As if James thrived. We all heard the silliness Herring & Wade had to say about James & his play was hardly what was advertised by Wade & co. Ryans play at the end of the 2011 season was picking up & he was playing well. Kubiak made that claim himself following the season & that was despite Ryans playing in the unkind 3-4. I would take Ryans over James any day & twice on Sunday regardless of the scheme. He may have had only 1 sack, but you have to have your number called to get a sack. I doubt it was a free for all for him & he just didn't make the play.
The running plays funneled towrads James as well. Of course they were designed to run up the middle & he was either swallowed up by a block or missed the tackle.
