Longtime New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has a reputation for being a hard-nosed coach, something that has prevented him from becoming a popular figure across the NFL.
However, he was recently spotted inside an Italian restaurant.
Belichick is a Marzilli’s guy (Fall River. Best Italian subs in the world)! Smartest man there is. Also looking slim as hell. pic.twitter.com/FVGyk1Y17x

The individual who posted his picture on Twitter pointed out how slim Belichick looked.
It has caused some fans to not believe it was actually Belichick who was at that restaurant.
People in the Riv not believing it was him saying he’s too skinny…

Others commented on his choice of restaurant and offered their opinions on other Italian spots in the area.
Marcucci’s is better unfortunately, tough look there for Bill 👀

Cardonas, formerly Romas, in Saratoga have the best Italian, no debate whatsoever.

Belichick is coming off a tough season, as his Patriots went just 8-9 and narrowly missed out on making the playoffs.
It was thought coming into this year that Mac Jones, who was in his second season, was definitely their franchise quarterback of the future, but now people are being forced to rethink that opinion.
Across the board, his number fell compared to the 2021 campaign when he made the Pro Bowl as a rookie and was second in the Offensive Rookie of the Year balloting behind Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase.
When Jones was sidelined for three games with a sprained ankle in October, rookie Bailey Zappe filled in and played well, and for a minute, some wondered if the Patriots would be better off with him under center full-time.
Adding another high-level skill player or two would greatly help Belichick’s squad be more competitive in 2023 and perhaps aid Jones’ development.
He is clearly learning how hard it is to rebuild after losing arguably the greatest QB in NFL history.NEXT: NFL Insider Reveals Bill Belichick's Biggest Gripe About Mac Jones
