Brady’s wife on Super Bowl loss: He can’t throw the f***ing ball and catch it too

posted at 4:20 pm on February 6, 2012 by Allahpundit

You know what the worst part of this is? She’s standing right next to at least one other player’s wife when she says it. I’m 99 percent sure that’s Mrs. Vince Wilfork beside her; any Pats fans out there recognize any wide receivers’ significant others in the vicinity?

The reaction from his teammates is just what you’d expect. TMZ’s inevitable headline: “The Yoko Ono of the Patriots.” The quote:

As Bundchen made her way through Lucas Oil Stadium, a fan yelled, “Eli rules!” and “Eli owns your husband!” With that it was go time — and the Patriots’ receivers were going right under a bus.

“You [have] to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball,” she replied (via TheInsider.com). “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.”

I can’t believe it either. Welker’s getting all of the heat for his drop at the 20 on the penultimate drive that would have put the game away, but the first two passes of the final drive were also dropped — one by Branch (after the ball was tipped, I think) and the other by Hernandez. Brady ended up converting on fourth down but that was 10 seconds and who knows how many yards squandered when they had no margin for error. Any sympathy for Gisele here, then? A billionaire supermodel and her superstar quarterback husband aren’t natural objects for compassion and obviously she should have kept her mouth shut while she was around the other players’ wives. But (a) she’s got some jackhole heckling her about how Eli owns her husband, (b) she’s got her back to the camera so she wasn’t trying to broadcast this sentiment for popular consumption, and (c) …she’s right. Brady screwed up with the first-quarter grounding call and later the interception to Blackburn but those were all catchable balls at the end, if not the prettiest passes he’s ever thrown. Go figure that Mrs. Brady might show a flash of defensiveness on his behalf when she’s got drunks taunting her about how it’s all his fault.

I feel bad for Brady and Welker. Both are great players. Brady may be the best QB of all time. And Welker almost never misses a ball. The Giants are damn lucky. The Redskins only won 5 games this year and they beat the Giants twice. Giants fans are jerks and they proved that by harassing Giselle. Screw em!

And that is just for a YouTuber who has a good following. There is mad money being made in the beauty business. If you are a father please tell your little girl she’s beautiful because the beauty business is making money telling her she’s not.

I’m sure he feels awful. But he still blew an easy play. And when you lose the championship game in the final minutes of the 4th quarter the way the Pats did, every single big play is gonna be magnified and picked apart. Unfortunately that’s the biggest one.

Welker, who is also a class act like Brady, took full blame for missing that catch, in an interview I caught on NFL Network after the game.

Good Solid B-Plus on February 6, 2012 at 4:27 PM

Wasn’t aware that Vinatieri led the team downfield those times to put them into a position to win. Kicking the FG to win in those situations was a no-brainer. Playing the percentages.

And remember, Vinatieri was not the first kicker to win a Super Bowl. That happened way back in Super Bowl V.

The Pat’s biggest mistake was to give up the touchdown with a minute left so Brady could get the ball back. Really stupid. They should have forced the field goal. They could have blocked it, Giants could have missed. You don’t give up six points in a Superbowl game against the Giants. They deserved to lose. Lots of blame to go around.

monalisa on February 6, 2012 at 5:03 PM

She has a lingerie (SP?!) line, which is extremely lucrative…she’s no dummy, she will be the first and perhaps only billion dollar model. I hate hecklers, I don’t care who is being heckled, and I could feel her discomfort and embarrassment just watching the footage…fans can be idiots (and the Giants are my team), however, she shouldn’t have said what she said. Why respond to idiots? I know she didn’t say it directly to them, either, but still, the ones doing the heckling got noticed, and are probably patting themselves on the back for causing Mrs. Brady to lose her cool…why give them that? Plus, Tom Brady himself was saying all the right things in his presser about his teammates. His wife did him no favors saying what she said, even if for no other reason than now the media will jump on the whole, Giselle-as-Yoko, meme…

Football is a sport where there are so many outside things going on that it almost makes the game ridiculous.

Instant reply
QB has a speaker in his helmet (high school and college do not — I thought the game was supposed to get harder as you got older?)

the qb talks on a phone to his coordinator who is up a mile high in a booth someplace looking at the whole field.

the qb comes off of the field and is handed high res images of the defense from above the stadium.

so, its kind of difficult to get up in arms about what Belichek does.

Its also why you can’t compare players from today to the greats of the past. Totally different game.

Needless to say, she’s absolutely right. It’s a classic example of Things In Football Everyone Is Allowed to Think But No One Is Allowed to Say.

Usually drops are only a permissible topic when the team is doing poorly and the quarterback is sufficiently talented that he can’t be blamed for the team’s lack of playoff acumen. See also: the Seattle Seahawks during the glory days of Matt Hasselbeck, or the Browns pretty much any time they get a Quarterback of the Future (which just happened again this year, with the same result).

Irony of the Week, back in December when the Giants were in danger of missing the playoffs and Coughlin in danger of getting run out of town, the Giants led the league in… dropped passes. What a difference eight weeks can make.

every giants drive can be summed up like this:

The team lost – not just the receivers. The blame game is for losers.
Pablo Snooze on February 6, 2012 at 5:21 PM

Yup. Standing up for her husband would be “He’s a big boy, he can take the good with the bad.”.

