When NFL players get released on no notice and it catches them off-guard, they usually resign themselves to reality. The NFL is a business. When a NFL head coach gets axed, they say the same thing. “It’s a business.’’Mike Mularkey had to know something was going on before his was fired. He has been around the league long enough to know you’re never safe, even if you take a team to the postseason’s wild card and divisional round.
It has often been said that to be the best, you have to beat the best. New England proved they are the crème of the NFL crop. They have the numbers to prove it. They added more postseason records as the Titans could only watch until the final 35-14 score was in the books. The Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady showed he stands above all. He threw his 10th career postseason game with three touchdown passes. He broke the tie with Hall of Famer Joe Montana who had nine postseason TD passes.
The minute the Titans were named to play the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots in the NFL playoffs, the Titans were widely pronounced as a heavy road underdog. The Titans didn’t even have a chance to enjoy upsetting Kansas City on the road. The Vegas betting line made the Patriots a 13½-point favorite. That number was out Monday and it has not budged 24 hours before Saturday’s game.
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".
