The NFL’s great, oversaturated Thanksgiving tradition christened FedEx Field on Thursday night. If there is any good left in this greedy world, it will be the last time the Washington Redskins -- or any other team -- host this event. The game was so bad the league should consider abolishing its third and unnecessary holiday affair, which has served as nothing more than prime time filler the past dozen years.
In the first 10 games of this traumatic season, the Washington Redskins played the NFL’s toughest schedule, and they have the hospital visits to prove it. They stunned a few good teams, found a few innovative ways to lose, and of course, they did what they do best, tormenting those addicted to them by extracting the heart of the fandom and playing hot potato with it. Followers have experienced a season’s worth of drama and plot twists, and there are still six weeks remaining.
For 54 exhilarating minutes, the Washington Redskins danced through their pain, laughed at their limitations and scared the virtue out of the New Orleans Saints. They shunned caution. They went for it twice on fourth down and succeeded. Heck, in the third quarter, they converted a fake punt from their own 15-yard line on the play after Kirk Cousins took a blow to the head and Chris Thompson broke his leg.
By the time this season ends, Jamison Crowder -- for all the injuries and difficulties he had in the first half of the year -- will probably wind up with 70-something catches for 900-something yards. It will be the best numbers of his three seasons.
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".
