Welcome to the SAN FRANCISCO 49ers EXTRA podcast on TheSportsVirus.com!
Every Tuesday during the NFL season we chat with Former 49ers QB Steve Bono. Today we talk about the 49ers season opening 23-3 loss to the Carolina Panthers. Complete analysis of what went wrong, including an early evaluation of new head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Bono spent 14 seasons in the NFL. He had a 5-1 record in his 6 Niners starts and finished his career 28-14 overall.

Bono talked to The Sports Virus about the 49ers play calling in the loss to the Panthers:
“(Carlos Hyde) had 5 yards a carry (45 yards on just 9 rush attempts). I’m not sure if Kyle (Shanahan) felt like he couldn’t run the ball anymore or that they had to throw the ball more to catch up. I felt like there wasn’t the mix that they had done so well with in the Minnesota game in the preseason, where there was lots of running the ball, lots of play action.”
Join us again next Tuesday as we discuss the week 2 game in Seattle. Thanks so much for listening!
