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 can't believe Pats dropped so many passes

1.  She's right.
2.  She should shut her mouth about it.
3.  Either that's a bad photo of her, or I don't know why she's a supermodel.

Gisele, I guess you could not see that Brady was throwing balls behind wide open receivers

Gisele can't believe Pats dropped so many passes

I'm not sure why so many people think Giselle is so attractive.  Her face is hideous.  If you want to see some attractive young ladies, watch tennis!

Awww isn't that nice.  Two perfect-looking people get together and look so nice in trendy clothes.  They'll have such cute babies, I bet!  God she's annoying.  If Brady weren't so vapid himself, he'd be so sick of having to talk, listen to that.  Unless her ankles are pinned behind her ears, I imagine she's very annoying.

Gisele can't believe Pats dropped so many passes

There is more and more of an invasion of privacy with all of the smart phones around.  She was making the statement to a companion right next to her not to the fan who was heckling her.  It is like the private email that was published last week.  I wish that someone would publish what these idiot reporters say in private.

I think the fact that Giselle stepped up and defended Brady like that was smoking hot.  You could only imagine what that outburst sounded like with her accent.  Good for her!

This is a NON story... Gisele was caught up in the emotion and didn't intend to throw any of Toms teamates under the bus...common, I was watching the game and actually saw a few passes that were a little of target and a few more that should have been caught... I am a HUGE Patriot fan and tip my hat to the Giants... They won the game this day on the field. These 2 teams have a history in recent years of playing close games.. A few missed opportunities and a couple of nice catches (Mario Manningham... Go Blue...) is the difference between a win and a loss.

Gisele needs to model herself after Mrs. Kraft (God rest her soul); otherwise, as she gets older she'll lose her outer beauty and have nothing.

Just like the celebs that have never done anything. Think folks, a model or actor gets told what to do and what lines to read for there work. When they do speak it's usually offensive or critical of a field they don't know anything about. It doesn't take a genius to know the Pats receivers dropped some balls, but they did it letting it all hang out. Seems like the people in here field of work are beyond being criticized for their "work". Gee folks, getting doused with makeup, looking like a statue takes brains. I think not. Just look at the pic included in the article.

Hahaha this made me laugh so hard. Sure this isn't really "news," but it's pretty darn funny. Go get 'em, Gisele!
