When last the Falcons made a stirring playoff climb, all the way to the top of the Super Bowl 10-meter platform, where a belly flop awaited, they were without one of their defensive cornerstones. Cornerback Desmond Trufant’s chest was broken, a torn pectoral muscle to be precise. His heart was only slightly less torn. “I was living through my teammates,” he recalled. “It was hard not being out there. It was definitely difficult.
Dan Quinn, who doesn’t sound like it, is from New Jersey. The Falcons coach therefore is speaking with regional certainty when he said the road setting this weekend is going to be more difficult than the Falcons’ previous one. “I would think so,” the Falcons coach said, while preparing a trip to Philadelphia. Think about it. Where would you rather go: Santa-booing Philly or, as the Falcons did in the playoffs’ first round, every-day-is-casual-Friday Los Angeles?
He did not come out of nowhere just to inflict upon Georgia an overtime defeat in the Game of Games Monday night. But you can see it from Tua Tagovailoa’s home of Ewa Beach, Hawaii. His name does not roll gracefully off the southern tongue, and in the case of Bulldogs senior linebacker Davin Bellamy, his tormentor will forever be known numerically. “No. 13, he came in and changed the game, man. Hats off to him,” Bellamy said following Alabama’s 26-23 national championship victory over the Bulldogs.
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".
