Okay, so this is not usually something I would put up on the Phinsider. It's loosely football related, and it's from the Super Bowl, but it's more gossip type stuff than anything else, but it's mentionable today simply because I find it funny. Apparently, after the New England Patriots lost to the New York Giants last night in Super Bowl XLVI, Mrs. Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, did not appreciate the ridicule some Giants fans were yelling as she left.

She turned to her friends and said, "You (have) to catch the ball when you're supposed to catch the ball. 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."
So, apparently, Bundchen is not a fan of the league's leader in receptions, a four time Pro Bowler, two time First Team All Pro in Wes Welker. A guy whose low in receptions since leaving the Miami Dolphins for the Patriots, is 86 in 2010. That's his low. He hasn't been below 111 any other year.
I guess the safety was Rob Gronkowski's fault. Or maybe Deion Branch should have somehow teleported to where that ball was landing.
Look, the receivers screwed up - like Welker dropping the ball when he was wide open - but so did Brady. I know Bundchen was frustrated, but way to throw your husband's wide outs under the bus. I mean, Welker is a slot receiver Bill Belichick is using as a #1 wide receiver. Gronkowski is out there trying to make plays despite a severely sprained ankle that is probably going to require surgery.
Maybe, just maybe, it was the entire Patriots team - coaches, players, and the Golden Boy - and not just the receivers.
