Packers' Associate Coach Winston Moss Got Canned Hours After Tweeting About Holding '12' Accountable, Which Was Probably His Plan All Along
I know exactly how this looks, but you don't have to read between two many lines to get the not-so-sneaking suspicion that LB coach/Associate coach Winston Moss knew of his fate before he decided to seal it electronically. With new head coaches come organizational redirections and, far more often than not, entirely new regimes. It takes quite the reverent resume to get retained, and I don't know if you've watched the Packers' linebacker play the last few seasons, but it's not exactly popping out in a pile. If his demeanor prior to a then-promising season going straight to hell in a hand basket was any indication, then he's been ready to return his borrowed time for awhile now, so I highly doubt he's shedding any tears over it getting cut short given the circumstances...
That's why I absolutely love what Winston Moss did in both cutting his losses during a losing season and continuing the narrative that Aaron Rodgers is the type of prima-donna that is beyond even the slightest of reproach in Cheesehead Country. Even if his loyalty didn't lie with the man who was just unceremoniously dismissed after keeping him employed in a replacement-level role for the last decade+, it certainly wouldn't lie with a quarterback that can do noooo wrong but is more than willing to point it out from across the room.
You can say that Winston Moss idiotically cost himself a job with his Twitter fingers, but I'd bet a dozen to your dime that he was more than happy to beat the yet-to-be-named Head Coach to the punch in offering his 4 weeks notice in the form of a disingenuous challenge. He didn't technically quit, but he certainly forced the hand of the organization by targeting '12' during such a tumultuous time in franchise history. Judging by a #thankstwitter hashtag that's probably not anywhere near as sarcastic as it reads, that's pretty close to as satisfying.
