Amsterdam Admirals
at Rhein Fire 2005

It was an intense competition between two fine running backs while the big difference between the two teams had been the quarterbacks, of which Kurt Kittner had emerged as the champion of the season.

The game was lost by the Admirals by 27–14, but it didn't matter at all as the team was already qualified for the World Bowl and preventing injuries had been the order of Bart Andrus for the last game of the regular season.

And that had resulted in over 35 minutes possession for the Rhein Fire team, which had not stepped on too much resistance.

And so with two victories at the end of the season the Rhein Fire had preserved at least a little bit of their credibility.

Jarrett Payton vs. Joe Smith

Jarrett Payton and Joe Smith were both sent out by the Titans and none of them had been able to land a job in the NFL despite their truly well played NFL Europe season.

Against the Admirals Joe Smith had crossed the 1.000 yards barrier after only 10 games and only the great Lawrence Phillips had been able to do that for the Barcelona Dragons back in 1999.

HC Pete Kuharchek

Rhein Fire head coach Pete Kuharchek had received some serious criticism during the season and unhappy fans had even created a poster saying, "thanks Pete, but please resign" and so he did.

Probably they didn't know, that quarterbacks like Dave Ragone, Kurt Kittner and Kevin Thompson make all the difference and that over the past seasons the Rhein Fire had not been the most blessed with their allocations.
