The New England Patriots came out of Week 3 with a 2-1 record, but with it, they might have more questions than answers. Like, can the offensive line protect Tom Brady from a top-tier pass rush? Is the defense even passable? Was Stephon Gilmore worth all of that money? Did Malcolm Butler regain his form? Were the Patriots aware Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson is quite athletic? And when did Tom Brady turn into the best deep passer in the NFL?
New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has spoken to the media twice since 18 of his players knelt during the national anthem Sunday before their 36-33 win over the Houston Texans. Belichick held a news conference after the game and was asked about the protest, the first of its kind for the Patriots during the anthem. In Week 1 of the 2016 NFL season, Patriots safety Devin McCourty and tight end Martellus Bennett raised a fist after the anthem.
President Donald Trump lost a supporter in former NFL head coach and ESPN analyst Rex Ryan. Ryan spoke out on ESPN regarding Trump’s recent comments about the NFL and its players. Trump has encouraged teams to release players who protest and fans to boycott the league until they do. “I’m pissed off,” Ryan said. “I’ll be honest with you, because I supported Donald Trump. I sat back, and when he asked me to introduce him at a rally in Buffalo. I did that.
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".
