The guys on the radio said the whistle blew so it didn't matter. Percy was right there, he should know. His comments tell me the whistle did NOT blow, and the replays clearly show a touchdown.

Come on Leslie! You seem to be a great guy, a guy I want to cheer for but you gotta be better than this. It was as though you didn't want Atlanta reviewing Harvin's run with as fast as you ran the 4th down play. Take some time and check the replay! It's the biggest play of the game, your best player gives great 2nd effort getting to the end zone and you act as though you're late for something. Relax and show us all you can handle the big stage because right now you look like a deer in the headlights.

Harvin definitely scored, Percy is one of the smartest players in the game and his on field awareness is always right on. The ball clearly crossed the line before his knee was down and his second effort to get into the end zone was never whistled dead by the referee's. While it probably was a tough call for the ref's, I have to once again wonder what game the Vikings personal are watching up in the press box? Assuming they at least have the brains to have someone reviewing the game on TV with a DVR?

I don't know what the Vikings officials were looking at. Harvin scored on the second effort, and I was expecting at least a red flag from the chief. I guess he was too cool to challenge it. Brian Billick even said the same thing.

I spotted it before the booth announcers did. I was screaming at my TV for a challenge. Every person watching the game knew it was a touchdown except for the person the Viking's pay to spot those things. They should be drawing unemployment as of today.

"In hindsight, Musgrave said he should have called something different on fourth down." ....Ya Think??? Although there should've not been a 4th down cuz it was a Touchdown, that ONCE AGAIN, the refs blow it for us!! What the He** does the NFL and the refs have against the Vikings??? This crap happens ALL the time!!!

Musgrave must go! His play calling is predictable, his use of personnel is questionable and now this fiasco with a possible touchdown scored and no challenge? We've seen enough of this with Colonel Klink. Don't want to see any more.

jcracer19 I could not agree more. The Vikings always seem to get the the worst calls and for some reason GB gets the best calls (like they need the help). During this game I watched some very helpfull spots for Atlanta and not so great a spot for the Vikings. The officials might want to read up on a thing called DVR... It's a new thing that lets the public rewind plays and look to see if it was a good spot (or call) or not. I watch a lot of football and I have to say this year the officials have been horrible!!!!! Not just for the Purple! I really like LF as well but I don't think he's the man to lead our team! Time to clear house! We will have some some early round picks next year! Time to do something with them.

NEW BLOOD : I'm tired of the castoffs, speilman (3rd stint as gm, sucked) musgrave (2nd or 3rd time as oc, sucked) frazier ( no fire or emotion ) singletary ( wher the hell is he ) defense just all aroun gets out played maybe give ron wolf a call as a cosultant to hire a good gm on down to a coaching staff or maybe someone with a GOOD track record.

FIRE FRAZER !!! Ohio State just hired Urban Meyer and we get stuck with a guy that can't even throw a red flag when a TD is called he didnt get in...FIRE FRAZER NOW !!!! Havin scored and we did NOTHING .....
