Jets owner Woody Johnson does 'penalty' pushups at practice

On Monday, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan reinstituted the policy of the entire team doing 10 push-ups every time a penalty is committed in practice with the offending player standing and watching. And that included everyone who was there — no matter what your title.

The coach stuck to his guns and even members of the organization standing on the sidelines felt the wrath of Rex, including team owner Woody Johnson, team president Neil Glat and general manager John Idzik — who all got down and did 10.

Ryan brought back his 2010 push-up policy after the Jets were flagged 20 times in their 27-20 win over the Bills last Sunday. 

According to Ryan, the team did 30 push-ups — 10 for each for three infractions. The Jets lead the league with 34 penalties.

“We’re 32nd in the league, probably closer to 33rd if that was possible,” Ryan said. “It’s just not us. That is not who we are. We’re trying to fix it and we will fix it.”
