The concept of Rex Ryan playing a Bill Belichick fan in a movie is one that most folks -- particularly those in New York and Boston -- might find a tad disturbing. Belichick, though, admitted he might be entertained by it. "Should be interesting," he told reporters on Wednesday. "Yeah, that's a new one." Belichick said he hadn't previously heard about the movie, which features Ryan owning a Belichick bobblehead and poster in his office.
