As opposed to you,

Hello. Could I say "As opposed to you, I..." when giving a counterargument meaning "It's funny that you are criticizing me when it's actually you who didn't do anything/haven't gone far in life/etc."? Thank you.

Examples (made up by me):
Employee: How do you dare go home this early? We have to finish the project.
Employee2: As opposed to you, I did everything I was supposed to do. The fact that you did nothing and feel there is still lot to do is not my problem.

Friend: Oh, God. Why did you go there again and failed? I knew that it's going to be fiasco.
Friend2: As opposed to you, I tried.
