In the Redskin-Packers game Thrash was called for illegal motion but he was the man in motion for that particular play can you explain that call?

I didn't see this particular call, but here a few possibilities. The player cannot move toward the line of scrimmage at the time of the snap. Also, if more than one player goes in motion, one must be completely "set" in their new position at the time of the snap.

In that particular play, Thrash was the only man in motion, but did not get set before the play was snapped. Meaning, once a player is in motion and they turn towards the line they have to stop and get set for 1 full second before the ball is snapped. In this play Thrash was in motion, turned and stopped, but just as the ball was snapped and that is illegal.
