Tom Brady Wishes Wife Hadn't Made Post-Super Bowl Comments

It's been nearly four months since the New England Patriots lost to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI. It was a game that then frustrated Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker, who made a key drop late in the game, has been trying to move on from.

One person at the time who wasn't about to let Welker forget about it was his quarterback's wife, Gisele Bundchen. Following the Super Bowl loss, Gisele ripped Welker, saying that she couldn't believe how many passes from husband Tom Brady were dropped.

In speaking at "Salute To The Titans", an event that consisted of some of the games greatest quarterbacks, Brady says he wishes those comments were never made.

On the night of the Super Bowl loss, Brady said he wasn't fully aware of what was said. However, when he did find out, he wasn't happy with his wife's comments at all. Brady was asked about what exactly transpired when he found out.

"I woke up the next morning, I tapped her on the shoulder [and asked], ‘Why did you say that?' She was talking about the best player on our team, Wes Welker," Brady said.

Brady added that until you've been in that moment, you don't fully know how it feels to lose in the Super Bowl.

"You just sit up and you think and nobody quite understands - your wife and your parents or best friends - they just don't quite understand how you're feeling," Brady said.
