Back when Rob Ryan was coaching the New England Patriots, he looked more like a fictional relief pitcher than his identical twin, Rex Ryan.
The current New Orleans Saints’ defensive coordinator looked nearly identical to Kenny Powers of Eastbound & Down during his time in New England. Ryan was the Patriots’ linebackers coach from 2000-2003, so there’s really no excuse for his look straight out of 1993.
Powers, we mean Ryan is returning to New England to coach the Saints on Sunday, so his picture was featured in the Patriots’ Gameday program.
Take a look at Ryan and Powers in the photos below. Can you tell the difference?
OK fine. Correction: Rob Ryan was Kenny Powers when he was the linebackers coach in New England. http://t.co/GNSBM2CB61— Doug Kyed (@DougKyedNESN) October 13, 2013
