The New Orleans Saints' surprising 2017 season is over but it won't soon be forgotten. For varied reasons, this was one of the best seasons in club history, and not just because of its surprisingly successful 11-5 record and wlld card playoff win. I expected the Saints to be good. I didn't expect them to be this good. But it wasn't just what the Saints accomplished but how they accomplished it that set this season apart and made this team so popular.
What a month it's been for Sean Payton. By my count, he's alienated the entire NFC South and is now extending his trolling campaign to further NFL precincts. If you're keeping track, in the past five weeks Payton has:If Payton is on some kind of Make the Saints Hated Again campaign, he's accomplishing his mission. He has single-handedly turned the Saints, one of the most likable group of players you'd ever want to meet, into the NFL's most despised team this side of New England.
The bad news: It still hurts him to breathe or raise his arms and will continue to do so for the next few weeks. The New Orleans Saints veteran punter suffered torn cartilage and bruised ribs on his right side while making a touchdown-saving tackle on a first quarter punt in the NFC Divisional Playoff Game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Initial reports said Morstead fractured a pair of ribs but the official diagnosis was not as severe.
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".
