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
