It has been a stuttering start to the campaign for Craig Levein's side, with two draws and a static performance in both games bringing criticism from disgruntled fans.
The Scotland players responded, perhaps inevitably, with a defensive approach as they voiced their faith in their gaffer and his ability to steer the country in the right direction.
There will be many who will take far more convincing.
However, Morrison, who was substituted in the matches against Serbia and Macedonia, has sought to calm the fraught nerves of the nation's supporters, who have grown increasingly restless over the past six days.
While he admits that there was a strange atmosphere at Hampden on Tuesday night, the West Brom ace has not given up hope of jetting off to Brazil in two years time.
"It [the atmosphere] does rub off on the players when it's like that," he said. "It was difficult. Being booed off the pitch is not a nice feeling as a player.
"But there is no-one in our dressing room who believes that, after just two games, it is all over for us.
"That's crazy. There are so many games and so many points still to play for. We've surprised people before, so why can't we do it again?
"It is just nonsense to be talking about the manager being under pressure at this stage. We need everyone to be moving in the right direction."
The midfielder also believes that Scotland missed the presence of Darren Fletcher and Scott Brown.
Fletcher took part in a reserve game for Manchester United this week, which suggests he may be close to a competitive return in the coming months, while Brown is being nursed through a hip injury by Celtic.
"I don't think there's any doubt that we would miss players of their quality," said Morrison.
"They play at the very top level for their clubs and they both bring a tremendous amount of experience to the team, so they were a big loss.
"But the players here are all hungry and we are determined to try and get to a major tournament.
"The quality in our play wasn't great against Serbia or Macedonia, but I still think that we are an improving side and we will get better."
Wales are next up for Scotland on Friday, October 12, and the Scots can expect a tough test from a hurting Welsh side.
Chris Coleman's men were thumped 6-1 this week by Serbia, just three days after going down 2-0 to Belgium at Cardiff.
And Morrison believes that Scotland are capable of going to Cardiff and inflicting a hat-trick of defeats on their close neighbours.
He said: "Why not? I am sure that their heads will be down.
"It will be a massive game and it is up to us to go out and show that we are prepared to fight to keep our chances alive.
"But we need everyone behind us. We didn't get the start we hoped for, but I don't think we can afford to let ourselves wallow in that."
