08:00 AM ET 01.23 | This may yet wind up being a flip-flop for the ages. A double-reverse, pass. A game-changer. Chip Kelly, gone to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, then, suddenly, trotting back out the tunnel at Autzen Stadium tugging on his visor as if nothing happened. If Sunday night made a sound, I'm thinking it would be "Swoosh." We weren't fooled. We weren't lied to. None of us. Not a one. Just all left wondering what happened, who played the parts, and how it is that Kelly went from gone to back again. Because one minute credible sources told multiple news outlets --- national and local --- that Kelly's deal with the Buccaneers was a done deal, and then, the next, the same sources were insisting you'd heard right: Kelly changed his mind.

A double reverse often does work against the Bucs.

So, it's a Chip off the old Bucs?

"If Sunday night made a sound, ..."

So, this is how reporters in Oregon spent Sunday night? Might as well, nothing else going on in football, right? Just a couple of meaningless games.

Revenge will be sweet.

Otis, a lotta these suckers on this site need to really just shut up. As I have said before, I value and respect your opinon. Tell me Otis, when the Giants beat the Brady/Pats and Eli is 2-0 aginst them, and if he just happen to win the MVP which will be his 2nd, exactly what should these clowns on this site say then? My friend its simple, Eli's body of work dictates that he is indeed elite and the Giants are stuff of legends period. 75% SB record (3-1), 5th SB speaks volumes, and Eli..........I just can't say enough about'em pal.

Just the 5th SB for the Giants? Pats are in their 7th.

It's those dang cannons they shoot off in Tampa when they score. Ducks hate the sound of gunfire.

Yeah but do you really want to remember the first 2? Most Pats fans want to forget they happened

The Pats also have a 50% (3-3) and a lost to the Giants and are starrin another lost in the face pal, so we'll see whatcha sound like in two weeks. Brady Vs Eli, 0-2 Vs 2-0 is what it'll look like buddy!

Mmmm.... deep stuff there. I have this odd feeling that if the Giants lose in a couple of weeks, this alter disappears, never to be seen or heard from again.

Haters are gonna hate... but even the haters have to acknowledge that Eli is one tough hombre.

He got pounded yesterday. Over and over and over... and just got up, wiped the mud off and went to work again.

I openly admit that I am an Eli fan. He is an elite QB in the NFL right now.

Good luck in two weeks, pal.

The first one was rough, but Chicago did have to come from behind to win. Anyway....yes, the Pats got drilled into next week in that one, but at the same time, the fact that Ditka made sure that Perry got a TD run but Payton didn't is near unforgivable.

And... a tip of the hat to Tom Coughlin.

Tied for most playoff wins on the road as a coach. Tied with some dude named Landry.

True that Ditka made a huge mistake. Even stranger when you think that he got every single Bear in for at least one play, and somehow forgot to get Payton into the end zone
