    Titans offensive tackle Michael Oher says his critics don’t know what they’re talking about, and he’s sick of it.

    Asked about speculation that Oher might end up on the bench behind rookie first-round draft pick Taylor Lewan, Oher said he hasn’t heard it. And then he proceeded to indicate that he has heard it, and he doesn’t appreciate it.

    “I don’t know anything about any speculation because I know what type of player I am,” Oher told the Tennessean. “I’m kind of tired of getting disrespected by a lot of people who don’t know anything about the work I put in and how hard I work, and the love and passion I have for this game.”

    It was surprising that the Titans drafted Lewan so soon after signing Oher to a four-year, $20 million contract, and the presence of Lewan on the roster has led to plenty of talk that Oher may be gone well before those four years are done. But for now, Lewan is backing up Michael Roos at left tackle, and Oher is manning the right side. And Oher doesn’t want to hear anything different.

    Don't want to be disrespected? then perform respectably.

    Take care of your business and the rest will take care of itself.

    This. Although he did play well on Saturday, but that needs to continue day in and day out.

    He hasn't been given a chance to perform respectably yet, that is what I read into this.

    Yeah- well that's ok. Talk is cheap. Let his actions express his displeasure when the opportunity arises.
