You kids need a time out. Grab a Dr Seuss book and go sit in a corner for an hour.

You seem confused or are a troll of limited intelligence. A safety wasnt called until the 12 second mark of the game, with 14:48 on the clock. A false start if called would have had to have happened 12 seconds earlier. Notice the time sequence. The safety could not have happened before a false start. Just say oops and move on, no need to cling to a losing position, unless you are a media type and are pressing Manning for best ever which he is no where close.

You keep sticking to a losing position. You misunderstand what happened. NFL does not take your position. No one does. You are alone in your delusion. False starts happen at the beginning of a play, the safety happened 12 seconds later. Notice 12 seconds L-A-T-E-R, not before. NFL screws up a lot. This would be monumental. They didn't. You did. Claiming they said so is lame, it's also sad.

The premise that the penalty was a false start is a false premise.'Tis true that a false start stops a play.

Jurisprudence processes and sporting contest rules are subject to technicalities.

Research by Google does show links with 'false start', but more will reveal either illegal shift or illegal motion. I did not look at nfl.com/rules to find the difference. Seems that either can be declined, and that makes sense.

Maybe the argument could be based on the difference between 'shift' and 'motion':

Illegal motion is "called" in these sources:

[in first post]
Penalty: DEN (illegal motion declined on first safety)

http://www.pro-football-reference.com/boxscor...

Full Play-By-Play section:
1 14:53 1 10 DEN 14 Peyton Manning for no gain. Manuel Ramirez fumbles, recovered by Knowshon Moreno at DEN--8, safety. Penalty on Peyton Manning: Illegal Motion (Declined) 0

Many thanks. Went back and watched the tape to clarify. Ref called illegal motion and not false start. That's why the play was not stopped. Again, appreciate the added info. The only false start was my own for believing the initial question by an obviously messed up commenter. My apologies.

To set the record straight, you sure seem like you are a pompous ass. You said the safety happened BEFORE the penalty which is impossible and now you keep making crap up to deflect your own stupidity. Saying...as I said Manny Ramirez......which you never said.
It was the impossibility of a safety BEFORE the penalty that was the issue. You are either slow witted or a troll. Will help if you are just not gifted. Trolls we all like to bury.

Obviously you are wrong. You said you called it an illegal motion penalty. It's says right here that you called it a false start as we have said from the beginning. Own up or be known as a troll, and a not so bright one at that. First the penalty then the safety. Logic dictates it. The safety ended the play. Anything else that occurred had to have happened previously.
Gotcha.

a safety can only occur in the end zone ,that ball was almost recovered on the 1/2 yard line ... and a safety happen because Denver recovered in the end ..if Seattle did ....it would be a touch down.DUUUUUUUUUUh

the Denver center snapped the ball , but Manning was still in a set position , after the ball went by him did he re-act so in a word it was a fumble

it was a fumble
it was a fumble
it was a fumble

Your Bill Clinton type of logic only works in the halls of congress not in the real world or on a football field. The safety didn't occur with the snap of the ball all you deliriously believe. It bounced on the field of play then went into the end zone. At this point it could have been a TD for all we know. It wasn't until it was determined who recovered it that it becomes a safety or TD. Although, since you can see the future, you alone knew it was a safety. Probably the day before even. We all marvel at your time travel ability and how a safety that took seven seconds to develop actually happened right when the ball was snapped 7 seconds earlier. Kreskin has nothing on you, dimwit.
