I think it's a gross oversimplification to say - Swann is better because both had their good matches but Swann also took wickets outside it- as it implies that Swann was as good as Johnson in his good match which is far, far from the truth.
Johnson - 11 wickets @ 36.27
Swann - 14 wickets @ 37.28
Johnson played one match less and is bowling in an Innings atm
Johnson also has 2 crucial 50s to his name. I know who I'd take.
