While this may have not specifically led to his firing, it sure didn't help Winston Moss stay in the good graces of interim head coach Joe Philbin in Green Bay.
And sure enough, after firing off a questionable tweet, he ended up getting canned roughly nine hours later. The veteran Packers assistant coach took to Twitter on Tuesday to voice his displeasure with the team, calling out the staff and Aaron Rodgers.
Not a great idea.
Ponder this... what Championship teams have are great leadership! Period! It’s not the offensive guru trend, it’s not the safe trend. Find somebody that is going to hold #12 and everybody in this building to a #LombardiStandard! Period! #losingsucks!— Winston Moss (@Insanecane99) December 4, 2018
Going after Rodgers, the face of the franchise and one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game, was the worst idea possible for Moss.
The associate head coach/outside linebackers coach had been with Green Bay since 2006. In his 13 years with the squad, he saw plenty of success coaching alongside former Packers head man Mike McCarthy.
I have serve the Packers with all my heart and soul. I’ve given it my all. no regrets!— Winston Moss (@Insanecane99) December 5, 2018
Moss is clearly a passionate guy, and though he made it clear he had no regrets regarding his tenure with the team, many out there ARE questioning his thinking in putting the team leadership and Rodgers on blast.
Now that he's unemployed, he'll have plenty of time to think about that.
