It's no secret that the Saints feel they didn't author their best possible effort last Sunday in their loss to the Atlanta Falcons, and the voice of the Saints Zach Strief says he knows firsthand from his playing days that the Black and Gold can't wait to get back on the field and put that game behind them.

"Ultimately, the dynamic of it has changed a lot," Strief said. "You're playing a team that's 3-6, doesn't sit in a good standing, and coming off of a team that was in a similar situation. But certainly more than anything, for the first time you feel that there's a little bit more of a question about the division now. You have that one letdown game, and you start saying just because Atlanta and Tampa aren't playing as well as everyone else doesn't mean that we can't lose those football games. So going on the road, getting another division opponent right after that football game gives this team a chance to immediately turn that narrative around and get right back on track."

The Saints battle the Buccaneers in Tampa Sunday at noon on WWL. Our coverage starts that morning at 8am. You can hear the full audio of Strief's breakdown of the game with Deuce McAllister by clicking the podcast link.
