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.
I don't remember bringing in any comparisons to James. Just pointing out Ryans obvious deficits.
