Schilens fed up with Sapp's criticism of 6-4 Raiders

Raiders wide receiver Chaz Schilens apparently isn't a fan of Warren Sapp, our NFL Network colleague.

"Warren Sapp is a fool," Schilens told the San Francisco Chronicle. "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."

With the Raiders 6-4 and in first place in the AFC West, what possibly could make Schilens so upset these days? Apparently, it's a lack of respect from the media. And Sapp, who played his final four NFL seasons in Oakland (2004-07), is leading the barrage of shots on the Silver and Black -- at least to Schilens he is.

Somebody must have informed Sapp of Schilens' words, because @QBKILLA took to Twitter in response.

"Ok Just Woke Up From My Tuesday Slumber. Who's Chaz Schilens ?? Oh Wasn't He Just On DWTS? Did He Win??", Sapp tweeted.

Chaz Schilens, Chaz Bono. Ahhh, we get it!

Then there was this: "My Bad! I Looked Ole Chaz Up, 8 & 6 Starts His 1st Two Yrs. ONE Start In Last 2yrs, Better Start a Career Before Its Over! #BiggerFishToFry"

Followed up by this: "And someone tell Chaz I left High School 20yrs ago! And in my 4th year I had Pineapple in my Diet!

We didn't understand the pineapple reference, either, until Sapp clarified its meaning to one of his followers.

"That's a Pro-Bowl! Walking In Pineapple Fields in Hawaii #PickYourOwn & Take It Home! #OgStatus"

We're sort of at a loss on this war of words and characters. Any thoughts?
