Week 1 of the 2017 NFL season, the Chicago Bears looked like one of the most improved teams in the NFL, playing the defending NFC champion Atlanta Falcons to a virtual standstill before losing in the closing seconds of the game. In Week 2, the Bears looked like a contender for worst team in the league, embarrassing themselves on offense and making more than enough mistakes to hand a game to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that should have been as competitive as the Falcons game.
CHICAGO – So how good are the 2017 Chicago Bears? Apparently just good enough to lose on the last play of the game to one of the best teams in the NFL. That’s why I was so intrigued when I heard what Falcons quarterback and reigning NFL Most Valuable Player Matt Ryan (above, left) said after the... CHICAGO – So how good are the 2017 Chicago Bears?

CHICAGO — Can the Chicago Bears beat the Atlanta Falcons Sunday at Soldier Field? What were the odds on Kansas City knocking off the Patriots Thursday night in Foxboro? The problems for the Bears, of course, are that Mike Glennon doesn’t appear to be Alex Smith and Chicago has no receivers likely to imitate Tyreek Hill. On the other hand, the Chiefs have no one to match Jordan Howard, and I’m not positive Tarik Cohen won’t have a few Kareem Hunt moments before the season is over.
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".
