When the schedule was released this looked like a possible AFC Championship Game preview. That label must be looked as somewhat of a stretch now with Oakland being one of the biggest disappointments in the NFL in the first half of the season as it sits with a 4-5 record. New England, of course, is rolling with five straight victories and are 7-2. Below are five keys for Oakland in this game:Harsh? Well, sure, but there’s no need to dance around the elephant in the room.
Free-agent linebacker NaVorro Bowman and the Oakland Raiders reportedly agreed to terms Monday on a one-year deal after the four-time All Pro was cut by the San Francisco 49ers on Friday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal is worth $3 million. Bowman reportedly planned to visit the Dallas Cowboys Tuesday, but the linebacker chose to stay local with the Raiders instead, per Nick Eatman of the team's official site.
Jimmy Johnson will be part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction weekend festivities in early August. Yet he still won’t get his bronze bust. Figuratively, he should never leave Canton, Ohio. He belongs in the Hall of Fame along with Jerry Jones, the team owner during and after Johnson’s glory days as coach of the Dallas Cowboys, and his former University of Arkansas teammate. Jones will be inducted that weekend. Johnson won’t.
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".
