If William Henderson is the Green Bay Packers’ starting fullback, as coach Mike Sherman so adamantly contended this week, then Sherman has an unusual way of showing it.

Below is a blurb from Jsonline today on the subject.

Eric Baranczyk, a former player at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and a former college and high school coach, has joined Packer Insider to offer a weekly analysis of the Green Bay Packers. Here is this week's installment.

"I thought Vonta Leach looked really good. That opening series, he put a linebacker right on his back. Obviously, Henderson had that fumble that led to a touchdown. But on TV, he looks like he’s broke. He’s not starting. I don’t know if they gave him that ball to appease him. But woosh! That fumble was a backbreaker. And I haven’t seen any big blocks out of him. He’s not like the old Henderson: Those neck-breaking blocks where he’d just smash guys."
