Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Y.A. Tittle, passed away on Sunday night.

LSU Football confirmed his death on Twitter. He became a star for LSU before he was selected with the sixth overall pick of the 1948 draft by the Detroit Lions. 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 led the Giants to three straight championship games but was unable to win a title.

Tittle quarterbacked the Tigers for two seasons, running the T-formation, and leading LSU to a record of 16-3-1 during those two seasons.

However, they have dismantled their opponents so far with a mixture of classical Jose Mourinho defending and brute power up front. Before the November global break, Man United will play against Benfica once more before visiting Chelsea's Stamford Bridge.

At age 34, no one would've been surprised if Tittle's career went downhill in NY, but that's not what happened. It came right after Tittle had thrown an interception and he was hit hard on the play.

Tittle's yardage still stands as the fifteenth most noteworthy single-diversion add up to in National Football League history while his seven touchdowns are as yet tied as the best single-amusement execution by any quarterback in National Football League history. Tittle told ESPN.com as of late that he wasn't a colossal enthusiast of the photograph.

Tittle was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971. Tittle was named the MVP of a game that ended in a 0-0 tie with Arkansas.
