God Help Us, Mark Roman to Start Sunday

pleaseMatt Maiocco is reporting that safety Mark Roman is slated to get his first start of the season.

Mark Roman is getting the start due to starter Michael Lewis sustaining his third concussion on the season. The 49ers are taking a conservative approach with Lewis.

    I'm surprised some of the bandwagon fans aren't more upset that Nate Davis won't make the trip. Based on all of the blogs I read, Hill can only take us so far so we should put in Davis now, right? LOL.. Real 9er fans aren't tripping. We will be fine. Sean Hill and Mark Roman will have career games and we will win by 17. Of course, I'm baked right now so ask me again in the morning and we'll see if I'm still so optomistic..

    GO NINERS!!

    I thought Roman went on IR with that phenomenal effort in the Vikings game.

    M.Lewis is a run stopping Safety and we are facing a pass-happy offense this Sunday. So, hopefully that can ease the pain a little bit for us fans. A little off topic here, I’m really shocked to how much fans downgrade us because of one game vs ATL!!!

    Not only was Roman the one who gave up the winning play to the Vikes (Some say it isnt true but whos fault was it then?) Also he gave up the play to Roddy White he was supposed to cover the top with the hitch and both of them got out run, hate Clements hes a hard hitter but he has some lousy coverage from time to time…

    to be honest, roman has looked good when he’s played this year. i don’t think roman is a ball hawking safety but he’s rarely out of position.

  • NinerPaul

    My assesment of Roman >> Say a guy like Sean Dawkin's he is going win 80 to 90% of the playes towards him by either a good read, good coverage, or by his intimidation by his fierce hitting and reputation there of. Roman is going to win about 70% of the time, he's decent at reading plays and covering he's average to slightly above average, but his intimidation factor is average to below average.

    I don’t see what the problem is, I think Roman has a chip on his shoulder after almost being released last season, he has something to prove! I like Roman, so people on here do not like em, but I think sunday he will impress. I will be at the game on sunday for a diagnosis and I feel like roman will make some big plays. I hope we squash the Texans, everyone here in “SNOBBY” Houston have no love for the 49ers, and they need a reality check!! Like I said before, If we win, I will be talkin shit and laughing my ass off all the way down to the parking lot!

      I Hope you we win and you do!!!

    Shaun Hill will be fine and will remain the starter as long as we remain in contention, which we will! Enough of the Alex and Nate talks they are not playing this year unless something unexpected happens. If our O-Line can give Shaun Time and open up holes for Gore, we will be fine. We need this game tomorrow and off a bye week, we will get it.

    About to get ready for the game. I am sure I'll see alot of wanna-49er bandwagon fans wearing crabtree jersey and such! Pissed me off I was going to the mall last night to pic up a montana jersey for my kid brother and this bastard snached it up from me when I got their, I asked him if he was a big fan and his reply was I just started watching the niners when they got crabtree! Ya alot of fans from Houston could care less when we were losing, all they knew about us is that we were from San Francisco. Bastards! I cant stand these new wave of 49er crabtree clones here in Texas their f***king poping up everywhere! I sure I will see a shitload at the game today, true fans like us got to put up with these wanna be bastards! Go get another team like the panthers you punks! I hope we kick the texans butts and give the sports casters around here a reality check on monday morning because they hate our 49ers! Sundays game if sucessful will wake up alot of houstonians to what kind of team we got here! I hope we destroy them 45-10, I know wishful thinking, my guess is 34-10. That is my prediction! Go niners, kick some snobby Houston ASS!!

    fire raye now 21-0 and the niners just got over the 50 yard line? God help us.

  • wickerman

    holy crap – smith remembers how to throw – for now…

  • wickerman

    GREAT game. Obviously pissed the 9ers lost, but finally a spark. The D is in trouble. They gave up WAYYY too many big plays.

    The Smith pick at the end sucked, but he was excellent until then. I'd love to complain about the pick and 2 delay of games (the other penalty that looked like delay was 12 men on the field) but for a guy who hasn't played in 21/2 years can i really be critical?

    I say hey try again next week too. Hill did well for us, but the spark is definitely with smith.

  • ninerfaithful
