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, Detroits Stephen Tulloch sacked Tim Tebow and then got down on one knee in front of the Denver quarterback.

God will not be mocked.
my donkeys lost today.
But, Tiebow will be.
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
Tulloch should be hit by a bus!
I don’t get it. Someone care to provide some background?
Detroit Lions = no class jerks.
(Even worse than the Steelers!)
Punk thug....PS.. Broncos ant gping nowhere this season so migh as well let Tebow get more game experience win or lose. Give him some time to grow into the position.
The Lions appear to be trying real hard to this year to forge that new identity.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery
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.
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.
You think Tulloch was praying dogz?
Not much flattery for Tebow as he got blown-out by 35 points.
"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...
“You think Tulloch was praying dogz?”
It is above my pay grade to judge a man in prayer.
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.
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.
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.
Tulloch needs to remember the old saying - Paybacks are Hell.
If it was in earnest, I’m sure Tebow would agree, but, BUTTT, it has been reported as mocking... defy it and you have a point.
Are you of the belief it is your job to mock God or defend those that do............
In the past, Tebow has done the very same thing after throwing a touchdown pass.
Why would there be a payback for Tulloch?
Sure. But only by assholes.
I would never do either.
“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 the NFL to pass a rule that states that “Tim Tebow of the Denver Broncos may not be taunted?”
The low-life Lions are mocking him and Christianity. Wise up. Your comments are not really appreciated.
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 remind me of that little weasel at work that just loves Obama regardless of anything. No Core, No Values, No Belief, No Life. Might as well be a grapefruit and be done with it.
You’ll see Tebow take a stand, exercise his prerogative as regards his faith, but you won’t see him being an Ahole.
No, I simply do not believe that Tim Tebow should be granted special protections, protections that are not granted to other NFL players.
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.
