Reviving the Bench Press: Why the NFL Should Bring It Back to Pro Bowl Weekend

The Pro Bowl games will have dodgeball, tug of war, and flag football. No training camp or Illinois music festival, like summer camp for kids. The NFL’s all-star event is “Pro Bowl Games” now, not “the Pro Bowl game.” The bench-press contest should return. Orlando is not an exciting spot for the event; LA, Las Vegas, and Miami would be better. Larry Allen’s 2006 performance is one of the most memorable moments in NFL history. Showcasing the strong linemen competing in the bench-press competition would be a great addition to the Pro Bowl games.
