Bill Belichick Says He’s Learning ‘A New Button Or A New Thing To Click On’ Each Day Leading Up To Virtual NFL Draft
This year’s NFL Draft will take place virtually away from team facilities thanks to the big cancel. While on the surface it seems simple to hold the draft via webcam and having teams select players virtually, it may be easier for some coaches to wrap their heads around the concept than others.
Bill Belichick spoke with the media on Monday for the first time since Tom Brady signed with the Buccaneers. In typical Belichick fashion, he didn’t want to talk about what has happened in the past and instead focus on the future, which of course includes next week’s virtual NFL Draft.
The six-time Super Bowl-winning coach was more than happy to brag about the fact that he’s been learning new buttons and things to click on his computer screen.
We now live in a world where both Bill Belichick is learning how to use a computer and Nick Saban has his own email address. It truly is quite the time to be alive. There is no telling what these two football geniuses are going to come up with thanks to their new projects.
There were reports last week that there was growing concern among various coaches and NFL front office folks about actually having a virtual draft. On top of actually learning the system, or figuring out what certain buttons on a computer do like Belichick, there were concerns about hacking as well as team’s tech professionals having to enter people’s homes to install the software and get everything set and ready to go.
It’s unknown whether or not Belichick is concerned about a person coming into his house during the pandemic, but Pats fans don’t need to worry about that, they just need to worry about him figuring out the correct buttons to hit and things to click on the screen.
Welcome to the Internet, Mr. Belichick, it’s a terrible place.
