It's all about putting pressure on the QB. Look at the Colts-Cowboys game for example. In that game the Cowboys pressure on Manning was very very good and Roy had an amazing game. He suffered a TD by Dallas Clark, but there aren't many safeties in the NFL who can match-up one on one on Dallas Clark...
Roy is a liability in coverage but is a true playmaker.. If you give the opposite QB a lot of time to throw he can beat him everytime, but if you put pressure on the QB Roy is gonna make plays..
