Hall of Fame quarterback YA Tittle dies at age 90

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.

Tittle, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971, played his college football at LSU, where he was a two-time all-SEC honoree. Following his playing career, Tittle re-joined the 49ers in 1965 as an offensive consultant, a role he kept for five seasons (1965-69).

Tittle Jr. died Sunday night at Stanford Hospital near his home in Atherton, Calif. The Giants, however, lost all three of the National Football League championship games they played in with him under center - twice to Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers and once to George Halas' Chicago Bears.

OnePlus 5 goes out of stock on United Kingdom store - OnePlus 6 incoming?
The recently released OnePlus 5 continues in that tradition - albeit at a higher price than we've become accustomed to. The OnePlus 5 already runs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, which has no successor in sight for now.

One of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play has reportedly passed away.

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. Tittle was suffering from severe dementia. He threw for 28,339 yards and 212 touchdowns during his 15-year career. Tittle told ESPN.com as of late that he wasn't a colossal enthusiast of the photograph.

In the pros, Tittle once threw for 505 yards and 7 touchdowns in a single game - lofty numbers even by today's pass-happy standard. The highlight of his career in Baton Rouge was a 1946 season where he led the Tigers to a 9-1-1 record and a Cotton Bowl appearance.
