It is astonishing how well men wear when they think of no one but themselves.
- Bulwer-Lytton, English Novelist and Poet (1803-1873)
You have to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball,” she said angrily to those around her.
“My husband cannot f–king throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”

That would be a pretty good sports take if she wasn’t half of the multinational corporation that is Gisele and Brady. I get that she’s upset and sticking up for her man after a tough loss, but surely she’s seen enough post-game interviews to know that 100 times out of 100 times, a player will never blame their teammates no matter how well he might have played or how poorly they might have played. You just don’t do that and you certainly don’t need your wife out there spouting off and laying the blame on your teammates for you.
I get that it must have been frustrating for her to have to watch the dropped balls (three by my count, one big drop by Welker that would have brought them close to going up by two score late in the game and two more drops the final drive) but you just don’t call out your husband’s fellow teammates, because they have to be there for him next year, they have to be there for him to pick him up when he’s not having his best game and they’re the ones who have to have his back when the other team is trying to rip his head off.
Definitely a tough loss for Brady, a guy who has gone from a perfect 3-0 to 3-2 now in Super Bowls, but somehow I think that two supermodels headed for a million dollar vacation can find a way to get over it.
