Super Bowl MVP's

The most  popular game of the entire year in any sport is the Super Bowl.  The  Super Bowl gets higher television ratings than any other single event  and most of the time rivals that of any past television show. 

Super Bowl MVPs

The  Most Valuable Player of each Super Bowl usually goes onto be a huge  star since many times the MVP is a quarterback.  The MVP award is  chosen by a pane of members of the media and the fans.  The media's  ballots count for 80 percent of the votes while the fans' ballots  count for 20 percent.  Usually the MVP of the Super Bowl has come  from the winning team

Chuck Howley of the Dallas Cowboys is the  only player to have won the award from a losing team.  Remember we  said that the quarterback was the most popular winning position?  A  quarterback has won the award 31 times.  That far outdistances the  running back position that has won it 7 times.   A wide receiver has  won the award 7 times, a defensive end two times, a linebacker four  times, a safety two times, a cornerback one time, a defensive tackle  one time, and a kick/punt returner one time.

Let's look at all of the Super Bowl MVPs.
