ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Tim Tebow says he doesn't begrudge Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch for striking the prayerful pose known as "Tebowing" after sacking him last week.
Tebow said he figures Tulloch was just having fun, not mocking him or his Christian faith by participating in the phenomenon that's become an Internet sensation.
Tebow said he was bothered by one thing about that play: his inability to break the tackle and avoid the sack.
Tulloch's takedown was one of 13 sacks Tebow has endured in his two starts for Denver.
Tebow said Wednesday he has to start throwing the ball away rather than going down. While that would only further hinder his 46 percent completion rate, Tebow said he's only concerned with scoring touchdowns and winning games, not with statistics or style points.
