The Eagles and their fan base are feeding big off their "underdog" mantra, and the oddsmakers are serving extra helpings, immediately installing the Patriots as uncommonly big favorites to win Super Bowl 52. So the Eagles haven't had to manufacture a “nobody believes in us" theme as most teams do. They earned this. And they’ve earned the belief that they can pull it off one more time.
After everything that unfolded this season, the NFL got its two top seeds into the Super Bowl, and arguably its top two Most Valuable Player contenders. The Patriots made it, dragged by the stitched-up hand of Tom Brady, one of the MVP favorites. The Eagles made it, too, despite losing their MVP candidate, Carson Wentz, back in early December.
By now, what doesn't everybody know about the gulf between the Patriots’ postseason history and that of the Jaguars, their AFC championship game opponent? The answer, of course, is, nothing … but it can't be repeated enough. If the Patriots move on to the eighth Super Bowl of the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady era (and their 10th ever), it would be a fully-expected validation of their dominance. If they don’t, it would assure that the magnitude of the Jaguars' achievement can never be diminished.
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".
