The newest fad surrounding Tim Tebow, "Tebowing," is defined by the website fueling the craze this way: "to get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different."

After sacking Tebow in the first quarter of Sunday's Denver-Detroit game, Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch jumped on the popular meme by showing off his version of "Tebowing":


Tulloch's mini-taunt has elicited mixed reactions: Plenty of people found it a humorous jab at the Broncos' quarterback; others complained that Tulloch was being disrespectful by making fun of Tebow's faith.

"I wasn't mocking him or anything," Tulloch said. "Everyone is doing it. I figured if I got to him I would do it, too."

Tulloch also found Tebow after the game and "just told him to keep his head up."
