Thread: Michael Oher?

    Re: Michael Oher?



    If the coaching staff thinks any of the older guys are better run blockers than Oher than I hope they take him. I guess I agree with those that say that stand alone Oher is serviceable, but just barely. I think in a way he's wasting Yanda's good years. If Ossemele get's healthy you may see something special with him teaming up with a newly contracted Monroe on the left side, similar to JO and Edwin Mullitallo years ago (when Big Ed was healthy and Jamal Lewis ran heavily to their side). If you can get the same thing going with a motivated run tandem on the right side that would be highly effective. Yanda, if healthy, is more than capable. We need an RT that compliments him.
    If you break the rules you can't make the rules.

    I think if Oher would come back "on the cheap" that Ozzie would resign him. I'm not advocating
    his return, but feel the Ravens would be 'comfortable' with Oher back at RT... Bc

    Re: Michael Oher?

    Ya'll need to relax on the Michael Oher bashing.

    You know he is in the 98th percentile in "protective instincts."



    Seriosly, I dont hate Oher like some on here do. He's frustratingly inconsistent, but if Ozzie gets him for decent value and it gives us a little more depth (and "Just In Case" versatillity) at OL, I'm all for it. But I do want Wagner and/or someone else competing for the RT spot.

    Unfortunately, I have a feeling BC is right. If we resign Oher the front office would be fine wiht him at RT and it will just be him and Ricky Wagner competing for that RT spot. They probably wouldnt be looking for someone else.

    Oher has zero money worries given his family and the millions he has made. IMHO he was hungry for a ring and lost some fire last year.Seems like he is not a big spender or party guy either. Good for backup in 4 position even if Wagner or X wins the rt battles.

    Has he signed yet? That should tell you something. We lost Art Jones and Corey Graham and almost JJ who decided at the last minute to leave NY and come home but nobody wants Mr. Blind Side.

    Not yet. At this rate he'll return as a backup at minium wage. Nobody wanted him but Ozzie when he was drafted and nobody wants him now.

    That should tell you something.

    I don't think anyone here "hates" Michael Oher. But I think a lot of people do recognize the truth--Michael Oher is a bad player who has been coasting on the reputation of a movie and a good rookie year for 4 years now.

    At no point over the last 4 years has Michael Oher put together even ONE overall average year. He has had good games here and there, as you would expect of any player with the talent to make it to the NFL, but on the whole, he has never been better than below average over the course of a whole year. His bad games are horrifying.

    Yet he was a 1st round pick with the elite physical tools to justify his selection. People just get hung up on his physical tools and the fact that he had a good rookie year. But once the league had a chance to really scout his tape (and the officials stopped letting the Ravens get away with him moving before the snap) defenses figured him out and he has never adjusted.

    His technique is still atrocious. His awareness is atrocious. I don't think he gets it mentally, and the only thing that really stands out about him is that he used to be a good, tenacious run blocker. But he's actually become a loafer who doesn't play to the whistle over the last 2 years--he was the worst run blocking tackle in the league last year, in fact.

    I don't believe Michael Oher is worth anything more than the veteran minimum. His market seems ice cold thus far, but I'm thinking somebody will give him better than the veteran minimum based on his (fake) reputation and physical upside. In which case, goodbye and best of luck.

    Swing tackles are valuable. Id like him back cheap with open comp between him wagner and possibly another rookie like martin or moses etc

    I have always thought, and still do to this day, that he would be an excellent LG for us.

    Oher was ruined by the Ravens yo yoing him. He was ruined by expectations of being a T created by the movie. And he was ruined by poor Oline coaching. As someone else mentioned if Oher had been moved to guard he would probably be a pro bowler by now. Had they just left him at RT he would be a very good RT. The team moved him around and tinkered with their scheme and coaching the entire time he was here. It is probably best for all parties to part ways at this time.

    Re: Michael Oher?

    I love Oher as a swing guy too, just not the starter.

    If he could play LG too? If he returns and can't win the RT spot I'm all for moving his position again. Just to see if he can do it.

    A guy that can handle 3 spots can be extrmely valuable if you get in a pinch.

    I unfortunaately don't think Ricky Wagner is the answer at RT either. He impressed me as a tad concrete footed for RT. He loves to run block and engage. When he pass protects he anchors his feet quickly and the DE usually blows past him. I think he will have to do some major improvement to win the RT job this year.

    Maybe he's afraid he will fail the physical. .
