Why would you laugh? If Roman starts for us, we're guaranteed another year of horrible FS play, ZERO interceptions and ZERO forced fumbles from that position.
If you're a 49er fan, I don't get how that's funny.
It just pisses me off that everyone is ready to toss him overboard without even having another safety to replace him.
I mean this with all sincerity and no disrespect to you or to Roman....but I don't think we could do much worse if I started at FS. That's how bad this guy is.
Ok, kidding aside, it's not going to take much to replace him since he hasn't been able to make any plays for us the last few years. He hasn't picked off a pass since 2006, and I don't even remember the last time he forced a fumble. Dude, it's Roman's time to step aside and let someone....ANYONE, take his place.
I hope he stays at least 1 more year, someone has to help Goldson. He has the ability but he is still young and needs some expeirence. Plus we dont need two young guys at that position, isnt Reggie a FS now also?

What if he stays as a back-up at the cost of a roster spot that makes us cut someone who may be developed? In other words, if Goldson is the starter but we see enough flashes out of Jimmy Williams to show he could develop into a solid back-up or more, then I'd rather keep him around (or anyone else in that situation) than Roman.
We know what we have in Roman. I was screaming that he sucked when we signed him, and he has done nothing to show me ANY different. He is an average at best tackler, and a huge liability in pass defense. He hurts the team while on the field, so why keep him around at all? So what if he knows the system? So he knows where he "should" be and what he "should" do, but doesn't have the ability to execute it and BE in that position?
Roman was foolish for requesting a trade any damn way. What, did he think there was actually a market for his skill set? He requested a trade because he didn't want to be a back up here, but he damn sure ain't gonna start on another team.

I understand everyone wanting him out, i really do. BUT we already know hes not going to start, so whats the harm of keeping him as a backup, hes only making 900,000$$$ and we really have nothing behind Goldson. As of right now he is the back-up FS. If we draft a safety THEN I would think about cutting him. Sorry guys but we really have no other alterative right now.
