The New England Patriots lost Super Bowl XLVI to the New York Giants 21-17 on Sunday night. The Patriots were able to move the football down the field multiple times in the game, but they did have some dropped passes that killed drives, including a late drop by wide receiver Wes Welker. Admittedly, Welker's catch would have been a great one as he lept and twisted through the air, but he just couldn't hold on to the ball.
"You (have) to catch the ball when you're supposed to catch the ball," Gisele Bundchen snapped back at a fan who was heckling Tom Brady. "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."
Now the Patriots certainly had some drops in the game, as did the Giants, but I'm not sure it was to the point of ripping the Patriots wide receivers over. Welker did drop a critical pass, but one could argue Brady also put a bit too much air under the football.
