In the NFL, there is a strong correlation between victory and third-down efficiency. This season, teams that converted over 45 percent of their third-down attempts are a combined 41-14, while the lone team that converted less than 30 percent on third down is still searching for its first win. The San Francisco 49ers are near the bottom of the NFL ranks in third-down efficiency at 34 percent — nearly 10 percent less than head coach Kyle Shanahan’s 2016 Atlanta Falcons.
Although the 2017 San Francisco 49ers have been an inconsistent offensive team, a few things have been consistent during their nine-straight losses: penalties, turnover differential, red-zone scoring percentage and third down conversation rate, as the Niners ranked near the bottom of the league in all four categories. In Sunday’s matchup against the New York Giants, the 49ers excelled in one of those categories — third down conversation rate.
On Monday’s Locked on 49ers podcast, Brian Peacock handed out six game balls to the San Francisco 49ers after their first victory of the 2017 season:Shanahan waited 10 weeks for his first victory, and received a mini-Gatorade shower for his efforts. Shanahan — still a player favorite — hasn’t lost the 49ers’ locker room, and looks to soon add to his head-coach victory total. Colbert — a seventh-round rookie — filled in admirably at free safety for injured safeties Jimmie Ward and Jaquiski Tartt.
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".
