The above left image of Rob Ryan, Patriots linebacker coach from 2000-2003, was featured in New England's game day program in anticipation of the Saints defensive coordinator's return to Foxborough. As Doug Kyed points out, it's nearly impossible to tell him apart from Kenny Powers, the surly, washed-up protagonist of Eastbound & Down.

We can only hope that life will imitate art, and that we will one day be treated to Rob Ryan's vulgar sports-talk commentary.
