Packers OLB coach Winston Moss fired same day as Aaron Rodgers tweet

Packers OLB coach Winston Moss fired same day as Aaron Rodgers tweet”

In a message sent on Twitter Tuesday morning, Packers associate head coach and linebackers coach Winston Moss questioned Rodgers' leadership and made it clear the team needs someone to come in and hold the quarterback accountable. "But again, I'm not anxious about that right now", said McDaniels. So it wasn't an easy decision, but I just didn't feel like the fit right now was where it needs to be.

The Packers released a brief statement confirming Moss' dismissal on Tuesday night.

The critical tweet that Moss posted Tuesday, when he questioned the Packers' leadership, was only part of the reason he was sacked by Philbin.

"If that's in the cards for me, then that's great", McDaniels said on Tuesday during a conference call. Those are the four things that we've got to do the next four weeks.

On Monday in the team's first extended public comments, Packers officials said Rodgers had "nothing to do with" McCarthy being fired.

McDaniels in February agreed to become the Indianapolis Colts' head coach but he soon changed his mind and instead signed a new long-term contract with the Patriots. McCarthy named him an assistant head coach in 2007 after working with Moss for five season.

However, Moss, who had served on former coach Mike McCarthy's staff since 2006, linked his tweet to the firing in a later post.

Asked what he's looking for over the final four games, Philbin said he wants his team to "play the game the right way".
