This one’s for you, Joe Hawley.

Here’s a look at what the Falcons had to say in the locker room Wednesday:

S Thomas DeCoud On the mood in the locker room after the loss: “I like the mood. I feel like it was kind of a wake-up call for us. We’re coming back even more hungry. We know that we have to play at our best because everybody that we’re going to play is going to be playing at their best against us. We have a new resolve to come out and practice hard, make sure we have good weeks of practice because last week, early in the week it was kind of lethargic and it felt like it kind of carried over into Sunday.”

WR Roddy White on the end of the winning streak: “We didn’t get a trophy for that one. Nobody does. At the end of the year we want to win Super Bowls. That’s all that matters to us.”

WR Tim Toone on being back with the Falcons: “I’m excited. Atlanta’s the one that gave me a shot and I kinda had bad luck. They’re giving me another shot, so hopefully I can do it justice and help us out.”

S William Moore on the prospect of matchup up one-on-one with Larry Fitzgerald: “I wouldn’t mind it, man. I’ve gotta redeem myself. I had a bad play against (New Orleans TE Jimmy) Graham last week and that’s one of those plays I wish I could take back, but at the same time, I know that’s going to make me a better player down the road. You can’t sleep on anybody, so I look forward to the matchup we’ve got this week with (Cardinals TE) Todd Heap.”

OL Mike Johnson on C Joe Hawley’s dropped passes earlier in the year and Johnson’s TD Sunday: “I had his back the entire time when he dropped his, so I felt bad for him and I was thinking, if I was in the same situation, I don’t know if I’d be able to do any better. But I came up with it. My eyes got really big during the play. I was treating it like it was a raw egg, but I caught it and made a play for us.”

DE Lawrence Sidbury on the new opportunity in front of him and whether he has something to prove: “I’m just a competitor. It’s nothing personal. I think that’s why we all play this game. Every time you go out, you have something to prove at practice and definitely in the games. It’s nothing personal against someone saying I have something to prove, but as a competitor, I want to be great. Everybody wants to be good and do their best.”

LB Mike Peterson on staying loose even after a loss: “You keep it loose, but you don’t want to get too loose. You move on, win or lose. When you win a game, you don’t pat yourself on the back, printing T-shirts. When you lose a game, you don’t want to gripe all week. You’ve got to prepare for the next week. That’s the slogan in the NFL.”
