Michael Vick thinks Colin Kaepernick’s afro is playing a role in his continued unemployment. Vick, who spent 18 months in prison for his role in a dog fighting ring and killing dogs, can probably imagine league executives sitting behind their desks perusing the quarterback market and thinking, ‘We could have one of the league’s most experienced backups at the most important position. He’s sitting right there for us.
Brian Hoyer, the 49ers presumptive starting quarterback in 2017, picked an interesting day to go on national television. Monday was the deadline for players on the franchise tag to sign long-term contracts with their teams. And many eyes have been on Washington and Kirk Cousins, who’s been linked to San Francisco ever since the team hired Kyle Shanahan, Cousins’ former coordinator with Washington, as head coach last winter.
Kirk Cousins will be the first quarterback to play under the franchise tag for two straight seasons, putting his future with Washington after 2017 very much in doubt. The deadline for franchised players to sign multi-year contracts Monday at 1 p.m. PST came and went without a deal. That means the two sides cannot negotiate a new agreement until after the coming season.
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".
