P.J. Fleck finally, mercifully, made a quarterback change. Based purely on football terms, it was overdue. Conor Rhoda didn’t perform well enough to keep the job. Simple as that. Now it’s up to Demry Croft to show some maturity, act like a leader and see if he can fix an offense that became painfully one-dimensional with Rhoda at the controls.
The mood in the Green Bay Packers locker room late Sunday afternoon was part somber, part resolute, with some Stuart Smalley-like affirmations mixed in. “I have faith in our team,” offensive guard Lane Taylor said. The Packers tried to wear a brave face on a franchise-shaking day, but human nature knows better. Losing a player of Aaron Rodgers’ ability and stature can’t be brushed off like lint on a winter coat.
â€“ Sam Bradford should not have been on the field Monday night. Not like that, not in that condition. He didn't look healthy enough or sharp enough to be an effective quarterback, which was obvious from his first pass, which sailed over the head of Stefon Diggs. Typically, Bradford makes that throw in his sleep. Bradford returned as the Vikings' starting quarterback in a 20-17 victory against the Chicago Bears after missing three games because of a flare-up in his surgically repaired left knee.
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".
