A list of the best Super Bowl MVPs of all time. The Super Bowl has become one of America's greatest traditions. Along with apple pie, there are few things more American than the Super Bowl. The game, which takes places the first Sunday of February, pits the two best NFL teams from the AFC and NFC for the right to take home the Vince Lombardi trophy. Another interesting facet of the game is who will win the Super Bowl MVP. Only one time in the game's history has a member of the losing team been named Super Bowl MVP. Otherwise, you'll see a list of who's who of the NFL's greatest players of all time.

The players who have been named the Super Bowl's standout player are some of the most recognizable names in football.
