What do the 49ers expect from Elvis Dumervil this season? The template is Dwight Freeney, whom the Falcons signed in August of last year when they were desperate to boost a pass rush that finished last in the league in sacks the previous year. Freeney, who was 36 during the 2016 season, didn't put up big numbers. He had three sacks in 15 games to go along with 18 quarterback hurries. (By comparison the 49ers' leader in hurries last season was Ahmad Brooks with 16).
@Rlebel81 Any chance C.J. Beathard starts the season beating out Brian Hoyer? What do they have to loose? A top 5 shot at a franchise QB next year? ANS: There's a scene in "Zero Dark Thirty" in which the CIA Director wants to know how certain his lieutenants are that Osama Bin Laden is living in the house in Pakistan they've been observing for months. "A hundred percent he's there," says the Jessica Chastain character.
Kyle Shanahan is pleased with his tight ends. In fact, the 49ers coach said last week that all six are capable of making an NFL roster. “Yeah, we have some good competition there," he said. "It’s going to be tough for the coaches, but it’s definitely a good problem to have." Over the last two seasons -- when Shanahan was Atlanta's offensive coordinator -- the Falcons kept four tight ends on the 53-man roster.
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".
