Tom Brady Kicks Ed Reed Like a Little Girl; Gisele Pissed Again

Who didn’t notice Tom Brady kicking Ed Reed like a little girl on this slide just before half-time? The kick even messed Brady up. Tom had no idea how to react after the awkward incident and then lost his composure, failing to call a time out with 17 seconds left before halftime, forcing the Patriots to settle for a field goal. Take a look at Brady's eyes, he's looking right at what he's doing and making a conscious effort to Ndamukong Suh Reed.
The referees didn’t call a personal foul, but make no mistake the Ravens were offended. Bernard Pollard, whose hit on Stevan Ridley changed the complexion of the game, stated after the game that he thought Brady should be fined. No word form the league office yet, but after looking at the video, it wil be hard for Roger Goodell not to levy at least something. Brady clearly went after Reed with his foot. To his credit, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was all over it in real-time, letting both the officials and Brady know we all saw it.
I don't think everyone calling her husband a girlie-man for kicking Ed Reed helped, but after the game Gisele Bündchen was noticeably pissed, similar to after last year's Patriots Super Bowl loss. Gisele's displeasure seemed to be directed at Wes Welker, who once again had a crucial drop in a big spot. "What can we do, Tom can't throw it and catch it too," she said.
Oh well, no wife swapping for you this offseason Wes, sorry...
BTW - I love the whole "Harbowl" thing, but after everything that transpired last week, are we just talking John and John Harbaugh at their word that they are brothers or is someone going to ask for birth certificates?
