...1959 San Francisco Highlights led by Captain, Yelberton Abraham Tittle Jr.
Watch some of the roll-outs by Y.A. Title, who was age 33 at the time. He isn't really remembered for his "athleticism", but I can tell you this guy could move and throw exceedingly well. He also had a very strong arm and could throw that watermelon football with the best of them.
He missed the latter portion of the 1959 season with a knee injury and was replaced by a young Jon Brodie. And he shared playing time with Brodie in 1960. By the end of that season, the 49ers were committed to turning over the reins to Brody, which turned out golden for the New York Giants.
