GREEN BAY - While college basketball fans go crazy over the NCAA tournament, we've created a bracket for diehard Packers backers to choose the ultimate Green Bay football legend.

Each week, you can vote for the winners of a tournament matchup until the champion has been crowned.

Beginning with a field of 68, we’ve “seeded” players, coaches and others based on their contributions to the game in northeastern Wisconsin. The top seeds — Vince Lombardi, Bart Starr, Brett Favre and Ray Nitschke — include players with retired numbers and a coach whose name adorns the NFL's championship trophy. Just a notch below are the second seeds: Curly Lambeau, Don Hutson, Reggie White and Tony Canadeo.

They’re followed by players whose contributions to Titletown football landed them in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, as well as players the team has honored by placing their names on the façade inside Lambeau Field.

Lesser players received seeds of 7 through 16, as did players who are active. That’s why the team’s current quarterback, a potential Hall-of-Famer, will have to beat retired President Bob Harlan and some other legends if he hopes to reach the finals.

Go to our bracket page to pick winners. Click on the tabs at the top of the screen to choose the appropriate round.

After the "play-in" round, you'll have multiple days to vote in each round. We'll take 24 hours between rounds while we tally the results. Come back each round to make your votes count. Just click on the round and follow the prompts.

The voting dates:

Play-in round: Through 12:01 a.m. Wednesday.
Round 1 voting: 12:01 a.m. Thursday to 12:01 a.m. March 20 
Round 2 voting: 12:01 a.m. March 21 to 12:01 a.m. March 23
Round 3 voting: 12:01 a.m. March 24 to 12:01 a.m. March 27
Round 4 voting: 12:01 a.m. March 28 to 12:01 a.m. March 30
Round 5 voting: 12:01 a.m. March 31 to 12:01 a.m. April 4

We'll announce the winner April 5.
