(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.

Football is a hard game. Three people I try not to criticize:

1) WRs who do their best to make difficult catches, and who succeed with great regularity, but do not succeed 100% of the time.
2) QBs who do their best to make great passes, and who succeed with great regularity, but do not succeed 100% of the time.
3) Disappointed wives who were looking forward to a great day for their husband.

Not to mention throwing a deep ball to a lame TE whose injury let a linebacker jump higher than him and intercept a poorly thrown ball.

Gisele needs to shut up.

Bill Belichick should have been banned from the NFL.

Didn't Belichick's "waterboy" get fired
as the Broncos head coach for cheating ?

Something about acorns and trees.

The WRs didn't throw the intentional grounding pass from the end zone.

Without giving those 2 points to the Giants the Pats could have won with a FG.

The best team won!

“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,”

This country needs to get up out of the sewer it’s been wallowing in.

I have reached the saturation point with hearing and seeing coarse, loudmouth and indecent people.

The conduct of women in public life is truly offensive and has reached an all time low

She’s probably not the one to be saying that. That said, what really killed them wasn’t Welker, it was those other two guys on the last drive. One or both of those guys pull it in, and maybe the Pats win.

If Welker makes a tough but very makeable catch Tom Brady wins and is MVP.
In 2008 If Asante Samuel makes tough but very makeable interception. Again Tom Brady is MVP.
Conversley if Giants reciever dosen’t make tremndous catch he Eli nobody.
In 2008 if Tyree dosen’t make a catch off his helmet (last catch he made in the NFL) Eli is nobody.

Dedicating the game to the owner’s deceased wife or whatever she was prior to the game was a form of hubris and did not appear to recognize the fact that there was another team on the field which was also allowed to compete for the championship. Everybody involved in the Patriots organization shares the responsibility for that.

The guy (Welker) was 110% totally off balance and out of position to catch that ball. I mean, Jesus or the archangel Michael might have caught it but that’s about what it would have taken.

I think it’s bizarre for her to think God should be bothered with helping Tom Brady win a stupid game...if He were going to intervene it would have to be for so many are so much more deserving.

I’m sure Brady would admit the pass was a bit high and wrong shoulder.

Yeah, right.

As far as Tom Brady is concerned, Tom Brady is never at fault. The receiver dropped the ball. There was interference that wasn't called. A receiver ran the wrong route. Whatever... as long as something went wrong, it was someone else's fault.

Of course, anything the goes right is all because of Brady.

That pretty much sums it up nicely; thanks. I’m sure she was emotional and showing in a weird way support for her husband. Would have been nice to have done it w/out the obcenities.

>>>Re: “...3 before, 0 since” ...you honestly think they won the 3 prior SBs because of this? Wow.<<<

Do you honestly think stealing the other team’s signals had nothing to do with their success?

Obviously the NFL took it pretty seriously fining Belicheat $500K and stripping a 1st round draft pick.

Belichick and Brady are about as legit as Barry Bonds and Mark McGuire. I think most NFL fans put an asterisk next to the Cheatriots SB “wins”.

Which is why every time he makes a bad throw on 3rd down or gets picked off, the next thing I see is him yelling at the receiver who made the “mistake”.

Press conferences after the game is where spin happens. The field and sidelines is where reality is.

Forgive my naivete but how do you cheat at professional football? I know you can not get called on some things (holding, pass interference etc) if the ref misses it.

I saw the chart further down in the thread showing all the cheating of the various teams.

what is it exactly? I am being sincere in this question!

What’s wrong is football is a team sport. You don’t point fingers at your teammates, you point them at yourself.

Welker pointed the finger at himself, saying he should have caught it.

Brady pointed the finger at himself, saying he also made mistakes during the game as well.

That’s the tradition, and it’s considered good sportsmanship to handle mistakes this way.

Ragging on your teammates is considered poor sportsmanship at every level. Brady’s wife broke this unwritten rule. A better response from her would have been something like “I know Tom prepared hard and gave it his all in the game and I’m proud of him; sometimes though, things just don’t go your way.”

Tom Brady has given millions of dollars of his money to the sick poor and needy.
He has made these millions from winning these sports games.
The email was hacked to boot, and wasn’t made for public consumption.
Tom Brady has been an outstanding representive of the Patriots on and off the field.

Well I won’t dispute the ‘spin’ part, but I see discussions between QBs and recievers for every team, and yes, sometimes heated. Missed routes/reads have to be discussed. Emotions bubbling over in the heat of battle...so what? I’ve NEVER seen Brady throw another player under the bus, and neither have you.

Everyone has a moment they will never forget

I am guessing Scott Norwood’s kick wide right (that would have won superbowl 25) is one I’ll never forget.

He made those 100 times - he was the Bill’s high scorer for the year... You knew the game was in the bag! (and OMG what a game it was !!!!!!)

and then....

(..excuse me I have to go get a tissue...)

Are we sure that the heckler was a Giants fan? I mean, a true blue G-men fan?

I mean, couldn’t it have been an pi$$ed off, drunk & angry Patriots fan doing the heckling? As a whole, I don’t think I’ve ever seen fans who are more down-to-earth, patriotic and loyal than Giants fan, and I’ve been one since the mid-70s.

Giants fans don’t boo our own team (like Philly). We don’t boo during the National Anthem, just because someone’s face appears up on the big screens (49ers). I’ve always been proud to be among Giants fans, and I wonder who it really was who shouted at Mrs. Bundchen-Brady. Maybe it was also someone without a dog in the fight, who attended the Superbowl, and decided to root against the Patriots. A lot of people don’t care for the (some might say over-) confidence displayed by the Patriots, and Gisele has not exactly been endeared by the public at large.

Brady lost the game with his safety. Would the situation been different with the Pats having the ball with 57 seconds left and needing only a field goal to win? I think so.

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 thought the same thing. Welker was pretty amazing the rest of the game...he didn't make that last difficult catch form a poor throw.

I don't think it is wise for Brady's wife to start pointing fingers.

If her hubby had simply ran five feet to his right while he was in the end zone (before throwing the ball), there wouldn't have been a intentional grounding, thus there wouldn't have been a safety. And all thing being equal, the Pats would have only had to move the ball to the 35 yard line at the end, not make a touchdown. World of difference.

I think Brady lost the game for the Pats because of a mental error.
