Gisele can't believe Pats dropped so many passes

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.

It was a catchable throw. Period. Welker even said he's made the catch over and over again in practice. Again, it went right through his hands. Ask any reciever or any reciever coach and they'll tell you that if it touched your hands, it should be caught. No one is throwing him under the bus for the entire loss, just that he should have made this paticular catch, that's all.

I Agree that any ball that hits a receiver's hands is potentially catchable, however, if Brady would have thrown the ball in the direction that Welker was running, it would have been an easy catch. Disagree with the Bus, Brady mentioned it last night and Giselebomb indicated the same, which is the title of this thread?

I guess Gisele didn't drink the Patriots' Kool-aid about what to say publicly. She's right...but she shoudn't have said it! Uh-oh

My main take away from this whole story are the idiotic so called fans who feel it's OK to heckle the spouse of a player. Real classy.

Weker was running right, Brady threw the ball left. It was a bad pass. Welker was wide open.

I will agree, the Giants were the better team, they had recievers that could catch.

This was a 60 minute game, correct?  This wasn't a sudden-death catch or lose proposition, correct? Why the focus on one Brady-to-Welker pass that was incomplete?  Brady's wife is only defending her hubby, but shouldn't diss his teammates, even if she is stating the obvious.

Look, New England had many chances to win this game, but were simply beaten by the better New York Giants.  If we want to get rewally picky about one play, if Brady had not had g given up ht e 2 point safety, all thinmgs being equal, a last minutes field goal would have won the Patriots the Super Bowl.

AND CAN WE PLEASE GET RID OF THESE BLOODY ROMAN NUMERALS?????!!!!!
