Because I’ve had to take some time to take care of my wife, I’ve missed sharing thoughts on the start of the Seahawks’ offseason. It’s been busy and fascinating with the changes of assistant coaches. The change was much more than expected, but probably not all that surprising. The Seahawks missed the playoffs and have a lot of roster changes ahead to adjust to the salary cap and the age of the team. Let’s get into this by hitting on eight quick observations. 1. One clear voice for Russell Wilson.
There was a different feel to the Seahawks this week. Normally a team that peaks in November and December, the Seahawks are coming off two losses and face the possibility of not making the playoffs. Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys is more than a must game. O’Neil: Seahawks must show they’re not as bad as their last lossIt’s a defining game for where this team is. Heading into the season, the Seahawks had Super Bowl hopes. Once the team got past mid-season, flaws started to show.
It’s been a strange season for Azeem Victor of the Washington Huskies. He was suspended for the opening game against Rutgers. Eventually, Chris Peterson moved him from linebacker to defensive end after he had a hard time breaking through at his old position. Now, he’s finishing the season under suspension again after his arrest on suspicion of DUI. Victor’s season has opened the door for another interesting Huskies prospect, however.
This week on my podcast "SCHOOLED w/The Professor", Everson Walls (@Walls_24) joined me to talk about his final year on the Hall of Fame ballot and why he is annoyed by all these 'Diva WR's' in the NFL today.

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".
