In just 10 seasons of twelve games or more, he threw for over 40,500 passing yards, including passing for 300 yards in a single game thirty nine times, six of those times in the postseason.

Ironically, Tittle is remembered best for a gimmick: the “alley-oop” play, where he would team up with the 6-foot-3 acrobatic receiver R.C. Owens on a pass play born by accident, and became a calculated pass play. Tittle would loft a high, usually high wobbly 35-45-yard pass, and Owens would out- leap his defenders, just as he did as a hoopster in college. But for Tittle, the 1957 season was one of triumph and agony. Last second victories became a 49ers trademark.

On Friday night, the annual Ely TIgers vs. DIllard Panthers football game was played. On the last play of the 4th quarter, Donnell Wilson made a touchdown pass that won the game. Although some say that the catch was not that great, I think it was due to the fact that he passed his defensive back, leaped to make the catch,and scored the winning touchdown. Part of what made this a great catch was Donnell leaping into the air to catch it. “Wilson made a leaping catch and landed safely in the end-zone capping an improbable come from behind win for the Tigers.” (Document 1, Tom Robard) Another example why it was such a great catch is because he passed his defensive back to make the catch.

The Power Ten- 1. New England Patriots: 9-0 (1) Despite injuries to their offensive line, Dion Lewis, and Julian Edelman, the Patriots remain at number one in the power rankings. Bottom line is this: The Patriots find ways to win games. They were depleted offense so much on Sunday, that Michael Williams, the team’s third tight end, who lined up on the offensive line the previous week, was lined up on the outside as the Z receiver, and they still managed to win the game. One of the best attributes the Patriots have had throughout the Bill Belichick era has been their ability to overcome adversity.

Pat patricia’s defense was exposed many times by the likes of the speedster Tyreek Hill and new offensive superstar in Kareem Hunt. The two combined for over 280 yards alone and forced the new england defense to break more than bend. Tom Brady himself had a disappointing game throwing 16 for 36 and 267 yards with no touchdowns having trouble moving the ball down the field as fast as the chiefs were able to do with ease. Next week against the saints tom brady was able to dissect their
