Not every team can survive a key injury the way Dallas has. And as a recent study shows, not every position carries the same weight. T here are a lot of bad football clichés, but the worst might be "next man up."
International games aren't going away - and that means an increasingly skewed product for fans and teams alike W e've got one of those early London kickoffs this week. Next week, too. You probably didn't know this, because no one does - the teams playing in these games are barely aware. A 9:30 a.m.
Their fans can't predict the future, but it surely can't be any worse than the past four years After a long summer of topless championship parades, free-agency meetings in the Hamptons, Snapchat mishaps, and gold medals, the NBA is finally, truly, really, almost back.
The NFL's ratings problem is an election problem. It's a changing-technology and viewer-habits problem. Amazingly, it's even a baseball-playoffs problem. But most distressingly for the league, it's also an oversaturation problem. Y ou've probably heard a lot about the NFL's "ratings problem," but that's a relative term.
Here's how to fix the league's inflexible scheduling system - and correctly pick bad games without having to watch them T here's been plenty of talk about how the election is overshadowing the football season (and everything else).
Sorry, QBs. It's time to give some shine to the guys who really own today's NFL: the pass catchers no one can seem to stop. E very NFL position has changed dramatically over the last decade: Quarterbacks are more involved than ever; offensive linemen face a harder college-to-pro leap; middle linebackers may be phasing out of the game completely.
Guess who's back. Back again. Brady's back. Tell a friend. T he big news this week is that Tom Brady is finally returning from suspension to face an NFL team. Of course, that's not true, because he'll be playing the Cleveland Browns.
A handful of 2016's early stragglers have a lot in common with some of the NFL's archetypal flop teams. And if they keep playing like their historical comps, they're doomed. A ll good NFL teams are alike; each bad NFL team is bad in its own way.
The No Fun League is increasingly earning its nickname by legislating emotion T his week, Odell Beckham Jr. was slapped with the dreaded "distraction" label. After the wide receiver freaked out late in the Giants' Sunday loss to Washington, lashing out at a kicking net (aren't those designed to take impact?)
Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith is working to win a Super Bowl - and to get all of his teammates to binge-watch his favorite TV shows and read his favorite books Most quarterbacks worry about teaching the rest of the offense how to approach film study or third-down protections.
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
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".
