(CBS) Gisele Bundchen stood by her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, after the team's Super Bowl loss on Sunday, but her comments have since raised quite a few eyebrows.

The model was caught on tape saying that the receivers were to blame for the game's outcome.

"My husband can not f---ing throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time," she said while waiting for the elevator to leave the VIP suites at Indianapolis' Lucas Oil Stadium. "I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times."

Brady's teammates were "disappointed" by her comments, according to TMZ. Sources inside the Patriots organization told the website that Bundchen violated a "code of brotherhood" by blaming the receivers.

She also tried to comfort her husband after the game - the model can be seen on video embracing Brady and telling him, "You played the best game of your life ... you were amazing."

This isn't the first time Bundchen's comments have landed her in hot water. A few months after giving birth to the couple's son Benjamin, she appeared to criticize other pregnant women in an interview with Vogue magazine.

"I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals," she said in the magazine's April 2010 issue, adding that she was "mindful" of what she ate.

But back to Bundchen's Super Bowl comments - What do you think of what she said? Was the model simply coming to the defense of a loved one? Or should she have left the post-game analysis to players and sportswriters? Vote in our poll and share your thoughts in the comments.
