Remembering Y. A. Tittle (1926-2017) RIP

Remembering Y. A. Tittle (1926-2017).
NFLFootballJournal

On October 8, 2017 the NFL lost one of the gameís greatest quarterbacks.
Y.A. Tittle passed away at the age of 90.

Yelberton Abraham Tittle, or Y.A., played 17 seasons of pro football with three teams: the Baltimore Colts (1948-1950), San Francisco 49ers (1951-1960) and the New York Giants (1961-1964).
He made seven Pro Bowls, named First-team All-Pro four times, won a NFL MVP in 1963 and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971.
His only blemish on his resume is a lack of a World Championship- losing three NFL Championship Games with the Giants in the early 1960ís.

Man, he lived a long time.

Played a long time, too.

I'd have thought Tittle'd won a title or two.

Send ol' Saint Pete deep for one, YAT!
