Did this tweet cost a Packers assistant his job?

Packers must be wary of Josh McDaniels as head coach candidate

Packers fire Moss after tweet on coach search

Moss posted a message on Twitter on Tuesday that appeared to question that Packers leadership and quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Moss joined the Packers' staff in January 2006, a week after McCarthy was hired as head coach.

At about 8:30 Tuesday night, Moss tweeted, "The Packers have informed me that there (sic) letting me go".

"It's never about one thing", Philbin said. Those are the four things that we've got to do the next four weeks. And if we do all those things, we'll be in good shape.

"I don't really worry about the future and honestly, each week is a tremendous challenge and we try to stay in the moment and focus on the task at hand, which this week is obviously considerable considering that we haven't had a lot of success down there", McDaniels said. "We hope for the best for Winston and his family moving forward". Period! It's not the offensive guru trend, it's not the safe trend. "As you know, Winston's an excellent football coach". Find somebody that is going to hold #12 and everybody in this building to a #LombardiStandard! I've known him a long time.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft took a page out of coach Bill Belichick's media playbook when asked about the latest head coaching rumors involving offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

A longtime right-hand man to former Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy - who was sacked unceremoniously on Sunday following an embarrassing loss to the Arizona Cardinals - Moss has been in Green Bay since the 2006 season.

Personally, I think this is about much more than that tweet.

Philbin wouldn't theorize on what point Moss was trying to make with the tweet.
