Here's a video the Dallas Cowboys posted today of Larry Allen benching an incredible 700 lbs. It was cool to see who was in the middle spotting for him. 700 lbs? That's crazy!
Watch as Larry Allen works his way up to a 700 lb. bench press during the spring of 2001.

This man should be in the HOF by tomorrow. What a beast. From Sonoma State.
My goodness! That Mr. Allen did a whole day's worth of work in that one lift. Bennie and those other guys spotting should have gotten combat pay!
Postscript: I must say, however, that if the Cowboys are posting this from the spring of 2001 during the week leading up to the Superbowl in 2013 ... well, maybe Jerrah just needs to go ahead and take the Cowbowwows to Little Rock and be done with it. With regards to Mr. Allen's prodigious accomplishment, however, my Olden Farte tendons say, "Ouch!"

Insane that a human being can lift that much.
Who ate the other half of Nate Newton?
What's just as insane as that lift is the next video, in which a 320 lb. Allen starts flat-footed and chases down a Saints LB who was on his way to a pick-six.
I dare anyone to find a big man as fleet of foot as this:
I agree. I remember watching that and thinking that was insane. The Cowboys have had some great offensive linemen through the years, If he's not the best they've ever had, who is?
He makes every other Cowboys lineman look like Jason Glynn. He's the best interior offensive lineman to ever play and you can make a convincing argument that he's the best offensive lineman period.
Rayfield Wright is probably #1 on the list. But after that, I'd be okay with Allen at #2.
Makes me think about Erik Williams and wonder what might have been
14 plates and change
By far the best draft pick Jerry has ever made. A complete steal in the second round. After watching that; what is even more crazy is what Reggie White did to him when Allen was a rookie and had to make a start at right tackle. White bull-rushed him and literally picked him up and threw him out of his way. Craziest play from a defensive end I've ever seen. That never happened again.
Definitely the best lineman the Cowboys have ever had. Rayfield was great during his day; but Allen was on another level.
