DETROIT – Tim Tebow made an Easter appearance in Austin, Texas, where he discussed sports and religion – and revealed what he was really thinking when the Lions’ Stephen Tulloch famously ‘Tebowed’ him last fall.

Hint: He wasn’t mad. And he thinks it may be encouraging people to actually pray.

“I remember one of the first games, we’re playing the Lions and I get sacked and the guy gets a knee and is Tebowing on top of me, and I’m thinking, ‘That’s really supposed to be mocking me but it’s actually flattering because you’re praying,'” Tebow said, according to NFL News.

“That’s a good thing,” he added. “I don’t know if that’s a cut down; I’m not sure how to take it. Are you praying for me while you’re on top of me or what?”

So, what do you think — is anyone other than Tebow actually praying during a Tebow?

    All I know is the Lions got bounced in their first playoff game. So Tuloch should have been praying for more heart.
