Tebowing has become a national craze after fans began to imitate the famously devout Tim Tebow's stance while he is praying during games. Fans take pictures of themselves in the pose in different locations across the world and post them online. Tebowing has become so widespread that during the Detroit Lions' dismantling of the Denver Broncos, linebacker Stephen Tulloch sacked Tebow last week, he struck the pose.
Tebow said that he takes no offense to Tulloch posing, assuming that he was not mocking him or his faith. "He was just celebrating, having fun with his teammates and I don't take offense to that," said Tebow.
The quarterback did let on that he was upset by the sack, his 13th since taking over as starter, and that he needs to learn to throw the ball away if he is being tackled in the backfield. On one play against the Lions the Broncos kept two running backs and a tight end in the formation to help provide Tebow with time. After nine seconds he was sacked without getting rid of the ball.
The Broncos team so far has refused to blame Tebow for playing poorly, but the national consensus is that he has a long way to go to be a legitimate NFL starter. He can't continue to rely on poor mechanics, bad footwork and a long release if he wants to win games, he has to adapt or the Broncos will be looking for another signal caller.
