Falcons mindset under Morris is to win every rep and drill to become a better team


Atlanta Falcons guard Chris Lindstrom is only in his second season in the NFL but is now playing for his second coach after Dan Quinn was fired following the team's 0-5 start this year.

Under interim head coach Raheem Morris, the Falcons have won 3 of their last 4 games as they come out of the bye week and prepare to face the NFC South division leader, New Orleans Saints.

Lindstrom joined Dukes and Bell on Thursday and said he has already seen the mindset of the team change under Morris.

"We just come in here every single week with the mentality to work and to win on Sundays," Lindstrom said. "Every single thing we're doing is competing from every rep to every drill. We're trying to win offense, defense, special teams and it's just a mindset we have with the team."

Another reason Atlanta might finally be turning the corner after Quinn was let go is seeing how they let their coach down and that goes back on them.

"I think there is an attitude and we know as players we need to do better," Lindstrom said. "0-5 is not the start you can have and we need to be better as a team and we knew that.

"I think it's a settle shift. It's not really groundbreaking because everyone here has the mindset of winning since the season started but it happened and now we're just trying to be the best we can be every week."
