March is all about the brackets, and the NFL obviously doesn't want to be left out.

The folks at NFL.com have created their own version of March madness, putting together a field of 32 of the best quarterbacks in NFL history. Who will emerge as the champion? That will be up to the voters.

The bracket is divided into four 'regions' based on NFL historical eras. The No. 1 seed in the Baby Boomer region is former Baltimore Colt Johnny Unitas, who faces No. 8 Bob Griese in a first-round matchup.

Other regions include the Generation X region (No. 1 seed: Joe Montana) the Millenials region (No. 1 seed: Brett Favre), and the Right Now region (No. 1 seed: Tom Brady).

Ravens fans surely won't be completely pleased with the selection committee, as Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco failed to earn one of the eight bids in the Right Now region. They went to, in seeded order, Brady, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, Philip Rivers, Russell Wilson and Eli Manning. No word on whether Flacco and Andrew Luck are lobbying the committee for a play-in game in Dayton.

Ravens fans, though, do have a rooting interest in the Millenials bracket: Steve McNair is the No. 6 seed and faces third-seeded Steve Young in a tough first-round matchup.

Voting for first-round matchups can be done through Tuesday, March 25, here, where you can also see the full 32-team field.
