NFL Hall of Famer YA Tittle dead at 90

Former 49ers QB YA Tittle passes away at age 90

A spokesperson for LSU Athletics says that Tittle, a native of Marshall, Tx., passed away overnight.

24, 1926, Tittle played collegiately with the Tigers from 1944-47 before being drafted by the Detroit Lions in 1948.

Tittle played in Baltimore for three years, before going to San Francisco for 10 seasons.

"Y.A. Tittle will forever hold a special place in not only 49ers history but that of the National Football League", Niners owner Jed York said in a statement Monday. Be that as it may, Tittle never really played for the Lions since he chose to begin his profession on the East Coast with the Baltimore Colts of the AAFL. He was a seven-time Pro Bowler, three-time All-Pro, the 1963 Associated Press NFL MVP and a Pro Football Hall of Famer.

Andrea Pirlo announces retirement, speaks on 'joining Conte at Chelsea'
The 38-year-old enjoyed some of his best years under Conte at Serie A giants Juventus, where the pair enjoyed lots of success. That spark within you needs to ignite, and it's not ignited within me yet. "There's not one right and one wrong way".

Tittle's final season in 1964 is mostly remembered as the year he ended up in one of the most iconic photos of all-time: A bloodied Tittle kneeled on the field after throwing a pick-six.

Over his career, Tittle passed for 28,339 yards with 212 touchdowns and 221 interceptions.

Known as "The Bald Eagle" for his receding hairline, Tittle won the NFL MVP award in 1963 while tossing a then-record 36 touchdown passes in a season. 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.

He was 90-years-old. Tittle was suffering from severe dementia.
