NFL Playoffs: Wild Card Weekend Edition

I haven’t read the Wolff book yet. I read the New York Magazine excerpt, of course, and the Axios thing that reads just a little too dismissive, like they’re pissed that they got scooped. As can be seen, they sneer at Wolff for burning sources – and sweet Jesus, did that dude burn some sources […]

NFL Week 17: Holy Hell, is it Really Week 17? Edition

NFL Week 16: The Days Are Getting Longer Again Edition

As if by magic, just like that were back like rebels making trouble, assassins kicking ass on the double. A winning record and an overall winning percentage of 52 subtracting the pushes. No sports book alive is gonna stop us! Eh, or maybe they will. It is a game of chance after all. Obviously I […]

NFL Week 15: Meowy me, Lady Luck Edition

I certainly hope you can read this. Lord willing the page opens completely before the Super Bowl! Aw, banana oil says the straw man [1]. This is a paper tiger, right? Panic for the sake of it?

NFL Week 14: It’s Only a Game Edition

And back down to Earth we crash. Some days you’re the stick, some days the drum. As per the rules I won’t apologize for anything but I will admit that I sort of stopped caring about the outcome of the Monday night game when the Ryan Shazier hit took place. It seems trite to say […]

NFL Week 12: The Iron Bowl Is More Important Edition

Thanksgiving is upon us! A time for gathering with friends and loved ones and telling tacky jokes about putting up with distant relatives with deplorable political views. Granted, that is the unfortunate reality for some people, though I figure the average Ruthless reader has enough intelligence and self-assurance to just avoid spending time with douchebags […]

NFL Week 11: Osweiler’s Agent Edition

NFL Week 11: Osweiler’s Agent Edition It is 11:08 p.m. on Sunday night. I am soberer than I would prefer, having outdone myself on a steak-and-potato nacho bake that starched up my stomach. This created a temporary but legitimate real estate scarcity, and beer now finds itself the victim of gentrification. At this point the […]

NFL Week 10: New York or Chicago Style Edition

Pizza? War? Pizza war? Indeed, the absurdities abound as there is apparently a pizza war in effect now, raging for the soul of the National Football League. The short version goes like this: Self-made Evangelical Christian millionaire and insufferable prick Papa John Schnatter, whose underpaid and uninsured employees make the official pizza of the NFL, […]

NFL Week 9: You Will Go Blind If You Keep That Up Edition

NFL Week 9: You Will Go Blind If You Keep That Up Edition It would be classless to eat an 0-3 beat two weeks ago and brush it off as part of a process, only to come back and scream THREE AND O, BABY! from the rooftops, so you will get none of that here. […]
