The entire New York Jets organization is doing push-ups for penalties — from the players to the owner.

Coach Rex Ryan is making his players and coaches drop and give him 10 for each penalty they commit in practice in an effort to cut down on mental mistakes in games.

When the team hit the grass after a penalty Wednesday, owner Woody Johnson and general manager Mike Tannenbaum joined in. Johnson told Matt Higgins, the team's executive vice president for business operations, that the entire organization should join for team unity.

Higgins says that on Thursday, after the Jets committed three penalties, about 60 staff members gathered and did push-ups — something that will continue through the season.

ESPNNewYork.com first reported the organization-wide push-ups.
