What he said: Falcons go to Tokyo

Here are what some of the Falcons' players had to say before flying to Tokyo for thier game against the Colts.

"I think going to Tokyo will be tremendous. I have never been to that part of the world, so I can't wait to go." – Rookie linebacker Jordan Beck

"I'm looking forward to it. Right now that's my main focus – I'm going to treat it like it's a practice and get better. I'm going to go out there and give it my all." – Rookie defensive lineman Darrell Shropshire

"Going to Tokyo is a great experience. A lot of guys have never been over there and never thought they would have an opportunity to go over there. It's always great to play a game; we have been practicing against each other for a whole bunch of days now. To see another color jersey – that will be a good thing." – Cornerback Keion Carpenter

"I think it's going to be good; we are going to get to work against a different team. We get to play an extra game and get some extra reps – especially me. I will get some extra work. It will be nice to get out there and get some looks against another team." – Second year back-up quarterback Matt Schaub
