During a game on a passing play, hold RT, and press X then Y, then release RT BEFORE YOU HIKE THE BALL. You will see the QB's vision, and he always watches the more open WR. Downside: your opponent can see it too, but they probably won't be able to do anything anyway.
First you have to go to franchise. Start a new one, then pick all the teams by pressing LB button. After that sim everything( Preseason, Season, Playoffs, Superbowl, & Probowl)Then quit and the game will ask you if you ant to save select no. You will return to the main menu. You should notice immediately that your ring progress is higher. Also, if you check your gamer level & gamerscore it should be higher as well. Finally save your profile only so that all your hard work doesn't go to waste.
To get the best player out of college with the first pick of the draft start a franchise with the trade deadline off and sim or play the game until week 17. Then look for the team with the worst record and trade your first pick for their first pick and for some reason they always accept letting you choose a guaranteed NFL superstar in the next draft. This strategy also works for second through to the seventh round draft picks.
To easily get to the hall of fame: first create a Superstar and make sure he is a rookie (0 years Experience) then once he is added to your favorite team go to Superstar mode, choose play as a rookie and choose your created superstar. You'll be a in the Hall of Fame in no time!
