3. Y.A Tittle (1961-1964)
Accolades: 1963 NFL MVP, three-time Pro Bowler, two time First Team All Pro member, two-time NFL leader in passing TDs, enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Despite not having much success in the postseason, Y.A Tittle’s level of talent in the regular season was unmatched: leading the NFL in TDs in back to back seasons while also winning the NFL MVP in 1963.
During his tenure with the team, Tittle would start 48 games. He would go on to throw for 10,439 yards, 96 TDs and 68 interceptions. While Tittle would often come up short during the playoffs, throwing for 1 TD and 10 interceptions in the four postseason games he appeared in, the success he saw in the regular season was truly special.
Tittle likely would’ve been much higher on the list if he had played more than four seasons with the Giants. However, his four season span of greatness is just enough to earn him the No. 3 spot on the list.
