JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Calais Campbell, the Professional Football Writers Asscociation defensive player of the year, has a message for Howie Roseman, the PFWA executive of the year:“The way he played this year,” Campbell said, chuckling, “the Eagles would be smart to take care of that.”Campbell is 31, but he just had his best season. He collected 14 1/2 sacks, a career high, and at times reminded you of Reggie White, the favorite clergyman of Eagles fans everywhere.
It began two years ago: a defense of a failing player by a random supporter who lived 1,000 miles north; just a lighthearted and futile effort to protect the professional reputation of Blake Bortles from the most vicious of his critics. It has become a Twitter phenomenon. The account, @bortlesfacts, is a tongue-in-helmet celebration of Bortles’ modest accomplishments, usually presented completely out of context. It caught fire as the Jaguars’ 2017 season heated up.
Blake Bortles is all of these things. At least he is to some of his opponents. Some of his peers. They’re not completely wrong. They’re not nice, and they might be overstating things, but they’re not wrong. They’re also not playing in the conference championship game Sunday, at New England. Bortles is. That’s all that matters to the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback, even if he won’t view it as validation. “I don’t think so. Personally, I do not care,” Bortles said this week.
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".
