We’re back Sacramento!

After a week’s hiatus, JayMarZZ and Amil are back talking all things 49ers ahead of the team’s Week 8 road trip to Southern California. Will the 49ers beat the Los Angeles Rams in Levi’s South? How will Christian McCaffrey fare in game two of being a 49er? How important is it to go into the Bye Week with a win?

On the latest edition of the Return of the Empire podcast, JayMarZZ and Amil dive into the 49ers’ struggles this season and if they can turn it around.

Topics Discussed:

  • Did the 49ers give up in Week 7?
  • Does San Francisco still have an elite defense?
  • Injury updates: Will Samuel, Kinlaw, or Armstead play?
  • CMC’s debut & will he be heavily featured against the Rams?
  • The offensive line struggles
  • Is it a big deal to go into the bye week on a positive note?

 

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