Schilens was not brought back by the Jets and signed a one-year deal with the Lions before the start of this year's training camp. Schilens was asked about why things did not work out with the receiver-needy Jets.Schilens did not pull any punches, reports Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.
"For me there?" Schilens said. "Really, when it came down to it, I kind of felt like they were looking for scapegoats and besides everyone except for, you know, maybe the quarterback position, and it was what it was. When free agency didnít start off right away, I just kind of understood what it was and part of the business."When asked what Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez could do to win back the fan base, Schilens, who is fighting for a roster spot in Detroit, answered the question by not answering the question.
"Nothing good to say, so Iím not going to say nothing."
