 I’m surprised that everyone says the foam collars provide no neck protection.  While I can see that they’re clearly imperfect, I don’t see how they wouldn’t help a little.

Not everyone says that, what you are getting is opinions and that’s fine. My opinion is that a proper fitting foam collar is a lot better than nothing at all.
Also my opinion the business about the foam collar only being intended to protect from collar bone fractures is flawed. If your helmet is pushed low enough to break your collar bone you probably have a more serious problem with the neck injury you just received.
