Lions linebacker meant no disrespect by Tebowing

Stephen Tulloch was one of at least two Detroit Lions players to give “Tebowing” a try on Sunday when their team routed the Denver Broncos 45-10 at Invesco Field.

Tulloch went to one knee and made the Tebowing pose after a sack.

It was no disrespect to Tebow," the linebacker said, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post. "I was able to get him and had a little fun with it and decided to do some Tebowing. I saw it on websites, saw it on 'SportsCenter' and I said: 'You know what? I'm going to try it out.' "

Isn’t feigning prayer pretty disrespectful?

"No, not all," Tulloch said. "I wasn't praying. I was just having fun with it."

If Tebow stays on as the starting quarterback – and that’s got to be a big if for coach John Fox – we could see more defenses give Tebowing a try in future weeks.
