Rex Ryan, Geno Smith and Jets have plenty of work to do after ugly loss to Patriots

Rex Ryan says there's "frustration" over his New York Jets turning the ball over four times and not being able to pull out a victory over the New England Patriots.

Ryan also pointed to the "way too many" dropped passes — at least six of them — in the Jets' 13-10 loss on Thursday night. Rookie quarterback Geno Smith also threw three fourth-quarter interceptions, but Ryan says in a conference call Friday that he was impressed by the fact Smith showed poise throughout a rough performance.

Ryan says Nick Mangold's dive at Aqib Talib's legs near the sideline that set off a skirmish at the end of the game wasn't intentional. Mangold and fellow offensive linemen Willie Colon and D'Brickashaw Ferguson — both ejected — could face league discipline.
