Tom Brady's wife Gisele Bundchen calls it - the Pats WRs blew it
"You [need] to catch the ball when you're supposed to catch the ball," she is heard saying. "My husband cannot [expletive] throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times."
Although Gisele mentioned no names, she almost certainly was referring to wide receiver Wes Welker -- who was judged widely to have made the costliest fourth-quarter drop -- along with a spilled catch by tight end Aaron Hernandez.
There has been a lot of comments that Gisele should keep her opinions to herself, but frankly I'm OK with the lady speaking her mind - and we are being honest ... what did you shout out when the Pats kept dropping the ball on that final drive?
Personally, I'm OK with the lovely Gisele having the passion to speak her mind about a sports game, especially when she has got it spot on.
As for the players themselves ... Wes Welker later said he "let the team down" with his fumbled play near the Giants' 20-yard-line, which came with 4:06 left on the clock and the Patriots up 17-15.
But Brady refused to publicly blame the receiver, who he described as a "phenomenal player and teammate," and offered to take a share of the blame for the throw while addressing the postgame media.
"[Welker] went up to try and make it, as he always does, and we just couldn't connect," he said.
