There has been a lot of surprisingly good action from several members of the 2017 NFL Draft class during this year's regular season and post-season. Football fans generally expect a lot from their teams' first-rounders and organizations hope they've made a selection in that round that will impact their team in a positive way (and usually as soon as possible). In 2017's class, however, there were some mixed results with just two members of the Top 10 making it into the post-season.
A lot has been said this week already about individual players on the rosters of both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Jacksonville Jaguars as the two teams prepare to face off in the 2017 NFL playoffs at Heinz Field. With both teams fighting for a dominant performance, there are several individual matchups that will be key in deciding the outcome of Sunday's game. There are some matchups that are less obvious that may have an even bigger effect.
The talk all week has been about the second act of a two-part series between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Jacksonville Jaguars at Heinz Field. Steelers fans still haven't forgotten the rare meltdown their team had against a Jaguars team many viewed as dangerous as a fluffy, newborn kitten. Over the season, that cat grew claws and sharpened its fangs on unexpecting NFL opponents.
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".
