Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker was so upset over dropping a crucial pass late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 21-17 loss to the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, he nearly started crying at the podium.
Welker isn’t going to get any pity from quarterback Tom Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen, though.
After her prayers for a Patriots’ championship went unanswered, Bundchen lashed out at the team’s receiving core for failing to haul in her husband’s passes.
“My husband can not f------ throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times,” Bundchen said as she was waiting for an elevator at Lucas Oil Stadium, in a video captured by theinsider.com, a gossip website.
Wide receiver Deion Branch and tight end Aaron Hernandez dropped passes on New England’s final drive.
After the game, Welker said he let the team down when he failed to come up with a Brady pass he says he catches “1,000 times.”
“Wes is a phenomenal player and a teammate,” Brady said. “I love that guy.”
If only his supermodel wife felt the same way.
Bundchen made headlines leading into the game when the press received an e-mail she sent urging her close family and friends to pray for Brady on Sunday.
Oh well. Always next year.
