flagrant include, but are not limited to:
1. Illegal helmet contact against an opponent lying on the ground,
2. Illegal helmet contact against an opponent being held up by other players,
3. Illegal helmet-to-helmet contact against a defenseless opponent.

The QB is often defenseless when he is throwing the ball.
If you would not have flagged this tackle had there not been helmet to helmet, then you can't call this RFP or flagrant IHC.
