Bay Area football fans remember Steve Young as the Hall of Fame quarterback who led the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl victory in 1995, throwing a record-setting six touchdown passes. Young was the most valuable player of that game, and of the season. But less well known are Young's struggles with anxiety, which he writes about in his new memoir "QB: My Life Behind the Spiral." Young joins us in the studio to talk about his life in football, his Mormon faith, and the concussion that ended his career at age 37.

Guests:

Steve Young, co-author, "My Life Behind the Spiral"; former quarterback, San Francisco 49ers
