Y.A. Tittle (1961-1964, 54 Games)

10,439 Yds, 96-68 TD-INT, 55.9 Cmp%, 7.3 TD%, 5.2 INT%, 84.7 Passer Rating

Tittle’s numbers are as good as it got when he played for Big Blue back in the early 60’s. He only played 54 games with the Giants, spending the last four years of a brilliant 17-year career gracing the blue and white.

Of those four seasons, three of them included postseason football. He was a voted into the Pro-Bowl and a voted as a first-team all-pro three times each as well. Tittle threw for north of 3,000 yards in twice. The 1963 NFL MVP winner also did all of these things between the ages of 35 and 38, making it all the more impressive.

Tittle has his number retired by the franchise and is a member of the ring of honor. Had he done it for longer than four seasons, he’d be higher on this list. However, his passing yardage ranks sixth in the team’s all-time record books, holding him back just a bit from the top three.
