Bill Belichick and the Patriots have always prided themselves on having one of the strongest special teams units in the NFL. Year after year you’ll hear Belichick stress the importance of “being strong in all three phases of the game – offense, defense, and special teams.”Tom Brady has been handling the offensive side of things just fine for quite some time, and while the defense has been less consistent over those years, it usually seems to show up when needed most.
If it seems like the bye week always comes at a perfect time for a respective football team, it’s because it does. With the physical toll these players take on a weekly basis, the bumps and bruises add up quickly. That’s certainly the case with the Patriots as they’ve already lost a couple key players for the season, and try to manage the injuries of others along the way.
It was the rematch everyone had been waiting for between last year’s two Super Bowl teams, the Patriots and the Falcons. While the outcome was still the same – a Patriots win – the way in which the Pats and Falcons got to that point was much different than it was in Super Bowl LI. There was no historic, improbable comeback needed by the Patriots Sunday night in Foxboro. Not even close. The Falcons never led, and as the game went on, never threatened to make things interesting.
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".