Adam Vinatieri got Brady those rings.

tetriskid on February 6, 2012 at 4:58 PM

Another one…

Dude, kicking is part of football. They give 3 points per FG. If all you need is 3, you don’t risk going for 6 just to prove a point.

angryed on February 6, 2012 at 5:27 PM

She was right. She’s not Yoko. Yoko wasn’t even Yoko for crying out loud.

People need to get over it.

JAM on February 6, 2012 at 5:27 PM

I was not even going to watch the game, because I just knew that St. Tom and the Pats would tear NY apart this time and I did not want to see that. However, I missed all the opening stuff and watched the game. So glad I did.

Hey Tom Brady, Eli Manning owns you buddy.

carbon_footprint on February 6, 2012 at 5:28 PM

As a Bears fan, I was surprised and pleased to see Devon Hester and Ron Williams make appearances as Pat receivers doing what they did best for the Bears- dropping eminently catchable passes thrown by an excellent quarterback.

MarkT on February 6, 2012 at 5:29 PM

Speaking of standing up for the team, where was Belichoke after the game? Was he hiding because the team lost, or afraid the question of not being able to win since he was caught cheating would come up?

angrymike on February 6, 2012 at 5:29 PM

I can’t help thinking Brady must have been mortified to hear of her comments. It is a game, after all. Passes get dropped, overthrown, underthrown, intercepted…it happens every game. The last thing he would have done is blamed his teammates for the loss.

scalleywag on February 6, 2012 at 5:30 PM

please, dude routinely overthrows everybody on the field.

every giants drive can be summed up like this:

Play one: Run stuffed
Play two: Bad pass
Play three: Duck and Chuck to convert on third down.

If he wasn’t a Manning then he wouldn’t have even played college ball.

Plus, he is a little whiner who didn’t want to play in San Diego.

He thinks hes entitled to play where he wants to play and not where he is drafted.

joey24007 on February 6, 2012 at 5:19 PM

Joey, I’ll take 30 out of 40 for 296 yards and no picks every week. He must have really screwed up on that last drive, as he didn’t even have to convert a third down.

As good as Manningham’s catch was, Eli put it in pretty much the only spot it could be thrown to be caught. Contrast that to Brady’s high and behind throw to a wide open Walker.

The Eli of today is not the Eli of his early NFL years, when he did have a tendency to over throw everyone.

ljmesq on February 6, 2012 at 5:30 PM

what’s the haps angrymike? ya chillin’?

DHChron on February 6, 2012 at 5:30 PM

Tommy Bundchen was having a pretty good game until Justin Tuck sacked him in the 3rd quarter, driving Tommy’s shoulder into the turf in the process. He just wasn’t the same after that.

Stu Gotts on February 6, 2012 at 5:31 PM

Lemme see…I just know I have some mournful violin music on CD someplace.

Thanks, Eli, for stuffing the face of New England with crow.

Limerick on February 6, 2012 at 5:31 PM

She can defend her husband without putting the team down. He’s the QB, and that’s not going to help him in the locker room.

She has a habit of saying stupid stuff. People don’t like her when she talks.

MayBee on February 6, 2012 at 5:31 PM

I think it’s hilarious that a team which has been to 5 SBs in 11, years, won 3 and lost 2, each by less than a TD, is called a loser team.

What even more hillarious is that some of the people doing so are Browns, Seahwaks, Dolphins, Jets, Lions or Vikings fans. LOL

angryed on February 6, 2012 at 5:33 PM

The last thing he would have done is blamed his teammates for the loss.

scalleywag on February 6, 2012 at 5:30 PM

Exactly. Only loser QBs like Vinnie Testervede did that. The QB gets a lot of the glory, and part of the deal is sucking up a lot of the criticism. She hurt him by saying this.

MayBee on February 6, 2012 at 5:33 PM

It looks like arrogance runs in the family. Good riddance GiGi and Tom until next year.

I don’t think she should get a pass because she’s a model. I think she has manly facial features.

HellCat on February 6, 2012 at 5:34 PM

Too bad, these guys do have to play together again next year so it doesn’t bode well to have a judgmental spouse in the mix. She should try and mend the fence.

Started back to work today, after 6 months bad back. I’m a tired, it was a looong day!

angrymike on February 6, 2012 at 5:34 PM

Mrs. Brady should have directed her vitriol toward the chiding Giant’s fans, not her husband’s team mates.

She proved herself to be most ungracious…and a problem.

Next time, she should stay at home, if she can’t take the heat.

joey24007 on February 6, 2012 at 5:19 PM

Ok I’ll confess I don’t much about football but I find it hard to believe he’s so talent-less that he couldn’t even play for a college team when he, er, just won a the SUPERBOWL? But I am girl so I probably don’t know what I’m talking about.

terryannonline on February 6, 2012 at 5:36 PM

It was pretty bad at the end, there. I assumed the fix was in.

John the Libertarian on February 6, 2012 at 5:36 PM

Tom should offer her up and play cuckhold to mend this mess.

carbon_footprint on February 6, 2012 at 5:36 PM

HellCat on February 6, 2012 at 5:34 PM

She’s also 5’11. That’s not manly at all!

I noticed that on the instant replays they failed to show Archie stumbling to his left before chucking it down the sideline.

To say Manning put it in that spot on purpose is ridiculous.
