Yes, that's how it appears, but it's usually not the same people changing their minds. In this case, when Phillips has a good game, you'll have Phillips fans pointing it out, and when he has a bad game, his detractors will show up. There are of course exceptions: I'm really not a Phillips fan, yet I pointed out that he had a monster game against the Jets.

People really don't change their mind easily.
