Thomas earned this honor

Indianapolis Colts safety Shamarko Thomas was the first player to get ejected under the new league rules for a nasty hit on a Seattle Seahawks receiver.  It was a no brainer ejection.  

Thomas launched himself headfirst at a defenseless receiver's upper body.  Not only is this hit dangerous, it was completely unnecessary. 

This is how CTE is spread.  While there are going to be a lot of questionable calls this season in the NFL, due to the new league rules, this isn't one of them.

I think we can all agree with this ejection.  There are still ways to hit hard without using your head or taking off the head of your opponent.
