Welcome to The Prompt’s own weekly NFL Powerless Rankings, where we rank all of the things that don’t matter.

Editor’s Note: Once again Mike couldn’t find anything positive to say about the NFL this week, so instead he ranked the 10 worst…

1. Mason Rudolph

I might be in the minority here, but after watching that shit go down Thursday night I blamed Mason Rudolph. The game was over, but he was butt hurt over some late sacks and threw a temper tantrum. Myles Garrett tried to lay him down nicely! Instead of taking it like a man he tried to rip Garrett’s helmet off and instigated a fight. Once a fight starts the rules of society no longer apply, whatever happens, happens. Sure, some shit happened, but all because Rudolph was being a little bitch.

2. Myles Garrett

Honorable mention for the biggest piece of blame pie goes to the guy who almost killed someone live on FOX, the NFL Network, and Amazon Prime.

3. Philip Rivers

I can’t decide if Rivers is the worst “good” quarterback or if he just has the best stats of all the bad quarterbacks. He is SIXTH ALL-TIME in passing yards, and if he plays another season he will pass Dan Marino! On the other hand, well, just watch him play. He has a 5-6 playoff record and has never made it to the Super Bowl.

This week on Lunes en la Noche Futbol de Americano the bumbling half-wits called him a hall-of-famer. Then an hour later they watched him throw his thousandth terrible game-blowing interception. As Churchill once said of Rivers, “He is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma, with a ton of children.”

4. Booger McFarland

Speaking of the bumbling half-wits, I couldn’t let a Powerless Rankings go by without some hate for the MNF booth. Joey Tits gets the week off, today we’re focusing on Booger. It isn’t just fans who think this guy sucks, now the players are getting into it:

This wasn’t even my favorite Booger quote (Boogerism? How about just booger?) of the week! The best booger was in regards to the Chargers’ Hunter Henry: “He may not be the best tight end in the league… ’cause he’s not.”

5. Denver Broncos

Don’t let the humor of this blog post distract you from the fact that the Broncos blew a 20-0 halftime lead to the Vikings.

6. Odell Beckham Jr. Fantasy Owners

I make fun of fantasy nerds every week on the rankings, but it’s time for me to make a confession: I am one of you. I too partake in this stupid activity, trying to derive joy from a meaningless fabrication.

We all know it’s a waste of time, but still we do it… and it brings us no happiness. It is an especially somber activity for those who drafted Beckham in the first round or spent the majority of their auction budget on him.

So far this season Beckham has scored one touchdown. A single, lonely touchdown. Has he been hurt? Nope. Has he been ignored? NO. He has the 11th most targets of any wide receiver! Yet he has the same amount of scores as guys like Jeremy Sprinkle, C.J. Ham, Ben Braunecker, Monte Izzo, Troymaine Pope, and Anthony Firkser.

One of those names is made up, but you don’t know which one.

7. Tom Brady’s Receivers

As a Patriots fan, it is very frustrating to watch the team squander one of Brady’s (potentially) last seasons with an unproven group of pass-catchers. It’s basically Julian Edelman and whichever guys on the waiver wire looked good in shorts.

8. Tom Brady’s Offensive Line

It is also frustrating that the Patriots are trying to protect the GOAT with a bunch of fat sheep. Left Tackle Marshall Newhouse is playing for his seventh team in 8 years, mostly because he sucks at blocking. Given his occupation, that is a bit of a problem.

9. Tom Brady’s Attitude

With all that said, Tommy, you need to stop bitching. You’re worth half a billion dollars, and Belichick finds a way to get you to the Super Bowl every year. We all worship you, but you’ve done more with less in the past. The defense will put points on the board, just try not to get killed out there.

10. Antonio Brown’s PR Team

Great job everyone, keep up the good work!
