As hilariously depicted in this week’s Suck For Luck Power Rankings, Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch sacked Denver QB Tim Tebow and lingered long enough to mock him with his own meme. There was a brief debate on whether or not mocking the pose also mocked Tebow’s religion (it doesn’t) and an even more brief, Bleacher Report-style discussion on whether the sack appeal destroyed Tebow’s week-strong “legacy”.
Surely Tebow has to be the maddest of all, right? Tulloch mocked his legacy AND his God and did everything short of pulling down his pants and passing a dump on Tebow’s head. So what do you think, Timmy? KICK HIS ASS, SEA BASS.
“He was just celebrating, having fun with his teammates and I don’t take offense to that,” Tebow said.
“I was bothered that I gave up a sack and that I didn’t break the tackle,” Tebow said. “That bothered me.”
Tebow takes the high road and continues his lifelong quest to become the least-deserving-to-be-made-fun-of person who is kinda-so
BEST OF MAXIM
The Lions' young defensive star said he got some good feedback from the NFL Commissioner during their meeting on Tuesday.
Lions tackle Ndamukong Suh was in New York on Tuesday. Too bad he didn't have time to take in a Broadway play because he could have seen:
Did Commissioner Roger Goodell make a mistake by granting a personal audience with Ndamukong Suh? Will every other frequently-flagged player want a one-on-one explanation of the rules? PFT's Mike Florio thinks so.
Everyone is furiously trying to prove that this 6-2 start capped by a blowout of the Broncos is not the same as 2007’s 6-2 start capped by a blowout of the Broncos. I have something different in mind. In the Old Mother Hubbard series, I attempt to contextualize individual Lions performances. We watch these guys all season long year after year after year, and we lose perspective...
Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow had no problem with Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch striking the prayerful pose known as "Tebowing" after sacking him last week.
Stephen Tulloch of the Lions called it "outrageous" for anyone to think that he was mocking God with his "Tebowing" pose against the Broncos.
Detroit's Brandon Pettigrew, Tony Scheffler and Will Heller provide versatility at an overlooked positiion.
Jim Schwartz won't spend Sunday strapped to a chair in front of a television and watch football all day. But that doesn't mean that the Lions' head coach won't have an interest in games that could have an impact on the NFC playoff race.
For this year's "Fans Top 10" segment, Spartan fans had a chance over the summer to vote for their top linebackers in Michigan State history. The list continues today at No. 5 with Julian Peterson, who holds MSU records for most tackles for loss in a career (48) and also in a single-season (30).
If the play-offs started today we would see Da Bears and the Detroit Lions as the NFC’s wild card teams. The Lions have certainly been this year’s surprise team, and they’ve given us something good and wholesome and brisk (Eminem, I named dropped your endorsement) to cheer for this season.
What could be more fun then having reinvigorated Detroit fans yelling for their team...
