ExtremeRavens: The Sanctuary

Oher says The Blind Side hurt his career


Recommended Posts






The 6-4, 315-pound offensive tackle started immediately as a rookie and helped the Ravens win a Super Bowl in 2012. But his production declined in 2013, and the Ravens did not re-sign him. He then went to Tennessee after inking a four-year, $20 million contract, but was released following an injury-plagued season.

Now with the Panthers, Oher spoke about the movie following Wednesday's minicamp practice, where he got into a scrap with second-year defensive end Kony Ealy.

"I'm not trying to prove anything,'' Oher said, via ESPN.com. "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. It's something else off the field. That's why I don't like that movie.''




Um, 3rd team in a short career pretty much tells the tale of a player's skill, not an opion based on a movie....
