Tom Benson, owner of the New Orleans Saints and Pelicans, is at Ochsner Medical Center being treated for flu-like symptoms, according to an announcement from the organizations Wednesday morning. The 90-year-old Benson was recently admitted to the New Orleans area hospital and is said to be resting comfortably, per the news release. Benson is being treated in the intensive care unit.
The New Orleans Saints featured top-end talent as well as necessary depth on an offensive line that was among the best in the NFL in 2017. The offensive line is so often overlooked on good offenses, but in 2017, it was hard to ignore how great the Saints' blockers were. The Saints had three players that entered the year already among the best at their position -- center Max Unger, right guard Larry Warford and left tackle Terron Armstead.
One New Orleans Saints wide receiver became a bona fide star in 2017, but the rest of the group could've been better. In 2016, the Saints were in the discussion for best wide receiver corps in the NFL as Brandin Cooks, Michael Thomas and Willie Snead gave quarterback Drew Brees a group of unique and productive targets. Then, starting last March, the makeup of the group began to change significantly. The Saints traded Cooks and signed veteran Ted Ginn Jr. to be the new deep threat.
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".
