There's a new mindset, a new attitude with the San Francisco 49ers under new head coach Jim Harbaugh so says former Utah quarterback Alex Smith.

The 49ers are off to a 3-1 start and Harbaugh praised Smith for being resilient in an SI.com article.

"I think resiliency is a very important thing to have," Harbaugh said in the story. "It's kind of like the guy in the movies who — no matter what you do to him, blow him up, shoot him, knife him — you can't kill him. And he keeps coming back."
