Saints quarterback Drew Brees met with local media Tuesday, as the Saints conducted media wrap ups of the 2017 season. Brees is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March, but he says he hopes to have a new contract with the Saints done before then. Here is Brees with reporters Tuesday morning. Brees said he wants to continue to prove head coach Sean Payton correct for taking a chance on him 12 years. Brees recounted a phone call he got from Payton as rehabbed after shoulder surgery.
The Saints couldn’t not have drafted much better in 2017. And, now all they have to do, is do it again. The 2017 draft yielded the likely rookies of the year on offense (Alvin Kamara), and defense (Marshon Lattimore). Head coach Sean Payton said the Saints improving on defense is a top priority heading into the offseason. He made the comments at his end of the season news conference Tuesday, one that lasted all of 9 minutes.
Eight years after some bad postseason luck against the Saints, the Minnesota Vikings got some football karma in return. Case Keenum’s 61 yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs on the final play of the game reversed a pattern of bad Vikings luck in the playoffs. Minnesota has had more than its share. A missed field goal by Gary Anderson, his first of the season, was the difference in a three point Viking loss at home to Atlanta in the NFC championship game in the 1998 season.
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".
