Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Ronald Donald remembered making the same plea to his coach over and over when he was a high schooler in Maryland. It was unlike any other request Potomac’s Ronnie Crump had to consider. Crump spent his days coaching teenagers who pined for offensive glory and nagged him for the chance to throw passes, scamper for touchdowns or haul in highlight-reel catches.
PHILADELPHIA -- After Nate Sudfeld joined the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad over the weekend, several fans and reporters were quick to point out the quarterback's familiarity with the Birds' first opponent. As it turns out, he knows plenty of key figures on his new team, too. Sudfeld spent his 2016 rookie year and all of this offseason playing with the Redskins, whom the Eagles will square off against in Sunday's opener.
PHILADELPHIA -- In the weeks before Eagles training camp this summer, Marcus Johnson would wake up each day at his home in Friendswood, Texas, drive to a facility in the Houston suburb and work out for several hours. Johnson said the rigorous offseason program helped him morph from an undrafted afterthought to a serious contender for a spot on the Birds' 53-man roster. But it's been tough for Johnson to look at pictures this week of the freeway he took to get to that training facility.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
