The closest thing to crazy back then was the Cowboys OL standing up in unison and then setting, but even that had a clear stopping point at the bottom before they snapped the ball.
The Texans sent video of Manning and the Colts asking why they were not being flagged. The league basically said Manning gets to do what he wants. Total BS.
They also used to have multiple WR, TE or RB moving in to hear Manning at the same time which should have drawn flags as well.
