He might be what saves our passing game this year - assuming he stays healthy.
As an aside, I was sitting next to a guy at the game yesterday who was in LOVE with Schilens. He mentioned something about being a Raiders fan (not sure if he was primarily a Jets fan, but I didn't press the issue) and was absolutely in love with the guy. While I kept asking him if he was Schilens' Mom, I didn't ask him if he goes by 9175. What a missed opportunity.
Aside from the horrible drop of the short kick off. He also ran a disgustingly bad pattern in the endzone a few games back.
You know we are reaching when we extol the virtues of jags like Schilens and Hill. to be fair Schilens has not been totally awful but he is certainly more like a number 4 guy on most teams.
