There are only two defensive players who have won the NFL MVP. They are Alan Page and Lawrence Taylor, winning it in 1971 and 1986 respectively.

1979 NL MVPsThe 1979 National League MVP was won by two players. Keith Hernandez, and Willie Stargell.
In 2009 Albert Pujols won the National League MVP, and Joe Mauer won the American League MVP.
He won 5 league MVP's and 6 NBA final's MVP.
Frank Robinson was National League Rookie of the Year in 1956, American League Triple Crown winner in 1966, National League MVP in 1961 and American League MVP in 1966. I don't know of a second.
Yes. He won the Hart Trophy (League MVP) and the Pearson Trophy (MVP, voted by players) after the 2006-2007 season.
Tim Duncan won both the MVP and Finals MVP in the 2002-03 Season
offensive mvp, defensive mvp, greatest homeruns
6 times (so far). Bart Starr (1966) Terry Bradshaw (1978) Joe Montana (1989) Emmitt Smith (1993) Steve Young (1994) Kurt Warner (1999) Brett Favre (1996) won the League MVP, but the Super Bowl MVP that year was surprisingly awarded to Desmond Howard. Peyton Manning will obviously have an opportunity to become the 7th in the 2009 season, when he plays in Super Bowl XLIV.
There has never been a three way tie for MVP in a single league, however, in 1979 there was a tie between Keith Hernandez of the St. Louis Cardinals and Willie Stargell of the Pittsburgh Pirates for the National League MVP. With Don Baylor being the American League MVP that year, it could be said that 1979 was the year that three players were named MVP. This also occurred in 1930 when both the Sporting News and the Baseball Writers Association of America selected the MVP. Joe Cronin of the Washington Senators was selected as American League MVP by both organizations and Bill Terry of the New York Giants (Sporting News) and Hack Wilson (BBWAA) of the Chicago Cubs were selected National League MVPs.
Through Super Bowl XLIII, odds are a quarterback will be named MVP of the Super Bowl. 22 MVPs were quarterbacks 7 MVPs were running backs 6 MVPs were wide receivers 3 MVPs were defensive linemen 2 MVPs were safeties 2 MVPs were linebackers 1 MVP was a cornerback 1 MVP was a kick returner Though there have been 43 Super Bowls, there have been 44 Super Bowl MVPs. This is because there was a tie in the voting for MVP in Super Bowl XII, therefore, two players were awarded the MVP. Both players were defensive linemen.
