While New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady defended his butterfinger receivers, wife and supermodel Gisele Bundchen wasn’t so kind shortly after the Giants defeated the Patriots 21-17 in Super Bowl XLVI.

Receivers Aaron Hernandez, Deion Branch and Wes Welker all had key drops for the Patriots, the most critical being Welker’s miscue with four minutes to go in the game and the Patriots driving with the lead.

Brady, always cool under fire on the field, handled the postgame news conference in the same manner, defending Welker and refusing to point fingers.

Bundchen, on the other hand, fired on her husband’s teammates. As she was exiting Lucas Oil Stadium, the Brazilian model said this in a video posted by

“You [have] to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball. My husband cannot [f---ing] throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”
