In the off season, Tittle is a partner in a successful insurance agency in Palo Alto, but he is far from ready to retire from football. "I'd hate to have nothing to do but sell insurance," he says. "But I do like selling," he hastens to add. "It's like football in some ways. You learn a presentation and work on it until you know it cold. Then, after 15 or 20 years you begin to know what you're doing. You know when a prospect is ready to sign, how to move in, what to say. It's the same as football."
He has some built-in prospects in New York in the Mara brothers, who own the Giants. He's the best insurance they have for another Eastern Conference championship.
