Okay, so I created this FanPost primarily to educate myself. I know a lot of people on this blog understand football terms really well and stuff, but I just don't know much about schemes and whatnot. So when i watch the running game, I notice the things like when Scott gets pushed back towards CJ when CJ is involved in a running play and stuff, but I don't know enough about football stuff to look for everything I need to look for to determine who sucks and when. I also realize that I'm probably never going to learn all that. So I am asking the people that are knowledgeable about football terms to rank Harris, Amano, and Scott.I am primarily interested in people's ranking of them from a run-blocking perspective, (as that is clearly what they struggle with the most) but feel free to rank them from a pass-blocking perspective too. Like I said, I am just trying to understand more about their value (or lack thereof) to the team. Also, I would prefer if you rank them based entirely on football value and ignore the value of each of them in relation to their salary/contract and stuff, but I will post their salary/contract info here so we can discuss that aspect of their value in the comments following initial rankings... or whatever...
Eugene Amano: 2/15/2010: Signed a five-year, $26.247 million contract. The deal contains $10.337 million guaranteed, including a $7.25 million signing bonus and $3.087 million of his first-year salary. 2011: $2.68 million, 2012: $3,182,500, 2013: $3.685 million, 2014: $4,187,500, 2015: Free Agent
Leroy Harris: 7/30/2011: Signed a two-year contract.
Jake Scott: 2011: $4.7 million, 2012: Free Agent

Finally, I waffled over whether the poll should be for who was the best of the three or who was the worst, but I'm trying to stay positive, so I went with best.
Now help me learn!
