The quarterback for the New England Patriots may feel bitter about this year's Super Bowl XL VII since his team took a hard loss last Sunday, Jan. 19.

Furthermore, on Wednesday, Brady told WEEI that he "couldn't care less" about the highly anticipated annual football match.

"I don't have much of a rooting interest, truthfully," said the NFL star. "Those games are hard to watch. I don't really see myself sitting down to enjoy a football game to watch it. Our season's over. Truthfully, I could care less about watching the game. That's pretty much how I feel."

In the AFC Championship game last Sunday, Brady's team lost 16 to 26 to the Denver Broncos, costing him a chance to compete in the Super Bowl this year.

The Patriots were one game shy of making it to New York where the Super Bowl is being held this year. Instead, the Broncos are playing the Seattle Seahawks on Feb. 2 at 4:30 p.m. EST.

Meanwhile, Brady's honest response about watching football comes just days after his wife, Gisele Bundchen, also admitted a biased interest in the sport.

"I only want to watch if I'm watching him," the supermodel said of her husband to the Associated Press.

Bundchen and Brady have been married since 2009 and share two children. The supermodel went on to explain that she and her husband support one another through wins and losses.

"We areboth very supportive of one another in what we do … Of course nobody likes to lose," Bundchen explained. "Those aren't the best days. He knows he does his best. He works extremely hard."

The Super Bowl XLVII will air on Fox live from the MetLife Stadium.
