Every game is the Super Bowl now for Ben McAdoo. It has taken him too long to figure out how to coach above the Xs and Os, above the loss of Odell Beckham Jr., to field a team New York can be proud of, a team that honors the tradition and the legacies of those who came before. One stirring upset in front of Giants fans, the first victory they have witnessed this season, doesn’t get you a Gatorade bath, or a ride on anonymous players’ shoulders.
This one has a chance to be ugly, so ugly that long before 4 o’clock, the coach of the Giants will swear his name is McAboo. These horror movies — “Silence of the Lambs” sums up the 2017 New York Football Giants — almost always end badly for someone. Flashback: At the end, the battered, bloodied and bowed 2003 Giants would finish 4-12, and Wellington Mara would explain why it was time for the Giants to move on from Jim Fassel:“The crowd is our customers,” Mara said.
In the corner of the football coffin where Ben McAdoo has been resting this season shined an unexpected beam of light, a flickering ray of hope for his survival. The team New York had expected all damn year finally rose from the grave, finally showed up with heart and fight and pride and passion and played like Giants. Not McAdead yet. McAdoo, a stunning 12-9 overtime victor, coached as if his hair was on fire: A fake punt fourth-and-1 from his 41 on the first possession.
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".
