A person should temper the urge to over-celebrate the Buccaneers’ 29-7 rout of the Bears with the understanding that Chicago is a sloppy team that turned the ball over four times in the first half and is likely to have a new head coach next season, if not sooner. But, that being said, one thing jumped off the screen at me as I studied the replay. Thursday, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer compared the 6-4, 300-pound McCoy to former Viking Kevin Williams. And he’s right.
Closing the case on the fact Chuck Pagano is firmly glued to the hottest of the hot seats among NFL coaches:His Colts are underdogs at home against a Browns team that has lost 20 of its last 21 games. Indy is one of nine home underdogs this week. So beware of the picks this week. Picking straight up last week wasn’t so difficult (12-4). Picking against the spread was a different story (7-9).
For the Vikings to reach the Super Bowl …A week ago, we stressed the need for the Vikings to showcase quality, depth and health at the cornerback position. We saw quality in Xavier Rhodes shutting down Antonio Brown. We saw good health. But the depth was lacking as the Steelers torched Trae Waynes too often. This week, we’ll stress the obvious No. 1 thing the Vikings need to have on the Road to Minneapolis: Sam Bradford playing. Without him, the Vikings are finished.
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".
