I just think it's inconsistent. If you hit a receiver while trying to separate him from the ball and it's even remotely helmet-to-helmet, they make the call (like the call against Wilson earlier this year). They say they made that change to protect the players because concussions were a big issue. If that's the case, then how can it be legal to lead with your helmet on a tackle? Whether it's intentional doesn't matter on other helmet-to-helmet calls---why should it there? I'm actually ok with it not being a penalty if it's consistent with other rules. But in today's NFL, where the emphasis is on protection, I don't see how that's not a penalty.
