I had a lot of trouble getting this one, so here's what I figured out; and it worked on the second try.

Go to "Create-A-Team", make an "All-Madden" team and save it. Then go to "Create-A-Team" again and create an "Air-It-Out" team and save it under a different name. Go to "Settings" and then to "Game AI". Set all user setting to 100. Set all CPU settings to 0 EXCEPT for "Pass Blocking" - set that to 100.

Now go to "Play Now" and load up (press Y) the "All-Madden" team. Move over to the opposing team and load up the "Air-It-Out" team. Select to play the "All-Madden" team and start up the game with 5 minute quarters.

If you win the toss, elect to kick instead of receive to give the other team an extra possession. Now play the kick-off and the first play as normal. When the play calling screen comes up for the next play (third play of the game including the kick-off) pause the game and select "Supersim". Press Y and sim to the end of the game.

The achievement should pop within a few games. I got it on the second game.

EDIT: Thanks to for letting us know that you can do this on 10 or 15 minute quarters as well. That should make it even easier.

If you read this far, you're in luck. It took me maybe 5-10 minutes tops to get this achievement once I tried getting it. All you have to do is go to play now with 2 controllers playing against each other. The teams do not matter. Once you get the ball, pick a basic passing play on one controller and a basic defensive play on the other. Then just have the defensive controller in your hand and the offensive controller on your lap. Before you hike the ball, switch to the corner back on the right side of the screen and just back him up about 20 yards from the line of scrimmage. Then just press A on the offensive controller and precisely 2 seconds later, tap the B button to throw it to the receiver on that side(make sure his route is a streak down the field). Directly after you throw the ball, here's the easy part. Just strafe(LT) to the ball(you'll see where it's going to go) and HOLD the A button when near where the ball is going to go. The defender will effortlessly deflect the ball to the ground. Rinse and repeat 4-5 times. Immediately supersim to the end of the game. Achievement pops, easy GS. Make sure it's set to 5 minute quarters as well.
