It wasn't too long ago that Alex Smith was throwing 1 touchdown and 11 picks and now watching the 49ers play football is fun. That defense is leading a resurgence of sorts for smashmouth, hard hitting football and they are stacked from the line to the safeties.
Jim Harbaugh has assembled a hell of a staff and a hell of a team. He can coach some football.
