INDIANAPOLIS – While the mastermind is busy – you know, another Super Bowl game plan to polish up – protégés both old and new are taking their shots, anxious to disprove the notion that Bill Belichick disciples can’t win in this league without Bill Belichick by their side. Because, let’s be honest – nobody really has. Suddenly, and probably not coincidentally, the AFC South has a decidedly Belichickian vibe to it.
Five days after he buried his mother, in January 2002, Tony Dungy lost a playoff game and lost his job. He’d rescued a fledgling franchise from football oblivion, lifted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to four postseason berths in five years – more than their previous 20 seasons combined – then was coldly and promptly rewarded with a pink slip. Distraught, he mulled retirement. He weighed a life away from football. Then Jim Irsay called. He sold Dungy on a defense and a team and a city that needed him.
Maybe this is the scenario Josh McDaniels has been waiting for, as those interviews over the years began to stack up and the teams kept calling and McDaniels kept saying "No thanks," content to keep a good thing a good thing and add some more rings to his collection. Maybe it’s because he knows he can’t fail again. Everyone knows head coaches in this league don’t get a third try. Maybe all this is because of Andrew Luck.
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".
