The Miami Dolphins defensive line -- stocked with big-money veterans and top draft picks -- is supposed to be the heart of the defense and perhaps the best unit on the entire team. But it’s not. And that’s a big disappointment to you. To coaches. And to Cameron Wake. We know this because Wake was asked Friday if the defensive line, his defensive line, has lived up to expectations during the 2017 NFL season. “Absolutely not,” Wake said without hesitation. So in what way has the line failed to stack up?
Miami Dolphins coaches this week have been preaching to their players to worry only about winning one game -- Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That’s a wise approach because the Dolphins sometimes have trouble focusing as a team so setting an easy target to concentrate on is good. The goal also serves as a way to keep the focus on what is ahead and distract from the past, which is good because the Dolphins have just lost three consecutive games -- all on national television.
Remember last week when folks were drinking the Kool Aid on Jay Cutler? “Jay, really, the last two games he has played well,” Dolphins coach Adam Gase said last week. “The Jets game, that was probably one of the best games that he has had. Then this last game [against the Oakland Raiders], I think he topped it.” Yeah, so Cutler had something cooking heading into Monday night’s game at Carolina. Except he probably forgot he had something cooking and left the kitchen to go outside or something.
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".
