The 2012 NFL playoffs has been full of excitement from the young quarterbacks around the league.

If not for some questionable play-calling by Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, the NFC Championship would be headlined by two teams that have starting quarterbacks that are brand new to the league.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, have had amazing playoff games in 2012. 

Kaepernick even set himself a few records in the 49ers' 45-31 win over the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional round.

The pressure will be on in the NFC Championship since the 49ers are favored to win in Atlanta over the Falcons.

Here are the top 10 quarterbacks that have managed to put the pressure behind them and have amazing playoff careers.
