Sometimes you just have to work with what you got. The New York Jets are basically just trying to survive this season. They're 0-2 on the year so far, the offense is stagnant, and the defense hasn't been able to stop much of anything. Now, the team is working to at least add some talent to the roster. According to reports, the Jets have signed veteran defensive end David Bass, who was last on the Seattle Seahawks for the first few weeks of the season.
The New England Patriots have fully recovered from their disappointing Week 1 home loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Tom Brady and Co. took to New Orleans this past weekend and decimated the Saints, reminding the entire league that while the Pats were vanquished to start the season, they are still the same high-powered team at their core. Unfortunately, they did see some injuries occur in that pivotal win, including to star tight end Rob Gronkowski.
The Saints have to do SOMETHING at this point. New Orleans sat back and watched its defense get ripped apart by the likes of Tom Brady and his injured receiving corps this past weekend. No matter how many points the offense puts up, if the defense can't even get one stop, it simply won't matter. Now, the Saints are trying to make moves to give themselves a better chance on that side of the ball.
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".
