Every July in the NFL brings a buzz for training camp but also for the newest Madden. The NFL video game hits stores just before the season revs up, and each new game is similar in so many ways to the previous -- except, of course, for the talent levels and makeups of the teams. Player ratings are the intrigue, and though the game won't hit stores until Aug. 25, those ratings were leaked Wednesday through MaddenSchool.com. The ratings are out of 100, though no player in the league scores perfectly.
MLive will chew over each of the Detroit Lions' positions heading into the start of training camp July 30. Today we hit on the defensive line. Breakdown: The Lions exited 2016 with a clear need for improvement along the defensive line, a unit that massively underwhelmed when it finished 30th in the league in sacks and wasn't tremendous against the run either. They let Devin Taylor walk, signed some rotational help and then ignored the group until the sixth round in the draft.
MLive will chew over each of the Detroit Lions' positions heading into the start of training camp July 30. Today we hit on the quarterbacks. Breakdown: No position group on the Lions roster will have less drama when it comes to finding a starter than quarterback will. Instead, the intrigue is just how permanent that starter will feel by then. The hope all along was to enter camp with a new contract between Stafford and the Lions.
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".
