07:02 AM ET 05.23 | So far, so not good for Rex Ryan and Gang Green. Some defensive formations were not in the playbook, and there were plenty of false starts. But the most aggravating were the turnovers, a point of emphasis for the Jets each of the last two seasons. Mark Sanchez tossed three interceptions today. Geno Smith added another. "Today, obviously, I was not happy about how many times we turned the ball over -- four interceptions and a fumble, I believe," Ryan said. ... "You can do 90 percent really good things. But if you do 10 percent poor things you're going to get beat in this league. And those are the things we have to get better at, protecting the football over anything else. Today was a disappointment as far as that's concerned."

Geno Smith is a Chip off The Old Block, he fits Right IN!!!!!!!

Look on the bright side, Rex. Zero buttfumbles. You're making progress.

Sounds like a visit to the toilet...

A big steaming pile of Ryan.

I can already hear the crowd chanting "Ge-no! Ge-no! Ge-no!"

Give them time .....its very early in the new season.

We need a covert look at Rex's tattoo before we know who will quarterback the Jets in Week 1.

Four interceptions by Sanchez... That's about 1 short of his average per game.

How is this news? It is a practice in May. It does not not matter. Wait, I know there has to be filler "news" for T&R.

Don't say that to Joe Namath.

Amazing.....the only team in the NFL that gets put under a microscope on their OTA' s....who gives a flying ....geez

And all this is a surprise to whom, exactly? The Jets appear to have made some important coaching and roster decisions based more on economics than on rebuilding to win, so they'll just have to struggle through until they're out from under those questionable contracts and can replace key players (and coaches). They can still release Sanchez but they haven't shown any inclination to do so as of yet.

this makes my day...first thing some j-e-s-t bashing tonight a rags sweep, good day for boston sports

Why is Ryan surprised. With Sanchez imploding and Geno Smith ... well, being Geno Smith ... I don't see how this is a shock.

May 23, 2013  09:07 AM ET

Rex, you'll definitely get beat if you throw interceptions on 10% of your passes

May 23, 2013  09:08 AM ET

Jeesh coach, you are looking at the negative. You should be telling the press how impressed you were with your defense. Interceptions, take aways and all that. The half full glass.

It's not easy to say this, but Sanchez could still be the best QB on the roster. David Garrard would have been a better transitional quarterback as they get Geno ready, but now even that option has evaporated.

If they cut Sanchez, they're rolling the dice and gambling with Smith. Who knows?

Rex drank what was left in the glass and went back to the bar for a refill.
