Terrell McClain also had a lot of snaps, but from his position, that's promising.
What actually happens matters.

If you have 5 snaps against a bad player and/or don't get blocked on any five plays you could end up with 5 sacks.

That doesn't mean you showed more ability than a guy with 40 snaps with 15 being run plays, 8 being plays where you were in coverage, 5 where you stunted to get someone else a free lane and 5 where the qb threw the ball in a three step drop without any possibility at a sack. And oh yeah, youre playing against better competition.

This is not to say one guy is better than the other, but I don't get your logic here. Seems like a terribly basic way to look at things when we just had four straight weeks to look at actual football situations.
