Running SuperSim will credit you for any Xbox 360 achievements gained in Madden 08 and NCAA Football 08. You don't even have to play a single down to get many of them. 

I went into Play Now and set a game to 15 minute quarters. Immediately I turned on SuperSim to take me to the end of the game. I got 14 achievements for Madden and 4 for NCAA in my first attempt! That is 215 gamer points for Madden in those couple minutes while I had my back turned to the game! By setting up the SuperSim with different specifications (quarter length, difficulty level, teams used) you can grab many of the achievements this way.

Of course you won't get the satisfaction of earning them on your own this way, so it defeats the whole purpose of the achievement system. But if you have some burning desire to increase your gamescore this is an easy way to do so. It is unfortunate that EA didn't force people to actually play the game to earn the achievements.
