Detroit Lions WR Chaz Schilens got a massive tiger tattoo on his back

Chaz-Schilens-tiger-back-tattoo

Detroit Lions wide receiver Chaz Schilens recently got a massive tattoo on his back, and the only things missing are Mowgli and Baloo. We have to assume he was going for a “The Jungle Book” theme, because he opted for a tiger over a lion and we hope he’s not showing support for the Cincinnati Bengals.

According to Paula Pasche of The Oakland Press, the tattoo took 24 hours total to complete and had Schilens in the tattoo parlor on three separate occasions. While I don’t really understand the significance of the jungle-themed ink, I suppose it’s a good thing that the design isn’t nearly as horrifying as this NBA player’s huge back tattoo. That’s pretty much the only positive I can say about Schilens’ new addition.

Chaz Schilens upset with Jets fans for Tim Tebow chants during ‘humiliating’ loss

New York Jets wide receiver Chaz Schilens admits the team’s 30-9 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday was “humiliating,” but he’s upset with the fans who began chanting for Tim Tebow to replace Mark Sanchez at quarterback.

“That chant is BS… I think the fans are out of place,” Schilens said after the game, per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “They’re pissed. They have a right to be pissed.”

Schilens backed Sanchez as the team’s starter, saying “Mark’s the QB.” He also seemed to pin some of the blame on the Jets offensive line.

“He was under a lot of pressure, that’s all I have to say,” Schilens said, via Kimberley A. Martin of Newsday.

The Jets hardly had anything going on Sunday. They were down 20-0 at halftime and 27-3 after three quarters. Sanchez was sacked four times and finished 28/54 for 283 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. Most of his stats came on two fourth quarter drives, including one that culminated in a touchdown pass to Schilens.

Did the team getting blown out lead head coach Rex Ryan to consider pulling Sanchez for Tebow?

“I just never thought it was the time to do it. Mark’s our QB,” Ryan said.

The Jets may have many offensive skill players injured, but maybe they need to consider going to Tebow. After losing 4 of their last 5 to go 3-5 on the season, how much worse could things get with Tebow at quarterback? Perhaps it’s time to find out.

Chaz Schilens on Warren Sapp: Everyone on the Raiders Thinks He’s a Joke

Warren Sapp has made a living off trash talking. He did it during his playing career for the Bucs and Raiders, and he’s doing it now as a broadcaster. He’s made explosive comments about LeBron James and Keyshawn Johnson and received the type of attention he was seeking. But Raiders receiver Chaz Schilens sees right through the act, and so do his teammates.

“Warren Sapp is a fool,” Schilens said, apparently bothered by Sapp’s disrespect of the Raiders. “That dude is stupid. He played for the Raiders 20 years ago, no one cares what he says, nobody likes him, he’s a joke … Everyone on this team thinks he’s a joke. So, he can make his predictions next week, and we’ll watch ‘em and we’ll go out and win. … That’s about it.”

Sapp had his feelings hurt and went on the offensive. He responded via his Twitter account.
