One of the biggest question marks for the Miami Dolphins following last season’s first-round playoff loss was whether the culture change instilled by head coach Adam Gase would transfer over to the 2017 NFL campaign. While at first glance it would appear that the answer to that query is a resounding “no,” the truth is that those initial sentiments aren’t fully accurate or necessarily a fair reflection of the current state of affairs.
Following a disastrous 2017 NFL season, John Elway faces the most challenging offseason in his tenure as president of football operations and general manager of the Denver Broncos. That’s because, for the first time since transitioning from the field and into the front office, the Broncos failed to close the regular season with a winning record.
The Miami Dolphins closed out the season with an ugly 22-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills that was indicative of their 2017 NFL campaign. A nasty scuffle that led to multiple ejections and a turnover to shut the door on any hopes of a fourth-quarter comeback will be some of the hot topics in the coming days. After going 10-6 with a playoff appearance last season, the Fins finished the year on a three-game skid for an overall record of 6-10.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
