Isn't that what happens essentially every play? Don't defensive lineman aggressively collide into offensive lineman? I can see the concern if you have guys doing extra curricular stuff, but I really don't see why this play is so much worse than any other. If you don't like so many lineman crowding the ball, than do your victory formation with 5 wide or something.
