Michael Oher hasn't had an easy go of it since leaving Baltimore.
Oher started every game for the Ravens for five seasons, but in 2014 the team declined re-sign the 23rd overall pick in the 2009 draft.
He started 11 games for the Tennessee Titans last year, but again wasn't invited back. He's signed a two-year deal with the Carolina Panthers and is projected to start at left tackle, yet questions persist about his effectiveness.
That's a lot of uncertainty for a player who was the star of "The Blind Side," the Michael Lewis novel-turned-Hollywood hit. But what made the offensive lineman out of Mississippi a household name has also complicated his career, Oher told reporters on 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," Oher reportedly said. "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. ... That's why I don't like that movie."
Truth be told, he hasn't liked it for a while. Oher told The Baltimore Sun in 2013 that he was "tired of the movie."
