The Bears evened their preseason record at 1-1 on Saturday night, notching a 24-23 victory over the Cardinals in Arizona. It took an errant pass by Cardinals quarterback Blaine Gabbert on a two-point conversion attempt with nine seconds left for the Bears to survive. And by now, coach John Fox and his staff have certainly found plenty of errors and teachable moments within the game film. Still, for a team needing to build confidence and momentum, every little victory counts.
The Bears showed promising signs in last week's exhibition opener against the Broncos. (Have you heard about this Trubisky kid?) But John Fox's squad still walked out of Soldier Field with a 24-17 loss. In order to establish themselves as a team on the rise, the Bears must soon provide evidence that they have enough talent and cohesiveness to make many more game-changing plays. Their next opportunity comes Saturday night against the Cardinals in Glendale, Ariz. Here are four things to watch.
Bears running back Jordan Howard was one of 11 players who did not travel with the team to Arizona on Friday. Howard suffered a corneal abrasion during a walk-through earlier in the day, according to a team spokesperson. And while the Bears figure it to be a minor injury, it's enough to keep their top running back out of action Saturday night for the team's second exhibition game against the Cardinals.
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".
