Tim Tebow becoming a HOF QB or the bud light commercial where the alien women come and say they must mate with the men of this planet to save their race?
I've got the commercial.
The universe is big. Really, really, really big. There's bound to be some kind of life form somewhere, and maybe that life form looks just like us, and maybe they're all hot women. You don't know!
What I do know is that Tim Tebow is inaccurate, has a slow release, overrated arm strength, and a full-back's mentality. Does that sound like a HOF QB to you? No.
"But what about the intangibles?!"
**** intangibles! I'm sick of people talking about intangibles. If all it took to be a great QB is a likable personality and a "desire to win" then the league would be littered with great QB's, but that's not all it takes.
You need to be able to make crisp, accurate passes in this league. Tebow has never and will never be able to do that.
Could he be an ok QB? Sure. Maybe 20 TD's & 10 picks in a good year type of QB, but I just don't see him being a good QB, and certainly not HOF caliber.
Hot Alien women coming to mate, much more likely.

Oh, easily Tim Tebow making the HOF.
You didn't specify what HOF, and Tebow is pretty much a shoe-in to make the College Football Hall of Fame as a QB.
Now that we've cleared up the Tebow side of things, let's look at your side of the argument. I'm willing to allow for the existence of aliens - I once passed out outside of Greenwich Village, and when I woke up, my car was gone, my mouth had a funny taste, and my ass hurt so much I couldn't sit down for a week. Alien exploration of my body cavities is the only explanation that makes sense.
But even if aliens did want to come down to Earth, why in God's name would they bribe men with Bud Light? They obviously did enough research to see that there could be interspecies mating, yet they can't figure out that Bud Light tastes like warm piss even when it's cold? I mean, I could understand something like Blue Moon or Corona, or even Bud Light Lime if you're going to stay on-brand, but Bud Light? Might as well offer up a pruno and detergent cocktail.

The CFB HOF? Why not have a Minor league baseball HOF?
I was talking pro-football HOF.
Now that we have that settled.
Your argument supports my premise. Clearly the aliens had interest in you......sexually. Why else would they be messing around in your fudge factory?
And there have to be people who like Bud light, why else would they keep making it? And let's get out of the beer isle for a second.
WHY WOULD THEY HAVE TO BRIBE MEN PERIOD? The Bud light was just a plus (or a minus), it certainly wouldn't deter straight men.
Tebow completes 50% of his passes in a blow-out loss and everyone is amazed, if his expectations are that low what does that say about his HOF chances?
Not only that, his team SUCKS. He doesn't have the benefit John Elway did of having a great D and making him look good. He has no run game, McNumbnuts traded away every talented receiver they had, and their O-line is nothing like it used to be.
Tebow is at-best, a serviceable starter.

Then it's a shame you didn't say so in your first argument.
And there have to be people who like Bud light, why else would they keep making it?
Laxatives, antifreeze, colon cleanser...there are plenty of uses, just none that involve enjoyment.
WHY WOULD THEY HAVE TO BRIBE MEN PERIOD?
Good point, yet another reason why this scenario is unlikely to be the case.
How can you be so down on Tebow after one start? For a rookie starting off the bench near the end of the season with a bad supporting cast, he really did a pretty good job all things considered. He wasn't great, but anyone who was expecting him to blow away the Raiders needs a reality check.
Not only that, his team SUCKS
Yeah, I mean, who's ever heard of a team getting better over a 15 season period of time? I sure haven't.
Teams get better and worse all the time, if Tebow becomes better and actually plays at a HOF level, the Broncos will be a better team anyways. Worked for Dan Marino and the Dolphins.
(And before you say it, I didn't compare Tebow to Marino. Feel free to pursue it, however)
