As impressive as the Denver Broncos’ win over the Dallas Cowboys was last weekend, Sunday’s loss to the Buffalo Bills was equally unimpressive. Make no mistake, however; the Broncos are a better football team than the Bills. They were before the game and they are now. And when the season is over, the Broncos will prove to be better than the Bills then, too. Wherever you wanted to look on New Era Field yesterday, the Broncos were superior. But, Sunday, they were just plain dumber.
This story originally appeared in Mile High Sports Magazine. Read the full digital edition. If experience counts for anything, the Broncos offense – a woeful unit in 2016 – should, in theory, be in good hands. Between Mike McCoy, the team’s new (and former) offensive coordinator, and Bill Musgrave, the quarterbacks coach with plenty of OC experience himself, there are a combined 47 seasons of “experience” (10 as playing quarterbacks and 37 as coaches).
Perhaps the Denver Broncos wanted badly to answer the question I posed in my last column. I asked: Who are these Broncos? After a darn good first three quarters against the Chargers, followed by one of the worst fourth quarters in recent memory, the Broncos’ identity was inconclusive. Just when we thought we had answers, the team gave us a bunch of questions to ponder. Want the answer to that question now? Hey, why not?
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".
