Apr 1, 2014 at 8:22 PM--




San Francisco 49ers legend Joe Montana has made it into the final four of NFL.com's "Greatest Quarterback of All Time" bracket. The March Madness style playoff started with 32 quarterbacks broken up into 4 smaller brackets. Those brackets were the Right Now Bracket, the Generation X Bracket, the Millenials Bracket, and the Baby Boomer Bracket.

Montana was placed within the Generation X Bracket as a number one seed. Others in that bracket included Dan Marino (2), John Elway (3), Jim Kelley (4), Warren Moon (5), Dan Fouts (6), Phil Simms (7), and Boomer Esiason (8).

During the first round, Montana beat Boomer Esiason with 98% of the votes. During the second round, Montana beat Jim Kelly with 92% of the votes. During the third round, Montana beat Dan Marino with 72% of the votes and won the Generation X Bracket.

Now, in the fourth round, he faces Tom Brady, another number one seed and the champion of the Right Now Bracket, who is coming off of a victory over Aaron Rodgers (3). Currently, Montana is in the lead of that battle with 58% of the votes -- his closest battle yet.


Other quarterbacks that remain are Donovan McNabb (5), the champion of the Millenials Bracket, and Johnny Unitas (1), the champion of the Baby Boomer Bracket.

Another 49ers legend, Steve Young (3), was among the original 32 quarterbacks. However, he was defeated in the second round by Drew Bledsoe after gaining only 43% of the votes.
