PHILADELPHIA — Eagles coach Doug Pederson put his team right up there with the title-winning squads he was part of in Green Bay. Before this year even started. In July, Pederson compared the old Packers teams he played on as a backup to Brett Favre, teams that won it all in 1996 and lost in the Super Bowl the following year, to his current group of Eagles. He said he thought this Eagles team could be as good as those Green Bay teams.
While Minnesota travel agents are warning Vikings fans headed to Philadelphia for Sunday’s NFC title game to leave their purple at home to avoid confrontations with angry Eagles fans, Philly cops are preparing for bedlam following the game. Minnesota TV station FOX9 aired a segment this week in which one travel agent warned, “If the Vikings win, yes, I would take off any sort of like colors. I know it sounds ridiculous, like we’re almost talking about gangs here, but it’s no joke down in Philly.
The knock against socially active athletes is their off-the-field work, their anthem protests and their calls for social justice have been dubbed a distraction by the delusional. You’ve heard it for more than a year, how the movement a certain former 49ers quarterback started by kneeling for the national anthem was not welcome in the team-first NFL because football players should stick to sports and only focus on football.
@sidrosenberg@youngamazing9@nyjets Most likely a combination of all of the above, plus the head injuries and the violence of the game have been a turn off. Ratings are down in the playoffs big time and guys aren’t even kneeling.
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".
