As we continue to look back at Super Bowl LI, it's probably safe to say at this point that no one had a worse Super Bowl week than former Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

Shanahan's week got off to an ugly start at Opening Night when he lost his backpack. At the time, Shanahan didn't offer many details about the missing backpack, except to confirm that the Falcons offensive playbook was in there, which means the incident could've definitely turned into a disaster if the backpack had ended up in the wrong hands.

As it turns out, the Falcons' playbook, which was on an iPad, wasn't the only valuable thing that went missing that night: Shanahan had also been carrying around $30,000 in Super Bowl tickets in his backpack.

Why bring $30,000 in Super Bowl tickets and your offensive game plan to a large public gathering? That's a great question to which we'll probably never the the answer.
