Welcome to the SAN FRANCISCO 49ers EXTRA podcast on TheSportsVirus.com!
Every Tuesday we chat with Former 49ers QB Steve Bono. Today Mark Purdy from the Bay Area News Group fills in for Steve and we discuss the big picture for the 49ers going forward.
Purdy has been with the San Jose Mercury News since 1984 and has covered more than 30 Super Bowls.

Purdy talked to The Sports Virus about whether or not the 49ers and Colin Kaepernick should part ways:
“I think they’ve got to move on and he’s got to move on. I just don’t like the body language he’s had here this past year and I’m not talking about kneeling down for the national anthem, that’s something totally separate. That’s his deal and that’s fine. I think he’s sincere about all of that stuff. But, if you look at the way he carries himself on the field during drives versus other guys like Derek Carr or Aaron Rodgers, you can tell they are the leaders out there. Colin just looks to me like a guy waiting for the next play to come in. He doesn’t ever yell at receivers for dropping the balls and I guess that’s being a good teammate, but you know what, maybe he should yell at the receivers for dropping the ball…I just don’t see him as a leader of the offensive unit. I think HE’S done with this team.”
Steve Bono will be back next Tuesday as we analyze the 49ers/Rams game. Thanks so much for listening!
