Gisele Bundchen blasts Pats WRs
New England 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, Bunchen lashed out at the team's receiving corps for failing to haul in her husband's passes. While waiting for an elevator at Lucas Oil Stadium, Bundchen was being heckled by Giants fans when she spoke to people in her group.
"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 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 email she sent urging her close family and friends to pray for Brady on Sunday.

Defeat is a bitter pill to swallow – especially at the Super Bowl.
Perhaps it was made a bit easier for Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady, whose wife Gisele Bündchen was on hand to comfort him in Indianapolis on Sunday night, after losing 21-17 to Eli Manning and the New York Giants in a suspenseful fourth quarter.
But playing the supportive footballer's wife means more than just being a shoulder to cry on. The supermodel was caught on camera defending her husband after being heckled by fans.
"My husband can not f––ing throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time," she said, taking a dig at Brady's receivers. "I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times."
