“The Blind Side” may have done wonders for Sandra Bullock’s career, but for Michael Oher it’s been nothing but a burden.
The Carolina Panthers tackle, the subject of the 2009 movie and book of the same name, said after a minicamp scuffle Wednesday that the box office hit has been nothing but a negative for his career on the field.
“I’m not trying to prove anything,” Oher told ESPN Wednesday. “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.
