for powerlifters i'll sing a different tune! no way would i crawl under all that weight without holding on to it!
EDIT: also who the hell presses over their throats unless they are unracking/reracking. being a football player who is obviously experienced in traing should be more careful! but i so understand **** happens!

So you guys saying thumb less grip is not good. I use this technique all the way up to my heavy set of 4-5 x 315lbs. I never had an issue. I do it because of the stated uses with the wrist. Guess I better start doing more dumbbell lifts.

This can happen even without a false grip. If the bar drifts up toward your head, the weight transfers from your chest to your front delts and you can lose it pretty quick. About 6 years ago, I was bench pressing in a meet (wearing a bench shirt unfortunately), and I had 430 lbs. drift up toward my head. The side spotters were daydreaming, and the head spotter had cleared the area so that the judges could see.
Lucky for me, I was "in the flow" and time slowed down for me. I was able to guide the bar to rest on my chin, which quickly dislocated. The spotters jumped in in time to save my life, but it wasn't pretty

I'm just glad it didn't kill him. Easily could have though, especially on the throat.
