Former Titans offensive tackle Michael Oher says Blindside was a bad idea

Many people wanted to see Michael Oher succeed, but that has not really happened since he entered the league.

Well the former Ole Miss standout/movie star is upset about the movie, and all the criticism behind it.

“I’m not trying to prove anything,” Oher said, according to ESPN’s David Newton. “People look at me, and they take things away from me because of a movie. They don’t really see the skills and the kind of player I am. That’s why I get downgraded so much, because of something off the field.”

“This stuff, calling me a bust, people saying if I can play or not… that has nothing to do with football,” the 29-year-old continued. “It’s something else off the field. That’s why I don’t like that movie.”

Well Michael, you ahould be thankful. When your career is over you will still be making royalties on your story. It might end up paying better than your NFL career. Stop crying and play football.
