Forgive me for being uncomfortable. This is my first time on a psychiatrist’s couch. Psychiatrist: No problem. Just tell me what you’re feeling. Me: Well, I’m excited, stressed out, and also depressed. I somehow advanced in my fantasy football league playoffs, but I lost my quarterback, Carson Wentz, to a season-ending knee injury. I guess I should be happy I’m still alive, but I’m not sure what to do at QB, or even other positions that could be affected.
Tom Brady can do anything, right? He can be the greatest quarterback ever. He can be a model. He can marry a model. He can star in an acclaimed blockbuster. (OK, so maybe “Ted 2” wasn’t acclaimed). Is there anything he can’t do? Well, the Madman might have found that one thing Tom Brady isn’t good at: teaching. Let’s take a walk past those neophytes who have worked under his tutelage in the past: Damon Huard, Matt Cassel, Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett, Jacoby Brissett.
Remarkable achievements are remarkable because they don’t happen often. This also makes them quite hard to predict. If you make a habit of predicting things that never have happened before to happen for the first time, if you’re trying to foretell an outlier, you’re going to be wrong almost all the time. Never before has a player returned from a three-year absence brought on by suspensions and a battle against addiction like Josh Gordon heading into Week 13.
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".
