A couple of big 'ifs' surround the happenings and eventual fallout from Sunday's Super Bowl XLVI. And both involve the starting quarterbacks. Here’s some relevant stuff to ponder — if Eli Manning wins his second Super Bowl title, in what has been an exceptional season, does he surpass brother Peyton on the QB greatness chart? If Eli wins, that’s one more crown than Peyton.
After tying a franchise-best win streak at four games, the Houston Texans sit atop the AFC with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Quite an accomplishment, and testament to the notion that - if all continues to unfold at this clip - Gary Kubiak merits serious consideration as NFL coach of the year. Kubiak was on thin ice heading into the season. Playing put-upon little brother to Indianapolis's big brother seasonally didn't sit well with ownership. What Kubiak's accomplished this season is remarkable.
OTTAWA — Canada will stick with what it knows at the upcoming CONCACAF Round 2 qualifying matches for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. On Thursday, head coach Stephen Hart introduced his 19-man roster for Canada’s first two qualifiers. Hart will employ 16 players that were on the Canadian team at the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

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".
