Complete the final wave in a single player Tackle Alley game.
Without a doubt the most difficult trophy in the game. The most important advice for taking on tackle alley to a high level is to switch to alternate controls, which has
as spin move. This is much easier to use quickly, and for higher levels you will need to string multiple spins together at once.
Aside from spin, juke is very useful too, which is controlled by the right analogue stick being moved to either side.
There is no substitute for simply trying this a few times. The first time I tried this i reached the mid 70s, and the following time, i reached level 92. The more you try it, the better you will get. The temptation is to give up after a couple of trys because you have to start all over again afterwards.
As an extra thought, you should not worry about scoring points at all, simply worry about getting the touchdown.
I will link to a high level video on youtube which shows possible ways of completing waves 90 - 100.
Best of luck with this trophy; once you get it, you're on the home straight for the platinum.

Boys to Men
Successfully complete all of the drills in Training Camp.
This should be one of the first things you do. It is important to learn to use the controls effectively, since they are very unlike any other american football game out there. Completing all 25 drills in the training camp will net you this trophy.
Good Eye, Strong Arm, Safe Hands
Throw 10 complete passes in a single player Exhibiition or League game.
A trophy which you should accomplish simply by playing through all of the season games. If you have trouble accomplishing this, I suggest playing an exhibition game with an extrely good offense against a poor defense, as well as setting the game mode to easy, and making the game length very long (to give yourself more time to get 10 passes off successfully).
Also remember that it's quite easy to get intercepted, so try hard not to throw into double coverage.
Half Wave There
Reach Wave 50 in a single player Tackle Alley game.
Still fairly tricky though no where near as hard as Parting Wave
. Check out the Parting Wave
section for the best advice on how to complete tackle alley.
Head to Head

Check out Online, On form
. You'll get this on the way to that.
Moving the Chains
Pick up 500 offensive yards in a single player Exhibiition or League game.
This is a little tricky if your playing with standard settings. However, since the settings make no difference to the trophies, it's perfectly fine to tweak theem to 15 minute quarters, and easy to give yourself a much better shot at getting 500 yards.
On the Up
Win the 16 team league in Season mode.
Simply win a 16 team season mode season, and this trophy is yours.
Quarter Pounder, with Cheese
Sack the Quarterback 3 times in a single player Exhibition or League game, without player switching.
There are a couple of ways to do this one. Firstly try and do it during normal game play: choose a blitz play for your defense, and always put yourself as a blitzing Linebacker; then wait for a whole to open up, and go in and level the Quarterback.
An alternative way is to set up an exhibition game against a poor standard offense, and set yourself as a Cornerback. Position yourself quite near your Defensive End, and then simply run around the line of scrimmage for the sack once the snap has gone off.
Win a single player Exhibition or League game without your opponent scoring.
You will almost certainly get this while playing through the seasons. If you can't and are having some trouble, then set up an exhibition game with the lowest time length and on easy. Score once and then try to run the clock out.
Something from Nothing
Create a Custom Team.
If you are following the roadmap this will be your second trophy. Simply enter 'My Teams' and create a Team of your own. You'll need to use one of your created teams in Road to Backbreaker, so you might like to take a little time over it, but if you don't want to, you can simply alter one thing, save it, and you'll get the trophy.
To the Hizzy
Score a defensive touchdown in a single player Exhibition or League game, without player switching.
This can be fairly tough. The real kicker is no player switching. The best way to get this is to take control of a Cornerback, and then give your Wide Reciever a few yards of space. This will make the QB pass it his way. Once the ball is in the air, you have to try to position yourself between the ball and the Reciever, and then hold
to pick it off. You may also find that moving the
stick around to let you look at the QB will help you anticipate the ball.
Once you have the ball, you need to get into the opponents endzone to get this trophy. This will be easier if you get the pick while fairly close to their endzone already.
Armed and Dangerous
Stiff arm an opposing player in a single player Exhibition or League game.
With the ball in your possession, you need to be in agressive mode by holding
, and then pull the right stick in the direction of an advancing defender to stiff arm them and recieve the trophy.

Take a custom team online.
Take a team which you have created online, and you will recieve this trophy

This will come as you are trying to get to wave 100 in tackle alley. Simply spin a few defenders and showboat a little.
In the Bag

Stealing the Feeling
Intercept the ball in a single player Exhibition or League game, without player switching.
See To the Hizzy
for the best advice on getting this trophy
Showboat 25 yards towards your opponent's endzone in a single player Exhibition or League game.
This is quite difficult. The default controls have
as the button to showboat. You'll need to be in lots of space to make it 25 yards without being caught; and to make it worse, if you get hit while showboating, you will fumble the ball.
The best way to do this is to create a custom team with 11 gold offensive players, and play against a team with a terrible defense. Try an outside run play, and cut straight upfield once past the line of scrimmage. Start showboating before you reach the 25 yard line. Hopefully your guys can keep them off you.
The Last Gasp
Convert a 4th down in single player Exhibiition or League game.
You should come across this while playing. If you don't just load up an exhibition game and go for it on 4th and short.
