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

Oofah... in that photo she looks like she should be kicking youth out of her hostel for playing Rammstein too loudly; "Du!...Du hasst!...Du hasst mich!?? Nein mehr schnitzel fur du heidnisch!!"

All kidding aisde, she's upset that her hubby had a decent start turn into a bitter loss. At least she has an opinion and understands what is going on...unlike most of the bubble heads we oogle on the web.

But I'm stll glad the Patriots didn't win. Cool

Hmmm...I think Gisele's place is in the catwalk. She looks stunning when not trying to discuss a football game with football fans.

I've always been a Brady fan.
Outside of Welker, Gronk and brady..that team is average.
Bill B should be coach of the year for taking THAT team to the Super Bowl.
Sorry, still not sold on Eli. He wasn't going up against the '85 Bears.
Leave his wife alone..
I heard someone say that the Pats only beat 1 team with a winning record all year and that team is the Ravens 2 weeks ago.
So really, did the Giants really beat a good team in the SB? Nope.

Welker dropped that ball but Hernandez dropped a perfectly thrown ball that would have been a first  down too.  It wasn't nearly as bad a performance as the Green Bay Packers displayed.  That game would have been competetive and dare I say much different if they could make about a dozen easy plays that they fucked up.  Point is everybody drops balls.  The giants didn't...or did the least and that's why they're the champs this year. Go G-Men!!

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.

Gisele, you need to take a leaf from your husband's book and practice some accountability. Yes Wes' drop was incredibly costly, but at least the guy owns up to it. Ask Tom what he thinks and he'll tell you maybe ten things he could have done differently which would have changed the game. And, as you see in this article, he would never call out a teammate in the media.
