William Henderson, if you didn’t know, is an all-out passionate guy. This was never more clearer than during this interview with our own Jason Perone and Marques Eversoll. Asked about a wide range of questions, Henderson attacked them like an inside linebacker he was trying to clear out of a hole.

Since retiring from football, Henderson has remained in Wisconsin and has turned his enthusiasm to supporting local causes. He latest is the Wisconsin Kiwanis Clubs’ Autism Project. The project aims to buy 1000 ipads for Autistic Children in Wisconsin.

Henderson is helping fund-raise through his Sweet Frog Yogurt shops and by acting as the primary host for “The Ultimate Packer Fan Connection,” taking place on June 15th at the Stadium View Bar. Henderson as well as other former and current Packers will be there to sign autographs and meet fans.

In this interview, Henderson talks about these projects and then takes us back to the Brett Favre / Reggie White Packers with some insights you haven’t heard elsewhere.

Henderson breaks down the current Packers an then tells us…

…what he thinks was Ted Thompson’s biggest mistake.

    I agree with William Henderson that the FB position is underappreciated and that having a very good one (that is, one who can move the pile forward, catch the ball in the flat, and block) is crucial for the success of both the running and the passing games. The Ravens’ Vonta Leach has proven how valuable the FB position is. It’s difficult for me to agree with William, though, that releasing Vonta Leach was the “most boneheaded” decision TT ever made. TT has made so many that it is hard for me to discern among them. One of them was drafting Nate Palmer in the 6th round with the 193rd pick of this year’s draft when FB Braden Wilson of Kansas State was still available. As popular as he is, John Kuhn should be gone by next season and Wilson has the size, skills, determination and potential to be, like Vonta Leach is now, a Pro Bowl FB.

      As an alternative to Braden Wilson, I forgot to mention Lonnie Pryor, Florida State’s FB who was the MVP in the Seminoles’ Orange Bowl victory over Northern Illinois. Although smaller than Wilson, he is faster and could “bulk-up” 10 to 20 lbs. to be a lead blocker in the NFL. He should develop into a good FB for Jacksonville, who signed him as an UFA.

      I hope TT has the good sense to pick-up Pryor or Wilson if one of them is released prior to the season opener. John Kuhn will be a free agent in 2014. A FB still has a role in the West Coast offense.

    When I hear “William Henderson”, I -immediately- picture a reception out of the backfield, followed quickly by the first defender being hurdled by Henderson before he rumbles for another 4-7 tough yards before going down.

    That guy ALWAYS hurdled the first defender. You would have thought opposing teams would have picked up on it!!

    Great Packer.
