followed Crabtree (who is very funny on Twitter) for any length of time, you know that he will periodically call out actor Samuel L. Jackson about using salty language on Twitter.
Crabtree pulled this move on Sunday.
Crabtree then retweeted some of the best responses by people who thought he was being serious.
This just made Crabtree step up his game against Jackson.
This led to a direct hit, because Jackson quickly sent out this tweet.
Wait! Some Grown Ass man reported me to Who for offensive language?! The Twitter police? The Headmaster? WHO??!!— Samuel L. Jackson (@SamuelLJackson) January 20, 2014
Crabtree's work was done and he was ready to call it a night.
You haven't experienced awkward until you've received dozens of insults intended for a man with a name similar to yours.— Tom Crabtree (@itsCrab) January 20, 2014
So he decided to play along.
Oh. I mean.....YES! I am Michael Crabtree! Welcome, new followers!— Tom Crabtree (@itsCrab) January 20, 2014
He even taunted Sherman.
The Buzzer reached out to Crabtree (Tom) and asked him about these developments.
"What a weird night," he told us. "I have some people who think Michael Crabtree actually called out Samuel L., but I've been getting tweets intended for Michael throughout the playoffs."
Crabtree also told us he picked up 2,000 new followers on Sunday night.
