michael vick would probably stop to bet on a dog fight after 25 yards

I'm doing this achievement with Rodgers for sure.
Rodgers and Vick are definitely the best two for this.

you can get this achievement in 2 ways max up any QB to 99 rating or make a player doing the same thing you should get this in no time

also use Hail mary formation instead of throwing the ball just use the Right Trigger run like the WR

Tebow did this during his first NFL start. Hence the title.

this should def be another vick award not tebow who cares about tebow too much hupe i mean i hope he does good but everyone needs to cool it on him

Comment #15 by CantBurn
Wednesday, August 24, 2011 @ 11:27:06 PM

@14 Oh sure, but nobody needs to cool it on Vick? This guy and Reggie Bush are the Captains of the over-rated squad.

@15 seriously Bush is but not VIck he's proved he is now an excellent qb

Comment #18 by SuzukiRider452
Monday, August 29, 2011 @ 08:20:40 PM

@14-16 I'm from N.O. and i was ecstatic that Reggie is gone but Vick is dangerous anywhere on the field. Everyone knows he is better than 90% of the RB's in the NFL and last season he showed his pocket passing has improved drastically.

i'm going to be trying this with Cam Newton...i can't stand Vick...not because of the dog thing, i have hated him since him and his thug brother were @ VT. Can't stand either on a personal basis

Comment #24 by BMC VP

Ran in a 68yd TD with Vick and got the other QB rushing achievement too

Comment #25 by iceman87gt
Thursday, September 01, 2011 @ 12:16:12 AM

I've been having trouble with this one, I tried it a few times with Rodgers (wound up getting the Vick award, but I could never bust it for a 40 Yard TD), I've gotten 40 yards with Vick a few times but I can't get into the endzone on a 40 yard run. I'm thinking running a read option is the best way to bust it unless you haven't been taking off with Vick in which case you can still catch the D off guard (after you run a few times they start staying at home).

Comment #26 by kak2sjak
Thursday, September 01, 2011 @ 05:56:11 AM

got this and the Adrian Peterson award on the same play. Cam Newton as QB vs the Bills. QB sneak on my 20. they lined up for man coverage with nobody in the backfield and i ran right past them. just a tip for those having issues

Comment #27 by iceman87gt
Thursday, September 01, 2011 @ 11:54:09 AM

just realized I had the speed threshold at 100, turned it down to 0 and the next game I got this (with Vick, though I did do some upping with his ratings)

Comment #28 by ShaneKarmaNY

@ 14 Why cause he's white?

Comment #29 by DoubleOT
Saturday, September 03, 2011 @ 12:12:15 AM

anyone know if supersim kills this achievement? I had Vick do a lot of the running acheivements, but supersimmed to play offense only, and I got no acheivements.

Comment #30 by CALIBOYBLAKE
Saturday, September 03, 2011 @ 10:55:50 AM

is speed threshold at o better or at 100 better for this achieve. never understood what that actually meant so i always just left it at 50

Comment #31 by SuzukiRider452
Sunday, September 04, 2011 @ 10:39:45 AM

Use the Broncos and put in Teebow. the Broncos have a run formation that is specifically for the QB (Gun Heavy). Receive the kick and pound away. You can get this achievement and the 130+ yrds with a QB.

Comment #32 by Challenger7373
Monday, September 05, 2011 @ 05:32:24 PM

I used Michael Vick.
-To make it the easiest this is what I did:
-In game options I put Player Min Speed Threshold to 0.
-Gameplay on rookie.
-I put all player skill up to 100 and CPU skill down to 0.
-From the 40 yard line.
-Use QB sneak and I passed them all up and got the achievement.

If you do this w/ michael vick, then you can get 2 achievements in one game. Like they say: "Kill two birds w/ one stone."

Just got it at the last 30 seconds left in the game. Used Vick against the Broncos (I'm a Raiders fan, so it made me feel good). Ended up using goalline qb sneak and held rb to protect the ball. Next thing I knew I broke tackles and ran 60 yards for the td. Also got three other achievements for this:) but not the Oakland Raiders achievement:( (I won 52-0).

Comment #39 by ItsCHARLES
Wednesday, September 21, 2011 @ 01:19:53 AM

I did it with Terrelle Pryor of the Raiders witha QB sneak up the middle. Every time I tried to do it with Vick the other team always had a LB spy on me.

I got this with Aaron Rodgers doing a QB Sneak. The speed boost I got was pretty ridiculous lol

@ 15 16 AND 17, when has vick proved himself? he's played ONE year after the dog fighting thing and everybody is acting like he is so wonderful, hes thrown more picks than his jersey number in less games than his number, don`t sound too good to me, but you guys act like he is christ rebirthed

Comment #49 by anti kitten
Tuesday, November 01, 2011 @ 02:21:05 AM

the best way to get this is to use the Panthers. there is a designed QB run in
the Gun formation and under the wild cat spread. i got the adrian peterson,
the tim tebow and michael vick achievements doing this.

Comment #50 by Foreman 719

I got both QB rushing achievements on my friend by doing a QB sneak on my 19 with Vick... it was incredible

Idk why people keep suggesting QB sneak. the few times I tried it, the QB just dives forward.

Comment #54 by D347H0FL0V3
Sunday, January 01, 2012 @ 06:39:26 PM

Yeah, definitely best done with the Eagles since their playbook has more than just 3 QB specific plays.

Comment #55 by surfoot
Thursday, January 05, 2012 @ 10:22:47 AM

2 controller, go out of shotgun, make all of the defense man coverage on the receiver on the left, then with a qb with 80 speed or higher just run right side
