Mitchell produced the most of the 2 having less playing time. Plain & simple. There were slim to no games that I thought Cody absolutely stood out & was heads & tails above Mitchell & the numbers seem to support that. Now I also knew the injury excuse would rear it's ugly head for Cody, but Mitchell slightly outperformed Cody in 2011 as well, which was only Mitchell's 2nd season. For the last 2 seasons Mitchell has out performed Cody in limited action. Cody has never been a real force & whether he wore down or not is subjective because to be honest Cody's production has been limited for quite some time regardless of his health status, so how would we judge his disappearing act in 2012 when it is all to similar to his performances of years past.

As I said before, I don't think Cody was necessarily the better option. Mitchell has shown improvement though out the years & it will be hard to convince most that the player w/ less playing time & better stats is the worst of the 2 options. I also have a hard time believing that this position will suffer from the statistically better player finally getting the opportunity to play more & thus potentially produce more. That thought process simply doesn't make sense imo. Even if you somehow based your opinion off of what you watched only...it still doesn't say Cody was the better of the 2 IMO. I too watch games, some multiple times, & simply haven't seen Cody as ever being an irreplaceable force in the middle...in fact it always been quite the opposite.
Who ever said Cody wasn't replaceable? IMO he is the Kevin Walter of the defense. When I said average that wasn't a complement. To me average is serviceable. That's all he's ever been. Yet Mitchell hasn't been able to take his starting spot. I don't give a rats patuty about stats.

Using stats to compare players is like using the combine to rate prospects. It just doesn't tell the whole story. Especially when you hand pick the ones that suite your point of view. I find it laughable that you think digging up a few stats off the Internet should hold more weight than a really good personel man/ professional defensive coordinator opinion. But hey to each his own.

Cody is most likely done here and that (at this point) moves Mitchell to the starting role. If all we do is bring in a cheap FA or low round draft pick to back him up we are in trouble. That's my opinion. So we will just have to agree to dissagree.

We will find out soon enough who is right.
