PHILADELPHIA - Greg Ward and David Watford are practical, if not realistic, when it comes to their NFL careers. They both grew up as quarterbacks, playing it in college at major Division I college programs, but quickly realized that if they were going to make it in the NFL, it was going to be as a wide receiver. And even though that might seem a longshot, it's something Ward and Watford are approaching with hope and anticipation.
Sure, Carson Wentz will garner most of the attention when the Eagles begin training camp on Monday. Is he improved from last season? How will he mesh with new wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith? But the most important position to watch for the Eagles during this training camp will be at cornerback because there is so much at stake and so much uncertainty at a position that has long been the team's weakness.
PHILADELPHIA - The expectations are understandably high for Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. He’s coming off a season in which he set an NFL rookie record for completions, while becoming the first Eagles quarterback to play all 16 games since Donovan McNabb in 2008. Wentz led the Eagles to a 7-9 record despite not having dependable outside receivers, an inconsistent running game and a banged-up offensive line.
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".
