Another note, if I hold the pedal wide open and try to start it, it will start for a second and sound like it's missing before it dies.

try choking the engine... i know it sounds stupid. If you think you have a bad MAF but can't tell through any of the ordinary steps it's time to intervene. Basically if you choke out the air and it's still reading otherwise it could help the engine run. It could be over compensating at idle or under throttle because it thinks it's getting X(air) when it's actually getting Y. same thing as if the the intake boot or ICV hose was busted on our engines pretty much.
