Amari Cooper, if you haven’t been paying attention, has been terrible this year. Normally, sudden and unexpected struggles can be attributed to severe injuries and other off-field issues, but here, we just have a young receiver who put up consecutive 1,000 yard seasons before age 23 and cannot get open, or catch the ball when he does. That dropoff is virtually unprecedented. There have been 34 guys since 1978 to average 50+ yards per game in each of the first two seasons at age 23 or younger.
It’s been two weeks since the Cam Newton/Jourdan Rodrigue press conference incident happened, where Newton found it funny that Rodrigue asked a question about routes. Two weeks ago today, old tweets involving Rodrigue making racist remarks also came to light, and later that day, Cam Newton apologized after losing a yogurt sponsorship. Nationally, the story has largely gone away since that apology.
The expectations for Brett Hundley are low, as they often are when a team takes a gut punch and loses a star quarterback. The line for Sunday versus the Saints moved an incredibly large 10 points after the news of Aaron Rodgers’ injury. But history shows that if Hundley can just look semi-competent–and exceed expectations–then he can be in line for a big payday.
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".
