the second i saw the replay i looked at my buddy (a cowpie fan) and said "can he even make that play, isn't it a horse collar and anything that happens after that can only be good for the vikings?" he totally agreed, but of course its the vikes so there was no call.

The nfl needs to crack down on bad officationg to do that they need to post all bad call's made during previous week and who made them. It's fair as the goose as it is the gander they call out numbers when there is a foul. The viking's are getting some bad call's aganist them. I remenber in pittsburg a touchdown was called back because of a so called holding penalty. go vikings.

It was a horse collar tackle and a horse s*** no call. It could have ended AP's career. Buchanon should be fined by the NFL.

It was a horse-collar! I watched the game again,(I tape all my Viking's games) and there it was in plain view for everybody in the world to see(except the Officials, of course). I tape the games for my own use, so there, NFL, stick your "Rules" in your ear.....

Exactly and our season would of been ruined because of this injury. The Refs never give us a fair deal. Look at the non call in the 75 championship game against Dallas they went on and won the SB because of the non call on the Receiver. He clearly pushed off and no called. Dallas goes to the SB. What a bunch of Vike haters these Refs are.
GO VIKES!!!!

I think it's because of the Williamses avoiding the suspensions through court. Goodell is as corrupt as the next guy.... I mean the dude is trying to change laws to abide by his game. What a clown

Is it also legal for Buchannon to pull Peterson down when he is pursuing the fumble. No defensive holding? It was a horse***t non call.
No, no holding when going after a fumball, it's all legal except to intentionally kick the ball, anything goes when going after the ball.

I may be wrong, but I don't think it was a horse collar. A horse collar is grabbing the back of the shoulder pads and pulling the guy straight back and down to the ground. I think, in this play, the defender hung on to the back of AP and swung around to knock the ball out. Again I could be wrong, but that is the way I saw it.

Peterson isnt as good as everyone makes him out to be. he is a good back but he can not hold onto the ball and i for see a play off game where peterson will lose the ball and the vikes will end up losing from it. dosent matter if you run for 300 yards a game if you cant be trusted to hold onto the ball takes alot away from a back. I think peterson has already peaked and fade fast in the coming years. vikes should use him for and off season trade and get ourselves a few good draft picks

The first part of the play was legal, when he grabbed his jersey and slapped the ball out- the part that should have resulted in a PENALTY was when he proceeded to drag him down by the back of his jersey and roll up on his legs.

They call every possible penalty then can when you breath on a QB the wrong way, and the RBs (even the star ones) get absolutely no respect.

how does a defensive player get a delay of game penalty, this is the second time this year it has been called on the vikes. If someone could explain this to me that would be great.

The Vikings seem to always be on the wrong side of the refs calling or not calling penaties. This week the horsecollar and the BS penalty on Edwards for roughing the passer.

3 times the Vikes have been called for defensive delay of game. I've never heard of that before this year and have never ever seen that called in all the years I've watched NFL football.

The BS call in Pittsburgh that probably cost us the game on Rice's touchdown.

The list goes on and on. Refs have gotten worse and worse each year. They need to be full-time Refs like most other sports, maybe that'd help.

I think the refs should have to explain why there was a defensive delay of game also. they don't even show why.

In 2006, NFL owners expanded the rule to include tackles by the back of the jersey in addition to tackles by the shoulder pads.

I think the refs are to old, can`t even get out of the way, can`t see, can`t run, can`t ref, not just vikes games, but watch almost every game, blown calls, get some younger refs in there, just my view on this ref thing. Brett Farve !!!!!!!!1 GO VIKES !!!!!!!!!!

Now, I may be wrong on this but, I know you can get a delay of game penalty by spiking or kicking the football after a play is blown dead. The part a may be wrong about is when a defensive player is trying to simulate the snap count to get the offensive player to move. I think its a delay of game penalty. Not sure, but I definitely know that it is a penalty. I also believe that if a defensive player does not allow an offensive player to get up, i.e. during the hurry up, its delay of game. And also, if the defense doesn't make a concerted effort to get onside during the hurry up, I believe its a delay of game. Again, could be wrong on some accounts.
