I mean it happens SO fast down there on the field, I'm sure Paul wasn't trying to spear the guy. But yeah, it was the right call to throw the flag.

I dont believe that’s true. I believe Riley and Paul were both flagged for the defenseless receiver rule not the helmet to helmet rule. From everything ive read on the defenseless receiver rule it doesn’t necessarily matter if you hit helmet to helmet. All that matters is making “unnecessary contact” on a player who is in a defenseless position.

Although I havent seen the full rule and I dont think anyone on this board has either. See this for more info:

And Pettis crossed it BIG TIME. I'm not sure what the call was exactly but Paul smoked his ass and you have to like his effort.

Apples and apples. Even if the flag on Paul was for hitting a defenseless receiver, they could have also called helmet to helmet and they wouldn't have been wrong.

Re: Props to Pettis

Both of them were bad hits. You have to give the punt returner (classic example of defenseless receiver) time to field the ball. Even if it's just a second, you gotta give it to him. They shoulda slowed up right before they got there, made sure he had at least caught the ball, then laid the wood. And yes Niles Paul's hit was helmet to helmet, so he would've gotten flagged even if he gave the returner time.
