Choosing the top three quarterbacks in the NFL’s modern era wasn’t easy, but it was a lot of fun, and we can’t wait to see how you vote. As for my thought process in selecting Tom Brady, Brett Favre and Dan Marino, I decided I wanted my team to have the greatest winner, biggest tough guy and best pure thrower comprising my QB depth chart. With the contest name, “Team For The Ages,” how could I not begin with the seemingly ageless Brady?
It was another wild Friday afternoon/evening in the NFL. Within hours of the Chicago Bears moving quickly to match the Packers' offer sheet for Kyle Fuller, a flurry of activity occurred, headlined by former Arizona Cardinals All-Pro DB Tyrann "Honey Badger" Mathieu signing a one-year deal with the Houston Texans. Mathieu, 25, can earn up to $8 million on his one-year deal, according to the Houston Chronicle, after being released by Arizona just two years into a massive contract earlier this week.
Cleveland Browns GM John Dorsey arrived at his new post in a serious position of power thanks to the wheeling and dealing and cap preservation of Sashi Brown, who handed his replacement one of the richest offseason war chests ever. Dorsey now also has Indianapolis Colts GM Chris Ballard to thank, as the blockbuster trade sending Indy's third overall pick to the Jets in exchange for No. 6 overall and three second-rounders means the Browns just might have their cake and eat it, too.
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".
