Some things to know about linebacker Rey Maualuga, who signed with the Dolphins over the weekend:• The run-stopper the Dolphins need? When Maualuga, 30, was released by the Bengals in March, he had started all but 10 of his 114 career games and made 343 tackles. The Cincinnati Enquirer pointed out he was “one of the primary weapons in stopping the run.”The Dolphins were 30th in the NFL against the run last season.
MIAMI GARDENS — It says something about Davon Godchaux that the day he came home from basketball practice and found his home riddled with bullets, he still could find a positive. “I saw that, I said, ‘Man, it’s crazy. God blessed me not to be here,’ ” Godchaux said. Being home that day would have been the classic case of wrong place, wrong time, which brings us to the right place and the right time of Davon Godchaux’s story.
MIAMI GARDENS — Performances don’t get more uneven than this, even by preseason standards. Following the Dolphins’ 31-7 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night, Adam Gase and his staff will have plenty to chew on. The good, the bad, and a whole lot of ugly:Jay Cutler’s debut must be judged in context. His stats (3-of-6, 24 yards) might not excite anybody, but outside of one throw into double coverage, he looked like the veteran he is, not the ex-broadcaster he also is.
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".
