Alex Smith Is A Horror Movie Villain

At least according to San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh. He said as much in his press conference.

How important is resiliency to the success of an athlete? And are you seeing that in Alex Smith?

"I think resiliency is really important. It’s a very important thing to have. 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 and bouncing back and those types of things. But, you prefer to be the guy in the movies that’s the relentless guy, who’s resilient and he always finds a way to kill you as well, or the enemy. So, that’s where we’d rather go. We’d rather go from resilient to relentless."

This requires some serious investigation. Which serial killer character profile does Smith match best?

Jason Voorhees: Silent, expressionless, psychologically impervious. It's hard to think that Smith is really Voorhees though, because Smith isn't an unstoppable killing machine. Voorhees also probably would never be booed off a horror film and replaced by David Carr.

Michael Myers: Also silent, but also stealthy in his movements. Smith does retain some mobility and can definitely make a play happen with his mobility. Although he rarely does.

Freddy Krueger: Haunts your dreams. Kills you in your sleep. Sounds like every Niners fan for the past six years having to deal with Smith as their starting quarterback, doesn't it?

Hannibal Lecter: Hey, someone's been devouring the 49ers offense from within lately.

Sheesh, now that you think of it, there is a lot of serial killer in Smith. Now he just needs to start killing some NFL teams on a regular basis, and the profile will fit just right.
