Former coach Winston Moss takes another jab at Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers
The Green Bay Packers have been the talk of the league this past week with the departure of former long time head coach Mike McCarthy.
Although McCarthy brought an unbelievable amount of success to the Packers, the decision to part ways was a decision that may have been the most necessary one. According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, former assistant coach Winston Moss joked on Fox that “Aaron Rodgers has been the head coach of the Packers for the last nine years.” Moss added, “I’m just joking.”
Moss may be saying he’s joking but the Packers former coach was basically shown the door at the same time that McCarthy was fired last week.
Aaron Rodgers is one of the most impressive players the league has ever seen. Unfortunately, it was growing increasingly clear that is McCarthy didn’t go, things were going to be very uncomfortable for Green Bay’s star player.
Moss may be a little bitter about how his departure from Green Bay came together and it’s fair that he feels that way. There has been a lot of speculation that Moss’ “joke” is true. This season especially considering there were claims that Rodgers would often changed plays called by McCarthy.
Whatever the case may be between Rodgers and McCarthy, things were not working out and the Packers have been having arguably their worst season with Rodgers as their starting quarterback. Moving on from McCarthy and starting a new era of football could be exactly what the proud franchise needed to do.
