Tom Brady and Gisele vacation with Wes Welker, Anna Burns in Costa Rica

Wondering how Tom Brady and Wes Welker would get along after Gisele ripped the Patriots’ receivers for dropping passes in the Super Bowl? Apparently they’re doing just fine.

X17 Online published several photos of Tom and wife Gisele on vacation at their home in Costa Rica. The Boston Herald points out that Wes Welker and his fiancee, Anna Burns, also joined them.

Brady is the one wearing the black cap in the picture while Welker has a white cap. Typically we wouldn’t think too much about a vacation, but this is significant because it shows things appear to be fine between Brady and Wes. Welker is a free agent and expected to receive a franchise tag from the Patriots.

Kristin Cavallari likes that Gisele stuck up for husband Tom Brady

Kristin Cavallari is engaged to Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, so she knows what it’s like to be the girlfriend of a highly-scrutinized player. She saw what Gisele said after the Patriots’ Super Bowl loss Sunday and said she liked the way the supermodel stood by her husband.

This isn’t the first time she’s used Twitter to express a similar position. When the Bears used their first-round draft pick on an offensive lineman last year, Cavallari was ecstatic that the team was trying to protect her boyfriend.

The reaction to Gisele’s comments has differed. Some Patriots reportedly feel like Gisele broke the code of brotherhood. Other people like the way she defended her husband.

I like Gisele’s loyalty too, but like Kristin said, not when it comes at the expense of the team. She can leave it to the media and fans to point out that the loss wasn’t all on Tom.

Brandon Jacobs apologizes for saying Gisele should shut up

Brandon Jacobs is a man of many words. In case you have forgotten, this is a guy who wanted out of New York a few short months ago. He wanted nothing to do with the Giants and admitted he was only worried about driving his “fast ass car.” Super Bowls seem to have a way of fixing everything, don’t they? Now that the G-Men took home the Lombardi trophy, Jacobs has focused his attention on running his mouth to opponents’ wives. It may be hard to believe, but he actually apologized for telling Gisele to “stay cute and shut up” on Wednesday.

“Given the fact that it’s a colleague of mine’s wife, I do apologize for saying that, because I shouldn’t have said that,” Jacobs said on ESPN Radio’s Doug Gottlieb Show according to Pro Football Talk.  “It’s his wife and I should respect that just as much as anyone else.”

Gisele should not have said what she did about the Patriots’ receivers, but Jacobs was also out of line. We had wondered if he would issue an apology for those comments in the same way he did with his decapitation remark, and it looks like he decided that was the best choice. Regardless of how inappropriate Gisele’s comment was, it was not directed at Jacobs and was none of his business. He either realized that or — more likely — someone had to tell him.

Brandon Jacobs: Gisele needs to ‘continue to be cute and shut up’

Gisele became one of the sideshows of the Super Bowl after ripping Tom Brady’s receivers for dropping balls. Her comments reportedly created a rift within the Patriots locker room because she broke the “code of brotherhood.”

Giants running back Brandon Jacobs reportedly has a solution for how she should handle things from now on.

“She just needs to continue to be cute and shut up,” he said Tuesday according to a tweet from New York Post writer Brian Costello.

Jacobs already apologized for saying the Giants decapitated the Patriots. I wonder if he’ll end up doing the same thing now that his rude remark is making the rounds.

He could have easily gotten his point across by saying “she should keep her thoughts to herself.” Instead, he took the misogynistic approach essentially saying women should be seen and not heard. I guess this qualifies as about the third dumb thing he’s said this postseason.

Patriots say Gisele broke ‘code of brotherhood’ by ripping wide receivers

The Patriots reportedly did not appreciate Gisele Bundchen’s response to a heckling Giants fan after their Super Bowl 46 loss. Who would? As a massive public figure, you would think Gisele would be adept to handling criticism and know enough to ignore it. Unfortunately, she fired back at a Giants fan who criticized her husband Tom Brady on Sunday night by bashing New England’s receivers for dropping passes. According to TMZ.com, the Patriots are not happy with their quarterback’s better half.

Multiple team sources reportedly told TMZ that Gisele violated a “code of brotherhood” by throwing the pass-catchers under the bus. One source expressed disappointment by saying her comments were like “kicking someone when they are down.”

Sources tell TMZ, the teammates are “disappointed” Gisele decided to air her grievances after the game last night — when she said, “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.”

According to sources, Tom’s teammates feel betrayed by Gisele’s behavior — the Pats organization is a brotherhood and Gisele’s pot shot violated the code — which is basically … win as a team, lose as a team.

Depending on who wears the pants in the Brady-Bundchen relationship, it is quite possible that Tom let his wife know she has to learn not to say things like that or let opposing fans bother her. Either that, or he begged and pleaded and told her not to worry about it and to please, please, please try not to do it again. I’m sure one way or another it was discussed in the Brady (Bundchen?) household.

Gisele Bundchen rips Patriots receivers in response to heckling Giants fan

Gisele Bundchen is rarely ever present to watch the Patriots play. She is obviously busy making millions of dollars, but Patriots fans probably feel as though she should stay busy more often. Once again, Gisele was on hand Sunday afternoon to watch Tom Brady and company lose one of the biggest games of their lives. As she exited her luxury box following the Super Bowl 46 loss, a Giants fan decided to heckle Gisele. She then did what a celebrity or athlete should never do: responded.

“Eli rules!” the fan yelled according to CBS New York. “Eli owns your husband!”

“You (have) to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball,” Bundchen fired back. “My husband cannot (bleeping) throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”

Known for being a great teammate and great leader on and off the field, Brady will likely cringe when he hears about the exchange.  Gisele is right about New England’s receivers needing to catch the ball. Brady’s favorite target, Wes Welker, had the most important drop of the game on a drive where the Patriots could have used a score.  Aaron Hernandez and Deion Branch each dropped a pass as the Patriots were fighting for their lives with under a minute to go.  Mistakes killed New England, but everyone on the team made them — Brady included.

Between this and the sickening email Gisele sent to family members last week, Brady’s wife isn’t earning any points among a fan base that widely considers her to be a jinx.

Gisele Bundchen’s Email to Friends and Family: Pray for My Husband Tom Brady

Any football player who has a significant other has someone who is worried about them on Sundays.  Football is a violent game.  When you play a sport that involves 300-pound men trying to rip your head off and knock you out, your loved ones are bound to be concerned for your health and safety.  It is understandable that Gisele Bundchen worries about Tom Brady while he is playing football, but was her email to friends and family a bit over-the-top?  Gisele sent an email chain out this week asking that people give “Tommy” their love and support at this time.  One of those close friends or family members emailed it to the NY Post. Check it out:

“My sweet friends and family,” the e-mail began. “This sunday will be a really important day in my husband’s life. He and his team worked so hard to get to this point and now they need us more than ever to send them positive energy so they can fulfill their dream of winning this super bowl . . .

“So I kindly ask all of you to join me on this positive chain and pray for him, so he can feel confident, healthy and strong. Envision him happy and fulfilled experiencing with his team a victory this sunday.

“Thank you for your love and support. Love, G :)”

When the Post reached out to Gisele for comment, she gave the following response: “I am surprised that you received this e-mail; It was a private note only sent to close friends and family.”

As a supermodel and millionaire, she should know nothing is private in this day and age.  So what do you think?  Is this just a nice gesture from a loving wife, or is it so sappy you already threw up before you finished reading this post?  Personally, I see nothing wrong with asking friends and family for prayer and support if you’re a religious person.  But that’s just the opinion of one real big Tom Brady fan.
