We’re back Sactown Sports and 49ers fans alike!

After a nice Thanksgiving break, the guys are back to talk Red & Gold football. And what a treat we have this weekend with the Miami Dolphins and former offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel coming to town Sunday afternoon.

On the latest edition of the Return of the Empire podcast, JayMarZZ and Amiliano Fragoso recap the 49ers’ dominant win over the New Orleans Saints, and which players will be playing Week 13 against the Dolphins. Plus, is Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay in the Bay Area? All that and much more on this week’s episode.

Topics Discussed:

  • Do the 49ers have the best defense in the NFL?
  • Why is the offense so inconsistent?
  • Where is DT Arik Armstead at? Will he return for Week 13?
  • The status of Deebo Samuel and his quad. Will he be a game-time decision?
  • Mike McDaniel is back, who has the advantage in the matchup?
  • Is is time for rookie RB Jordan Mason to shine?
  • The guy’s predictions for Week 13

The Return of the Empire podcast is a San Francisco 49ers podcast hosted by 49ers beat writer Amiliano Fragoso and producer Justin “JayMarZZ” Marshall for Sactown Sports 1140.
