The rule sucks but he literally speared the guy. Have to protect defenders from hurting themselves.

Ejection is too extreme though unless it's a dangerous hit on the WR. Simple 15 yds should deter a guy from spearing period.
You'd think appreciation for your own neck would be a strong enough deterrent... But the instinct to lower your head is real. Gotta coach it out of guys at a young age.

The head is in front so what should a player lead with? Put a hand in front, dude mad e a form tackle striking the shoulder. BS call...
Nah, man. He's got to keep his eyes up. Drive the facemask into the chest/shoulder, not the top of the helmet. That's how you jack up your neck.
