PHILADELPHIA — It was as if 46 Eagles had sprinted up the famous 72 stone steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, thrust their arms triumphantly skyward in a scene from the movie … Flocky. And at the top of the steps, ripping off a dog mask, would be Nick Foles. It was late in the second quarter when he held the ball, held the ball, held the ball, kept his eyes downfield and escaped Vikings grabbing and clutching at him.
PHILADELPHIA — Pat Shurmur won’t be calling plays for Case Keenum against the Patriots in Super Bowl LII now, won’t be calling 7 Heaven for Stefon Diggs, and if he gets back to the NFC Championship next year, it will be as head coach of the New York Football Giants. For Shurmur, the lone silver lining in the cloud that covered the visiting locker room on Sunday night after Eagles 38, Vikings 7, was that the Giants are now free to make his hiring official.
PHILADELPHIA — When you’ve forever been held hostage inside Heartbreak Hotel, when you’ve never won a Super Bowl, gotten there twice and lost to Jim Plunkett 37 years ago and Tom Brady 13 years ago, and you lose your MVP quarterback and find yourself 60 minutes from Super Bowl LII with your backup quarterback anyway: You cling to the belief that maybe, just maybe, your Eagles can be Destiny’s Darlings, finally.
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".
