Madden NFL 13 Achievements

Joe Montana Award

As a created QB, surpass Joe Montana on Legacy Score in Connected Careers.  

This achievement is one of the most time consuming ones in the game. This achievement will take about 15 + hours. Create a QB for any team, but just make sure when you go to settings you turn instant starter to on. Make sure to change the difficulty to All Madden.

Start your first game and choose the Falcons playbook by going to advanced settings and changing it to their's. When you get in the game, go to:

Gun Offense
Spread Y Flex Formation
Y PA Deep Outs

Now go through your reads and pass it to whoever is more open. I typically threw to the receiver, and sometimes the receiver. Do this for every play, and on All Madden, you should be able to throw for around 600 yards and 5 TD's a game. My best game was 1,000 yards and 13 TD's. When your in the red zone or fourth down, audible into quick pass and you should be able to pass successfully to either of the receivers cutting across the middle. Be sure for both these plays use hurry up offense by pressing so you can get more plays in without the accelerated clock using up seconds.

Play the first 5 games of each season and be sure to pass the records for single season passing yards and passing TD's. For the first 5 years, make sure to win the superbowl and MVP. SIMULATE THE PLAYOFFS. After 5 seasons, you will not receive very much if not any XP for MVP's and Superbowl's, so you're best bet is to try and break the all - time passing yards and touchdown records.

Thanks BladeMDP for the above tip.

You can either
a) put instant starter on when you start your league
b) pick a team that has a bad quarterback to begin with
