Brady fumbled. Pure and simple.
There was no attempt to release the ball as if to pass. I assume you're familiar with the mechanics of throwing a pass. The release point is at the top of the throwing arc. The ball was well below that point, below his head, nearly at chest level. No one, especially a technically correct passer like Brady, would or could successfully throw a pass with the ball still in his hand at chest level.
So come off it.
He fumbled.
Under orders from Goodell or from just plain old ineptness, the refs blew that one.
