Sure Ayers can play well for a few snaps, but if they try to depend on him as much as they did on Dumervil, our defense will suffer for it.
I don't care where he was drafted, I care if he can play. Ayers can be a replacement for a few snaps, maybe a whole game. But 16 games? We already know he can't do it.
This phrase "rock solid" seems appropriate, because 3 sacks is only a few more than I would expect if we had actually placed a literal rock at LDE for 2011.
Not gonna lie, that made me giggle.
You don't like him, fine. This sounds a lot like the people that hated Knowshon Moreno as well and refused to see his good qualities. Hopefully, we'll have a consensus opinion on Ayers' worth after this season.
