    Moderator's note: This thread is pointless. Go to post #5 for the photo.

    ...

    Take a look at him in the photo from the homepage, Boston article titled "Whats the deal Patriots". It looks like a cigarette in his hand with what appears to be an ashtray partly showing behind the water bottle in front of him. Am I seeing things?

    Re: Does BB smoke cigarettes?

    Doesn't look like it to me, looks like he is holding a pen, and I don't see an ashtray anywhere.

    Re: Does BB smoke cigarettes?

    I think it's hard to mix up a cigarette and ashtray with...

    ...a PEN in his right hand and a video REMOTE CONTROL in his left hand (he has a play diagramming pad/template on his desk, and is presumably watching tape on his laptop/monitor through Pinnacle Systems' GameAnalysis software), along with a computer MOUSE behind the water bottle.

    Re: Does BB smoke cigarettes?

    I think it looks like a pen too. More importantly, why does the label on the yellow videotape read "Eagles walkthrough"?

    Just kidding.

    The brown thing partly underneath his arm. Looks like it could be an ashtray.

    Re: Does BB [NOT] smoke cigarettes?

    And besides, since when is it legal to smoke in a workplace?

    This is one of the stupidest posts I've ever read on this board.

    Re: Does BB smoke cigarettes?

    That's a freaking remote control.

    Just like this one Cory Undlin (now a Browns assistant coach) was holding for 3 Games to Glory III in 2004:

    [​IMG]

    His laptop is set to this Pinnacle Systems GameAnaylsis software:

    [​IMG]

    He is writing on this play diagramming pad, just as now-LBs coach Matt Patricia was in 3GTGIII:

    [​IMG]

    These aren't the 1960s or 1970s. Coaches don't sit at their desks and smoke.

    Re: Does BB [NOT] smoke cigarettes?

    The stupidest part I agree with.

    But do you honestly believe that if BB was a smoker (like the Colts O coordinator used to be) that he'd give a crap about the 'no smoking in the workplace/public buildings' policies? Kraft would probably install a special ventilation system for him.

    Belichick should at least put away those Charger's practice tapes in the bottom left before letting the media take this shot.

    I actually think it does look like a cig in one hand and the ashtray on the table.

    I quit smoking almost 6 months ago via hypnosis.

    If the intern reading this thread wants the guys number to pass along to coach, PM me.

    Re: Does BB smoke cigarettes?

    I get more and more disappointed with this board when I see threads like this.

    Seriously.........

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

    You post a thread asking if BB smokes cigarettes? Are you a gossip columnist? Who TF cares? I wouldn't care if he had a bottle of Jack Daniels beside him and I'm an AA guy myself. This is America, is it not?

    Next thing you know, someone will post a thread asking if that's Belichik's real hair or is it a weave!:rolleyes:

    P.S. Maybe you should ask yourself, "If it is a cigarette, where's the smoke?" duh!

    Re: Does BB smoke cigarettes?

    This is the funniest thread I've read in a while on here.

    Though it appears most of you are getting more enraged than entertained here.

    I should have paid more attention to the Mod's note. He/she was spot-on!

    So on a somewhat more relevant note: can someone please tell me why the elite franchise in all of sports is still using videotapes?

    I'm sure they keep the tapes for archiving purposes (Dimitroff, in his pre-draft interview with Patriots All-Access last season, showed the camera around one of the team's videotape storage rooms for draft prospects).

    But whatever Bill is watching on his laptop is just digital video that's probably stored on some huge server somewhere (I know EMC just sponsored the Pats last year). It probably first passes through the video department, which edits and cuts it, etc., then can be accessed through the server -- definitely by Monday morning after a game day.

    Here is a great article Reiss wrote in 2006 about the team's weekly process involving game tape, etc.:

    That's not a cigarette or a pen people. Obviously it's a big fat joint.
