Sanchez threw three interceptions in his 11 passes during today’s OTAs, and Ryan told reporters afterward that he considers that “unacceptable.” Jets coach Rex Ryan says quarterback Mark Sanchez made too many mistakes at today’s Organized Team Activities, and he simply must improve. Sanchez threw three interceptions during 11-on-11 drills Wednesday, prompting Coach Rex Ryan to say that he was “absolutely” dissatisfied and to emphasize that ball security would be a factor in determining the Jets’ starter. On Wednesday, the first day of organized team activities that was open to the news media, Sanchez and Smith took a majority of the snaps at quarterback, and they threw to a receiving corps that lacked Santonio Holmes, Stephen Hill, Clyde Gates and Jordan White, who were unavailable because of injuries. Saying afterward that he was pleased with “subtle improvements,” Smith did not look particularly sharp, though his lone turnover an interception by Garrett McIntyre that might have touched the ground bounced off the receiver’s hands on a screen pass.
