Sometimes in sports, you never know — not when you’re going to win again, but if you’re ever going to win again. You cannot blame Josh McCown if these dark thoughts seeped their way into his otherwise relentlessly positive soul. Because you undoubtedly had seen the numbers attached to his name like an incurable disease: He was 2-22 in his previous 24 starts dating to the 2014 season.
Week 3 is upon us, and the games will have a difficult time matching the wild Thursday night shootout between the 49ers and Rams, who won 41-39 in a thriller. Here’s a look at the High Five things to watch this week:Unheralded QB to watchIt appears time that we begin to recognize and credit Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian, who is coming off a four-touchdown performance against the Cowboys and has Denver atop the AFC West with a 2-0 record entering Sunday’s game at the Bills.
The Cowboys are playing a dangerous game with Ezekiel Elliott. They would be best-served to enable their star running back with caution. By now, you probably have seen the replay on TV or on the Internet. It was damning. It screamed the worst word an athlete — particularly in a team sport with others depending on him — can hear: quitter. The evidence was as clear and evident as that ubiquitous star logo on the Cowboys’ helmets: Elliott quit.
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".
