One upon a time not too long ago, Hall of Famer and founding father of the 21 Club, Deion Sanders, said, “This Denver D flat out balled today.” His statement back then during a post-game segment on NFL Network would again be an accurate depiction of what happened in Sunday’s 42-17 victory over the Cowboys. Take this for data: The Broncos defense held Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott–last season’s league-leader in yards rushing—to eight yards on nine carries.
What is it about the Broncos opening their season at home in primetime that makes opposing kickers miss last-second field goals aimed at the south goal posts? A shade over a year after Carolina Panthers kicker Graham Gano missed the game-winner, Chargers kicker Younghoe Koo had his game-tying field goal attempt blocked at nearly the same spot on the field that gave the Broncos a 24-21 victory after a late Chargers’ surge.
The Broncos spent the bulk of their money rebuilding the offensive line, a must for them after last season. The disastrous play on the line, in part, stalled their run game and left their quarterback, Trevor Siemian, with a shoulder sprain that required surgery in January. The retooled and bigger line has shown flashes during the preseason of what this offense can do when it’s in sync.
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".
