Defensive lineman Akiem Hicks has a message for outside linebackers Isaiah Irving and Howard Jones, the two players who are expected to fill the void left by an injured Leonard Floyd on the Bears’ defense. “You got to pick up the slack,” Hicks said. “[We] got to find guys that are willing to go in there and show why they get to wear a Bears uniform. It’s an honor. It’s not just something that’s just given to you. You’ve got to be able to go out there and play hard and strong.
Adam L. Jahns’ “Inside the Huddle” column appears in game-day editions of the Chicago Sun-Times. Search for outside linebacker Leonard Floyd’s sacks this season on the NFL’s Game Pass video system and seven plays show up. One is from the Bears’ 20-12 loss against in New Orleans, though it shouldn’t be. It’s the play where Floyd leapt over fullback Zach Line in his pursuit of quarterback Drew Brees.
It was a quick stop-and-go move that represented the skid that the Bears’ defense is currently in. Lions receiver Marvin Jones beat Bears cornerback Marcus Cooper that badly for a 28-yard touchdown. It came four plays after Cooper provided receiver T.J. Jones with too much space in coverage on a 17-yard completion on a third-and-15 play from the Lions’ 9. What can defensive coordinator Vic Fangio do? “Just keep going with him,” Fangio said.
Three fines from the #Bears' loss to the Lions:
1. LB Tahir Whitehead for stepping on LT Charles Leno: $9,115
2. DE Jeremiah Valoaga for hitting QB Mitch Trubisky below his knees: $18,231
3. Guard Kyle Long for shoving DL A'Shawn Robinson away from the play: $9,115
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".
