1991 wasn't a good year for Young, He tried to do too much and didn't keep it simple. There trade rumors too....of 49ers trading Young to the Raiders. And then after a subpar first half of the season, Young got hurt. When Bono came in, he kept it simple. He was a right handed thrower like Montana and threw similar well timed and easy to catch passes to the receivers. He stayed in the pocket often (unlike Young who would freelance a lot), and may it easier on the OL to block for him.
However, once Young figured out the right way to play...there wasn't much comparison to what you got from Bono.
