FOXBOROUGH -- Along the way to the NFL, Adam Butler once encountered a coach who, in his estimation, had acted disingenuously. So here's what he did: At 2014 SEC media day, Butler, then a sophomore at Vanderbilt, went the opposite route when asked about former Commodores coach James Franklin. About as genuine as it gets. "I don't want to say I'm glad coach Franklin is gone," Butler told CBSSports.com, "but then again I am."
NEW ORLEANS -- No, Malcolm Butler did not get benched in Sunday's win over the Saints. He played plenty, even before Eric Rowe exited with a groin injury. But Butler's streak of 38 consecutive starts was snapped. And for the first time since he opened the 2015 season shadowing Antonio Brown, Butler was not part of the team's base defense.
New England Patriots rookie defensive end Derek Rivers underwent knee surgery Tuesday morning, according to a source. Rivers suffered a non-contact knee injury during an Aug. 16 joint practice with the Texans in West Virginia. The injury occurred during kickoff coverage drills. While early tests reportedly provided optimism, further testing revealed a torn ACL in Rivers' left knee, per multiple reports. The surgery comes nearly a month after the injury, but this timetable is not uncommon.
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".
