New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez summarized the team's offensive ineptitude during organized team activities on Wednesday, with head coach Rex Ryan calling his performance "unacceptable."

Sanchez was picked off three times in his first 11 passes during practice. Ryan also said Sanchez had good throws, but must cut down on turnovers. During his past 31 starts, Sanchez has turned the ball over 52 times.

“This is OTAs and things, but yeah, that’s going to be the pressure that we’re putting on him,” Ryan said to the New York Daily News. “He did a lot of great things. It’s not that you try to cover up the fact you had some bad plays — no, no, no you flat tell him. We can’t have these and all that type of stuff. He knows.”
Rookie Geno Smith fared no better Wednesday, finishing 3-for-10 with one interception in 14 snaps.
