Not that we’re going to miss him, but the Green Bay Packers canned associate head coach and linebackers coach Winston Moss on Tuesday.
Specifically, interim head coach Joe Philbin apparently made the decision. And good for Joe Philbin.
“We thank Winston for his contributions to the Packers over the past 13 years,” Philbin said in a statement. “We hope for the best for Winston and his family moving forward.”
But not really. Fuck Winston Moss.
Remember this shit show?

The Packers didn’t make Moss available to the media after that.
It has been suggested that Moss was ticked that he didn’t get the interim job instead of Philbin. Moss has interviewed for several head coaching jobs over the years. He hasn’t gotten any of those jobs. Maybe that’s because he’s a fucking prick.
Philbin, on the other hand, has actually coached another team. The Miami Dolphins.
Then there’s this.
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!

While I would not disagree with that statement in any way, it’s just more internal discord. This thing has gone off the rails, man. From Mike McCarthy to Ty Montgomery to Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to Aaron Rodgers to Winston Moss.
And do you know where it starts? It starts at the top. That’s the reason it has gone off the rails.
When is the board going to do something about Mark Murphy?
