In general, Tom Brady leads a charmed life. He's an NFL quarterback, three-time Super Bowl champ, UGG spokesman -- and the cherry on top -- he's married to supermodel Gisele Bündchen. Yes, the Patriots fell to the Giants Sunday night in Super Bowl XLVI, and yes Brady was distraught by the outcome, but in the scheme of things, it won't define his career.

Of course, the criticism in the hours after the loss were swift and, well, critical. Brady was accused of a horrible performance even though he started 20 of 24, broke Joe Montana's Super Bowl completion record in the process, then suffered a Justin Tuck sack that changed everything. He finished the night 7 of 17 and a slightly off-target throw to Wes Welker with four minutes to go ultimately proved to be the difference.

Gisele, who was at the game, had to endure jeers and taunts from Giants fans as she left her suite at Lucas Oil Stadium.

“Eli rules!” screamed one fan. “Eli owns your husband!” yelled another.

Gisele's response?

“You (have) to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball,” she snapped back, according to CBS New York. “My husband cannot (bleeping) throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”

Welker took full responsibility for not coming down with a Brady throw that was also high and behind him.

"The ball is right there," Welker said when asked if he was looking for it on the other shoulder. "I've just got to make the play. It's a play I've made a thousand times in practice and everything else. It comes to the biggest moment of my life and I don't come up with it. It's discouraging."

Brady, for his part, didn't waver in his support of Welker.

"Wes was running down the field and it looked like they messed the coverage up a little bit and I threw it to him," said Brady. "(Welker) went up to try and make it, as he always does, and we just couldn't connect. He's a hell of a player. I'll keep throwing the ball to him for as long as I possible can. He's a phenomenal player and teammate and I love that guy."

Apparently, a TMZ source says that Brady's teammates are "disappointed" and feel betrayed by Gisele's comments.

Gisele knows all about catching balls.  she is an expert. Sure she tried to make hubby feel a whole lot better after the long ride home.

catch the ball, catch the ball, catch the ball.  Guess what Gisele, your hubby Tom and all the Patriots would not have even made it to the SB if Lee Evans could catch a ball.  Count your blessings

she probably does have someone to make Tom his sandwhiches, but had she been making the after game sandwhiches, like she should have been, her quote is never uttered.  All wives should learn from the mistake Gisele made, stay in the kitchen until you are asked to bring the sandwhiches, this way you will not utter anything that may break man code and make you look ridiculous.

The Patriots will be in the Super Bowl again next year.  There defense is young and pieced together with what they got.  They have a great draft coming up.  They have two first round picks this year and they will use them on defense.  I have a feeling they will get another WR to help with the weak core they have now.  Other than the two TEs and Welker (who is getting old), they have nothing.  There RB position is weak too.  Brady did a great job this season with what he had to work with.  Patriots and Lions in Super Bowl XLVII.

people are really responding to this idiotic topic?  what happened to sports?  we now care what the wife of the qb thinks.  embarassing.  im just glad the ex jets didnt get cheap rings.  We can start it all up again next year.  And to the guy who turned the whole story about the ravens, there is no way  they are giving up on Flacco....keep dreaming, just like the jets arent giving up on Sanchez.  There was a time Giants fans boo'd Eli off the field when he was in his first few  seasons.
