I saw Adriens face mask being pulled as Hillenmeyer was punching the ball out, Once again, where are the officials who are supposed to be on top of each play? I do not have good eye sight and I could see that. Maybe it's about time Mr. Goodell starts fining officials for no calls and blown calls. They damage the whole team not just one player. That's one Adrien fumble I blame totally on the officiating or lack of. That was not the only one. There was a flagerant push in the back of one of our WR's before the ball even got there. Once again, no call. Start hitting these ref's where it hurts, right in their bill fold. Home field advantage should be no more than crowd noise and the fact you did not have to travel. That should be it.

Did Chilly also agree a flag should have been called in overtime when Favre was sacked on three straight plays and got up and spiked the ball? If the refs are so anti Vikings please tell me why the refs helped Favre get his jersey back over his shoulder pads or why they were helping him off the ground. Put responsibilty where it lies a running back who can't hold on to the ball.

It's just like the pittsbugh game the vikes played
they whined about the calls on that game too. If you need the calls to go your way to win then you don't deserve to win.

The face mask that Childress spoke of is not why the Vikings lost the game. The Vikings should have buried the Bears and not been in a position to need overtime to win the game. What's the matter with this team anyway?

Whining and excuses. I knew you'd get there, eventually. Not that far from bragging and big predictions, is it? Next, it will be abandonment of your beloved team. Some of you have started down that road already. You guys go through this cycle every year. It's just part of being a Vikings fan, I guess.

All the calls dont always go your way or even get called, but the ones that can cost a team the game they should be looked at on instant replay . there needs to be a few changes made & Goodell needs to make them . even you thefacts of Hudson Wi & ex favre fan of Hager City Wi should be in agreement with that Should it happen to your team. isnt that right packrats . A little added fun there lol GO VIKINGS

Baseless name calling? Yeah, that is a very snappy comeback, albeit without substance. Just calling 'em like I see 'em, Bubba.

Again Chilly was out coached. Chilly is so predictable that it is not hard to game plan for his calls. Until someone comes up with a new blocking scheme, Peterson will have to get his yards on his own. We have a good enough offensive line, we need a head coach.

the only way to teach ap to hold onto ball is tape it to him all day in practice and mostly running the ball.and getting hit also make him sleep with it .

Face it some of you GB drum beaters, Favre is good for the league and brings in millions for the NFL. You don't want some dumbo trying to make a name for himself putting Favre out with a cheap shot. He gets plenty of those already. The AP fumble agianst GB also showed a facemask. AP will not get a break from officials as shown by both of those incidents as well as the fumble following the horsecollar tackle earlier in the season. Am I biased? Maybe so but so are you by your comments. If you can't recognize good players whether they wear green or purple its time to revaluate your motive. Several times I have commented and praised Rodgers for his fine play, something you have not learned to recognize about Favre or AP as GB backers. Too bad you are bad mouthing and missing out on watching two future HOF'ers. By the way I can honestly say I really enjoyed watching the Badgers destroy Miami last night. The final score is certainly not indicative of the game. They have a young team and will be back.

We coach kids to play the game and never speak to an official. Chilly is a grown man blaming the officials for one call that lost the game? GROW UP you baby!! You know why you lost Coach - giving up 30 points to the one of the worst offensive teams in Football. The 6 points in overtime you gave up is no one's fault but your own.

And the replay after Favre got sacked for a third straight time showed Favre spiking the ball too the ground, point was penalties are missed on both sides, if this penalty had been called on the Vikes the previous drive, the Vikes probably wouldn't have been talking about an AD fumble because the field goal on the prior drive would have beev fifteen yards closer. Quit playing the could have, would have, should of game, all AD had to do was hold onto the ball, he holds on, instead of trying to fight for extra yardage you have a chance. I didn't see the ref mishandling the football.

Kind of like being a Packer fan, when you have a good team every 30 years or so.

The officials were busy helping me up when I fell down. That's why they missed that facemask call.

Or a true Vikings fan, when you've never had a team that's won it all.
