49ERS EXTRA: Season Finale-Steve Bono Says 1st Option: Keep Jimmy G, 2nd Option: Get Wentz

49ers Extra Logo nostripe sm

Welcome to the SF 49ers EXTRA podcast on TheSportsVirus.com!

During our 2020 season- finale podcast, former Niners QB Steve Bono analyzes the week 17 loss to the Seahawks and evaluates how the players performed in what resulted in an injury-riddled 6-10 season. Plus, he looks forward to what SF will do in the off-season, especially at the quarterback position.

BONO ON JIMMY G’S POSSIBLE RETURN: “I think that they restructure his deal, give a majority of it to him in a signing bonus and I’m sure Jimmy would be fine doing that because he’s making just as much money if not more…Yes, he’s been hurt, but when he’s playing he’s proven to be a winner.”

BONO ALSO CONTEMPLATES THE SITUATION IF JIMMY G ISN’T COMING BACK: “I know Kyle (Shanahan) has a history with Matt Ryan, but if it were me I would want my guy to be Carson Wentz. He’s younger, I think he’s a good player and he’s got more mobility than Matt.”

Welcome to the SF 49ers EXTRA podcast on TheSportsVirus.com!

Every week former 49ers QB Steve Bono analyzes the Niners game. This week we discuss the loss to Washington and issues that Steve thinks are similar for all of the Niners QBs: “In the pocket there’s not a sense of timing or rhythm to it and that’s where I don’t think they’re coached that well because they all kind of do the same thing.”

49ERS EXTRA: Mullens Exposed In MNF Loss, Bono Says He’s Not A “Difference Maker”

49ers Extra Logo nostripe sm

Welcome to the SF 49ers EXTRA podcast on TheSportsVirus.com!

Every week former 49ers QB Steve Bono analyzes the Niners game. This week we chat about the Monday Night loss to the Bills which exposed flaws in the SF defense and QB Nick Mullens. Honestly I don’t know if he’s good enough to be the difference maker,” says Bono. “Kyle (Shanahan) likes having him in there, his teammates like having him in there because he gets them to the right play, he’s getting them out of trouble. Maybe that’s something that (CJ) Beathard doesn’t do as well, but God when they have to be in a throwing situation I would like to have seen Beathard slinging it around last night.”

49ERS EXTRA: Steve Bono On Loss To Saints “The Running Game Is Killing Us”

49ers Extra Logo nostripe sm

Welcome to the SF 49ers EXTRA podcast on TheSportsVirus.com!

Every week former 49ers QB Steve Bono analyzes the Niners game. This week we chat about the loss to the Saints in a game where San Francisco failed to get its running game going. Jerick McKinnon was not the answer: “He’s not that big of a person to be smashing it up there in-between the tackles. You would think the zone read runs would benefit him, but there must be an explosion that’s just not there unfortunately…I think we know now why he wasn’t playing much before…the running game is killing us.”
