When he was asked during the week leading to Sunday’s game if he had any messages for the football fans in Mexico City, Patriots’ tight end Rob Gronkowski stayed in character.“My old message: Yo soy fiesta, baby,” he said, repeating a pseudo-Spanish phrase (roughly translated to “I am party.”) that has become a trademark of sorts for the fun-loving Gronk.It was a prophetic phrase, as it turned out.The 8-2 Patriots partied heartily on the hallowed ground of Azteca Stadium, breezing to a 33-8...
By now, every coach in the NFL will at least claim to understand and embrace the importance of special teams. But it’s fair to suggest that Bill Belichick has been ahead of the curve in that area for a long, long time.The future head coach of the New England Patriots was introduced to the inaccurately nicknamed “suicide squads” in his second year of NFL coaching when he was given the role of assistant special teams coach with the Detroit Lions in 1976.
Not every game is going to rate the thunderous orchestration, dazzling cinematography and soulful narration of NFL Films’ best productions.Some are just plain stinkers — games that have you squirming in your seat more from boredom than excitement, or if you’re home, flipping through the channels for either a better game or a good movie on a premium channel.Sunday’s 21-13 win by the Patriots at home over the Los Angeles Chargers was clearly one of the latter.
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".
