Last Saturday in an NFC divisional round win against the Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson drew up a simple, conservative game plan with just a few gadgets. The recipe for his team’s 15-1o win: run the ball, run some more and quarterback get Nick Foles going with easy, high-percentage passes off play-action. On Sunday, back at home against the Minnesota Vikings with a trip to the Super Bowl hanging in the balance, Pederson’s playbook completely changed.
PHILADELPHIA – Just keeping doubting the Philadelphia Eagles. At this point, they’d rather be doubted than be the darlings. Playing in their own stadium as the No. 1 seed, yet staring at the favored Minnesota Vikings, the underdog Eagles chewed up and devoured the NFC North champs on Sunday in a 38-7 NFC championship blowout that propelled the Eagles to their first Super Bowl since 2004 and third overall.
Once again, Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson pulled one over on everybody, flipping the script on the narrative that only leaning heavily on an imposing running game could propel his underdogs into the Super Bowl. Pederson sure fooled everyone, including the Minnesota Vikings and their No. 1-ranked defense that quarterback Nick Foles chewed up, devoured and spat out to the tune of 352 yards and three touchdown passes.
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".
