Can the arrival of new offensive coordinator Norv Turner rev up the production of the team’s sputtering running backs, particularly Christian McCaffrey? LaDainian Tomlinson, a Pro Football Hall of Famer who knows Turner very well, said that’s a given. “(Turner’s offense) is all about rhythm and timing. And really, he wants to run the football,” Tomlinson, who retired after the 2011 season and is an NFL Network analyst, told the Observer this week.
As the No. 8 overall pick by the Carolina Panthers in the 2017 NFL draft, running back/receiver Christian McCaffrey stepped into a high-pressure, high-expectation role last fall and hardly missed a step. McCaffrey, 21, finished the regular season as one of five finalists for NFL Rookie of the Year honors after recording 435 rushing yards (with two touchdowns) and 651 receiving yards (with five touchdowns).
It was a bumpy 2017 for the Carolina Panthers, and the start of 2018 has been no different. Questions still swirl about the pending sale of the franchise, but despite the inevitable shakeup that will cause, football operations must continue as if normal. The year began with a bang: Rivera fired his offensive coordinator of five years, Mike Shula, and hired the man who gave him his first big-time job in San Diego, Norv Turner.
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".
