YA Tittle, Hall of Fame quarterback, dies at 90

Hall of Fame quarterback Y.A. Tittle died Sunday at age 90, LSU announced. Sports cable network ESPN reported that Tittle died at Stanford Hospital near his home in California.

Although Tittle never won a title with the Giants - he went 0-3 in the NFL Championship game between 1961-31 - he did cement his legacy as one of the best quarterbacks to ever play.

The sports information department at LSU, Tittle's alma mater, confirmed his passing, noting that the National Football League icon was peacefully surrounded by family and friends. He shared playing time during his first two seasons with quarterback Franke Albert and became the 49ers' starter in 1953, which ended up being a Pro Bowl season for Tittle.

Tittle, who was just two weeks away from his 91st birthday, spent 10 seasons with the 49ers from 1951 through 1960.

When Tittle left San Francisco, he went to NY to play for the Giants for the last four seasons of his career. His No. 14 jersey was retired by the Giants.

Tittle's 1957 season was remunerated with many honors: The quarterback was named alliance MVP by UPI, he was named to the Pro Bowl and furthermore named first-group All-Pro without precedent for his vocation.

Over his career, Tittle passed for 28,339 yards with 212 touchdowns and 221 interceptions. Before the 1961 season, Tittle's value was so low that the 49ers traded the 34-year-old QB to the Giants for a rookie offensive lineman (Lou Cordileone).
