"It's never about one thing", Philbin said Wednesday, per ESPN's Rob Demovsky.
"Ponder this... what Championship teams have are great leadership!"
Moss joined the Packers' staff in January 2006, a week after McCarthy was hired as head coach. "Again, I think it's important, as I said to the team, we've got to be professional, accountable, respectful and punctual. Period! It's not the offensive guru trend, it's not the safe trend", Moss wrote Tuesday morning. Find somebody that is going to hold #12 and everybody in this building to a #LombardiStandard!
"We thank Winston for his contributions to the Packers over the past 13 years", Philbin said.
ESPN's Jason Wilde notes Moss was not fired directly because of the tweet, but noted the tweet may have hastened Moss' departure, though.
"Yeah I think it's important obviously that everybody's on the same page, that we're all moving forward in the same direction".
But you always want to be able to trust your head coach, and after what went down with the Colts, the only people that should trust McDaniels are Belichick and Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
McDaniels is certainly worthy of consideration for the head coaching vacancy; he's an offensive football wizard, and his resume in New England working under Belichick speaks wonders.
Philbin wouldn't theorize on what point Moss was trying to make with the tweet. I've known him a long time.
Moss's departure comes just two days after Green Bay fired coach Mike McCarthy and the Packers' loss third consecutive loss came at the hands of the 3-9 Cardinals on Sunday. Respect him; outstanding family man.
