No matter how many hires from the Bill Belichick family fail, they will keep happening because everyone wants to be the New England Patriots and wants to believe some of that Belichick-ian magic will transfer. The Tennessee Titans brought in Jon Robinson two years ago to be their general manager – from Tampa, but he spent most of his career with the Pats – and on Saturday he chose another member of the Pats family to be his head coach.
Taylor Lewan picked up 1-month-old Wynne Rebel Lewan and leaned her forward, his left hand on her belly. A grueling day of Tennessee Titans training camp had just ended and now Lewan was demonstrating the most important technique he learned in the offseason. “Burping is my least favorite thing, but if you don’t do it, you’ve got issues,” Lewan said. “I do this and I motor her legs, get her farting up a storm.
Those were the first three words out of Titans general manager Jon Robinson’s mouth Monday when asked about the qualities he’s looking for in the head coach he’s trying to find. It was an interesting choice because, of all the things the exiled Mike Mularkey is alleged to have screwed up in his two winning seasons, that’s not one of them. The Titans played for him and played for each other, going 19-15 in the past two seasons with the franchise’s first playoff win in 14 years.
@jeshaffer@bamabrad1970@boilerbob77 No, I don’t have an issue with people being fired when they don’t make the playoffs and such. There’s ample opportunity to fire coaches in this league. Hopefully for the Titans, Vrabel lifts them from here to a better place.
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".
