49ers Great YA Tittle Passes Away

Former 49ers QB YA Tittle passes away at age 90 Pro Football Hall of Fame QB YA Tittle dies at 90

He spent 10 seasons with San Francisco (1951-60), appearing in 112 regular season games (78 starts), the fourth-most among 49ers quarterbacks, and registered 1,226 completions for 16,016 yards and 108 touchdowns.

Tittle was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971. He played 10 years in between with the San Francisco 49ers, but had his greatest success in NY, leading the Giants to three division titles in four years in a remarkable late-career surge.

The 6-foot quarterback was a seven-time Pro Bowler, a four-time first-team All-Pro and the MVP in 1963. In 1957, Tittle led the NFL with 176 pass completions, which nearly seems absurd when you realize that only one other player in the league that year completed more than 140 passes.

Y.A. Tittle the quarterback is the boss on the field when the Giants have the ball. When he retired in 1964, Tittle was the National Football League career leader in passing yards and passing touchdowns, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Tropical Depression 17 forms in the deep Atlantic
Depression 17 is located in the open Atlantic Ocean more than 870 miles to the west-southwest of the Azores Islands. It now has maximum sustained winds of 40mph and is moving in a north-northeasterly direction at 5mph.

The photo was taken in 1964, Tittle's last season, by Morris Berman of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

His No. 14 jersey is retired by the New York Giants, and his record of seven touchdown passes in a single game still stands to this day (though it has been tied a couple of times). TIttle was a superstar quarterback whose pro career spanned 17 seasons with the Baltimore Colts, San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants.

Tittle had memory problems later in life related to dementia.
