In general, Tom Brady leads a charmed life. He's an NFL quarterback, three-time Super Bowl champ, UGG spokesman -- and the cherry on top -- he's married to supermodel Gisele Bündchen. Yes, the Patriots fell to the Giants Sunday night in Super Bowl XLVI, and yes Brady was distraught by the outcome, but in the scheme of things, it won't define his career.

Of course, the criticism in the hours after the loss were swift and, well, critical. Brady was accused of a horrible performance even though he started 20 of 24, broke Joe Montana's Super Bowl completion record in the process, then suffered a Justin Tuck sack that changed everything. He finished the night 7 of 17 and a slightly off-target throw to Wes Welker with four minutes to go ultimately proved to be the difference.

Gisele, who was at the game, had to endure jeers and taunts from Giants fans as she left her suite at Lucas Oil Stadium.

“Eli rules!” screamed one fan. “Eli owns your husband!” yelled another.

Gisele's response?

“You (have) to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball,” she snapped back, according to CBS New York. “My husband cannot (bleeping) throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”

Welker took full responsibility for not coming down with a Brady throw that was also high and behind him.

"The ball is right there," Welker said when asked if he was looking for it on the other shoulder. "I've just got to make the play. It's a play I've made a thousand times in practice and everything else. It comes to the biggest moment of my life and I don't come up with it. It's discouraging."

Brady, for his part, didn't waver in his support of Welker.

"Wes was running down the field and it looked like they messed the coverage up a little bit and I threw it to him," said Brady. "(Welker) went up to try and make it, as he always does, and we just couldn't connect. He's a hell of a player. I'll keep throwing the ball to him for as long as I possible can. He's a phenomenal player and teammate and I love that guy."

Apparently, a TMZ source says that Brady's teammates are "disappointed" and feel betrayed by Gisele's comments.

Gisele can't believe Pats dropped so many passes

She has a point. There were some key passes dropped by guys, especially Welker, who normally catch them. If Welker catches that pass, the Pats likely win the game. But hey, that's football. Sometimes you get the breaks, sometimes you don't.

Welker probably should have caught that ball, although the pass could have been better, I would say 98% of the time Welker hauls that in.  Gisele should stick to the making sandwhiches in kitchen for her husband and his friends.

One thing to support your husband, another to bash the rest of the team for their errors and mistakes. One could also argue that Brady finally got busted for an intentional grounding, which he is notoriously famous for getting away with. This time, it cost the team a safety, but she kept her mouth shut for that. If I was administration, I would put a gag on the woman. It is not her place to openly and negatively criticize the team for which her husband plays for. Looks like that house the Patriots have lived in for so long is made of glass after all.

     No... Gisele's catwalk days are done, it appears. Brady may get another shot at the pie, but I wouldn't count on it. If the Ravens acquire Peyton, the Pats got another thing coming next year. The Raven's cannot go with Flacco, cannot.  I still think he cost that team, even if it appears he did enough this year. He has to give em some easy games and put up 40 points once in awhile like the good QB,s do. Give yer team a break. No, with Flacco every game's a stressor, nailbiting, keep your starters in barnburner. She is right though, and I kinda felt that the difference in this game would be Hernandez's dropped balls. I don't know what everyone sees. but he does miss catches or drop balls. I was looking for this in this game, and it happened. The only thing is it happened with Welker too. I made money and bet against Gronk's yardage for the game, Welker's longest reception, and yardage, and Peyton not getting intercepted. Awesome. Peyton is just money. Giants coulda got cheated on the non call, but they once again they showed mental toughness, overcame and pulled it out. Just absolutely astounding, amazing how the games keep playing out like this.... first Tyree, then Manningham, all the Pats timely botches, and the Giant's timely successes. Manning's two duels over the great Tom Brady, and Belichik is worth 3 rings added to his two. Belichik will look for a way to cheat should these two meet here again.

Freesafety says

She clearly had been bawling her eyes out.   looks bad, but rather than crack on her looks, and i applaud her for being so supportive and ivested in her husband's success.  rare to see a celeb real to show un-glam emotions.

I am with you 100%

Being a Giant fan I wished the Giant fans had acted liked they had been there b4.  Instead of ragging on her and Brady I wished they would have said tell Tom he played a great game and fortunately we came out on top this time.

Heck we were pretty lucky to win this game.
