Default Giselle Bundschen blasts Patriot receivers

Last evening Giselle Bundschen blasted Patriot receivers for not being able to catch her husbands passes-----saying Tom cannot both throw and catch his own passes.

Brady has never been openly critical of his teammates----I think he will just have to smooth this over by talking to them and letting them he still has their back.

Methinks that Giselle will probably not be invited to the WR's wives social luncheon.

I thought Welkers ball was a difficult catch----granted he has made those plays before, but it certainly was not an easy catch.

Giselle is an emotional woman-----she wears her feelings on her sleeves. These things happen in the heat of the moment.

I know that Brady will have splaining to do-----but he had a good relationship with his teammates and I expect that to continue.

I suppose it was their fault when Brady got nailed for intentional grounding, too.

Brady wasn't at his best last night. Sure the Patriots receivers had their share of drops but he had several poorly thrown balls, and the one Welker "dropped" was one of them.

Sure Welker can make those catches but it's a hell of a lot easier to catch a ball that's put right in the breadbasket. That pass to Welker was overthrown by a good 3-5 yards.

I think the full story was that fans were taunting her on the way out of the stadium and she fired back with a very non-PC response. Not a big deal, she was upset over the loss and snapped back at some fans. But the media sure knows how to put a spin on every single thing people say today, whether it's an athlete, musician, politician, or in this case supermodel.

Women really get into sports, especially when they have a vested interest like Giselle has. I think a lot of people were emotional, I expect her to apologize and I think everyone will move on pretty quickly. At least she showed everyone that she cares.

Well woman or not, sometimes spouses have to shut up. Who do you think the receivers are going to give a hard time to...a female they never see or the QB they have to see every week during the season? She just potentially threw a wrench into the team unity of the offense.

I think everyone should give the girl a break. Imagine obnoxious fans taunting your man after that heartbreaking loss. I think she may want apologize to Wes though. I love Brady, but without Welker the Pats wouldn't have been in the Super Bowl in the first place.
