Philbin: Packers fired Moss for more than tweet

Joe Philbin wanted four things from the Green Bay Packers over the final month of the season, and the interim head coach didn't think Winston Moss met those criteria, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

The critical tweet that Moss posted Tuesday, when he questioned the Packers' leadership, was only part of the reason he was fired by Philbin.

"It's never about one thing," Philbin said Wednesday. "Again, I think it's important, as I said to the team, we've got to be professional, accountable, respectful and punctual. 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. It wasn't about -- again, you're talking to a guy who's never tweeted in his life, doesn't even know what Twitter is -- so again, it's not about a tweet or anything like that. I just think the fit right now isn't where it needs to be."

Philbin said defensive assistant Scott McCurley will take over Moss' duties as outside linebackers coach, and he did not name anyone to take Moss' title of associate head coach.
