(Tom Brady's wife) Gisele Bundchen blasts Pats WRs
espn ^ | 2-6-12

Posted on 02/06/2012 11:34:21 AM PST by doug from upland

New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker was so upset over dropping a crucial pass late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 21-17 loss to the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, he nearly started crying at the podium.

Welker isn't going to get any pity from quarterback Tom Brady's wife, Gisele Bundchen, though.

After her prayers for a Patriots' championship went unanswered, Bunchen lashed out at the team's receiving corps for failing to haul in her husband's passes. While waiting for an elevator at Lucas Oil Stadium, Bundchen was being heckled by Giants fans when she spoke to people in her group.

"My husband can not f------ throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times," Bundchen said in a video captured by theinsider.com, a gossip website.

I have to give it to Brady. He was a class act in defeat. His wife, on the other hand.............

This is the kind of thing a wife should not do.

Sport shows are praising her for supporting her husband. I think she is a crass defensive jerk.

She’s probably just afraid that losers get killed here like in Brazil and wants to deflect some of the criticism.

There are a handful of upper-tier QBs in the league and Brady’s one of them. Welker is a great receiver, and while I’m sure he regrets not making the catch, it would have been a very good grab indeed. I’m sure Brady would admit the pass was a bit high and wrong shoulder. Catchable, but still.

I loved Conan O’Brien’s response to Giselle’s requests for prayers for her husband, Tom ..

Says Conan: “If I were God, I’d say “No”, I’ve done enough for him already”.

People say stupid stuff.

Unfortunately, we live in an age when the stupid stuff you just said is likely to be on the front page.

I expect politicians to control their tongue and minimize the stupid stuff they say. Disappointed wives? Supermodels? Frankly, I kind of expect them to say stupid stuff and I wouldn't make a big deal out of it.

“We had an opportunity. The ball is right there," Welker said. "I just have to make the play. It’s a play I’ve made 1,000 times. Then, in the biggest moment of my life, I don’t come up with it. It’s discouraging.”

“It hit me right in the hands," he added. "It’s a play I never drop, I always make. In the most critical situation, I let the team down.”

"It hit him on the hands...."

True enough, but only after he leaped and twisted in the air for it. IMO it was a pretty tough catch, although one he's certainly capable of.

If it’s the pass to Welker that I’m thinking of, it was a poorly thrown pass - too high and behind the receiver, so he kind of had to twist his body back to make the catch. It was catchable, but not an easy catch.

I hope Robert Kraft takes her criticism to heart and trades Wes Welker and Rob Gronkowski to the Giants. Who needs those losers, eh Gisele? I’m sure Kraft will welcome the football know-how of a Brazilian supermodel.

Add to that, most pro models are extremely thin, and often are not all that attracive in person. The camera adds weight so they have to be near anorexic, and likewise their stark facial features are not always as beautiful in person as they appear in photos.

I’m just guessing Brady does not like what she said. He’s extremely disciplined.

IMHO Gisele is the classic embarrassing wife. She didn’t have the common sense, or the class, to realize a crowd of Giants fans harrassing her after the big game was not a group she needed to respond to, and then on top of it she responded by backbiting her husband’s teammates.

Brett Favre did.

What a sweetheart!

If she’s this brutal to Brady’s teammates when they falter, imagine how sweet she’ll be to Tom when his skills decline, (and they will).

Without Welker, the Patriots aren’t in the Super Bowl. Football is a team game, you win as a team, you lose as a team.

"My husband can not f------ throw the ball

She could have stopped right there. The three big passes...the potential game-changing passes that were dropped by Welker, Hernandez and Branch were not thrown to the optimal spot where a receiver can easily make the catch. All three were thrown behind the receiver.

Heck, if Welker caught his ball, the game is essentially over at that point and he knew it.

I guess Brady’s wife did not see Tom’s first offensive play of the game for the Patriots where he caused a two point safety. Also, he threw a bad pass that was intercepted. Many of the best players make mistakes and it seems that they should accept that.

The Patriots missed a couple of opportunities to recover fumbles as well.

New York made fewer mistakes and came out on top.

I saw the video. Much ado about nothing. She was talking to a friend and some kind of powerful mic picked up her comment. You have to work to hear it. She didn’t scream it out across a room. I’m from Boston but still not a giant Pats or Brady fan, but the growing bitterness and envy towards these two is totally uncalled for.

What this photo does not show is that Welker was running to his left, and had to twist his body for the pass that was clearly behind him.
