After a tough loss on Sunday evening at Lucas Oil Stadium, Tom Brady’s wife Gisele Bundchen, was caught Bond saying some harsh words to her inner circle.
As she was waiting by an elevator to go meet her husband, gossip website theinsider.com, captured the supermodel venting at the wrong time, “My husband can not (expletive) throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time,” Bundchen said. “I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”
Bundchen definitely put herself and Brady in an interesting position with those harsh comments. These are the sort of remarks that can bring serious conflict between teammates, especially when they are shared from a players family member.
Bundchen should know not to say these kind of statements while in public, as she is entitled to her own opinion, and also know everyone is a reporter these days with social media playing a huge role.
In her defense, however, she was being heckled by New York fans while also seeing the person she loves dearly losing in a game that she knew meant so much to him. There is no question she was in an emotionally raw state of mind.
She also did it not say this to any Giants fans or professional reporters, she was just speaking her mind to her close friends and someone happened to be within an earshot with their phone in hand.
There is no question that a comment like the one Bundchen made, could come between teammates. I know Welker and Brady are close though, so the two should be able to correct the situation.
“Wes is a phenomenal player and a teammate,” Brady said. “I love that guy.”
New Englanders and Patriots fans across the country seem to be taking part in the blame game on Monday afternoon, as Patriots Nation deals with another Super Bowl defeat.
Welker, who did drop a difficult pass that would have potentially iced the game late in the fourth quarter, nearly broke down in a post game press conference.
“That’s a play I make a thousand times,” Welker said. “I just didn’t make it.”
Welker was extremely emotional after the game and continually fought back tears according to several media outlets who attended his post game conference.
While many will question if Welker played his last game in New England, as his contract is now expired, the NFL’s leading receiver over the past five years has only a single thought on his mind.
“It’s a play I never drop. Most critical situation, and I let the team down.”
