Is this no foul?
Is this defensive foul?
Is this charging?
Is this a no call even tho he was hammered?
Is this a out of control offensive foul?

I would understand if he would get a charging call if he ran into the defensive players while "out of control".

Any thoughts?
What you describe is a foul on the defense.

Just because a player is out of control does not gi e the opponent license to "hammer" him.

Many times a player out of control will create the contact and an official will pass on said contact. (not call it a foul)
