    Defense looked great against the Chiefs. (OK so the Chiefs are really awful, but so what)

    4 sacks, 3 INT's, and a blocked punt for a TD.
    Dobbins played good as well.

    Let's keep it going against the Raiders this week. :tup:

    Today's win was nice for entertainment purposes. Beating up on a 1-5 team is not impressive.

    Washington will regret turning down a contract extension

    Welcome to lesson No. 1 why 5-foot-8, 195-pound backup running backs should think long and hard about turning down solid contract extensions. Leon Washington(notes) reportedly did just that in the offseason, shunning a deal that reportedly would have averaged $5 million per season with a modest amount of guaranteed money ($5 million to $8 million) and an injury clause that would have netted him another $5 million. Washington thought he was worth more on the open market, the New York Jets balked, choosing instead to head into the final year of his deal this season. Now he’ll likely spend the next year (or two or three) regretting that decision, by way of what is sounding like a pretty gruesome broken leg suffered against the Oakland Raiders.
    I never have a problem with a player seeking his fair value, particularly in a game that uses guys up and then moves on with little remorse. But I also never thought Washington had a good handle on his value. A league source said in the preseason that Washington had sought a contract on the fringes of the 15 most-lucrative running back deals in play this season, and frankly, that’s wildly out of whack for his actual production.
    Washington was banking on several points of leverage. First, the natural assumption in his camp was that starter Thomas Jones(notes), who turned 31 in August, wasn’t far from hitting the wall that many starters at the position encounter when they are 30. So in essence, Washington was negotiating from a stance that he would be the starter sooner rather than later, and thus deserved starter money. Second, Washington’s agent, Alvin Keels, was pushing that his client had offered more production per touch than almost any other Jets player.
    But both of those stances were, at best, a matter of vantage point. While Jones is near the setting sun of his career, he remains one of the league’s physical wonders, and actually tuned his physique over the last few seasons to combat the onset of age. The results have been hard to argue against, as he has continued to play the best football of his career, while also being very well suited for the Jets’ offensive style. And while Washington has been unquestionably valuable, his body of work was too limited to suggest he could be a centerpiece running back, let alone continue to consistently produce at the same high level over a 20-25 touch load in a 16-game season.
    At the end of the day, Washington is a spectacular change-of-pace back who has a physical frame that almost never holds up well as an every-down player. Eventually, the smallish back breaks down with injury. And even in the free-agent market, every other NFL team would have had those same concerns, and likely refused to offer the top-level running back deal Washington wanted. So the Jets held their ground on his contract demands and stuck with a long-established trend, and in an unfortunate turn, they were right about possible injury concerns. And while they will stick with Washington and hope for the best long term, the cruel reality is that he had a pretty fair deal on the table and didn’t take it. Now his long-term value will be more of a question than ever.
