Supermodel Gisele Bündchen, wife of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, used a curse word in describing his team's pass receivers moments after the Pats' 21-17 loss to the Giants in Sunday's Super Bowl XLVI.

After excited Giants fans teased her on her way from the VIP suites at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis -- with one yelling that Giants quarterback "Eli [Manning] owns your husband!" -- Bündchen stood in a knot of people waiting at the elevator and muttered, "I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times. My husband cannot ---- throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time."

Receivers Wes Welker, Deion Branch and Aaron Hernandez all dropped passes, and Welker topped Internet searches for dropping a pivotal fourth-quarter pass.

Bündchen's comment, captured on a video shot for the CBS/Paramount syndicated entertainment-news show "The Insider," was posted Sunday night on the program's website.
