BEREA — Middle linebacker Joe Schobert and weakside linebacker Christian Kirksey played all 60 defensive snaps in the opening 21-18 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Strongside linebacker Jamie Collins played 59. In a league in which linebackers are routinely replaced with defensive backs in passing situations, coordinator Gregg Williams bucked convention and will continue to do so. “Why would I pull either one of those three guys off?” he asked Friday.
BEREA — Receiver Kasen Williams, who was claimed off waivers Sunday, doesn’t expect a steep learning curve as he adjusts to a new team and new quarterback. “My style of play isn’t a style where it’s pretty difficult for the quarterback,” Williams said. “Really what it is is just kind of throw the ball up in the air and I’ll go get it. Which isn’t that difficult. “But I’m not going to sit here and say that and then say you’re going to expect me to have a great game right off the bat.
The Browns kept three quarterbacks on their 53-man roster. They have zero wins in the NFL and two years experience combined. Rookie DeShone Kizer is the starter and will be backed up by Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan, mid-round draft picks in 2016 who made the roster Saturday. Kessler went 0-8 as a starter last year and Hogan saw limited action off the bench. The Browns embraced the youth movement at the game’s most important position and don’t plan to add a veteran.
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".
