With Minnesota’s next Super Bowl just 11 days away, Kevin Cusick is counting down the best and brightest, and the worst and dimmest, from the past 51 games. Today, he ranks the Super Bowl’s worst teams. Super Bowl III: Few teams in any sport have underperformed on the big stage worse than these 18-point favorites. Coming off a 1967 season in which they lost only one game, they held 11 of their 16 opponents to 10 points or less.
9. 1977 DENVER BRONCOSSuper Bowl XII: This Cinderella team gave America a case of Broncomania as the Orange Crush defense led the Broncos to a 12-2 record, then two playoff victories that brought their first Super Bowl berth. Then they contracted a case of Craig Mortonitis, as the MVP reverted back to the QB who was run out of town in Dallas and New York.
Kevin Cusick takes time out from pithy social commentary to count down the top newsmakers from the NFL’s championship weekend. Breaking news: The Jacksonville cornerback is NOT “going to the Super Bowl” and is not “going to beat that (expletive).”Spent most of Sunday evening pondering which new uniforms they’ll be wearing next season. You may have suspected that the famed thespian’s opening to the AFC championship would be more entertaining than the game itself. And you would have been wrong.
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".
