It is hard to believe we haven’t heard from Tom Brady’s wife about her husbands terrible play in the AFC Championship game. Last year Gisele had plenty to say when Brady lost the game. Sunday in the loss to the Ravens, Brady threw the ball 54 times only completing 29 of those passes. Tom Brady played poorly and by now I expected Bündchen to come out with an excuses for his poor play. Maybe the two of them have been up late at night taking care of their new baby. After all anyone with a new-born at home knows that your schedule gets turned around. How about the slide that Brady made in the game? Why hasn’t Bündchen had something to say about that? Maybe Brady himself talked to her after last years statements and asked her to keep her comments to herself. Brady himself had to reach out to Ed Reed and apologize for kicking him while sliding. Now that Brady and his wife have two kids to take care of I guess she is just too busy to come out and make excuses for her husbands poor play. The proof is on the film, Brady didn’t look very interested in beating the Baltimore Ravens this time around. As to why he played so poorly in the AFC Championship game, we may never know until the day Gisele Bündchen decides to go public.

Brady should be fine.
I don’t think it was the worst thing I have ever seen, but the NFL fines players for wearing their socks too high, so I think Brady should be a little lighter in the wallet.
For his part Ed Reed says he isn’t tripping.
“I told him — you know, we talked,” Reed told WJZ-FM in Baltimore. “We talked actually not too long ago, we talked on the phone....

The NFL is looking into Tom Brady's leg-up slide that hit Ravens
safety Ed Reed in the AFC championship game.
This one little play has certainly gotten a lot of attention. With the final seconds of the second quarter counting down, Tom Brady scrambled, was surrounded by defenders, and then slid awkwardly with his leg going right for Reed's, umm, leg.

Once the Baltimore Ravens knocked off the Denver Broncos and the possibility of a Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady AFC Championship was eliminated, the next best option for the Super Bowl immediately became a Baltimore-San Francisco match-up.
