Default Robert Ayers on Sunday

I watched the game again and wow hes going to be a good one, he got up in Manning's face a lot and hit him, stopped the run a few times once with a monster hit on addai for a loss of yards. Ayers and the tight coverage from the secondary early was a huge reason we kept them bottled on offense for so long.

I think we got ourselves another good pass rusher, once Doom gets back these 2 will be a 3-4 OLB tandem that no O-line would want to face.

He can't do it alone this season tho I would love to see Hunter or Moss step up more Hunter hasn't been awful but he hasn't been good either and Moss is just invisible so far I think hes cut after this year despite the nice pre season.

Agree!

Meant to mention that in another thread. Also agree that he's not a game-changer, yet.
But, he seems to be improving into a force that teams have to deal with on every play.

****, man... imagine when Doom is back to 100% and those two guys are crashing the edges.




Moss is useless. His hussle apparently didn't keep him fly.

He's becoming a real bright spot in that front seven.

I still don't think he'll ever be a guy who'll get 12-15 sacks in a season, but he looks a very complete football player out there. Looks beastly against the run, can rush the passer well, plays his assignment nicely and isn't a complete liability in coverage by any means.

Looks a perfect compliment to Dumervil, it's a real shame that we'll have to wait until 2011 to see them on the field together.

He's strong vs. the run and rapidly improving as a pass rusher. He'll probably end up with around 7-8 sacks this year. He's going to be a very good 3-4 SOLB.

oh he was not all that good but our D line coaches seem to be developing his his game . He has played I would say double the snaps so far and he is keeping on his feet . he looks 10 times better than last year.

Ayers is turning out to be a hell of a pick by McDaniels, he gets tons of credit for it.

He will be the perfect complement to Dumervil when he gets back.

Didnt Mayock say he was going to be the best defensive player in the draft, it'd just take 2 or 3 years?

The idiots calling him a bust after one year as usual proven to be idiots.

Yeah Mayock did say that... I think the time frame was about 3-4 years though.

I bet his scouting went as follows:

scouting target 1: Robert Ayers

scouting target 2: a crueller

One word that describes Ayers: Power.

For those who have had a kinesiology class in college, you have studied the traits of athleticism. One of those traits is a thing called "power". Its different than strength. Its what I would call "torque load" or something similar. Its the ability to maximize impact, to move large objects as a function of strength and positioning. Ayers is powerful.

Its what Mayock saw in him before the draft. He saw that power with an excellent burst and nice speed. He also saw the commitment to learn. Im sure that he figured that Ayers would learn to couple his athletic gifts with a skillset of moves.

If Ayers does that, backs and QB's will fear him. Dude will hurt people.

Before the season, I was hoping for a best case scenario where Ayers blossoms into one of the defensive leaders, so that when Doom comes back, we have an amazing 1-2 punch. It definitely looks like a possibility. This year is a great opportunity for him to be "the man" with Doom out.... It would be really amazing to have 2 Pro-Bowl caliber OLB. That's the type of thing you can build a Top 5 defense around...

I'm not sure. He'll get the benefit of the doubt because of who his family is, but Ayers' ceiling is that of generational stars. If and when he totally puts his game together, he'll be unstoppable. We're already seeing some of that now. He and Champ (DJ to a lesser extent) have been the best players on the defense through the first three games.

Ayers/DJ/Dumervil? That's a dominant set of LB's. That's the total package. I guess we'll have to wait to see that until next year. Hopefully Champ and Dawkins will still be playing at their current levels, because if they are...this will be a dominant defense. A defense that can win games on its own.

I was impressed as well. Damn I can't wait to see him, DJ, and Doom in the same linebacking group.

Now if we can just draft a good young ILB to pair with DJ we will be set. Donta Hightower is eligible for the upcoming draft, Greg Jones, Te'O, Sturdivant, Galippo...

Ayers is a better LB than Dummervil in that spot.
