yes, saying it that way avoids the reality Ryans played full 16 game season after he tore his ACL....and Beason went back to IR.
and yes, if you only go off the stat sheet there tackles were about the same. If you watched Beason in 2012....he just wasn't good. I didn't expect Beason to be Beason as there are about 20 threads stating that. He wasn't average. He was a liability.
Ryans tore his achilles heel the same as Beason. As for Ryans he didn't play well in 2011 either, he was largely restricted to first and second down and was a liability as well. That is what an achilles injury does to you especially year 1. And he was in the wrong scheme. Why else would Houston essentially give him away to Philly.
But that is history. It isn't what happened but will happen in 2013. Will Beason return or be gone. I would think that if you were a Panther fan you would hope he comes back 100% and is great given we can't afford to get rid of him. You seem way too contrary and negative most of the time.
