Honesty may be the best policy, but it's not always easy for NFL players who want to play. Left tackle David Bakhtiari was in that position last week before sitting out in Atlanta. “Extremely difficult,” Bakhtiari said. “I like to think everyone in this locker room is here for a reason, and one of those reasons is that we are extremely competitive. To have to sit back and watch, especially in that type of environment, is tough.
“No, I don't think it's that bad,” Packers cornerback Davon House said of the groin injury that held him out of practice Wednesday. After the game in Atlanta Sunday, House was jumping up to high-five fans, apparently not too concerned about the injury. But despite his lack of worry, Green Bay's trainers held House out of practice Wednesday, to play it safe. “At the end of the day, they want to make sure I'm here in December,” House said.
By now, you have no doubt heard that the Bengals are the first team since 1939 to start the season with two home games, yet score zero touchdowns. And you've no doubt heard about the Packers' defensive struggles in Atlanta. But don't forget, that defense did allowed zero touchdowns in Week 1 at home. The Packers are looking to bounce back against a Cincinnati team that will be in desperation mode at 0-2. “They are all dangerous,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “Every game is important.
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".
