Tom Brady can do just about everything, but he apparently has a few limitations.
His wife, Gisele Bundchen, revealed his weakness as a football player after the Giants beat the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI on Sunday.
“My husband cannot [expletive] throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time,” Bundchen said in an Insider video taken in the wake of the Patriots’ 21-17 loss. “I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”
Bundchen said more, but she was facing away from the camera and the rest of her comments were difficult to make out.
The most notable drops were Wes Welker‘s missed catch on second down on New England’s penultimate drive and Aaron Hernandez‘s muff on the final possession. Both would have been difficult catches, but they were makeable.
Some people might roll their eyes at a supermodel criticizing professional football players, but not us. Bundchen clearly knows how to make a clutch grab, because her spouse is quite a “catch.”

Giants fans can yell and boast about “owning” Brady, but then the three-time Super Bowl champ walks out of the stadium with his supermodel wife and you’ve got to believe life is still pretty good for No. 12.

Your sympathy is admirable, but we’re pretty sure none of the people getting those discarded shirts are football fans. They’re probably preoccupied with other stuff, like not starving to death.
