Notes

  1. ^ When the NFL MVP is referred to without mentioning the source it is generally the Associated Press MVP.
  2. ^ Modesto Bee, December 17, 1948, pg. 17
  3. ^ It is a common misconception that Gino Marchetti was the Associated Press Most Valuable Player in 1958. In fact, sources such as NFL.com and others list him as such.[1][2] The actual winner was Jim Brown, with 22 votes. Marchetti was the AP NFL Lineman of the Year, an award that existed from 1956 through 1960. Most current newspapers reprint the annual Associated Press release, which at some point apparently confused the awards for the 1958 season.
  4. ^ Along with the AP, UPI, the Newspaper Enterprise Association (NEA) MVP was considered official and was in the honors section of the NFL Record and Fact Book and its awards are listed in Total Football and Total Football II. The Awards appeared in the World Almanac from the early 1960s though 1996.
