Fans talk about Hundley's first start

GREEN BAY, Wis. -

Fans didn't know what to expect from backup quarterback Brett Hundley as the Saints marched in to Lambeau Field Sunday.

 

Kevin Self and his friends held a sign near the Oneida gate, with a picture of “Hundley” from the cartoon series “Curious George” and the words “in Hundley we trust” printed across.  

 

           

"I think he's going to do real well. He'got all the mechanics to be a leader and take us to the playoffs,” Self said.

 

The green and gold led the Saints at half time, in part because of a Hundley touchdown. It went south after that, but some just call it first game jitters.

 

"Big shoes to fill, and I just think with his background, he's able to, I think he'll be okay,” said fan, Joel Kuhl.

 

He’s trying to make Hundley’s jersey lucky number seven.

 

"Brett's been around long enough that, you know I got faith in him and I want to support my faith,” Kuhl said.

 

 

Several fans at Lambeau say they're not worried about Hundley. They looked at the history of quarterbacks including Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers and say there's good leadership in the system."

 

"I think it's a great opportunity for Brett to come in, he's got his opportunity and I think he'll lead the team and do good things,” Self said.

 

Especially in a city that's spent decades cheering on a different Brett as quarterback.

 

"We've had a lot of experience yelling the name Brett, it's pretty cool,” Self said.

 

Some fans told us they're upset after the loss, but hope Hundley can regroup and come out even stronger after the bye week.
