    Here's how I did it--you WILL have to go into Player Management in the rosters and change some stats, but that's not nearly as much of a hassle as you'd think.

    1) Use Michael Vick. You may as well.
    2) In his stats, simply turn everything that has to do with running and ballcarrying up to 99. You'll know what's what, and you won't be saving here, so it's not permanent.
    3) This part is important--in a game (give each quarter a high time limit, just in case, and remember to set difficulty to "Rookie"), go into 'Settings' and 'Game Options', go to the bottom, and set 'Player Min Speed Threshold' to '0'. This will make player speed realistic--in other words, if the threshold was set to 100, even you (yes, YOU) could keep up with Vick in a footrace.
    4) Go into 'CPU Skill' and make your opponent suck.
    5) Your best chance at this is a play-action. (The play I used was 'PA WR In".) Since you lowered all the sliders in 'CPU Skill', the other team's defense will basically be looking at their shoelaces while you run past them. By the time they figure out it's not a running play, you should be 15 yards down.

    EDIT: Oop, almost forgot--for those who don't know, if you want your QB to start running immediately press AND HOLD the right trigger (RT). I didn't know that myself first starting out--it's in the Manual from the Pause menu.

    KANNABISK0RPSE Just a note of some QBs who can achieve this quite easily using the steps in this solution

    1) Michael Vick (Philadelphia Eagles)
    2) Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers)
    3) Tim Tebow (Denver Broncos)

    Also, if you have a friend to BOOST with, it helps if they keep the defense away from your QB. Most easily this is done by them selecting the defenders after the ball is snapped, and diving with them, rinse and repeat. I did this method to BOOST the achievement for about 10 friends so far.

    Good Luck!
