Darren Sproles has heard the arguments time after time, year after year, and after 11-plus seasons they still don’t hold much water. He’s too valuable in the passing and return game. And the case against more Sproles seems to always boil down to his most prominent feature. “My size,” the 5-foot-6 Sproles said Friday. “It always comes back to my size.”Some now even mention his age – 34 years old – when making the case against the diminutive running back becoming the Eagles’ workhorse.
Barring the speedy recovery of Jaylen Watkins or some unforeseen personnel switch, the Eagles’ Rasul Douglas and Jalen Mills will be the youngest starting outside cornerback tandem in the NFL this weekend. Douglas (22 years old and 24 days) and Mills (23 and 169 days) are a combined 45 days younger than the Saints’ projected starting duo of P.J. Williams (24 and 113 days) and Marshon Lattimore (21 and 125 days).
Each week this season, we’ll have an oral history of a play, trend, or scheme from the Eagles’ previous game using the coaches all-22 film. This week, we spotlight left guard Isaac Seumalo, who struggled in Sunday’s 27-20 loss at the Chiefs. On Monday, Eagles coach Doug Pederson intimated that he planned to stick with Seumalo, who played in nine games and had four starts as a rookie last year.
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".
