Helmet to helmet happens all the time & imo, can't be a penalty in & of itself.
Defenseless receiver seems to be a heckuva lot more general than helmet to helmet. I don't believe they called him for the helmet hit at all. I believe they called him for the reason cloak described... he wasn't "set" enough. Whatever they really meant... I wish they would tighten up the wording when it comes to penalties. Be consistent with what the calls are called.
