At least Jackson and Dorsey don't completely suck like Robert Ayers. He can't rush the passer or stop the run.
That's not really true. In 2010, Dorsey was asked to rush the passer more times than Hali was.
Robert Ayers had the same number of sacks (6) last season, in 389 pass rushing snaps, as Dorsey and Jackson have in their entire careers, combined
(in 2266 pass rushing snaps). He's also pretty good against the run.
You know how Jackson took time to develop and turn into a somewhat worthwhile player? Same thing with Ayers, only Ayers is a better all around player.
