Welcome to the SAN FRANCISCO 49ers EXTRA podcast on TheSportsVirus.com!
Every Tuesday we chat with Former 49ers QB Steve Bono. Today we discuss the Niners 28-0, Monday Night Football, Week 1 win over the Los Angeles Rams and the Colin Kaepernick protest.
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 Colin Kaepernick’s protest:
“…I wouldn’t want that focus on me. You’re part of a team. I’m fine with him speaking out about it, but how do you consciously feel good about kneeling if front of all of those service men and women? That would bother me quite a bit…It’s become about Colin and not the team. You don’t want to be a guy standing by himself isolating yourself from the team. It’s not healthy for the team. You don’t want to be a distraction…I’m surprised that he’s still here. It’s been a distraction – just everything that went on last year with all the injuries that nobody really seemed to know about (and) given the issues with Trent (Baalke) last year…There’s a battle for power within the organization.”
Come back next Tuesday as we analyze the 49ers game in Carolina. Thanks so much for listening!
