Happy Birthday Y.A. Tittle
Yelberton Abraham Tittle (born October 24, 1926 in Marshall, Texas), better known as Y. A. Tittle, is a former American football quarterback in the National Football League and one tough motherfucker.
In 1961, the 49ers traded Tittle to the New York Giants for guard Lou Cordileone. Tittle went on to lead the Giants to three straight Eastern Division titles. Tittle threw seven touchdown passes on October 28, 1962, in a game against the Washington Redskins that the Giants won 49-34. In 1963, he set what was then an NFL record by throwing 36 touchdown passes. I wish I could have this guy on my fantasy team! Below, if you have 6 minutes to spare a very good interview/biography on Y.A. Go Big Blue.
