Kyle Shanahan briefly lost the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl gameplan

Kyle Shanahan briefly lost the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl gameplan

His backpack, containing the Falcons' game plan, accidentally was picked up by Bay Area sportswriter Art Spander, frantically leading to a 30-minute search before it was returned.

Yes, the backpack included the Falcons' game plan for the Super Bowl.

That's an terrible lot on one person's football plate, but Shanahan said the impending career change has not impacted his ability to get ready for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.

Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is getting a lot of media attention this week. "I remember crying afterward when we lost and I remember crying after when they won".

Kyle Shanahan committed what could have proven to be an extremely costly turnover Monday night.

Nieto stays home as Mexico will not pay for The Wall
The talks had shown the United States side was receptive to what Mexico had to say, Guajardo said. Mexico has long insisted it will not heed Mr Trump's demands to pay for the construction project.

Quinn said Thursday that because of Super Bowl preparations, he hasn't discussed what assistant coaches might, or might not, be allowed to join Shanahan in San Francisco.

"We've got a great group of coaches, as good of a group as I've been around", Shanahan said.

The Shanahans worked together from 2010-13 in Washington as a head coach and offensive coordinator tandem.

"Ryan and the rest of the coaches were so concerned that the Patriots would go so far as to pay members of the janitorial staff to steal the information if it was left out", Cole reported.

The Falcons will face the Patriots this Sunday in their second Super Bowl appearance in franchise history. Was this a follow-up to Deflategate, when Tom Brady allegedly participated in a scheme to use purposely deflated footballs in the AFC Championship Game two years ago?
