The Blind Side won good reviews from critics, but some people claimed that it made a couple of notable errors regarding the sport of football. Football wonks pointed out that Lewis misreported the number of Super Bowls the 49ers won, and the year in which the NFL allowed their players to have free agency. Sign In Sign Up. Plot Summary.

He's led his team to two Super Bowls, and won one. He's thirty-six years old. He's certain he still has a few good years left in him. He's wrong. He has less than half a second. Frank Gifford is in the booth, flanked by O.
Simpson and Joe Namath. Four other players, including, oddly, the Redskins' John Riggins, pile on. They're good for dramatic effect but practically irrelevant. The damage is done by Taylor alone. One hundred and ninety-six pounds of quarterback come to rest beneath a thousand or so pounds of other things.
Then Lawrence Taylor pops to his feet and begins to scream and wave and clutch his helmet with both hands, as if in agony. His reaction is a mystery until ABC Sports clarifies the event, by replaying it over and again, in slow motion.
Doug Flutie was probably a representative viewer.
Flutie had just finished a glorious college quarterbacking career at Boston College and started a professional one in the USFL. On the evening of November 18, , he was at home with his mother. She had the football game on; he had other things to do. It puts fear in your heart and makes you wonder what the heck you're doing playing football.
Everyone wants to know the whole truth but no one possesses it. Not the coach on the sidelines, not the coach in the press box, and certainly not the quarterback -- no one can see the whole field and take in the movement of twenty-two bodies, each with his own job assignment.
In baseball or basketball all the players see, more or less, the same events. Points of view vary, but slightly.
In football many of the players on the field have no idea what happened -- much less why it happened -- until after the play is done. Even then, most of them will need to watch a videotape to be sure. The fans, naturally more interested in effect than cause, follow the ball, and come away thinking they know perfectly well what just happened.
But what happened to the ball, and to the person holding the ball, was just the final link in a chain of events that began well before the ball was snapped.
At the beginning of the chain that ended Joe Theismann's career was an obvious question: who was meant to block Taylor? Two players will be treated above all others as the authorities on the play: Joe Theismann and Lawrence Taylor. The victim didn't have a view of the action; the perpetrator was so intent on what he was doing that he didn't stop to look.
I was thinking: keep him in the pocket and squeeze him. In his senior year, Michael begins considering his college options.
They offer him full room and board, tuition-free, at their colleges. Michael seems to be most interested in Ole Miss, in part because the Tuohys, as well as his tutor, Sue Mitchell, attended school there. Michael has a problem, though: he needs to bring up his grade point average in order to attend college on a sport scholarship.
Someone—perhaps more than one person—has complained to the NCAA that the Tuohys have adopted Michael because they wanted to recruit top talent for Ole Miss and may even have accepted money from the University of Mississippi for adopting Michael.
Although Michael seems to be adjusting to his new college life, he gets in a violent argument with a teammate, Antonio Turner, after Turner makes sexually offensive comments about Leigh Anne and Collins. Michael beats up Turner, and accidentally hurts a young child who happens to be walking nearby. Panicked, Michael runs away from the scene of the accident.
His mother, Denise, was a crack cocaine addict and a negligent parent, and Michael spent much of his early childhood searching for food and clothing, with the help of his older brothers. We use your LinkedIn profile and activity data to personalize ads and to show you more relevant ads.
