Getting the qb on the ground is what wins in this league,not almost getting there. Dummervill is far and away the better player and he's also younger. I don't see why this is even up for discussion.
It's not just about sacks. Connor Barwin had 12 sacks (same as Von Miller) in 2011 but only rated in the bottom third of 3-4 OLBs, and Texans fans now know why. Aldon Smith had 20 sacks in 2012 -- a great rating & year -- but his sackness ended after Justin Smith partially tore his triceps tendon mid-December. PFF ratings for the last 3 years:

2012,
Antonio Smith was rated 6th out of 34 3-4 DEs
Dumervil was rated 44th out of 62 4-3 DEs
2011,
Antonio Smith was rated 8th out of 32 3-4 DEs(Wade)
Dumervil was rated 30th out of 67 4-3 DEs
2010,
Antonio Smith was rated 43rd out of 65 4-3 DEs(Bush)
Dumervil did not play, torn pec.
