It was not a false start. That would have been ALL over the postgame analysis if they blew that call.
It was Illegal Motion ... which can be declined.
I see, ... I had not gone back to check the actual call. Evidently, they called Manning for moving forward at the snap? So that one is out of the way.
As the pass interference goes, it was big time obvious, but even a TD at that point would likely not have helped a horrendous offensive showing from the Broncos. The refs did allow a lot of contact between DBs and Receivers, and that helped Seattle overall, but that is usual for a Superbowl. It also would not have negated Percy Harvin placing a horseshoe nail in the Broncos coffin on his second half kick return for a touchdown.
