It was an appealing Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field when three youngsters on defense made their first starts, one veteran on defense played substantially for the first time and three rookies debuted as significant contributors on special teams. Kevin King, Josh James and Marwin Evans all started in a revamped secondary. Ahmad Brooks also started, and Atlanta refugee Chris Odom got his feet wet from scrimmage, too.
Green Bay, Wis. - You can talk about passing touch, command of a system and mobility all you want when it comes to evaluating quarterbacks. But when the game is on the line and you need to push the ball downfield, as the Green Bay Packers had to before a crowd of 57,272 Sunday at Lambeau Field, there is no substitute for a quarterback with a cannon arm. Defensive coordinator Ron Lynn appeared to make a fatal by misjudging Brett Favre's arm.
Bill Tobin is a link to the days of football scouting when they had to lug film projectors from college to college, write their reports rather than keyboard them and always carry a measuring tape to mark off 40 yards to time a random prospect in a parking lot or motel hallway. Tobin started in scouting almost half a century ago with the Green Bay Packers and enjoyed his four years here.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
