Mike Tomlin sounded the horn early Thursday, ending the Steelers' final minicamp practice and starting a five-week break until training camp kicks off a new season. When the players return July 27 in Latrobe, it will begin a six-month journey toward the Super Bowl, a destination that eluded the Steelers by one lopsided loss in New England last season.
One for the thumb has taken on a new meaning for Steelers outside linebackers coach Joey Porter this spring. Porter, who played on the Super Bowl team that brought the Steelers their fifth championship ring, can use his fingers to gauge the mistakes first-round draft pick T.J. Watt has made through three weeks of OTAs and the early part of minicamp. “As many practices as we've had, I can count how many mistakes he's had on one hand,” Porter said Wednesday.

Watt's signing came one day after third-rounder Cam Sutton signed his four-year deal. They were the last two players unsigned heading into mandatory minicamp. Watt, an outside linebacker from Wisconsin, was the 30th overall pick in the draft. He had 70 tackles, including 17 for a loss, and 11.5 sacks at Wisconsin.
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".
