NFL via Houston Chronicle ^ | 10.30,11

Posted on 10/30/2011 7:39:07 PM PDT by trumandogz

Tim Tebow was Tebowed in one of the more memorable moments in taunting history.

In a act that surely will be talked about across the country for a while, Detroit’s Stephen Tulloch sacked Tim Tebow and then got down on one knee in front of the Denver quarterback.

So, did they throw the flag on this guy? Taunting is now a foul if I recall.

The Lions appear to be trying real hard to this year to forge that new identity.

Lions 45, Broncos 10... The NFL’s own website billed it as Good vs. Evil, and as Ndamukong Suh said after the Detroit Lions blitzed, battered and mocked Tim Tebow, “Evil prevails.” ... seven sacks... Matthew Stafford had three touchdowns... Lions are 6-2 behind the cheeseheads (still undefeated) and the effin’ 49ers (they’ve got one less loss because they’ve had their bye week; the niners are going to win their division IMO, so they won’t be competition for the Lions if they wind up) hunting for the NFC wild card.

“Evil prevails.”

Somehting tells me that from now on, that (in one form or another) is going to be the headline every day.

Until the Last Day.

Not much flattery for Tebow as he got blown-out by 35 points.

"I figured I'd get to him a couple of times this game and had an opportunity to get it in," Tulloch said. "It was a little fun, man. No disrespect to Tebow. I was just doing a little 'Tebowing.' It's fun when you go out there and get after it like we did."

"He's a young player, he's got a lot to learn," Tulloch said. "He's a winner. He finds a way to win."

"He just needs to clean up some things in his pass game," Tulloch said. "That takes time. We had a good game plan. You've got to realize we've got a good front seven here. So, for his second start this season coming against us, it's kind of rough for him."

Tebow’s a man, mocking a man makes him stronger and wiser... loosing also makes a man stronger and wiser... this team will make its adjustments, and when they do, mockers will take note. A mocker is a pussy deep down...

For the record, as a Lions fan, I love their swagger- but this was just silly. Tebow is a high character Christian with a high profile- mainly fostered by the media. In a league where dog killers and wife beaters are glorified, the one man who honors God gets treated like a criminal. It sickens me. And it’s the worst among the NFL pundits, especially on the NFL network and that jackass Tom Waddle.

He wasn’t mocking Tebow as much as he was mocking Christians who admire Tebow. That’s OK, I’m sure he’ll do just fine in without any support (or revenue) from me.

On the football field, during a game, Tim Tebow after making a great play has been know to get down on a knee and pray.

Tebow has encouraged others to also get down on a knee and pray and has even giving that practice a “Tebowing.”

And now, when other players follow in Tebowing footsteps, instead of being praised, they are being condemned.

That’s not mocking God. The Tebow kneel down with no warning in the middle of everybody else has become a meme, like planking was a few months ago. Tebow has said he likes it. Probably didn’t like it so much today, but that’s life.

Well put.

Says a lot about the decline and fall of our country that Tebow is mocked and ridiculed.

Was a time NFL players were prohibited from having tattoos.

Are you of the belief that Tim Tebow is the only player in the NFL that should be permitted to get on one knee and pray after making a good play?

It seriously sickens me how so many are going after Tebow. The pundits are treating him as though he go through the locker room preaching with a Bible. I’m pulling for the kid, and honestly believe with the right coach and team, he will be a good QB.

No disrespect to Tebow.

Uh-huh.

It would have been real easy to root for Detroit this season, as bad as they've been for so long. But I like my winners classy.

In the past, Tebow has done the very same thing after throwing a touchdown pass.

Why would there be a payback for Tulloch?

Because it was an “in your face” gesture. Should I spell that slower for you?

Neither of us have any idea of if Tulloch was or was not praying.

As for taunting, taunting takes place on almost every play in an NFL game.

Would you like to ban all mocking, taunting and trash talking on an NFL field?

Having been on the sidelines of a few NFL games, I can tell you that mocking, taunting and trash talking occurs on almost every play.

You’ll see Tebow take a stand, exercise his prerogative as regards his faith, but you won’t see him being an Ahole.

Actually, the only thing that matters is how well Tebow plays the game.

He will not get tackled more gently because of his faith.

Defenders will not refuse to intercept his passes because of his faith.

Referees will not give him touchdowns because of his faith.

And opposing players will not refuse to taunt him because of his faith.
