PITTSBURGH — And now it's on to ... the offseason? A funny thing happened on the way to the Steelers' much-anticipated rematch with the Patriots in the AFC Championship. Actually, it wasn't all that funny. For the players that stepped onto the frozen turf at Heinz Field Sunday afternoon, it was a painful experience. It was an embarrassing reminder that you don't count your chickens until they're hatched.
PITTSBURGH — James Harrison made no secret of his displeasure over the fact he wasn't playing much for the Steelers this season in an interview with DKPittsburghSports.com two weeks ago, saying if he had known what his role was going to be, he would have signed somewhere else. Apparently, he didn't keep those feelings to himself among some of his teammates.
PITTSBURGH — As the NFL Draft wore on earlier this year, the restlessness of the Steelers' fans was palpable: When was the team going to select a cornerback? Not in the first round. That's where the Steelers selected outside linebacker T.J. Watt. And not in the second round. Wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was the pick there, much to the chagrin of many who felt the Steelers were passing on too many good defensive backs.
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".
