Tim Tebow gets 'Tebowed' after sack by Lions' Stephen Tulloch

October 31, 2011 |  7:32 am

That didn't take long. The craze of "Tebowing" has come full circle, with Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch striking the pose made famous by Tim Tebow after sacking the Denver Broncos quarterback Sunday afternoon.

Ever since Tebow was seen kneeling and praying while his teammates celebrated around him after the Broncos' dramatic win over the Miami Dolphins last week, fans everywhere have been posting photos online of themselves imitating the pose in various situations.

Tebow has been in full support of the fad, although he might not feel the same way about Tulloch jumping aboard the bandwagon in a mocking manner.

Then again, Tebow had plenty of other things to worry about during the Broncos' 45-10 loss to the Lions. Tulloch's sack was the second of seven times the Denver quarterback was knocked to the ground, and Tebow was just plain off the mark most of the game for the second week in a row.

Broncos Coach John Fox said after the game he would have to evaluate game film before deciding who his starting quarterback will be next week against the Raiders.

Sounds like Tebow's stint as an NFL starter could be coming to a quick end, allowing scores of "Tebowers" around the world to return to more sensible activities -- like flash mobs and planking.
