Yep, social media blew up.

The Eagles' announcement that the team had "released" coach Chip Kelly dominated Twitter and other online forums Tuesday night.

Former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb claimed some foresight in the matter.

Cowboys Hall-of-Famer Michael Irvin weighed in with florid prose and capital letters.

Someone going by the name "Broke Boy" posted a smiling picture of former Eagles coach Andy Reid and wrote:

A tweeter calling himself "Jabs" had a laugh:

Josh Gondelman, a comedy writer, pretended to offer some heartfelt advice.

Philly.com commenter @jim715 added an exclamation point.

"Chip, a quick three and out, just like his offense all too often."
