Entering Week 9 of the 2008 campaign, Schilens was named a starter, playing opposite Javon Walker.

Chaz broke the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot in August, 2009, but returned to action midway through the season and caught the game winning touchdown in an upset in Week 15 over the rival Denver Broncos.
