        God Bless him, I met him 25 years ago @ Park City Mall, Lancaster Pa doing a signing @ a slow card show, we talked for several minutes, what a Gentleman. I treasure his signed helmet.

          My dad's guy.
          Great Giant.
          eli acted a little spoiled , he isnt a team player. he cares about his career only as he did during the 2004 draft. he did not mentor webb …Harooni

          i have to look it up i think a few starting qb's have sat out a few games once eliminated…Harooni

            I loved Y. A. growing up, I am very sad to hear this. He still holds our TD pass record in a season (36) and that was a 14 game schedule. Always showed class, God Bless Y.A., RIP

              The week only gets worse. RIP to a great one.
              Just when I don't think it can get any worse, I think of you Ray. I have been to the abyss....thank you for helping me stay positive.

                thats wonderful

                I've had the pleasure of speaking to him on numerous occasions but never got the nerve to say the things I actually wanted to say until the very last time I saw him.

                every other time was due to business and I never wanted to come off like the fan boy that was raging inside me every single time

                the Giants were honoring past players a couple seasons ago at half time ... I made a point to plant my big *** right at the tunnel opening and for just a minute allow myself to become that kid from the Bronx that worshipped the ground he walked on

                he came toward the tunnels and I called out ... "Mr. Tittle!!!" .... he didn't hear and walked right past ... I said it a couple more times when a young security man tapped his shoulder and pointed to me when he got YAs attention

                I put my hand out and he grabbed it ... I became that kid ... I thanked him for the inspiration and told him that my very first NY Giant game was Oct. 28 1962 when he threw 7 TD passes against the Redskins and how it changed my life ...

                he smiled and kind of snickered ... and patted our hands that were shaking with his other hand and said "thank you for those words"

                I replied ...."no thank you sir"

                our hands released and he walked off into the tunnel

                that was the last time I saw YA Tittle

                        Funny thing was YA and Connerly were able to relieve each other when it as called for
                        Ive been saying for years Eli should be strategically replaced with a more mobile QB when situations called for it
