I loved James in his prime, but last year he looked to me to always be a step slow, especially in coverage. I dont get where people say he was really coming on at the end cause he was finally getting healthy. I didn't see much difference. He made some plays but nothing extraordinary and he still usually was trailing whoever he was suppose to cover. I think it is time to let go of the past and move on.
Troy can still be that 'X' factor that the other team has to worry about for another year or two, IMHO.
i think when people say he was coming on, they are referring to QB pressure. I wouldn't gauge my OLB's play on coverage skills over QB pressure.
