Jim goes solo this week when breaking down the hall of fame candidacy of former NFL wide receiver Del Shofner. First, Jim walks through Del's peak from 1958-1963 and covers other NFL greats that had short, but HOF careers (7:46). Next, he talks about similarities between Shofner and Calvin Johnson, how significant making the All-Pro 1st team five times is, and how Shofner compares to other great receivers from the 1950s/1960s (15:49). Finally, Jim discusses the glaring holes in Del's HOF resume (32:23), before stating whether or not he believes Shoftner belongs in the Football Hall of Fame (37:05).
