When C.J. Spiller reported for Chiefs training camp in July, he felt fresh and healthy. For an NFL running back on the brink of 30, that was a rare feeling. In 2016, he'd started the offseason with the Saints, but a lingering knee injury slowed him in the preseason, and he was cut in September. He bounced between the Seahawks and the Jets during the regular season but didn't stick long on either team.
San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch said on NBC Bay Area's 49ers Game Plan show, which will air Saturday, that the Niners don't need quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to play immediately (h/t Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports):"The plan is to continue to get him ready. It’s a very different system he played under. A great system, but a different system he played under in New England. And [head coach Kyle Shanahan's] system is complex for a quarterback. There’s a lot of verbiage in every play call.
Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens reached a Super Bowl playing alongside quarterback Donovan McNabb on the Philadelphia Eagles, but he would take the team's current signal-caller if forced to choose. "I'd probably go with Carson Wentz," he said in a Thursday report by TMZ Sports. "Look at what he's done, and what is this—year two? The upside for him is through the roof. He's definitely making his case for (MVP)."
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".
